Finger Hot Dog Ingredients

Step 1

To carve the hot dogs into fingers, place uncooked hot dogs on a sturdy tray. Use your knife or scalpel to lightly carve an upside down U-shaped curve at the top of the hot dog, with a horizontal line at the bottom to create a fingernail effect. Remove the excess hot dog meat and now you have a fingernail!

Step 2

Create knuckles by cutting two slits about an inch under the fingernail. Remove excess pieces of hot dog to finish the knuckle.

Then cut three more slits about 2 inches under the first knuckle slits and remove excess pieces to finish off the finger.
