1. Prepare franks as directed on package.
2. Place each bun on a dinner plate, opening the bun so the cut side up lays flat. Slice each frank in half lengthwise; place cut side up on bun.
3. Scoop 1/4 cup each of mashed potatoes, barbecued pork or chicken, and mac and cheese over split frank. Garnish the shredded meat with a cherry tomato.
Tips: Simplify this fun dish by using instant, refrigerated or leftover mashed potatoes. You can even buy ready-to-heat mac and cheese to get dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.
Add a savory sundae topping by spooning hot gravy over potatoes and mac and cheese.
