Squid Dogs



Lunchtime is always fun.  The age-old question of "what are we eating for lunch?" happens every day.

Some days (like the day after food shopping, I'm FULL of ideas) I just open the fridge and stare.

And stare.

Today, I saw a package of uncured, all beef hotdogs, and thought..."Aha! Squid dogs!"


This was a fun treat when the boys were little.

But, hey! You're never too old for squid dogs.

(This guy looks like he has his mouth open)



These are super simple to prepare.

Heat up a pot of water to boiling on the stove.

Take each hot dog and slice down the length leaving a "one inch" for the "head" of the squid.

Make 2 slices down so you have "four legs."


Don't worry if the "legs" just resume hot dog position.

Once you place them in the hot water, they will open up.



Boil or heat for a few minutes till they look like the pictures.

Serve with your favorite condiments.

Your kids will think you are "The Coolest"

You're welcome,

The Lunch Lady
