Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Cut wieners 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.
  • Prepare Dinner as directed on package. Meanwhile, add wieners to separate saucepan of boiling water; cook as directed on package, watching each wiener turn into an octopus right before your eyes.
  • Spoon Dinner into 4 serving bowls; top each with a wiener octopus.
