Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to this week’s edition of “Tried It Thursday”. I always find things on the internet that I want to try. Sometimes I actually do the project or idea. Often times I wonder if the directions were a lie and if I’m only destined for failure. In this blog I will show you things I found and if they can be done according to the directions. I’m sure I will fail from time to time but I hope to have more successes than failures.
Braided Spaghetti Bread
Difficulty level: Moderate – Easy

Direction Accuracy: 0 of 0
Re-directional Source Data: joysama images
Real Source: Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Blog
Original Source: Pinterest
Where I Went Wrong: NA
Where The Directions Went Wrong: This time I ran in to some disappointment with the source on Pinterest. The first problem was there was no recipe. When looking for the recipe I discovered that this image is being claimed by many bloggers claiming this is their recipe. It’s disheartening to see a lack of integrity in the blogging community such as this. I believe that I found the original source of this image and recipe at Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Blog. Their recipe was 100% accurate and easy to follow.
Recipe: (From Rhodes Bake-N-Serv Blog)
- 1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough or 12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
- 6 oz spaghetti, cooked
- 1 cup thick spaghetti sauce
- 8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 –inch cubes
- 1 egg white
- Parmesan cheese
- Parsley flakes
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray (or use parchment paper). Roll loaf or combined dinner rolls into a 12×16-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain and let cool slightly. Remove wrap from dough. Place spaghetti lengthwise in a 4-inch strip down the center of dough. Tip with sauce and cheese cubes. (I mixed my spaghetti and sauce together and added a ½ pound of cooked Italian Sausage) Make cuts 1 ½-inches apart on long sides of dough to within ½-inch of filling. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. Then braid strips left over right, right over left. Finish by pulling last strip over and tucking under braid. Lift braid with both hands and place on large sprayed baking sheet. (or transfer parchment paper to baking sheet). Brush with egg white and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley (I added garlic powder). Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice to serve.
Braided Spaghetti Bread
Other than the Buffalo Chicken Salad Wreath this is my favorite new recipe. It takes simple spaghetti and turns in it to something more. The Braided Spaghetti Bread is visually appealing and would be a nice dish to serve at a party or potluck. Braided Spaghetti Bread is cheap and easy to make; yet it taste delicious. I find Braided Spaghetti Bread to be texturally appealing as it offers contrasting textures that work well together. Who would have thought bread stuffed with spaghetti would be such a tasty dish? My family loves this recipe and has asked that we make it again. I made too much spaghetti so I ended up making two loaves of raided Spaghetti Bread. It’s wonderfully because it’s lasted for 4 meals so far! I highly recommend trying Braided Spaghetti Bread, you won’t be disappointed.
- Add 1/2 lb of Italian sausage to your hamburger meat.
- Break your spaghetti noodles in two fourths before cooking them.
- Use an extra cup of spaghetti sauce.
- Sprinkle garlic salt on top with the parsley flakes.
- Sub mozzarella cheese for pepper jack cheese for an extra kick.
