So I started cooking again....
« on: September 29, 2014, 09:26:55 pm »
Okay,

Well I know that most of you know NOTHING about me and that is whatever. So I think I'll introduce myself in a slightly different way. I talk about what I made for lunch today, complete with pictures!!!

I like food and I've been cooking since I could stand in the kitchen and follow directions. If it trots, crawls, swims, slimes, or slithers I have probably eaten it. More often than not when watching a travel show that talks about "weird food" I've eaten it. The fair is happening right now and the combinations of salty, sweet, spicy, savory, sour have turned my tastebuds all crazy and I just had to have a scotch egg.  If you don't know what a scotch egg is well it is an egg wrapped in a meat, rolled in bread crumbs and fried or baked.

so i decided it was time to make my own version of Scotch Eggs.

I boiled some large eggs, leaving them actually softboiled and peeled them.
I made a Ricotta and Jack cheese mix with bits of jalapeno and spices.
I wrapped the eggs in cheese and then wrapped the cheese sausage and fried it.
I then made a frybread batter and batter fried the whole thing.

It was so freaking good, I polished it off with a Sam Adam's Oktoberfest and decided to tell you guys... I don't know why.

A cooking thread is a nice thing to have. Congrats on the initiative!

And yeah, that looks totally delicious.  Maybe we can much that while we sit in Meridian's Replacement Depot.  ;)

Cheers, Ivan :D

Tomorrow, I am going to be making a beef Stroganoff relying heavily on Mediterranean influences, but with a twist.

Stay tuned.

A cooking thread on an XCom forum? Ha! That's pretty good :) I had never heard of scotch eggs, so it seems like I'll learn some stuff too! Now to try some..!

Great idea!

It was either that or a number of other skills I've cultivated over the years. But those aren't as accessible or universal as eating. :)
