Get the Recipe: Hot Dog Sea Monsters

Before you head out for trick-or-treating, gobble up this quick hot dog and veggie supper, all wrapped up in a buttery crescent roll. Here’s how:

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 1

Cut lengthwise through 1 end of each hot dog, about one-third of the way.

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 2

Rotate and cut perpendicularly to the first cut, to create four “tentacles.”

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 3

Simmer in boiling water until tentacles curl and separate, 2 to 3 minutes.

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 4

Cut a blanched kale leaf into two or three long pieces and wrap around each hot dog, weaving through the tentacles.

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 5

Spread crescent roll dough with mustard, top with a hot dog, and roll up snugly. Bake at 350°F for 16 to 18 minutes on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.

Hot Dog Sea Monsters Step 6

Cut our slits for mouth and eyes. Insert small pieces of kale stems for eyes. Dot tentacles with relish “sea slime.”
