This is the easy way that has evolved at our house. I use a layer of very thinly sliced potatoes,
followed by a layer of thinly sliced hot dogs – as you can see the vegan type usually end up a bit crumbly, which makes them easier to spread around.
Then layer with cheese. This is a vegan cheese and I use either mozzarella or cheddar flavor, depending on what I have on hand. Salt to taste with each layer. Repeat for a second layer, ending with cheese on top. This photo is a big skimpy on the cheese because I ran out. I then pour milk (soy or any type) to cover the potatoes and most of the cheese. Bake at 350 for about 75 minutes. Ovens vary, so yours may be a bit faster or slower.
This is the end product, ready to serve. I do hope you enjoy the ease as well as the taste.
