FUN WITH HOTDOGS!
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.
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.
