The Bread-Part 1

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

Pour warm water (around 110 degrees) into a large mixing bowl. Next, add 1/2 tsp of black gel food coloring to the water and stir it together until the gel coloring has dissolved. Add the yeast to the mixture, slowly stir the water and yeast together then let it sit on the counter for about 5 minutes.

The yeast will foam up at around 4-5 minutes. By adding the gel food coloring to the water mixture, the color will coat all of the flour.


The Bread-Part 2

When the yeast has foamed, add the vegetable oil, egg, sugar, salt and 2 cups of flour in the bowl. Using a wooden or straight plastic spoon, stir the ingredients together. After all is mixed well, add the remainder of the flour. Stir, with the spoon until the dough is hard to stir.


The Bread-Part 3

Sprinkle flour onto a clean counter top or large cutting board. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and begin kneading the dough for about 3 minutes.


The Bread-Part 4

Using your hands, press the dough out into a rectangle or oval shape. Using a knife, cut the dough into 8-12 burger sized rolls or 24 slider sized rolls.

Roll each piece of dough into a ball and place it on your cookie sheet. Leave about 1 inch of space between each ball.

Cover the pan with a towel and place in a warm dry area (like a pantry) for about 10 minutes to let the dough balls rise a little.

Bake for 8-12 minutes (time will depend on your oven)


The Bacon Legs-Part 1

Heat your oven to 375 degrees.

Tear off a piece of aluminum foil (about 8 inches long) then roll one end up to about half way of the sheet. Leave the last part of the foil straight. Make 2-3 more foil rolls ups to fit your cookie sheet.


The Bacon Legs-Part 2

Lay the turkey bacon onto a cutting board. Cut 4 strips, lengthwise, from each strip of bacon. Then, cut once across the center of the bacon.


The Bacon Legs-Part 3

Place the longest pieces into a mixing bowl.

Add 1/4 tsp of the gel food coloring. Using a spoon or butter knife, stir the bacon and coloring together until the color has coated all of the bacon.


The Bacon Legs-Part 4

Lay the colored strips of bacon across the foil rolls and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.

Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and place it on a trivet or thick towel on the counter. Let the bacon cool on the foil rolls in the cookie sheet.


The Patties

Heat your griddle to 350 degrees.

Lay a large piece of parchment paper down onto a clean countertop. Place the ground beef on the paper. Lay another large piece of parchment paper on top of the beef and press the beef down to about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thickness.

Remove the top sheet of parchment paper from the beef and toss it in the trash.

Shape the beef into a rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut rows down and across the beef to make square patties.

Place the patties on the griddle and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. Flip only one time.

When cooked, remove from the griddle and place them on a plate.


Let's Build a Spider Burger!

Slice the buns in half, place the burger patty on the bottom bun, add a slice of cheese, and some ketchup (or your favorite condiment). I positioned two slices of cheese to look like fangs in the spider burger pictured.

Next, place the bacon spider legs on the cheese. As you are adding the top hamburger bun on the burger, place the olive eyes between the bottom and top buns.
