Watch out, Martha Stewart!

The stars of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo have some of their own culinary tricks to share with viewers.

"I think the family's favorite meal is sketti," Mama June reveals on an episode of the TLC hit. Sketti, it turns out, is spaghetti noodles topped with heaps of butter and liberal squirts of ketchup.

"It's an old family recipe," says June, who is shown mixing scoops of butter with ketchup into a plastic container and melting the mixture together in a microwave.

One big fan of the concoction: the show's 7-year-old star Alana Thompson, who says "Oh, it smells so good," and takes a taste of sauce.

June says the meal, which she grew up eating, is delicious – and budget friendly.

"I'll feed them on about $80 a week," she says of the family of six.

As for knowing when the "sketti" is cooked just right? They have a trick for that, too. "When you throw it up on the wall and it sticks!" says Alana.
