This is a big camping favorite with me and my mom, its not actual octupus, or a stew... I like to serve it with macaroni and cheese


  1. Take the hot dogs and cut them each in half.
  2. with those half hot dogs, cut verticaly on the flat side halfway down.
  3. put into boiling water and watch the"tentacles" curl up.
  4. Once the"tentacles" have curled, take out.
  5. If you would like, you can put ketchup and mustard smileys on them.
