One Wiener Dog = 2 Crabs + 2 Octopi

Pin It Now!












Wiener dog is one of the items that I pack into my son's lunch box quite often! Not only because it takes so little time to prepare, but also it can be kept in room temperature for quite a few hours.
How do you like these little guys? It only take a few extra minutes to transform a wiener dog into these cute little bite size treats!
用小熱狗做的章魚和蟹....很簡單哦!

You can use either pork or beef dog. Veggie dog won't turn out good.





Tip: Half frozen wiener is much easier to cut!



Cook for a few minutes, then they are cute enough to be served!



If you have extra time, you can add some decorations.
I used cheese and black sesame seeds to make eyes and mouths. Pancake syrup was used as glue.



This is also a quick and easy appetizer recipe for kids party!

  1. So cute and thanks for the detailed instructions!

    My girl crazy about the octopus sausages, every time we went to japanese restaurant, she sure wanted to order the octopus sushi (this kind of octopus topping on the rice).

  3. Thank you both ^^
    To Casey, I haven't seen any Japanese restaurant here serve the kind of sushi you talked about. I bet every single kid will order that when they see it on the menu!
    Dear Bo, I actually think it's easier to cut this design free hand. Besides, it's easier to wash knife then cutter ;p

  14. You could probably also used a dollop of mustard for the eyes and for the octopus mouth.

  15. That's a great idea! thank you .

  16. I had the mustard comment. Tried making these tonight and oh goodness, they were AWESOME! I made 2 hot dogs. One for tonight and one for school lunch. She ate BOTH of them! And she has never even eaten one full hot dog before. Her comment, "They taste better when they are cute."

    I don't know if our hot dogs are smaller, since they were local, free range, organic... but when I made 2 crabs, they didn't look like anything. So on the 2nd hot dog, I cut it in thirds and had a bigger middle piece. That one looked exactly like the picture. Also, using the organic, pure maple syrup, it wasn't sticky enough to make anything stick. So the mustard worked great for eyes and a dab of organic ketchup for the mouth.

    My kiddo was so proud of her sea creatures. She was showing them off to my husband (who thought they were so funny!). And then she wanted to know when she takes them for lunch if she can show her friends.

    I wound up making 2 more hot dogs after my kiddo went to bed. One for her lunch, and didn't want to leave my husband out of the fun, so made him one too.
