Ever look at a recipe with equal amounts of skepticism and intrigue? Your initial reaction is that the results of the recipe can’t possibly be any good yet you’re drawn to it and just have to give it a try? Seems that is the course I’ve been on lately and the results have been tasty.
Flank steak, goat cheese, dried mango, and mint leaf. I was very skeptical at first glance but the flavors worked and made a great one-bite appetizer.
Roasted grapes? These did not sounds good to me at all when I first saw them, I skipped right by it. But I kept running across them (here, here, and here) so I finally gave in. I wasn’t blown away but they were good on top of a warmed brie.
OK and then there was this one, omelet in a bag. Sounds gross right? You put all the ingredients in a seal-able bag and boil it in water about 14 minutes to cook. Not sounding any better I know. Gotta say it was flippin’ delicious and a great way to serve breakfast to a crowd. The eggs cook perfectly!
Though I have to say the ultimate in gross sounding recipes that are actually pretty darn good is ground bologna. My husband’s family introduced me to this, it is their go-to party food. Though I have never actually made this myself.
OK, but here is one recipe that I am not sure I can be convinced to make…
That is one genius writer on 30 Rock! And I will say I was almost convinced by the end of the this video showing the recipe in action Buffalo Chicken Shake. What do you think?
