Mrs. Fizzy's 7-layer bug dip

Mrs. Fizzy's 7-layer bug dip

If you're always looking for a good recipe like I am, try this delicious 7-layer bug dip. You can make it with ingredients you already have hanging around the house!

1 can seafood pate

35 fireflies, dewinged and lightly breaded

14 large black ants (the plump, juicy kind)

2 dozen horseflies, well mashed

45 earwig heads, toasted

8 fleas

23 black beatles, gently sautéed in a pound of butter

A pawful of ladybugs (for color)

2 tomatoes

Catnip, to taste

Open can of seafood pate (ok, ok, grudgingly ask pesky human to open can of seafood pate); spread generously in large baking dish. Lick at will. Layer fireflies, ants, horseflies, and earwig heads in a circular motion until the pate is covered. Eat the fleas. Toss black beatles into the baking dish evenly. Dot the top with ladybugs, making a smiley face pattern with their corpses. Throw tomatoes in trash can. Cover dish with heaping spoonfuls of catnip, then bake for 1 minute at 350 degrees. Unlock jaw; enjoy.


  1. Mmmmmm! That sounds like a delicious recipe! I think you are right about the tomaters.

    ps: Guess what? Harley is modelin' a chef's cap tomorrow!

  2. That sounds delicious. It is too bad that I am not much of a cook!

  3. Yes, I was wondering what tomatoes were doing in that list of ingreediants! I just have one question -- are these bugs dead or alive when you're using them?

    Nice touch eating the fleas, when normally it's the other way around. You really are purrverse!

  4. Sounds so nommy! We can't wait to try this recipe! Love the part about throwing the tomatoes in the trashcan!!! LOL!

  5. You may use live or dead bugs in this recipe....but it is difficult to coat live fireflies in breading- believe me, I have tried!

  6. I like that chef's hat!! That sounds like a super delish dish.
