"Slimy Sliders" on a Bun... for an active kid's imagination
I wish I had found this idea when I was raising my family... it would have been so much easier to get them to at least LOOK at their dinner before Trick-or-Treating on Halloween night. Incredibly simple to make - and easy to prep to keep in the refrigerator until minutes before the witching hour...
Between the ages of about five and twelve, my kids entered the “gross out” stage. Anything “gross” was desirable at that age, and especially if they had friends in the range of hearing at the time. Sooo... Halloween and the days preceding it were prime time for enjoying a double dose of GROSS.
These sandwiches are great to throw together FAST for a pre-trick-or-treat snack. Once you get past the first glance, you’ll be surprised at how well hot dogs & barbecue sauce go together. These slippery little things are good sandwiched in a hamburger bun, or in these easy little Pumpkin Knots (shown in the photo above) that I’ll post soon. (For an extra sensory experience - some kids will even eat them with their hands)
