These cute little guys will be a hit at any kids party, fun get-together, or in a child’s lunchbox!
Bring a pot of water to a boil.
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’.
Place the octodogs in the boiling water until cooked through and the ‘legs’ curl up, about 1 minute.
