We loved this recipe and made it for a ocean themed birthday party. All the kids loved it and we continue to make it at home. You can use a plastic knife and let the kids cut up the hot dogs too. We make silly faces now and laugh as we clean the plate.

Great for kids! They loved watching the "legs" curl up. I mixed Gerber stage 3 carrots to the cheese mix and frozen green peas and called them "octopus eggs" to sneak in veggies! They Loved it!

Way to put a twist on regular mac & cheese. This was fun for the kids, and kept them full for the whole night; compared to macaroni alone.

So much mileage out of a simple hot dog and macaroni! My grandkids love this and it is something only Gramma makes. They especially like it when the octopus yells, 'Help me!' when they eat the legs.....(a little Gramma ventriloquism). They call it 'octopus stew' though because of a quote from a Jamie Lee Curtis children's book.....'I like me when I try something new. Even when Grandma makes Octopus Stew'.

This is quick, simple, and to make it even better your kids can help! My daugther and I had so much fun making this dish.

I made this recipe with my kindergarten class as part of our unit on ocean life. We took a trip down to the cafeteria so everyone could drop their own hotdog into the water and watch the legs curl up. I'll probably do it every year from now on!
