Hot Dog Spiders

My son Kai’s birthday is October 21st and his favorite holiday is Halloween!

I love to make fun healthy Halloween Food for my keto kids! I hope they remember the special little details when they grow up!

I often get asked if my kids are keto. Yes they are and they LOVE the food! Especially when you can have a bacon burger made into Hot Dog Spiders! Whether you are a keto kid or a keto kid at heart, these hot dog spiders are delicious and fun to eat at any age!

Often times when we think of Halloween, our minds automatically go to candy and chocolate! We still celebrate and enjoy Halloween without the sugar and so can you!

We are often told to see food as fuel and nothing else, but food is more than that. Certain foods trigger memories and emotions. It isn’t bad to enjoy food, my goal is for you to enjoy and fall in love with ketogenic foods so you can not only nourish your soul but nourish your body.

  • Whole Peppercorns for eyes


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Slice the hot dogs lengthwise into 8 long strips (for the spider legs).
  • Place a piece of bacon onto a piece of parchment paper.
  • Take 1/8 pound of beef season lightly with salt. Divide the beef into 2 balls and make 2 inch thin patties.
  • Place one patty onto the center of the bacon. Place the ends of 4 hot dog spider legs into the hamburger patty facing one way and place the ends of 4 hot dog spider legs into the hamburger patty facing the other way. Top with the other patty and press to seal using your fingers. Wrap one end of the bacon around the top of the hamburger patty and tuck under the burger patty. Wrap the other end of the bacon around the patty and tuck under the patty to avoid the bacon curling up.
  • Repeat with remaining hot dogs, bacon and hamburger. So you have 4 hot dog spiders.
  • Slide the parchment onto a baking sheet with edges (there will be grease). Place into the oven for 12-15 minutes or until bacon is cooked to your liking.
  • Meanwhile make the Spider Web Sauce. Place the ketchup into a small dish. Make a bullseye in the ketchup with the yellow mustard. Use a toothpick and make 7 lines starting from the center of the bullseye and move the toothpick to the outer edge of the bullseye to make a Spider Web.
  • Make eyeballs for the spiders by placing 2 dots of mustard onto the bacon where they eyes would be. Place a peppercorn into the center of each dot of mustard.
  • Serve the warm hot dog spiders with the spider web dipping sauce.
  • Best served fresh.

    I have used your macro calculator and have lost 7.3 pounds in the last 6 days! I’m so excited to see the scale starting to respond!
    My question for you is can you help someone like me who has endometriosis? I am trying to wean myself off of depo provera and am afraid that the extreme pain will come back. My doctor recommended this diet to help with inflammation. Thanks for any advice or tips!!
