These are tasty, and so cute! I like to take them to school for lunch with some rice balls and veggie sticks. Make sure you get all-natural sausages with no nitrates, nitrites, or MSG.

Ingredients
  1. Little sausages, fully cooked (make sure they contain no nitrites, nitrates, or MSG)
  2. Toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Using a paring knife, slice half of a sausage lengthwise. Turn and slice again. Now you should have 4 legs of the octopus.
  2. Slice each leg into two. Now you have 8 legs. Repeat for all sausages.
  3. Brown sausages in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. With some types of sausage, this will be enough to make the legs of the octopus curl out.
  4. If your octopus legs need more curling, pick up the sausage with tongs and push a toothpick onto the top (the head of the octopus). This will allow you to use the toothpick to set the octopus right-side up, without burning yourself.
  5. Hold the toothpick and set the octopus right-side up in the pan, with its legs spread apart. You may have to hold it there for a few seconds for it to stay. Brown the underside of the octopus legs, and it will help it to keep the octopus shape.
