    This is like everything that little kids like to eat shoved into one recipe.

    Really so gross. Almost as gross as hot dog pie, which I found out about today. Love your blog, it’s hilarious:)

    I’ve been trying to find an original recipe like this. My grandmother use to make it. Its similar to this, but no mustard. we use a can of tomatoes instead. Sounds gross? yes. One of the few recipes my picky kids will eat!!!

    Frank Whiz Spaghetti! That almost dethrones Jiffy Cheesefurters as my favorite mid-century recipe name.
