Veggie Hot Dog Mush

This recipe has a connection to me...but then again, shouldn't all food? Anyhow this recipe is a variation of something my mother threw together one year when we were kids and stranded in a hotel room waiting for our van to be repaired.

All she had was an electric skillet to cook with and whatever had been left in the cooler we used when camping on vacation. I loved it then and I love it now. We have just veggie-ized it. Hope you like it. And for all you carnivores, by all means add sausage or meat dogs, but trust me when I say the veggie dogs are AOK in our book.

This recipe feeds 4-6 of normal servings.

1 cup of raw rice(cooked)
3-5 T olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 veggie dogs per person, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 can whole tomatoes(28 ounces)
Salt and pepper
Cook rice. In a large pot, heat oil. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add veggie dogs and pan fry until they have a browned sides. Take canned tomatoes and break up(either by cutting up or by squishing in your hand), and add to dogs and onions.

When rice is finished, take one cup of cooked rice and add to mixture. You will have left over cooked rice. Use it for a future recipe, or if you like a thicker dish, you may add all of the rice. Heat through and serve hot.
