Mummy Dogs and Tater Bugs

Who wants a MUMMY DOG?  Maybe a  TATER BUG?
Not real ones silly...Yummy ones!
Every year since My Pretty Princess started kindergarten it has become a tradition that we we make one Halloween inspired treat/dinner a week. 

So... Yesterday we made Mummy Dogs and Tater Bugs!  

Want to make your own? You do? 
Well then, let me tell you how I made mine!

-1 package hot dogs
-2 pepper dots
Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Make eyes with dots of mustard and put the dots of pepper in the center.

-tater tots
-uncooked spaghetti
-carrot sticks
-sour cream (optional)

Bake Tater tots at 450 degrees for 5 minutes. Take out then use piece of the spaghetti to connect 3 Taters together. Bake for 7 minutes more. Julianne some carrots (or you can buy the matchstick kind} Stick two on each side of the bug to make legs. Stick tiny broccoli florets in for the antennae. You can use a little dot of sour cream and cut up tiny olives for the eyes if you want.

Bake for 5 minutes

I used baby carrots and sliced them, broccoli, dried spaghetti

"Thread" three Taters onto the spaghetti

 This is what they will look like when you put them in to bake for the remaining 7 minutes.

When they come out of the oven, stick the carrots (legs) into the sides. I cut two little slits into the tops for the antennae. Then stuck the broccoli in. The spaghetti cooks and helps hold it together so you get to eat the whole thing!

Cute little buggers...

Pretty Princess and her friends gobbled them up!  They loved 'em!  Now go make you some Halloween'y yummy fun-ness1 (Yep, I just made up my own word...I'm good at that!)
