Step 1: Prepare Potatoes
Follow instructions accompanying the instant potato mix.
Step 2: Assemble
Slice the hot dog lengthwise and fold open so you have two connected halves. Spoon the potatoes onto the opened hot dog and make an indentation down the center. Finally press the shredded cheese into the indentation. Make sure all the ingredients are fairly centered on the opened hot dog.
Step 3: Cook
Microwave until the cheese is fully melted and is heated through. Enjoy!
