                        To make worms:                      
   4      quarts        water                               
   1      tablespoon    salt                                
   2      cups          egg noodles                         
   8      ounces        spaghetti                           
                        --broken into short pieces          
   2      tablespoons   butter or margarine                 
   1 1/2  cups          American cheese -- grated           
     1/2  teaspoon      vegetable oil                       
                                                            
                        To make dirt:
   2                   whole-wheat bread slices -- toasted    
   1      tablespoon   butter or margarine -- melted
      1/4  teaspoon      salt  

	To prepare worms:  Fill a large pot with 4 quarts of water and add the salt.  Heat over
medium to high heat until the water comes to a rapid boil.  Add the egg noodles and
spaghetti (worms) and allow the water to come to a boil again.  Lower the heat and cook
the worms on a slow boil, uncovered, for about 8 to 10 minutes.  Drain and pour them
into a large bowl.  Toss with butter or margarine and the grated cheese.  Grease the
inside of a casserole dish with the vegetable oil.  Pour the cooked worms into the dish
and set aside.  To prepare the dirt:  In a small bowl, crumble the toasted bread into tiny
crumbs.  Mix melted butter and salt with the crumbs to create dirt.  Sprinkle dirt over
worms and place under the broiler for 5 minutes.
