Ingredients

  • 6 hot dogs

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.

  2. Cut hot dogs in half. To make the 'legs' of the octodog, make 3 cuts on 1 side of each hot dog, leaving about 1/3 the rounded top of the hot dog for the 'head'. Turn hot dog over and make 3 more cuts, so you have 8 'legs'.

  3. Place the octodogs in the boiling water until cooked through and the 'legs' curl up, about 1 minute.

Cook's Notes:

You can use sesame seeds or bits of nori (dried seaweed) to create little faces on the octodogs if you wish. These guys have a lot of character on their own though! Use different sizes of hot dogs to create different sized octodogs!
