  • 12 slices sandwich bread
  • 50 g butter, melted
  • 300 g can Wattie's Spaghetti

  5. Bake at 180°C for 15 minutes until the cheese has melted, the bacon crispy and filling hot.

Normally I shudder at spaghetti or baked bean recipes, but this one is FANTASTIC. My son loves these things, and they're really simple & quick to make.

Hi. Do you drain the spaghetti first?

I lost count of the amount of times I've made these! they are perfect snacks for when you don't want a full dinner. Or lunch.
Absolutely Brillant!

If you haven't got a lot of bread on hand, this recipe also converts to a 'big serve' quick fix. Line an oven proof dish with the bread & add some cooked leftover veg e.g. silverbeet, pumpkin, plus finely chopped fresh or fried onion, then put the spaghetti etc on top.

These bread cases are great with a variety of fillings if you don't like spaghetti, try creamed sweetcorn etc. (even if you're a big kid like my husband!) Liz

Emma's Review | Rating

These are fab! My mum used to make these for me when I was a kid. Other variations used were sweetcorn with onion topped with cheese. Recently I've found a recipe involving bacon and onion with a cracked egg on top - mini bacon and egg pies. mmm!

I do as a variation, sea food, like chopped mussels in a curry sauce, which is made up of a white sauce with the curry powder added. Depending on how many I'm making. I guess measurements. I choose this recipe whenever I am asked to take a plate. The cut off crusts are made into bread crumbs
