Hot Dogs, Peas and Rice

Now this gem my parents found thirty some odd years ago in a starving student recipe book.

Total cooking time 20 min total prep time 5 min

Hot Dogs, Peas and Rice

1 pkg Hot Dogs
1 1/2 C. uncooked Rice
1/2 - 3/4 C. Peas
1/4 C. Butter (separated)
salt to taste
pepper to taste

Cut up hot dogs into bite size pieces cook with peas. (This is a personal preference they can be cooked separately.)
After the water is warm remove one cup and add to rice along with 1 Tbls. butter. cook rice according to directions. Add more water to hot dogs and peas if needed. Bring to a boil then lower the heat so they will be done cooking at the same time as the rice.
Drain Hot dogs and Peas add to a large bowl with the remaining butter. Add in the rice, mix and serve. Adding salt and pepper to individual taste.

Also as we needed to cook this often when we were really on a shoestring budget, we added in other spices to change the flavor. Our favorites were Adobo, Seasonal, and Lemon Pepper.
