Sarah’s Hot Diggity-Dawgs

Who knew that hot dogs, potatoes, and cheese could constitute health-food?! Sarah came up with a good one here. I also love how her Tennessee accent comes through in this recipe. I choose to believe that her voice sounds just like this! Thanks for your contribution, Sarah. Take it away!

“I have a new recipe. Don’t know what ya call it but it’s good, and I think it follows in all P90x guidelines!


  • 2 turkey dogs
  • 1 red 2″ x 4-3/4″ potato
  • 1 slice (or 3/4 oz. shredded) reduced-fat cheese
  • just enough milk to cream potato

Boil turkey dogs. Slice and cube tater, boil like you were gonna make mashed potatoes. When potatoes are finished, drain and mash addin just enough milk to cream them. Slice turkey dogs down the middle. Add a small line of ketchup. Add a spoonful of creamed potatoes. Add cheese. Put in oven to melt cheese, and enjoy.

P90x Nutrition Plan Servings:

2 protein, 1 carb, 1 dairy, 1/2 condiment”

OK, CJ’s back!

P.S. I had my concerns about the use of hot dogs in Sarah’s recipe, until I did a little research and discovered that turkey dogs receive the Beachbody stamp of approval if you make sure to choose turkey dogs with “low levels of fat, low sodium, and a list of ingredients you recognize.” Also, make sure the dogs you choose come in at under 100 calories each so that they constitute a single protein serving. Also, in the name of reducing your intake of highly processed foods like hot dogs, I would make this more of a treat than an everyday thing. Part of me thinks that whatever the article says, Tony would cry if he heard you were eating hot dogs every day. lol!

P.P.S. Thanks again for sharing, Sarah, and especially for providing a photo!! =)

    O.M.G!!!! This was a staple meal for my family growing up. Not so muc because it was healthy but because my parents had four kids to feed and it was fast, easy, and cheap.
