TURN YOUR HOT DOG INTO A "SPIDER DOG"
Hot dogs are one of those rare foods that even the pickiest of eater kiddos will gobble up! With just a couple of key cuts, you can transform a tasty hotdog into a crispy "Spider Dog"!
Simply place two fingers on the center of a hot dog, you want to leave this middle part solid as it will act as the "spider body". If you are roasting them over a fire, this middle part will be where the skewer goes through.
With your fingers still on the hotdog, cut each end twice so it now has four parts or "legs"
The hotdogs will shrink a bit but still work great with hot dog buns. As the hotdogs cook the end's curl up and get crispy! VOILA "Spider Dog"!
