Introduction: Caterpillars in Pond Scum

Hot dogs never looked better. Present these to the kids and see what they say. The pond
scum is just ketchup with a drop of blue food color. The dogs should get boiled AND
microwaved (the flavor is 20x better! Try it!)

Follow the diagram, and slice the hot dogs first with the little slices down both sides. These
will end up being the "legs". Don't forget the "tail". Next, roll the hot dog onto it's side
and make one slice thru for the "mouth". Make tiny slices where "teeth" go. Boil them
until they float, then microwave each caterpillar individually for 40 seconds. Serve on a
bed of "pond scum" which is 2Tbsp ketchup and one drop of blue food color.

That looks so... wrong! Catterpillars my fanny, those look like the snakehead fish from that movie Snakehead Terror! Which also makes this dish full of awesome! lol

I have three boys who are mostly grown up (17, 19, and 21). The 17 year old would make comments about how nasty it looked but he would eat it. The 19 year old would dig in with an almost frightening gusto and maniacal laughter. The 21 year old "throw up in his mouth a little bit" then run from the room and not come out until the breakfast cereal was on the table the next morning.

Well done!

Are they tastier? Or am I imagining things? I notice it emphasizes the "skin" , and seems to impart a saltier flavor.
