Okay, this may be my scariest Halloween recipe… and I love it! These damn Halloween hot dogs are so disgusting and yet so amazing, all at the same time! If you are going to have a Halloween party, you have to make them, they are so simple to make and they will surely be a big hit at the party!
hot dog buns
optional: thinly sliced onion as a fingernail
Put a large pot of boiling water on the stove.
To make the nails and knuckles, slice the two sides of the nail, then straight across the top. Then make a slight curved slice for the bottom of the nail bed. Then take your knife and carefully cut the small piece. See the photo below in the blog post for the size of the nail.
Then, to make the knuckles, make a cut along the middle with two crescent-shaped cuts directly above and below. Then, halfway between the knuckle and the nail, make two crescent-shaped cuts. Repeat at the bottom.
Boil the hot dogs for 4-5 minutes.
Then place each “finger” on a hot dog bun loaded with ketchup. Be sure to smear some ketchup on the bottom of each “cut finger” and more on the top of the roll.
If you want, you can add a square piece of thinly sliced white onion for the “fingernail”, but it’s a little extra work that I didn’t think was necessary.
