Move over Marie Callender: Shira's Hot Dog Pot Pie

We take hot dogs seriously in this household. Perhaps a tad bit too seriously. Regardless, anytime we can be inspired to substitute hot dogs into a recpie, I'll nag Shira to give it a try. It's not usually a fight. In this house, hot dogs are Thanksgiving, Rosh Hashanah and any other holiday worthy.

Recently, I suggested we do this with Chicken Pot Pie. She started with this Kosher friendly recipe, left out the ingredients we didn't have handy (carrots and celery), added in a few veggies we did have (mushrooms and broccoli), and most importantly replaced the chicken with hot dogs.

The result: yum! Pure flakey crust perfection.

I'm pretty convinced that we could have swapped out the chicken broth for veggie broth and replaced the hot dogs with seitan to make a very tasty vegetarian version of this dish. But why would you do that when you have hot dogs at the ready?!
