Hot Dog Octopus

Dani’s little girl is having a birthday soon and since she’s getting interested in being in the kitchen, what better gift to come from Aunt Shell than a fun cookbook and a pretty little apron?  When Sam and I were looking through the book, the first thing that interested him was the hot dog octopus.  Naturally, he wanted one for dinner.  Goofy, eh?  And I don’t mind saying, a little gross ~ boiled hot dogs are just not for me.  That’s okay though cause both my kids thought it was awesome.

I’m sure you’ve seen this around.  You lay the hot dog on a cutting board and slice one half of it into eight “legs.”  When boiled in water, the legs get all curly.  Add some mustard eyes and voila…. a hot dog octopus.

    Things you’ve got to do to please a kiddo to eat his meal. And something adults as well! ;)

    Brings back the memories. I used to make octopus hot dogs for my children when they were younger.
