    My husband loves this! I substitute the hot dog and get a chicken sausage of some sort. I also add butter, milk, salt,garlic and pepper to the potatoes just like I would to mashed potatoes. This dish is amazing!!

    Substituted a little bit of ground beef for the hot dogs, but it just needs some more flavor. A little bit too bland.
