Hotdog Octopus

How seriously cute is this?!P1020299

I’m no food connoisseur, but after picking my son up from school I was looking for a quick snack and my son said NO to hotdogs…until I made one of these for his brother. Then he had to have his own hotdog octopus and they both devoured their octopuses. :)

After you heat up the hot dog, cut the hot dog in half lengthwise, stopping just before the end to make a head. Rotate the hot dog and cut in half again (so now you have 4 legs). Then carefully cut each quarter in half again to make 8 legs.

I honestly don’t know where I found this but am so glad my boys enjoyed it so much!


  1. This is this like calling broccoli trees. You have to love these little Mommy tricks.

  2. LOVE IT Judy! My son just started eating hot dogs. I am sure he would love this! Thanks for posting! Great idea as usual! All the best! :) Heather
