Udon with hot dog octopus by yamibaku Udon with hot dog octopus by yamibaku
Yeah; not a creative title. I was originally going to do something like..."From the sea" or something but that doesn't really portray exactly what the dish is, does it? I think more people would give the "0___o" face if I said "hot dog octopus" so...here you go: HOT DOG OCTOPUS!!! Yay! :giggle:

That's all this dish is. It's a hot dog octopus on a dish of udon noodles surrounded by cheese-stuffed fishcake. It's really basic; I ate this for breakfast...and now I feel sick. See? I never learned from eating that chicken cordon bleu. >___< I just...really...wanted...to make an octopus!

If you want to make a hot dog octopus...just cut a normal hot dog in two. Then partially slice the hotdog at the bottom into however many "legs" you want (I did 6) and stir-fry your octopus. The parts that you sliced will curl up (as seen in the photo). Do the same thing with the other half of the hotdog.

If you didn't understand that explanation because you're visual like me - sorry :(...I just had to look at the final product to figure out how to make it (you see these sometimes in Japanese plate lunches).

Lol xD My mom used to always make "face sandwiches" for me when I was a kid.

I always love food animals. They're so cute! :D

You can also do a crab like sausage...I havenīt tried yet but I saw it on an obento recipe book...looks really cute!
Usually I eat udon noodles with vegetable tempura and shiso leaves.

Oh yes, I've seen it done before. :) I just wanted to do one at a time. Maybe sometime later I'll try a "hot dog crab". :D

I love tempura. :)

Oh, don't worry - I'm not one to notice these things. I figure we're all so busy with our lives we don't always have time to comment. I actually skip out commenting on most things unless they're super odd or interesting. :)

Lol. Thanks. :D This is probably the only way I eat my hotdogs now. XD

Oh well is right in many cases...you have to be somewhat selective about your conversations out here because it's way to easy to rack up 'friend' avators (:lol:) and it can be tough enough just keeping up with the ones you actually have something in common with!

Lol! Yeah, it is...I figure the friends that stuck with me are the true ones. :) Well, that, and the ones with a lot of time on their hands. :giggle:

LOL! :giggle: That's why I decided on that title lol. To make people go "wait how do you turn a hotdog into an octopus? is that even possible????".

Thanks! I thought it was cute too; that's why I just had to make one! :D Make sure to take a picture and put it on here when you do!

Awwww... I don't have a camera, and it don't think it would work if i tried to scan it =P but, i want to make it anyway ^^

LOL! Yeah, it'd definitely be pretty odd if you tried to scan it.

You dont' have a camera? Really? You should get one; a cheap one. The one I'm using is outdated by maybe 4 or so years, but it still produces half-decent photos. It's probably worth like...$30 now. XD

Yeah, I think i'll buy a camera soon... I just want a simple one, the newest ones are too confusing for me XD

Agreed. I especially found the Canon ones confused the heck out of me...I say: if I have to read the instructions manual to figure it out, it's too difficult! Lol. :giggle:

Did you find me via TIS or randomly? Either way it's interesting. XD

Thanks! :hug: I thought it was cute too; that's half the reason why I made it.

I get sick when I eat stuff with too much fat...most people dont get that problem because that's the American diet. :giggle:
