Cheesy Spaghetti Beehive

Made this when my friend and her daughter came over for a play date. The kids thought this was cute, really looked like a beehive, per their words.

It is filled with creamy chicken and cheese, a total fun and yummy meal 🙂

100 g spaghetti

salt as needed

water as needed

margarine as needed

1 garlic, minced

100 g onion, chopped

2 fresh red chilies, seeded

1 green onion, sliced

1 green paprika, diced

1 tomatoes, take out the inside, diced

200 g fresh shrimp, skinned, chopped

300 g boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed

1 Indonesian bay leaf (daun salam), if you cannot find it (available at Asian stores, they are dried and black), just use bay leaf

150 cc broth, whichever you have veggie, chicken, beef

50 g flour

175 grated cheese

4 eggs, beaten

Cook spaghetti in salted boiling water for 10 minutes, drain then wash with cold water so they won’t stick to one another

Grease heat proof bowl or beehive cake mold with margarine, generously, then as shown on picture, start threading the spaghetti, round and round following the curve of the bowl, shaping into an upside down beehive, set aside

Now let’s make the filling!

Mix broth with flour, stir to combine well in a glass, set aside

Heat about 2 tbsp margarine, saute garlic and onion until tender. Stir in paprika, chili and green onion followed with chicken, shrimp and daun salam, stir well

Pour in broth mixture and 150 g of the cheese and eggs, cook to thickened and add in a pinch or two salt if needed.

Take off mixture from heat and pour into prepared beehive

Sprinkle with leftover grated cheese, cover with foil and steam for an hour long

Take out bowl/mold from steamer, let stand to room temperature before serving

Unmold to a serving plate and slice to serve. Enjoy 🙂
