Some of you may recall that I was looking for an Octodog machine a while ago, and decided not to bother because they were way too expensive.

Well, I do eat hot dogs occasionally since they're low fat and pretty cheap, and it suddenly occurred to me that it's entirely possible to make something a lot like an octodog with an 8-segment wire cutter gizmo from a mandolin. So this was my lunch a few days ago; The eyes were peppercorns, the blasphemous yellow ichor was mustard...

If I do this again I'll probably use something else for the eyes, not quite sure what yet. Possibly capers or cloves? Suggestions gratefully received anyway.

Hot dogs are "low fat"? Not unless they're radically different from actual US hot dogs, they're not.

These are mostly chicken, about 3g fat per hot dog.
