Recipe Notes

My husband found this recipe and made it after supper as a snack. He didn't create it. He doesn't like mustard, but liked it with these. I even dipped part of mine in catsup and another part in mustard My son usually tears the cornbread coating off regular corn dogs, but ate these. I don't like Vienna sausages, but couldn't tell that's what I was eating. It was a hit and would consider fixing it as a meal when it gets busy on the farm from Spring to Fall. My husband said it wasn't hard and didn't take him very long!

With what's going on in 2020, cornbread muffin mix and Vienna sausages are in a can so you don't have to worry about either going bad until you mix them together. A fun new food to change the boredom. A kid-size snack/meal that's just their size!

  1. Lay sliced bread on sprayed cooking sheet. Brush melted butter on each slice of bread. Can do more than once, just make sure well-coated. Sprinkle each slice with garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
  2. Add pizza ingredients. Hamburger, pepperoni, mushrooms for me. Top with mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with Italian seasoning again
  3. Put in 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted
  4. Mix tomato sauce and pizza seasoning in microwave -safe bowl. Can warm for a few seconds in microwave. Can dip bread into sauce being careful not to lose toppings. Or spoon some sauce on bread slices and eat with fingers or fork.
Recipe Notes

I made this recipe up last night by combining pizza burgers and another recipe. We are in fall harvest and it's nice to have supper ready when my guys are ready to eat. I'm never sure when that is, but I was getting tired of eating cold sandwiches! I asked my son if this would be ok for supper. He wasn't excited because he had pizza burgers for lunch at school, but I made them anyway. We had French bread that needed to be used and hamburger buns always get used at this time of year. My son took 1 and said "It's really good, Mom." and ate another! From my picture, you can tell I am messy when making the meal. I wasn't thinking about taking a picture, but I am remembering to. This recipe does make 8, but my son had grabbed one already to eat. Increase amounts if making for more people.

Instructions
  1. Mix ingredients from Parmesan cheese down in a bowl or large measuring cup. Peel and cut potatoes into bite-size cubes. I like to think of it as halve the potato the long way, Quarter the potato (cutting the other 2 pieces that haven't been cut the same way then chop, chop,c hop the long way getting smaller pieces. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Put a few potatoes in cheese mixture and stir to coat. It works better to put the potatoes in mix a few at a time instead of all at once, so they get well coated. I use a stainless steel scoop to mix it in the Parmesan mixture. Then the extra mixture falls through back in the bowl. Put in a sprayed 7" x 11" dish snuggly. Continue until all potatoes are coated and in the pan.
  3. Put generous amounts of margarine on top of potatoes. That's what makes them crispy. Cook for 50-60 minutes. You can turn potatoes over halfway through cooking, but don't have to.
Recipe Notes

I buy the scoop in the pet section of the store. Yes, you read that right. It is a kitty litter scoop. Afyer I've paid for it I take it home, put in my dishwasher, and then in my kitchen utensil drawer. No harm, no fowl. It never touches kitty litter and you wouldn't know the difference if I hadn't told you my secret!

I brought this recipe from home. My mom used to cut the potatoes in spears, bread with just Parmesan cheese and we really liked them that way growing up. I just took the idea and added my own to it.
