Recipe Notes

This is good stuff but don't over do it. You can add any other toppings you wish to this delicious concoction. My secret ingredient for making ANY mac n' cheese better: Sriracha! It livens up the cheese sauce and adds a little heat.
This recipe was first invented way back in 1976 in my grade 8 home economics class. We had to come up with something from ingredients we had already used in our class over the year for our final test mark. Myself and two other girls invented this tasty pizza by combining our multitudes of experience making English Muffin Pizzas (muffins, hot dogs, cheese and tinned sauce) , Pigs in a Blanket (hot dogs wrapped in crescent dough) and of course mac n' cheese out of a box which was the boiling water 101 part of our cooking skills. No one else was as creative as we were.
