1 (16 ounce) package
2 (48 ounce) containers
1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh chives
I have done this for years with the grandkids! For a variation, I dye the ramen noodles green and pile the octopi on top of the :sea weed! turn the cooked hot dogs upside down and they are flowers! ( for the girls)
Not the greatest, my picky little eater refused to finish his.
Simple and fun to do, I'd suggest the next time I do this, I use low sodium hot dogs and chicken broth. But the recipe did just what it said it would. The hot dogs curled right up and I thought that was fantastic! My local commissary didn't have a very good quality of fresh chives. I was totally disappointed. But for a small package at just under 3 dollars. I would have needed 2 to almost 3 containers of fresh chives to follow the recipe exactly, and I would have had it not been for the commissary's selection. However, I had to go with green onions and at 34 cents a bundle and using 2, and chopping only. the greens and saving the other part for another use. This recipe was made very inexpensively. What a great budget recipe. Hot dogs-- .89cents, Chicken Broth(Dollar Store)-- $2.50, Green Onions-- .68...total $4.07 WOW right? Less then 51 cents a serving. I'll make this again for sure. My kids loved how the whole hot dog trick turned into an octopus. A BIG THANKS!!!
My kids love this! I just boiled the hot dog octopi in plain water & served on plates with ketchup. The kids loved pulling apart the legs & dipping them one at a time. So fun.
I just use packaged chicken noodle soup and put the sliced hotdogs in. The kids are crazy about it.
This is great! i boil them plain and serve them in my kids' bento boxes for lunch. they love 'em.
This is really good put on top a bowl of mac and cheese with some fish crackers sprinkled on top.
These are great! A new lunch favorite! Thanks for the terrific idea.
