 Halloween Creepy & Crawling Hot Dog Worms!

Hot Dog Worms Halloween Favorites

One thing I love about my specialty this Halloween is that it is EASY!  If I can do it in 10 minutes or less, I’m in love. These fit right into that time frame from package to plate! Start by slicing up each of the hot dogs into 9 pieces.  I found it easiest to slice each hot dog into 3 slices, then slice those into three slices.


Fry up the hot dog slices, until they get fully puffed up and cooked.  They’ll even start to curl a bit into a more wriggly worm shape! This would be a fun thing for the kids to help with, and get them excited about the creepy-crawly dinner they’ll be having! Serve with hot dog buns or right on a plate.

Or, if you want to add Chili (Worms in Dirt/Mud) just add it in, and heat, stirring carefully not to break the hot dogs. Our favorite Chili recipes can be found below!

Hot Dog Worms is a totally perfect Halloween dinner idea!!  You know the boys will love it, and even my daughter was pretty into it to.  Plus, if you throw it on a hot dog bun, even the adults will enjoy it as a chili dog!
