This is NOT my original recipe, and these are NOT my photos. I have no claim on this, other than to say that I received it in an email from my father-in-law, and thought it was cute as all get-out, and wanted to share. I don't even know to whom the credit for the recipe should be given ... whoever you are, it's adorable! And thank you, Father-In-Law Vince, for the email! :o)
Thought it'd be a cute idea for you to try, if you're grilling for 4th of July this weekend. ha! Good luck!

    4Next, take the hot dog halves and make turtles' legs, head and tail. Cut the one for the tail at a diagonal on the end, so the tail looks "pointed". In the legs, put a few tiny 'slits' in the ends, so they will look like feet w/ claws after they bake.
