Great Snacks You Make!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Muusers, Sep 21, 2008.

  1. Every guy in the world has got his own signature snack he makes whenever he gets the munchies. What's yours? Sandwiches, fried stuff, bacon or whatever you put in a pan, everything is welcome here. Share the recipes and the pics!:hyper:
  2. "collectively baked individual nachos"

    baking pan covered in 'aluminium' foil (cookie sheet, pizza pan, etc)
    4" round tortilla chips, then add to each one:

    spread a bit of spicy refried beans on each chip
    add a slice of sharp cheddar
    Mezetta sliced pepper ring
    sliced black olives

    bake 325 for 6 minutes or so, just until the cheese melts nicely.
    put a bit of your favorite salsa on one and enjoy.

    Never make this in a microwave, this absolutely requires a standard old-school oven 'radiant / convection' heat.

    Much better than the "pile on" style of nachos, these taste better and eat better. Plus, if your child / significant other likes a slight variation of ingredients, it is no problem.

    Goes well with Pinot Grigio.

    I thought your title was supposed to be like Yoda giving someone a compliment on their snack-making skills.

  4. What would Yoda do?

    Your ass, kick it he would!!

    Melt all of the above together. When ready to serve put a dollup of sour cream in and mix.

    Serve with bread, tortilla chips, celery, whatever. :)

    You can half the recipe. This feeds about 8-10.

    Take a french baguette and cut into 1/2 inch thick medallions.

    Take half and put roast beef and some horseradish on it.

    Take the other half and put turkey and cranberry mustard on it.

    These go QUICK!

    Cinnamon Sugar Toast....pretty self explanatory except for the butter.
    Cheese N' Triscuts (they hold up real nice in the nuke, for a good quick snack)

    I know my snacks are lacking so I have to mention I also make some killer diners, chicken paprikash (sp), sushi... and then there is beer...but that's another post entirely.

    Pasta a la Tom: (named after my roommate)

    1/2 lb. whole wheat Pasta (rotini works best, IME)
    3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped.
    1-2 chicken breasts (optional)
    2 chicken bullion cubes (optional)
    Italian bread crumbs
    Butter and EVOO.

    Boil two chicken breasts, and dice (optional) Boil pasta in strong chicken broth made from bullion cubes (optional) and drain, remove from pan. Add EVOO and small pats of butter to pot, roast garlic over low heat until just barely starting to color and remove from heat. Add pasta and chicken if made, stir well. Begin to pour on bread crumbs until everything is evenly coated to taste.

    Plenty of carbs and plenty of flavor. We make whole pounds here and the five of us all eat it regularly.

    Hard salami and cream cheese trumpets... you just take a stack of hard salami, and chop all the slices in half (half rounds). Apply about a teaspoon of cream cheese to each, and roll up into cone shapes and skewer with a toothpick. They don't last nearly long enough.

    I also like to stuff large ripe olives with cream cheese. Oh, man. Cream cheese FTW. I usually use a frosting bag with a small tip for stuffing the olives, but you can probably stuff them with a spoon as long as you soften the cream cheese first.

    This is one that an ex girlfriend showed me. She would slice up a Hillshire Farms sausage into 1/4" slices (yellow label "Smoked Sausage"), and just serve that cold with Frito Lay nacho cheese dip. I always thought she was gross for eating that until I was hungry one day. That's actually one of my favorites now.

    2 Pop Tarts, toasted, smothered in butter on the non frosted side, and then smashed together. Mmmm, heart attack sandwich. Actually, that's...

    WinCo sells these herb and cheese bagels that are to die for, so I cut em in half widthwise, toast each half, butter the inside of each half, and stick bacon in between the two halves. THAT is a heart attack sandwich.

    There's a fat kid that lives inside me, I swear.

    Cook up some bacon, grate some cheese, cut up bacon into small pieces, disperse bacon and cheese onto a tortilla, melt in the microwave. Delicious.

    I'm also known to make a mean tostada. It's pretty much a plate completely filled with beans with two tostada shells buried under somewhere

    You will need

    4 tablespoons cake flour(plain flour, not self-raising),

    4 tablespoons sugar,

    2 tablespoons baking cocoa,

    1 egg,

    3 tablespoons milk,

    3 tablespoons oil
    3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

    a small splash of vanilla

    1 lg. coffee mug

    Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix

    thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate

    chips (if using) and vanilla essence, and mix again.

    Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
    The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!

    Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

    EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to feel slightly more virtuous).

    And why is this the most dangerous cake recipe in the world?

    Because now we are all only 5 minutes away from chocolate cake at any time of the day or night.
