Let's Make It
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.
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.
Serve this dish with your child's favorite vegetable, such as baby or sliced carrots and/or celery sticks and a small fruit salad.
