(Tested by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

Children, especially boys, will love these sandwiches. The hot dogs curl into wiggly worms while cooking.

1 package hot dogs
1 package hamburger buns
1 tablespoon butter
Ketchup (I added a teaspoon of yellow mustard and 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce)

Slice each hot dog in half lengthwise. Cut each half into thirds. Melt about 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet. Add the hot-dog slices and cook over medium heat until the hot dogs are hot and curled. Add 3/4 to 1 cup ketchup. Stir to combine.

Place the worms on a bun and serve.

Makes 8 worm sandwiches.
