Kids gobble this up!! When I'm in a hurry at lunch time I use the box mac and cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large pot boil the macaroni, in salted water.
  2. Slice each hot dog half way up, into 8 slices (depending on the size of your hot dog sometimes I only cut it 4 times), you are making the tentacles.
  3. Poke top uncut part with the tip of the knife, to make eyes and mouth.
  4. I add the hot dogs to the macaroni while it's cooking.
  5. Boil 7 minutes until done.
  6. Remove hot dogs.
  7. Drain macaroni, add butter, cheese and milk.
  8. Stir until cheese is melted and creamy.
  9. Salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve octopus over macaroni.

We used veggie dogs since we are vegetarian. The kids went crazy for this. Such a cute idea and gets them to eat their food.
Thanks for the tasty and fun recipe
