Halloween Hotdog worms
Years ago I discovered these Halloween Hotdog Worms in a Southern Living Magazine. Southern Living Magazine always has great ideas for the holidays. When I saw this, I thought, “Oh my gosh, I have to make these!” I have been making them at my Halloween Parties ever since. The kids love them. What kid doesn’t like hotdogs? The adults like them too. Because you cook them until they curl, they often get a little crispy on the outside. This creates a different taste to your “everyday” hotdog, and you will find they are quite good. You can still serve these worms in hotdog buns with all your favorite toppings. I like to make a hotdog station with all kinds of our favorite toppings such as hot pepper, relish, tomatoes, cheese, chili, slaw, sauerkraut, onions, ketchup, mustard, celery salt, and pickles. Then my guests can go wild with their toppings and make an awesome worm sandwich.
All you do is slice the hotdogs into fours lengthwise. If you want them really curly, you can slice each dog into six pieces. (My personal favorite is a Nathan’s Hotdog… But that is just me.)
Cook them on the grill until they begin to curl to resemble a worm.
Once cooked, plate them to serve!
How easy was that? Aren’t they gross and creepy looking? They are a perfect addition to a Halloween Party. Now, if you really want to go crazy, you can serve them with the green ketchup they put out for Halloween. But for my parties, the kids wouldn’t touch the green ketchup. That was waaaaayyyy too gross for them.
