Worms on a Bun

Worms on a Bun

Looks gross but tastes so very good! This is a hot dog cut into thin strips then boiled in a pot of water. Then I top the hot dog strips with my hot dog onions and serve on a burger bun. Perfect Halloween food! You can read the reviews of my 'Hot Dog Onions' recipe here.
