  • Mix drained noodles and boiled hot dog slices with butter in pan
  • Sprinkle and stir garlic powder to taste
  • Add ketchup again to taste
  • Over low heat pour the cup of previously collected boil juice and mix gently
  • When the mixture is absorbed it is ready
  • Serve   " Daddy's Spaghetti  " to grand children and even some adults when camping in the wilds of Nevada's huge empty spaces :-)

Step 2: BOIL

Boil Toil and Trouble
I like to paraphrase, the three witches in William Shakespeare's Macbeth.
Whenever there is cauldron
rolling boil on the stove beneath me ( I'm 6'1" high )
  • Take three Ramen packages
  • Cut up four hot dogs ( one plus the number of Ramen packs )
  • Put it in enough water to submerge it all ( yes it floats )
  • Add about 1/4 cup of olive oil  ( keeps the foam down )
  • Add only one seasoning packet per three noddle packages.
  • Start a rolling boil and reduce the heat to a boil ( about 3 Minutes )

Step 3: DRAIN

When the boil is complete drain the noodles and dog slices.

But keep a cup of the juice for later.

Step 4: SEASON to FLAVOR and ABSORBE

Place a third of a stick of butter in the pan and begin browning it.
  • After browning the butter,
  • Drop the noodles with dogs to mix with butter
  • Then sprinkle the Garlic powder to taste
  •  It doesn't hurt to add some more butter on top
  • Add the Ketchup, Pour in the cup of Boil juice and
  • Simmer over low heat until absorbed.

Can't figure out why this is not coming up as collaboration. "Daddy" has an identity!
