Mac 'n Cheese Cocktail Sliders

You can be flexible with the ingredients for this recipe and may need to exercise some creativity in combining what you have available.

Cocktail sausages, Little Smokies, hot dogs, or frankfurters?

Cocktail sausages are like mini-hot dogs, pre-shaped and ready to go. But if you don't have them, you can use regular hot dogs or frankfurters and just cut them to size to fit into your bun.

Where do I find mini hot dog slider buns?

You can cut regular hot dog buns into thirds or halves to match the size of our frankfurters, hot dogs, or cocktail sausages.

Or you can use a package of frozen dinner roll dough found in the freezer section of your supermarket to shape and back the matching bun size.

Or you can make your own mini-hot dog slider buns from scratch.

Above all, just have fun.

What about the man 'n cheese?

You can make your own mac n' cheese from recipes or use a box of KD or other macaroni and cheese to save time.

How do I toast panko bread crumbs?

Arrange the Panko bread crumbs on a baking sheet and roast in a 325F oven for about 10 minutes.

You can also use other toppings, such as regular bread crumbs, sesame seeds, crushed cheese crackers, or none at all. The added texture is nice but not mandatory.
