    dolliegyrl's Note:

    I make this for my picky boys! It costs roughly $1 to make if that so is very cheap to keep on hand! This is SO easy your kids can help make their own lunch/snack!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 hot dog, cooked
    • 1 (3 ounce) package Top Ramen noodles (cooked and drained no sauce added)
    • food coloring (your choice)
    • mustard or ketchup

    Directions:

    1. 1
      After draining Top Ramen noodles let kid/s pick out food color/colors.
    2. 2
      If you want the octopus to look like its really on the sea use blue only.
    3. 3
      Put a few drops on the noodles.
    4. 4
      Toss with forks until coated evenly.
    5. 5
      This does not color them completely-- more like a sprinkling/marbling effect.
    6. 6
      Make an X cut (crisscross) from top of wiener to the middle.
    7. 7
      Arrange on top of noodles to make an octopus with 4 legs.
    8. 8
      Make a smile and 2 eyes with ketchup or mustard and you're set!

      My kids love Octopus weiners! I usually cut the bottom half of the weiner into eight "legs" before I boil them and the "legs" curl up while cooking! The blue noodles were a great idea as I usually serve my octopus weiners with the Catelli brand of sea shaped pasta, which can get quite expensive. Thanks for this fun meal idea!
