Finally. An octopus I like...

I'll take mine with brown mustard, please.

I think that scares me more than real ones

I totally would not be able to eat that. Hot dogs are borderline for me, anyway.

Liberty said...

That is ... really creepy.

Enjoy new Cthulu dogs! Malevolent evil on a bun for the whole family!

I actually like octopus; it has to be cooked properly though, or it can be tough.

I really only dig dogs char-grilled (We're having them tonight incedently)

I don't think this would mesh with my cooking desires.

That and you can't eat them in a bun with gut-grenade ordience like cheese, onions, chili, 'kraut, relish.

Oh the list goes on!

The best idea I ever heard for hot dogs was cooking them the "standard" way... then dropping them in hot frying oil 'till the skin splits.

Oh my. I've wanted to try that ever since. With mustard and sauerkraut.

Also, I'm with Bob. Octopus can be mighty tasty, treated right.

I've had octopus in Japan, (it's called tako, and can be really tasty) and in Spain, in paella. Like it both ways.

Really not sure about the octo-dogs, though. Hmmm. Franks grilled on a bun, absolutely. Ones staring at you, inviting you to bite off a tentacle? Errr...

Icky. Octopus is octopus and franks is franks. Keep 'em separated.

Grilled octopus (whether Greek or Japanese style) can be seriously tasty. Moister and richer than squid. Plus it's a small triumph over our would-be cephalopod overlords.

Hot dogs are fairly tasty too. However, I don't know why anyone (not subject to dietary restrictions) would choose the bland, pink U.S. "dog" when, at any civilized ballpark, there is REAL sausage to be had, in the form of the magnificent Sheboygan bratwurst with mustard and sauerkraut.

Play ball!

I love 'em! Hebrew National and the Octodog Convetrer, here I come! (And they'd fit on a burger bun or a nice Kaiser roll just fine).

Amanda and I make hotdog people, same concept, less legs. I think I'll have to order one!

Octopus with Olive Sauce. Try it once, you'll try it often after that.
