Hot Dog Soup

Recipe by  

"My mother, Marea Mooney, made this soup for her six children. It is a warm and filling mixture of potatoes, green beans, and frankfurters that's easy to make and perfect for a cold winter day. Adjust ingredients to taste. We all love it; hope you do, too! Serve with salad and warm rolls."

To me this did not sound like a very good meal my husband thought, how weird hot dog soup, said he would not like it, however I was really surprised at how good this soup did turn out and my husband loved it too!! It was very easy to prepare, I would highly recommend this recipe.

While the end result was good, adjustment was needed along the way. 1) The main problem was that this was exceedingly bland; I alleviated this by adding bay leaves and pepper. 2) A 14.5 oz. can of chicken broth would have been too much; an 11 1/2 oz. can worked just fine. 3) Green beans are not the right vegetable for this soup, so I used mixed vegetables. 9 oz. was not enough; I used 16 oz. I'll make this again because it was simple and the kids ate it, but with the above changes.

Wow, what a good idea! It was great. I replaced the beans with a can of peas though and also a can of corn. we all loved it. It was more of a stoup, and very filling in these hard times.

I was a bit skeptical to try this out, but I had all the ingredients on hand, so I gave it a whirl. I also added garlic powder, a bit of oregano, and a dash of basil. Low and behold, this was pretty darn tasty! I especially love the soup base, yum. But I think green beans were the wrong veggie choice for this soup, and I love green beans. Thanks for the recipe, Nancy!

Great starter recipe! I made the following changes: I used my standard soup base/starter (onion and celery sauteed on EVOO with a pinch each of rosemary, thyme, marjoram and a bay leaf, add two chicken bouillon cubes, crushed, one 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes and two cups boiling water) then added three cups Schwan's mini bow tie pasta and vegetable blend and 1/2 package turkey hot dogs, sliced. My kids absolutely love it and I love that I can satisfy their never ending demand for hot dogs with something balanced and healthy. Thanks! :-)
