Recipe: Lit’l Smokies Grilled Hot Dog Mac ‘n Cheese

We love this mac for busy weeknight meals, casual weekend entertaining and the lunchbox!

6-8 servings

1 package Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies (about 36 in the pack)
16 ounces macaroni, cooked to package directions
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil, divided
3 cups shredded cheese (cheddar & mozzarella combo is great!)
1 cup half and half
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Cook the macaroni, place in a large bowl, toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil & set aside.
Heat the other tablespoon of oil in a grill pan over medium high heat. Grill the hot dogs for about 5 minutes or until browned on each side. Remove them from the hot pan with tongs. Let cool a bit & slice the hot dogs into thirds.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat, add the cheese, half and half & garlic salt. Cook about 5 minutes stirring often until you have a well combined, creamy sauce.
Toss the macaroni with the cheese sauce. Fold in most of the hot dogs & place some on to top for serving.
