Holy schnitzel. That does look good.

But I've got something better. Tex-Mex! And more Tex-Mex! And even more Tex-Mex!

You can't even really get those where I live.

Though, I'll have to check the local Wal-Mart to see if they have any just to be sure. I've always wanted to try a Mars Bar.

But by mentioning Fried food, you have opened a huge can of worms.

Look upon our works, ye mighty, and despair. When it comes to fried foods, the Texas State Fair wins. Period.

Yes, you read that right. Chicken Fried Bacon and Deep Fried Butter. You can feel your arteries clogging just by reading that page.

And let me tell you, that stuff is good.

This is amazing, as well. And I haven't had any since around Easter last year.


Edit: Also, how can there possibly be a place without Mars bars? And Mars bar vodka is awesome, too.

It's this disgusting (but so delicious) unhealthy mass of cheese, mayo, pimentos, and some spices. Serve on crackers or in a Pimento Cheese BLT. Smiley: nod

Alright, enough with the sweets! What you guys need is some stick-to-your-ribs food. So in the interest of keeping priesty bellies warm (and hopefully coaxing some cookie recipes fom certain posters here), I present you with my thirty minute biscuit and gravy breakfast.

... Awaken from a disturbing dream to a growling stomach. Hrmmm, cold cereal ain't gonna cut it today, needs me some victuals.

Bounce off several pieces of furniture on way to kitchen. Mindlessly start pot o' coffee.

Preheat oven to 450F (230C) for biscuits. (Whatever the package says is wrong, I haven't the time or inclination for reading in the morning.)

Assemble the gear: One big ol' pan for the sausage gravy, one baking sheet for the biscuits, one smaller pan for the roux. Tube of breakfast sausage, Cannister of biscuits, butter (or your favorite cooking fat), flour, chile powder, cayenne pepper, sugar, 4.5 cups (1l) milk (I have used heavy cream in the past, but that would require a trip to the market today, which ain't gonna happen.)

I haven't listed exact measurements for the various ingredients because some of them are for taste and will change according to yours while others are for the roux, which I will cover in a bit.

Coffee should be done by now, pour a cup, take a swig and a deep breath... here we go!

Toss big ol' pan and smaller pan on stove, turn up heat all the way for sausage pan, medium heat for smaller pan. Toss sausage in big ol' pan (remove packaging first.) I favor JB Rice medium, but any breakfast sausage will do. If the sausage was frozen, cover the pan to help it thaw. If not, smush up sausage in the pan and fry away. Keep smushing and turning sausage from time to time, the smaller the clumps of sausage the better. Toss biscuits in oven that should be heated up by now. Set timer. Oh crap, the sausage pan is too hot! Turn down heat to medium on sausage now to allow it to cook a bit slower. Once it is browned, remove excess fat and add the milk. Return heat to high. Add seasoning. I normally put in a teaspoon or two of sugar and chile powder, and just a smattering of cayenne pepper, but you can change these to taste. Allow the sausage pan to heat up to boiling, stirring as necessary while you start the next stage: The Roux

As any cook knows, you must combine both science and art to become skilled in the kitchen. Baking is a good example of the science part. Deviating from a recipe can result in a nuclear disaster that may require a call to haz-mat for removal (Baking Powder is not the same as Baking Soda!). One of the arts of cooking is preparing a roux. Even with exact measurements, a roux can fail depending on various issues. Much of the success of the roux depends on heat and time. So instead of giving you exact measurements and directions, I will walk through my roux prep, ymmv.

The thickness of your sausage gravy depends on how much flour is added. If you desire thinner or thicker gravy adjust both the amount of fat and flour.

Toss about 4 tb (1/4 cup, not sure of the metric equiv D:) of butter in the small pan. (Advanced move: Forgo butter and use sausage fat spooned from big ol' pan; However I do not recommend mixing fats to make roux!) If the pan is the right temperature, the butter should sizzle until melted. Adjust heat if needed, too hot and the fat will burn, too cold and the roux will not take proper shape. Here is the art part: you are going to add flour to the melted fat until you reach the proper consistency for the roux. It normally takes around half the amount of fat you have i.e. if you used 4 tb of butter, the roux should thicken with around 2 tb of flour. Add the flour gradually, melting it into the fat. It will thicken as you add more flour. You want the roux to reach a point that it still drips off the spoon (slowly) and not become a solid mass. If the coloring darkens too much, the heat is a bit high, a blonde roux is what we are going for here.

Once your roux is in shape, blend it into the sausage pan. The milk needs be hot enough to melt the roux or you will have lumpy gravy (this is bad!). Maintain heat while occasionally stirring. Sauce will thicken with time.

Biscuits should be done by now. As the gravy thickens, this is a good time to fry a couple eggs. If you time it right, all are ready at the same time.

