Fun Food For Kids

on June 22, 2016

Years ago a young Amethesto received a book titled Silly Snacks: Family Fun in the Kitchen.

It had been forgotten on the shelf for quite awhile but she was flipping through it recently and wanted to try the “bugs and grubs” recipe. Sounds pretty gross but it is really just cocktail sausages wrapped in dough with pretzels stuck in for legs. Whew!
This would be great for young bug enthusiasts, nature themed parties or homeschool units, or even Halloween. It is simple so kids can help out easily.
My plan was to make a batch of crescent roll dough but a migraine struck me and I was not up to doing anything for quite awhile today. Just opening and closing my eyes hurt so no way was I making dough! Hagbard ran to the store and bought 2 cans of crescent roll dough- 16 oz of dough if you are making your own.

Grubs and Bugs
12 oz cocktail sausages (32 links)
2 cans crescent roll dough (8 oz each)
Thin pretzel sticks

Heat oven to 375°F. Grease baking sheet.
Cut triangles in half. Roll sausage up in dough triangle. Place on baking sheet.
For bugs- break pretzel sticks in half and insert 3 on each side of body for legs.
Bake 11-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes 32 bugs and/or grubs.

We are having these with baked beans (bug eggs?), salad and fruit.
