Oh I know. You don’t even have to tell me. You’re thinking “What in the world are these? SpaghettiOs deviled eggs? Why!?!” Well, I don’t know why. No, they’re not really deviled eggs. But in their own way, they’re kind of cool. Hey, what kid wants to eat grandma’s boring deviled eggs? On the flip side, what kid wouldn’t want to eat eggs stuffed with SpaghettiOs?
Once you warm to the idea of SpaghettiOs deviled eggs (and you will), you can mix up the stuffing. Try RavioliOs. Or SpaghettisOs with meatballs! And there are many themed cans you can try.
I use a little egg cooker when making boiled eggs. It cooks them perfectly every single time!

SpaghettiOs Deviled Eggs
- Boiled eggs
- Freshly ground black pepper
Remove the shells from the eggs. Cut in half and remove the yokes. Reserve for another use, such as a real deviled egg!
Spoon in the SpaghettiOs. You can warm them first if you wish.
Sprinkle with pepper (or your favorite seasoning or garnish) and serve.
Gone in 60 seconds. No, not the movie. This Cheetos popcorn snack. Like that, poof. Gone. Popcorn needed Cheetos. Cheetos needed popcorn. It’s a marriage made in heaven. Perfect for a big crowd, too. Just have some napkins on hand because there are going to be some orange fingers.
There are a lot of ways to customize this snack. For your friends that like spicy foods I’d add a few good-sized pinches of cayenne pepper to the cheese powder mixture. And instead of ‘normal’ Cheetos I’d use the Flamin’ Hot flavored snacks.
You can substitute any popcorn you’d like, even pre-popped. Or microwaved. Even flavored will be fine, but you might have to cut back on the seasoned salt.

Transfer popped corn to a large bowl. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and cheddar cheese powder. Stir gently to combine.
Fold in the Cheetos and serve.
If you’ve never made or tried burnt ends, I highly recommend them. As great as smoked brisket is, burnt ends are brisket candy. Highly addicting, they are a real treat. But hey, they do take time and brisket isn’t always the cheapest cut. So what to do if you want to feed a crowd of some meat candy without breaking the bank? Yep, you guessed it: hot dog burnt ends. Smoked hot dogs covered in a caramelized sauce, you’ll never eat those little sausage thingies again. Perfect for a party, these goodies will disappear in no time.
There’s absolutely nothing challenging about making these hot dog burnt ends. If you don’t have a smoker you can make the entire dish on a grill. You can even use a gas grill. If you do, I recommend you use a smoky BBQ sauce to add a little of that great I-made-these-on-a-smoker even-though-I-didn’t flavor.
Hot Dog Burnt Ends
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
- 2 8- count packages hot dogs no need to get the expensive stuff here
- 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons your favorite BBQ rub
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup your favorite BBQ Sauce
Fire up your smoker for 225 F. Use any wood you like, these turn out great whether they are smoked over fruit wood or a stronger wood such as mesquite.
Squeeze the mustard over the dogs then brush around all sides. (I found it easier to just spread the mustard with my hands).
Sprinkle the rub over all sides of the dogs. Transfer to your smoker and smoke for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, fire up your grill for medium heat cooking (or pre-heat your oven to 375 F).
Remove dogs and cut into thirds (about 1 1/2" pieces). Transfer to a disposable pan.
Combine the butter, brown sugar and BBQ sauce and pour over the hot dogs. Stir and place on your grill (or in the oven).
Cook dogs an addition 30-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the hot dogs have begun to caramelize.
Remove and let cool slightly before serving.
