Let's Make It
1
Cut wieners lengthwise in half, starting each cut about 1 inch from one 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 4 legs for 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 for each octopus. Poke 2 holes into the uncut portion of each wiener for the eyes.
2
Prepare Dinner as directed on package, using the Light Prep directions. Meanwhile, add wieners to separate saucepan of boiling water; cook as directed on package, watching each wiener turn into an octopus right before your eyes.
3
Spoon Dinner into 4 serving bowls; top each with a wiener octopus.
