Octopus Sausage

These cute sausage octopuses will be a hit for kid’s parties. Just you can attach a cute small flag written the kids name attach to a toothpick and insert on top of each octopus or even without a flag will look very cute. To make these octopuses you will need: 

Any amount of sausages you want  
Few black sesame seeds 
Some water
How to make your octopus:  
Using a sharp knife cut each sausage in to half, take one half and from the non rounded side (where u have cut)leaving about a third of the sausage to create the head. Make slits like the way I have shown in the below image. 

So now each octopus will have eight tentacles. Bring water to a boil, put 2 to 3 non bloomed octopuses in to the boiling water boil for 2 to 3 minutes until the legs bloom or curls outwards a little.  In the video below you can see how it blooms.
 (The sound in this video has nothing to do with this video just my TV was on)
Drain on kitchen towels, when you take these cute octopuses out from water it will be very soft so handle these cuties with care, when it cools it will get firmer. Attach two black sesame seeds for both eyes while it is wet and some cheese for the mouth…sorry I did not put mouths on my cuties…enjoy!
