These are hands down (no pun intended) one of my favourite ever Halloween snacks. I like to bring them out halfway through the night to soak up any alcohol and to balance the sugar rush. They can be "decorated" ahead of time and then heated in the oven before they get sauced up!
Severed Finger Dogs
An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Makes 12 hot dog fingers
- Packet of 12 hot dog frankfurts or cheese kranskys (go for the flesh coloured hot dogs rather than the red ones)
- Packet of 12 hot dog buns
- Tomato sauce or ketchup
- 12 flaked almonds
Step 1 - Cook the hot dog frankfurts according to directions (in a microwave or if you boil, bring to a boil from cold water and then remove from the water to prevent them bursting). Make a couple of light slashes with a knife to approximate knuckles. Squeeze some tomato sauce in a hot dog bun and wedge the frankfurt inside. Place a flaked almond as the fingernail on top.
