Add a helping of macaroni and cheese onto each, spreading it across.
Place one cooked frank onto each bun. Sprinkle it with cheese.
Place prepared hot dogs into an oven-safe casserole or rectangular baking pan. Transfer to a preheated 250°F oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bun is toasted.
