Octopus Hot Dogs

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by winkki

A fun way to liven up that ever-present kids' food. Great for bad weather days, cranky kids (or moms!), birthday parties, or just because. My daughters think I'm really cool when I make these for them. :o)

These are so much fun! I atually make them over the bon fire. Same sort of idea without the boiling part. I cut them the same, then poke a long stick through the "head" part. The legs still curl up. My kids love them!


  1. Cut hot dog in half length-wise, leaving about 1" intact at the end.
  2. Cut each of the long sections in half (lengthwise), then in half again - these are the legs.
  3. Boil until legs' curl up and hot dog is cooked through.
