  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • Servings: 6 to 8
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. beef hot dogs
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked macaroni

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cups milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • Boil 7 minutes until done.
  • Drain macaroni, add butter, cheese and milk.
  • Stir until cheese is melted and creamy.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add water to large pot about half way to the top, and boil.
  • Slice each hot dog half way up, into 8 slices (depending on the size of your hot dog sometimes I only cut it 4 times), you are making the tentacles.
  • Poke top uncut part with the tip of the knife, to make eyes and mouth.
  • Boil in water until tentacles are curling.
  • Serve octopus over macaroni.

Notes

Kids will gobble these up! It's a great way to get them interested in cooking, they love watch their "tentacles" curl up. If you are in a hurry use box mac and cheese!
