Jellyfish Hot Dogs.
Yup! You heard me, that's what i served for Dinner the other night when i had some friends over.
When i told my friends what was on the Menu they were like, "Jellyfish? Hotdogs? The two doesn't go together my dear..." Of trust me, it does LOL.
Spaghetti can get real boring. Everyone can make Tomato Pasta! They all look alike! At times…can even look rather… nasty? - if presented badly.
Some will also know this dish as Hairy Hot Dogs, but i find that name rather sickening so i'd stick to the Jellyfish name. Jellyfish Hot Dogs are mostly served as a Main dish, but i decided to lighten the portions and make it into a small hot Appetizer instead.
Feeding people with creative food is one of my habits. Haha! Mostly comes from trying to get picky kids to eat but hey! Comes in handy when you have guests over! So you ready to get the recipe? Here it goes.
Regular Spaghetti noodles
Sauce of your choice
1. First step is cutting up a couple hot dogs into the jellyfish caps.
Note: Remember to allow enough room to stab the raw noodles into.
2. Now push in the raw noodles slowly.
Note: Using regular spaghetti noodles can sometimes break with handling. Take in mind how much they expand. You can also snap the Spaghetti noodles in half before jabbing them in.
3. Boil some water in a pot with added Salt and put the Jellyfish hot dogs in.
4. Once the Noodles are soft to your liking, drain and carefully put to the side.
5. Cook and mix in any sauce to your liking. Season, decorate and serve.
I personally think Classic Tomato sauce goes best with Jellyfish Hotdogs. I also decided to cook in some Black Olives and mushrooms. For the final touches i seasoned and decorated with Parsley, black pepper and parmesan cheese.
Don't worry, the noodles do stay connected to the hot dogs although they don’t cook as well inside the mystery meat and are slightly crunchy, so it's best to find Spaghetti noodles that soften easier.
Let me know what you think! Happy Cookings and Good Luck in the kitchen! :)
