Savoury Snacks

I had a couple of lovely readers ask about these snack baskets I made in the weekend for the kids in this post.

They are super easy to make and you only need a few ingredients.  I had a nearly whole loaf of bread that needed to be used up, so these are perfect for this.

What you need:

Bread slices
Tinned spaghetti (or you could use baked beans)
Grated cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste


Dice onion and roughly chop the bacon.
Quickly fry in olive oil
In a bowl place your tinned spaghetti and add the cooked onion and bacon
Add salt and pepper to taste
Mix well

Remove crusts from bread and press down into a muffin tray
Spoon in the yummy spag/onion/bacon filling
Sprinkle with grated cheese

I baked these in the oven (Bake/180 deg) until the bread is golden brown and the cheese was bubbling.

  1. Thank you so much for posting the recipe for these! I am always looking for new snacks for the kids and I know that this one will score! You rock!

  2. What a fabulous idea for kids or parties or any time really. I am so trying. xxx

  3. Made these after I saw your post the other day for the kids and they ate them all! Which is amazing as my littlies don't usually eat much. I sprinkled a little bit of basil on and added Cajun spice to mine, yum. Thanks for the idea!

    1. I like the idea of adding a bit of spice. Delish. x

  4. I remember my dad making these for us when I was a child..funny how it takes a blog post to jog my memory :)

  5. Ahh, these bring back some memories. I'll have to try these for my kids too. X

  6. Ha..funny...I noticed these in your other blog post and thought "Ooo..I wonder how you make those?'. I reckon my kids would love them. I think I might make some for lunch boxes. Have you ever eaten them cold??

    1. I ate them cold in the afternoon and they are so good. I definately intend to make them for lunchbox treats.

  7. I bet these are a huge hit with children, the crunchy bread and the spaghetti and cheese yummo. x

  8. Gosh they do look delicious lovely...I love spaghetti hoops.

  9. Yum! I'm going to give them a go this weekend. Thanks for sharing :)

  10. Oh, I remember my mum making something similar for birthday parties when I was little! Yum! Will definitely have to try them out on my boys :) Thanks so much for joining in with Fun with Food!! x

  11. Thanks for sharing this! I wanted to know more about them too.

    Snack baskets is a great name for them. I make something similar for breakfast where you put egg and bacon and cheese sauce into the bread baskets and bake - they are totally lush! Yours sound quicker and easier though - my ones are a faff. x

  12. Yum! Will definitely try these - Thankyou for sharing!
