 Zombie Dogs Rising from the Earth

Serving Size: 1


  • 1 Feltman’s Hot Dog
  • 1 hog dog bun (toasting optional)
  • ¼ of a 16oz can baked beans
  • ⅛ of a 16oz can black beans
  • 1 tablespoon Feltman’s Mustard
  • A few strands of uncooked spaghetti
  • Green food coloring


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil (Make sure it’s big enough to hold the hot dogs and their uncooked spaghetti hair) 
  • In a small saucepan, heat baked beans over low heat. Add just enough black beans so the mixture looks like layered earth. Stir in the mustard and continue to cook over low heat. 
  • Break spaghetti into small pieces of mismatched sizes.
  • Cut the hot dog into two unequal halves so you’ll have one short and one tall zombie. 
  • Identify a flat side of the hot dog to be the face. Push pieces of spaghetti into the hot dog to frame the face and cover the head.  Repeat with the other half.
  • Drop hot dogs into boiling water (be sure the water covers the spaghetti-hair) and simmer for 10 minutes or according to the spaghetti’s package directions.
  • Remove zombies from water, drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Dab until the zombie and hair dry.  
  • Pour a few drops of food coloring into a shallow prep bowl, shot glass or another shallow vessel that won’t stain from the dye. Add a drop or two of water.  
  • Lower the hot dog, spaghetti side down, into the food coloring, being careful to not get it on the hot dog itself. (But if you do, no big deal, zombies can have green skin!)
  • After two to three minutes, remove zombies to a paper towel-lined plate and dab spaghetti until the color no longer drips. 
  • Set the hot dog bun on the plate so one side lies flat and the other stands upright.  
  • Spoon bean mixture across the bottom half, over the front side, and onto the plate. 
  • Arrange zombies in beans so it appears as if they are coming out of the earth. Touch up with more bean mixture as necessary, so the bases are buried. 
  • Squeeze a small amount of Feltman’s mustard into a small bowl or plate. Dab a toothpick into the mustard and gently draw eyes and a mouth onto each hot dog half.  
  • Serve and enjoy!
