Spaghetti Hot Dogs…a kid’s meal!

When I saw this activity/meal on Pinterest I knew I had to try it with the kids I nanny.  They love hot dogs and spaghetti, so how could they not like this?!?!  I noticed it when it was popping up as a fun Halloween meal (worm spaghetti anyone?!), and that is when we did it first.  Now we make this occasionally, and the kids have a lot of fun putting the spaghetti through the hot hot dogs!  It’s great for little hands because the pieces of hot dog are big enough for them to hold with one hand, and put the spaghetti through with the other.  Using thick spaghetti is key, because thinner spaghetti’s tend to snap and break, and that gets frustrating for the kids.

What you need….

Hot dogs and thick spaghetti (otherwise it breaks when putting it through)

What you do….

Break the spaghetti in half (or use it whole!) and cut the hot dogs up

Spaghetti through hot dog slices (we like 4 or 5 per hot dog)

How to cook….

Drop them in the pot of boiling water, and cook just like you would spaghetti

Time to eat!


Could do a side of ketchup or marinara!

2. Slice hot dogs into bit size pieces.  Break spaghetti in half.

3. Slide strands of spaghetti through the hot dog slices (we do 4-5 per piece)

4. Put pieces into boiling water.  Boil according to package instructions (7-9 minutes), and drain when pasta is finished cooking.
