Why I Love This Recipe

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!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pkg. beef hot dogs
1 1/2 cups uncooked macaroni
1 tablespoon butter
4 oz. Velveeta cubed
1/4 to 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste


In large pot boil the macaroni, in salted water.

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.
