Rewarmening Wrap Up – Some Fat Kid Food Ideas

The rest of the things that we made for our house rewarming party were all REALLY good, but not really things that require precise recipes. I figure I’ll throw out some pictures and descriptions, and you if you’re interested you can try ’em. We hadn’t made any of these things before, and were just winging it ourselves.

1. Candy Sushi

SO PRETTY! I highly recommend making this! We used Fruit Roll-Ups for the seaweed, Rice Krispie treats for the rice, and Swedish Fish and colored Twizzlers for the filling. The Fruit Roll-Ups were actually kind of a pain to work with and stuck to themselves something fierce, but freezing them for a minute or two helped a bit. My roommate Alex turns out to be a sushi rolling champ!

The colors!

2. Hot Dog Cheeser Pizza

My previous roommate Alex (yeah, Alexes everywhere) introduced our friend group to Hot Dog Cheesers – a hot dog, sliced in half, with a slice of cheese and a slice of pickle in the middle, then wrapped back together with bacon, grilled, and basted in bbq sauce.

The originals, ready to grill.

Everyone’s in love with that now, but it seemed somewhat sacrilegious to make without Alex, so (of course?) we adapted it to a pizza. The Hot Dog Cheeser Pizza has regular pizza sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, hot dog chunks, and pickles. Once it comes out of the oven, you brush it with bbq sauce and sprinkle on a bit more bacon. It may not surprise you to learn that the Hot Dog Cheeser was once known as the Cardiologist’s Nightmare.

3. Kit Kat Fries

You can fry most anything with Bisquick, as it turns out. Follow the recipe for pancake batter, but add an extra cup of the powder, and that thicker batter is great for frying. 375 degree oil and you’re ready to go! For things like candy bars, you’ll want to have frozen them for a few hours beforehand so they don’t melt away while they’re frying. If you have extra batter, just dump it in the oil for some fine fried dough.

That's a buttercream 'ketchup' going on there.

And that was about it. Except, of course, what party is complete without some tiny backyard bike polo? Not this one, that’s for sure.

This is reasonable.

  1. It looks like you threw a couple of Kit Kats in the sushi too, yum. It’s so pretty, I want to hang that picture on my wall! 🙂

      Hehe yeah they were on sale, 3 big packages for cheap, so there were A LOT of them. Ate the last one on my way out the door this morning. Y’know, just doing my bit to clean up.

    How nutritious, but mostly I’m glad you weren’t on a bike in the polo picture

    • sparecake says:

      hah, I’ve sold the only bike I’m willing to trash…
      Did describe those tater tot things to some people this weekend, who sounded very interested – I’d say I come by my nutritional habits honestly=P

    Don’t forget one of the most crucial steps in the HDC Pizza Preparation Process (PPP): frying the hot dog chunks in the leftover bacon grease.before adding it to the pizza. Because shut up.

    (P.S Pro Tip: When you take the fruit roll-nori out of the freezer, immediately take the plastic backing off and wave it around in the air a little bit, then re-apply it while the roll up is still cold. Built in sushi mat. For some reason peeling the plastic off and putting it back on helps make things less sticky-togethery.)
