Have Fun with your Food: Octopus Sausages Recipe

Quick and easy transformation for sausage or hot dogs – makes eating fun for even the pickiest of eaters!
Ingredients
  • 6 Hot Dogs (or 12 cocktail sausages)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
Instructions
  1. Slice 1½ inch off of each end of your hot dogs
  2. Using a knife, make slits on the cut end of each sausage “stub” to form 6 legs. See visual via the link in the post.
  3. Heat oil in pan until hot
  4. Place sausages sideways in hot oil to fry, turning with tongs every 10 seconds or so – you will see the “legs” start to curl out when it is time to turn.
  5. Remove sausages from pan and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil
  6. Poke holes for eyes and cut a slit for mouth.
  7. Serve with a sea of ketchup and/or mustard
