Breakfast Spaghetti with Hot Dog- The Haitian Way

If you ask any of the people really close to me in my life they will tell you that this is my favorite guilty pleasure. I love Haitian breakfast spaghetti with hot dogs. The only thing this video is missing is some ketchup and mayonnaise and a few banan peze and some fresh picklies on the side. I know americans always say "ewe that is so gross", but for real don't knock it until you try it. 

Haitian Spaghetti with Hot Dogs


  • 1lb Spaghetti
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic (chopped)
  • 1 cup White Onion (sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme (fresh, leaves only, can use dried)
  • 5 hot dogs 
  • 1  1/2 tablespoon Chicken Bouillon Powder or 1 Cube
  • Salt to taste
  • 1  1/2 cups Reserved Pasta Water
  • Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 Habanero
  • Crushed Red Pepper (to taste-optional)
  • Ketchup (preferably a caribbean sweet version)
  • Mayonnaise 


Boil pasta according to package. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the pasta water for later use.

In a heavy large saucepan, heat oil and add tomato sauce or ketchup. (if using ketchup add 1 additional tablespoon)  Cook tomato paste for 3 - 4 minutes while stirring occasionally.  Add garlic, onion, whole haanero, thyme, and hot dog and cook for 4 minutes while stirring to blend. Add chicken bouillon and stir.  Add pasta and stir to blend while gradually adding the pasta water.  Lower heat and cover and cook for another 4-5 minutes.  Add crushed red pepper if using.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let the noodles crisp up just a bit for little bits of crunch to taste. Top with ketchup and mayonnaise and serve with banan peze and picklies, or some hard boiled eggs and avocado.
