Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cut wieners widthwise in half. Cut each half lengthwise in half, starting each cut about 1 inch from 1 end of each wiener. Roll each wiener one-quarter turn and cut a second lengthwise cut, again starting about 1 inch from uncut end. (This will form the 4 legs of each octopus.) Use sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut each leg lengthwise in half, about 1 inch from uncut end, creating a total of 8 legs in each wiener. Poke 2 holes into the uncut portion of each wiener for the eyes.
  • Add wieners to saucepan of boiling water; cook as directed on package, watching each wiener turn into an octopus right before your eyes.
  • Meanwhile, place 2 bun halves on each of 4 plates. Top each bun half with ketchup, tomato slice and a wiener octopus.

Special Equipment Needed


Substitute HEINZ Yellow Mustard for the ketchup.

Keep Kids Safe

For children under 4, cut hot dogs lengthwise and crosswise into small bite-size pieces. Children should always be seated and supervised while eating.

Serving Suggestion
