Ok, this might be the most terrifying Halloween recipe ever … and I LOVE it! These Bloody, Severed Finger Hot Dogs are so gross and yet so amazing, all at the same time! If you’re having a Halloween party, you have to make these, they are so simple to make and they will be a party hit for sure! I wish I could take credit for the genius of these hot dogs, but someone else came up with this idea, I saw it on Pinterest and I had to recreate it on the blog to make sure more people see this genius hot dog hack! I simply can’t emphasize enough how easy these are to make! I just wish I knew who the genius was who originally made these so I could give credit. And you only need a few ingredients to make these Bloody, Severed Finger Hot Dogs: Ball Park® Franks, hot dog buns, ketchup, and water. I don’t think you really need a recipe, but I’m going to put my tips/tricks in this recipe box so you can print it out.
- Ball Park® Franks
- hot dog buns
- Start a large pot of water boiling on the stove.
- To make the fingernails and knuckles, slice the two sides of the fingernail, then straight across the top. Then make a slight curved slice for the bottom nail bed. Next, take your knife and carefully slice the tiny piece off. See the below photo for sizing to see how big you want to make your nail.
- Next, to make the knuckles, make one slit along the middle with two crescent slits directly above and below. Then halfway between the knuckle and the nail, make two crescent slits. Repeat at the very bottom.
- Boil the hot dogs for 4-5 minutes.
- Then place each "finger" into a hot dog bun loaded with ketchup - be sure to smear some ketchup on the bottom of each "severed finger" and more at the top of the bun.
I picked up the Ball Park® Franks at Sam’s Club along with some Tyson® Chicken Strips which I heated according to the instructions on the bag and then added little eyeballs to them to make them more Halloweeny, just in case someone is too grossed out by my realistic Bloody, Severed Finger Hot Dogs. What I love about Ball Park® Franks is that they are delicious beef hot dogs with no by-product! I usually slice them in half and heat them on the stove, but boiling them for these Halloween Finger Hot Dogs was just as yummy! And the resealable bag on both the Ball Park® Franks and the Tyson® Chicken Strips is a major plus, especially when buying in bulk at Sam’s Club.
