I keep seeing versions of this Threaded Hot Dog & Spaghetti Bites recipe floating around Pinterest, and decided I finally had to try making them in my kitchen. This simple recipe is a snap to do, and little hands make for the perfect kitchen assistant.
My son, J, was totally on board with this meal. He had a blast stabbing the uncooked spaghetti noodles through the cut up hot dog 'bites'...
...maybe a little too much fun. :)
He watched the entire cooking process and was amazed as this fun-to-make recipe changed appearance and texture. We couldn't decide if our weird creations looked more like spiders...or jellyfish...or maybe even a little like an octopus or squid. Whatever they were, they sure gave us the giggles. J gobbled down his plateful of happy food really quick, and was back for seconds in no time flat. Actually, we all enjoyed this kid-friendly meal...sometimes you just gotta play with your food. :)
