Hot Dog Soup

I know, I know, not the most flattering name ever, but it is what it is!

This soup has been made by all of my Aunties. If someone wants to chime in and let me know where it actually started, I will give credit where it is due.

Don't let the idea of it get to you. My husband fought me on this for YEARS. One day he actually tasted it...and now he asks for it specifically!
Such a comfort food! A big bowl of this on a cold New England night!
Bite sized potato
Potato, carrots, and onion cooking separate
Mix ingredients and season

1 family size can Cream of Mushroom soup

3 potato diced

3 onions, sliced

3-5 hotdogs, sliced into rounds

Directions: Boil the potato, onion, and carrot until just about done.

Season to taste (seasoned salt and pepper work well)

  1. This looks like something I would have eaten in my childhood! I love this idea. Do you think Cream of Chicken soup would work as well? (Not a fan of the mushroom soups)

    1. I think any of the creamed soups would work well! Good idea!

    2. This would be really good made using cream of celery soup.

  2. Oh wow...this sounds amazing!! :) YUM!! Pinned again!

  3. This sounds like a really lovely vintage recipe, Jay - one of those things that sounds different, but is actually amazing! Thank you for sharing your Hot Dog Soup with us at Hearth and Soul.

  4. Been eating this all my life. It was a quick and easy for mom to make for us kids and because of the hot dogs we loved it. No cream soups in hers though just milk and she mashed a few of the potatoes to thicken it. She also added some chopped celery to it too. 65 years later and I'm making it for my kids and grandkids now.

    1. Good hints John, I will have to try them!
