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.

I've been making these for 12 years since I first saw the recipe in the TOH May/June 2001 issue (a LONG time ago lol). The only difference is I don't cut them in half and I serve them on top of ramen noodles that have been colored with a drop of green food coloring. The recipe in the magazine was called, 'Octopus and Seaweed'. My kids love this!

What a fun way to do hotdogs. The kids loved them. If you cut them the wrong way, as we did with one, it looks like a palm tree. Hubby said he would prefer his served on a sea of chili next time.

I grew up on these things... i've been having them for approx. 30 years now! Heck, I even make them when i'm having hotdogs alone sometimes at home... this is a recipe that will never leave my repertoire and will be passed on to the generations ;)
