New England Boiled Dinner, My Way

New England Boiled Dinner  “A traditional New England Boiled Dinner is the famous corned  beef and cabbage dish prepared in America on St. Patrick’s Day.  For other times during the year, “my way”  means I replace hot dogs for the corned beef.  I have made it this way for years and I love it.  You can put the hot dogs in frozen or you can use any other type sausage like Italian, chorizo, or kielbasa, but my favorite is to use hot dogs.  I love the flavor they absorb from the recipe.  Cutting the potatoes and onions in half thickens the broth a little, which I love. It only takes a few minutes to prep the vegetables, so I call this a fast recipe.    Enjoy!”
