Spread a small portion of potatoes on bottom of 8×13 pan. Cut wieners lengthwise in half placing them evenly spaced on top of the thin layer of potatoes in the pan. Then cover with the remainder of potatoes. Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. The last five minutes you can add the Cup of cheddar cheese (or any cheese you desire) but this is optional. Then serve warm.

This is a very frugal meal. And very yummy. My mother used to make this for us 7 children and we loved it. After I got married , my husband loved it. He still does.
