Directions

  1. Make a slit down the middle of one end of each hot dog; this will be the legs. At the other end, make a small slit each side; these will be the arms. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil, and add the hot dogs. Boil for about 5 minutes until the slits open up.
  2. Place slices of cheese onto slices of bread. Set the hot dog men on top. Use ketchup and mustard to make a face, hair and clothes or buttons.

Adorable! I also made "octapus" hotdogs by making several slits starting about a quarter of the way down the dog. Once in the boiling water the "legs" will curl up slightly. Nestle on top of a bowl of mac and cheese for a cute presentation. Thanks!

Very cute recipe! I also make an octopus out of hot dogs and sit it on "blue"(just a drop of food coloring) mac and cheese. The kids LOVE this stuff!
