Barbecued Worm Sandwiches

     If you're looking for the ultimate in gross party food, these Barbecued Worm Sandwiches from Pillsbury look like mounds of slimy earthworms piled on a bun.  They couldn't be easier to make, slice the hot dogs the long way, saute them over a full spread of coals until they start to curl then simmer them in barbecue sauce until they are hot and bubbling.   Double or triple the recipe if you are feeding a crowd.  Spoon them on a fresh hamburger bun with a slice of cheese and you've got the makings of a surprisingly good sandwich.  Scouts, kids and young at heart adults will love the yuck factor.  Great to serve at your campsite or Halloween party, fun to make and even more fun to eat, turn your dutch oven into a witch's cauldron with these slithering sandwiches.