Open biscuits on plate. Slather with generous amount of sausage gravy. Slide eggs on top...
Now go fill that belly!

Speaking for myself, I actually flipped through my recipe book the other day (computerized, obviously) and I don't really have anything that isn't someone else's, a cookbook or my trusty Cooking Light or my MIL's deep dark family secret. If I make something up myself, I don't write it down. This is why my penne with vodka sauce is never the same twice. I should really kick this habit before I die and my food dies with me and then my daughter can't make fudge at Christmas.

Don't mess with butter or eggs but everything else is pretty much negotiable. And the teaspoon of vanilla most recipes call for just isn't enough.

This. I made meatball soup today and every time I make it, I modify it slightly. For example, it's a million times better with malt vinegar and loads of sugar. It really is. Today, I added tea, which made it even more better.

Also, celeriac > celery. Pity you can't often get it 'round these parts.

I believe its my time to enter this thread. As a Scot, I can tell you, that Haggis. Is. Amazing.I can see why people don't like it though. Then again, I'm the one that originally tried black pudding because it used to be made with the blood of the English, now its some crappy blood substitute, which I refuse to eat, so I get it from a butchers, where I (believe) its made with sheep blood.

Also, let me introduce you to the heart attack on a plate.

Again with the deep-fried mars bar. I have got to see if I can find any locally.

And I still stand by the Deep Fried Peaches and Cream. Next summer when the peaches are in season I'm going to have to make some. Assuming of course I can track down a recipe.

Gosh darn you, overly creative food makers and your tightly-guarded secrets!

We never learned this in housekeeping school in Germany.

Also, Woodruff flavoured anything is amazing. And Mozzarella with Lea&Perrins.

I don't trust Marmite, though. It sounds odd. I don't think I want to try it.


Also, if all else fails, I will move to Edinburgh. Amsterdam, Dublin, Southampton and Cardiff are higher up my list, though. Although with Soton I think, I don't want to live in the same county in England for more than half a decade. That is just lame. ****, living in one country for that long is boring enough.

I am ranting. Meh.

I really should pay more attention, it probably doesn't help that i was tanking ToGC(and failing) while posting that.

I can't suggest a better place, It's an amazing city, if you've never been, even though it seems like we're whoring our tourist trade, if you go to the bits that arent touristy, it's awesome, and if you move there your only an hour on the train away from glasgow, which is my favourite city, I wish I lived there(mostly because thats where the awesome metal gigs are and I don't like traveling for hours)

But if I had to pick a country to live in forever, I'd pick Norway, or Finland

People from Amsterdam tell me the same of their city.

It's just that I feel like I was a gipsy in a past life, and I can't stand the thought of living in the same country for a long time. I've never been farther north in Britain than York, but that still seemed pretty British and while I <3 the British, I'd rather move to a different place before I start hating you guys. Therefore, Ireland and the Netherlands are actually higher up my list. Maybe I'll return some day.

Yeah, I kinda see what you mean. Some part of me thinks that I should get out now, while I still can, but I don't have anywhere to go that really appeals to me (my only option is Canada because my dad just got a job there). But I love this country, I think. If you haven't been to Scotland, and want to visit, I don't suggest Glasgow, at all. Knife crime is way too high there for me to recommend it to anyone. I suggest Edinburgh, every person I've ever met there was friendly, and you don't get too much hassle from random people. But I think I'm being forced to move out to Canada once I've finished my college course(yay science!).

I plan on travelling most of Europe one day, probably sticking to the cold countries, and hopefully during Wacken festival so i can stop off there, which would be awesome.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, I love the UK. More than any country I've lived in so far - because the two other countries I've lived in, I experienced for so long that I got annoyed at all the little flaws far too much. I'd still enjoy visiting them, especially the United States (it's not all Jackson County, FL, after all), but I wouldn't want to live there again. I plan on staying mostly in Europe (because no visa requirements are a huge bonus), at least till I've finished my studies, and anything south of France is definitely too hot for me, too.

I also love languages, so non-English speaking countries are nice for learning new ones. And France is scary. So the best options I have for Uni (after looking at study programmes all over the continent) are both in Amsterdam. So the Priest Forum Dutch People are preparing me for that now.

I think a large part is that I've never really had a home, though. I mean, I did live where my mother happened to live till 2004, but it didn't feel like a true home at all and I've spent my free time and money on travelling all over the place on my own since I was 13.

Oh, also, I think I'll visit Scotland at some point but probably not while I actually live in Britain. It's that thing about not being a tourist in your own country, and for now, the UK is my own country. Before I moved here, I spent lots of time travelling the country, I just never really had the time and money to go all the way from my base of operations (Hampshire) all the way up north.

Also, I do not mind places with high crime rates. Love Nottingham. Nonetheless, Edinburgh sounds way lovelier than Glasgow.
