 (How to Make Fake Fried Worms)

fried worms recipeIt is so simple, you’ll find yourself making this fried worms recipe all the time!

Any kind of Hot Dog will do… so you can make them with the delicious all beef boutique butcher hot dogs… or with the inexpensive franks that you find on sale. I don’t know how it would work with veggie dogs… if you try, please let me know.
I do know that the thinner you cut the hot dogs, the more they will curl….

For serving, I usually put the worms in a hot dog bun cut in half…. mostly because little kids can’t seem to finish a whole hot dog during a party (I HATE wasted food). You can also serve them on a hamburger bun… or maybe even a taco shell?

And as for amounts? Kind of use your judgement… for little kids I go with a 1/2 bun… older kids might want 2….

Serves: as many as you want … just cut more hot dogs up

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10- 15 minutes


Hot Dogs Wieners

Hot Dog Buns (or hamburger buns)

Bar B Que Sauce..


Get out a frying pan… let it heat up over medium heat.

Cut each hot dog in half… then cut the halves into strips.. The thinner the strips, the more they will curl up.

Put the strips of hot dog in the hot pan…. fry them until they start to curl.

Spoon on some bar b que sauce… enough to make the strips wet (if you like lots of sauce, add more)… cook another minute.


Serve in a bun.
