The Joy of Cooking Milhouse

“The King of the Hill,” season 9 episode 23

It’s time for part three of “The King of the Hill” recipe series! Go here for part one and a tasty deviled eggs recipe, and go here for part two and a mind-bending recipe for a tub of ice cream with mini pies on top.

After somehow resisting temptation and picking up some Powersauce Bars instead of a giant bucket of pie ice cream, Homer heads to the all-night “gime” (gym). Wolfcastle is there maintaining his buff McBaine body and ends up training him. After a couple of months of hard work and a lot of bars (more on that later), Homer has buffed up enough to rip his shirt sleeves.

At family mealtime, Homer eats more bars as the family eats a grey casserole. “Sorry, I only eat food in bar form. When you concentrate food, you unleash it’s awesome power… I’m told,” he explains. Then he compresses five pounds of spaghetti into one handy mouth-sized bar and eats it. Then promptly calls the hospital.

It’s time to make a spaghetti bar, baby! I spent some time considering how to compress FIVE pounds of spaghetti into a small bar and then reminded myself that it is a cartoon and that’s very much not possible. But how can you force spaghetti into a bar form at all? You’re not going to like the answer (the freezer). I don’t actually recommend eating this—it’s just a fun, gross gag for boring days.

Spaghetti Bar

About 1/2 cup leftover Spaghetti and Moe Balls, packed
1 silicone candy bar form (or a small, rectangular plastic, metal, or rubber container)
Plastic wrap

  1. Line your chosen rectangular form with plastic wrap.
  2. Add the spaghetti and press it into the form, packing it tight and filling in all of the corners.
  3. Fold the plastic wrap over the top. Place the form in the freezer and top with some items with a little weight to them. Suggestions: a few frozen pizza boxes, a small casserole dish, etc.
  4. Let freeze for at least an hour before unmolding.
