Bubba Hot Dogs

Patti Burns


My son Brandon (aka:Bubba) wanted a special hot dog when he was little once while Granny Peg was in Idaho in 1988 when his little sister was born. Well, our quick thinking granny goes to the fridge and grabs the hot dogs, some left-over mashed potatoes and the grated cheese. And the rest is Burns family history, the Bubba dog was born. They are a STAPLE with our hot dog eating children and grandchildren. I was going to share them with Oscar Mayer weinermobile folks when I won a visit for our town last year, BUT they came while I was in Vegas, so I will share it on justapinch.com instead. :)
