  4. Once the vegetables are cooked, whisk the flour and heavy cream together, then add to the soup along with the salt and hot dogs. Continue to simmer the soup for another 10 minutes until it has thickened slightly and the hot dogs are warmed through.
  5. Serve warm with the grated cheddar and parsley as garnish.
