Hot Dog Helper: Matt-Man Hits a Home Run Once Again!!

Okay...So yesterday I said that I was going to make Hot Dog Helper. Using a box of Hamburger Helper I decided to use instead, some nitrite laden links.

While some of you scoffed and prayed for Schmoop's alimentary canal, all went well. Allow me to show you... (all pics enlarge by clicking)

First, I cut some dogs and threw them into a hot skillet...


Next, I added some onions and bacon pieces to the mix...


Look how burnt and caramalized everything is getting...


I then added the Hamburger Hashbrown mix to the wet, hot, sexy skillet. Mmmmmmmm.


Some lesser folks would stop at the skillet process. Me? Being the hot ass cook that I am, I put the crap into a baking dish.

And then I added the cheese sauce...


And sprinkled a liberal amount of parmesean cheese...

And then I put it in the oven at 400 degrees for 18 minutes so the much maligned, yet uber-tasty, Hot Dog Helper comes out like this...

And, after sitting...oh excuse me...resting for a few minutes, I plate it up with a glob...oh excuse me...a dollup, of sour cream, for Schmoop.

Schmoop dug it, and to all of you nay sayers out there? Suck it. Matt-Man is once again rounding third and heading home.

Cheers!!

Honestly, it doesn't look too bad at all. I'm not a big fan of hot dogs, but with the onion, bacon, and sour cream I think I could manage.

Matt-Man said...

Lady: It was pretty damn good. As Schmoop said, "Everything you make sounds awful on paper, but it tastes great in actuality." Cheers D!!

Dana said...

I'm telling you, I think Food-Buzz is in your future! They have a category for processed meat dishes, right??

boo said...

Of course it's look awful on paper! Paper isn't that good at making food look tasty, unless it's that really glossy kind and the food isn't real food, it's fake food manufactured specifically for imaging onto really shiny paper. What? *shrug* Glad it worked out Matty! A good meal is well worth the pursuit, if you ask me.

I'm looking at that blue plate special and can't for the life of me come up with a thing to say.

Jay said...

That actually looks pretty good. I'm still not to sure about that cheese-like product in the cheesy hashbrowns. And um, are those real potatoes too? I need to check that stuff out.

Paula Deen would have put a stick of butter in there too. LOL ;-)

Hope said...

I cannot imagine the effect that might have on your lower GI tract, I can only hope that you aren't the type to pull the covers over Schmoop's head when it hits. :)Congrats on hitting all the pertinent food groups!!!

Desert Rat said...

That's pretty dang creative! "Hot Dog Helper." You are a hoot, I'm tellin' ya!

Scott Oglesby said...

I’m not kidding when I say that I’d pay to eat that goulash. It looks absolutely delicious. And sour cream to top it off? MMmmmmmmm! That’s just one more thing that I can’t get over here, and am craving like a MF’R!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: I'm kinda like 3M. I don't make processed foods...I make processed foods better. Cheers Dana!!

Boo: Ha. Your mind is as funny as you are lovely. Cheers Boo!!

Jeff: I don't know if that's good or bad? Cheers Jeff!!

Matt-Man said...

Jay: Ha. Indeed she would. I think I used a total of 3 tablespoons of buttah in the whole thing. Cheers Jay!!

Hope: It is now the day after and both of our colons are still operating as they should so we may be alright. Cheers Hope!!

Rat: Hee Hee. A hoot. I like that. One of my dreams is to open a diner that serves stuff like this. No, I'm not kidding. Cheers Adorable One!!

Matt-Man said...

Scott: A world without sour cream? That's just wrong. We have leftovers if you can make it over here. Cheers Scott, I hope the recovery is going well!!

Dianne said...

I love that you said 'carmelized'

Matt-Man said...

Dianne: Let's just end this Kabuki Dance and have hot, animalistic sex with each other. Cheers Di!!

Christine said...

So you take some cow and pig lips, hoofs, intestine lining and snouts...add the carcinogenic nitrosamines of bacon...throw on some insecticide full potatoes and top with processed salt filled cheese food?

Sounds delicious!

Matt-Man said...

Christine: Ha. You captured everything perfectly except for one thing. You left out the spoiled, curdled, dairy product that is the beauty of Sour Cream. Cheers Christine!!

Phfrankie Bondo said...

...perhaps you should call it "Weenie Surprise"!...

Matt-Man said...

Phfrankie: Ha. If Schmoop was basing the name off of me, she would call it, "Weenie Disappointment." Cheers P-Man!!

Micky-T said...

I know I'd eat it, but that wouldn't surprise a lot of people.

Matt-Man said...

Micky: I say that to women all the time. Maybe that's why I never get laid. Cheers Mick!!

Bond said...

ummm... well...ummmm....

I have absolutely nothing dude...

Have a good weekend and maybe you can tell us about your digestive troubles over the next two days

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Mangia This, Guinea Boy...Have a lovely weekend Vin. Cheers!!

Bond said...

Now we are onto Guinea Boy? You know that the Italian Sailors were the pride of the seas back in the day and they were paid a Guinea a day..thus the term - more of an honor then a put down you mick potato plugging b**tard!

Stay warm

Matt-Man said...

Bond: I know, that's why I said that. I'm cool like that. Cheers!!

Bond said...

You are with stuff like that...with food..ummm not so much bwahahahahahahaahaa

HUGS to keep you warm this weekend

Lu' said...

The thought of that meal makes me salivate and not in a good way. I still say yuck to the dish and yum to the cook :)

Dice Mardell said...

Although I'm sure that dish is totally edible, and I know I would eat it, it begs the question:

what the heck did you "Help" it with? it looks like sourkraut. The only Helper™ I am familiar with is elbow macaroni.

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Pfffft. Everything I make is like manna from Heaven. Cheers!!

Lu: Ha. I can live with that. Cheers Lu!!

Dice: I noticed that as well...The "kraut" you see is hashbrowns. Cheers Dice!!

cathy said...

Jesus wept Matt! that's a heart attack on a plate.Not even a side salad in sight.WANT SOME.

Matt-Man said...

Cathy: Ha. What's a salad? Good to see ya Cathy. I hope all is well and I'll mail some of this incredibly good dish to ya. Cheers Cathy!!

MysteryChick said...

Matt-Man, you may just have found the perfect cure for a hangover. That looks fantastic, I'd like to try it with keilbasa. MMMM!

I'm wondering if that little prepackaged bit of artificial yumminess is an Ohio thing for I have never seen the likes of it here in the wilds of Boston.

Matt-Man said...

Mystery: It would make fantastic hangover food, and kielbasa would be good in it. The pre-packaged stuff is just Hamburger Helper. You have that don't ya? Cheers Chick!!
