This recipe is a favorite with my children who are now grown and want me to make it when they come to visit. It is filling and most of all fun food using the hot dogs and getting little ones to eat their veggies too!
1Fill 5 qt pot with water and add hot dogs cut into 1/2 in. pieces and thawed green beans. Cook until done.
While cooking start the roux.
2To make roux: melt butter in sauce pan, whisk in flour until smooth Add seasonings and 1/2 of milk whisking until smooth, add onions and rest of milk mixing well. Bring to a boiling start and remove from heat.
3Drain hot dogs and green beans and return to pot. Pour roux into hot dogs and mix thoroughly. Layer bottom of 9 x 13 in. pan with 1/3 of the croutons. Pour 1/3 of mixture over croutons. Alternate layers of croutons and mixture ending with croutons on top. Sprinkle cheese on the top layer of croutons.(If you choose add some cheese with each layer.) Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
