It’s summertime, and I love camp fires!
Roasting hot dogs is fun, but make sure to buy nitrate-free, organic hot dogs. Here is a really fun way to roast a hot dog, and you don’t need the bun!
Thank you to my friend Annie for helping me with the video! 😀
Hot Dog Octopus
- 1 nitrate-free hot dog
Using a knife, slice the bottom half of the hot dog lengthwise. Keep cutting until you have 8 “legs.”
Poke a store-bought hot dog roasting stick horizontally through the “head” of the octopus so the octopus is standing upright when placed over the campfire.
Keep the octopus upright. The legs will start to curl upward away from the flames as they cook. Once the legs are cooked enough that they are fairly firm and not flimsy, you can turn the octopus upside down to cook its head.
Carefully remove your octopus from the hot dog stick, and serve with your favorite condiments.
