Hot Dogs!

My friend shared this fun idea for hotdogs.
Use them as meatballs.
Take 1 hotdog and cut into 5 pieces.  Then push uncooked spaghetti noodles through the hotdog.  I used 3 pieces of hotdog with 5 spaghetti noodles.  Place them in a pot of boiling water and cook til spaghetti is done.  Can serve with spaghetti sauce if you would like.  Or a little melted butter on the noodles...or ofcourse if your kids are like mine, maybe some ketchup!

 This next idea I heard from my aunt quite a while ago, then was reminded about it from a friend.
Octopus Hotdogs!

Cut 3/4 of the length of the hotdog into 8ths.  I cut 3/4 of the way up the hotdog (cutting it in half lenthwise).  Then rotate a quarter of a turn and cut again length wise (creating 4 legs).  I then take each leg and cut them in half seperatley (creating 8 legs).  Use a toothpick to poke holes in the head of the Octopus (the uncut part).  Place in boiling water and cook for 3-5 minutes.  You can put little drops of mustartd on the eyes when they are done cooking if you want.
Both of these were a hit with the kids.

I saw this on my friends site, She called them pasta dogs. I still haven't tried it but I'm sure my kids would get a kick out of it.
