Spider Dogs, Octo-Dogs:The Hottest Dogs for Kids!

31 May

We’ll be camping and grilling again this summer, so here is a reminder for you (and me) on the coolest way to grill hot dogs for kids!

Grilled Spider-Dogs

Packaged hot dogs

1 skewer for each hotdog

You’ll want a hot grill going for this.

Stick a skewer halfway through each hot dog lengthwise.

Carefully cut the free half into quarters, lengthwise.

Lay the sliced ends of the hot dogs on the grill. The slices will curl back away from each other as they cook. When the sliced end is cooked and curled, carefully remove the dogs from their skewers, skewer through the cooked end and slice uncooked half into quarters lengthwise. Lay the uncooked ends of the dogs on the grill and cook until they are also curled back and you have a spider (or octo-) dog!

    They look really weird, but I bet kids love them 😉

      Yeah, it’s a sure fire success at barbecues…they do look a bit like grilled baby octopus in the wrong color….

    Wow! Fun with food for the kiddos! My five year old would love this!

    Oh, lordy, your spider/octo dogs look so much better than mine.
    That’s what I get for boiling and using a turkey dog.

    I have never in my entire life seen a hotdog like that. It looks awesome. I am going to have to request my hotdogs to be cooked this way from now on. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Talk foodie to me, baby...
