Everyone needs a few low cost, low effort recipes for cases of extreme emergency. This blog provides enough “bachelor” meals to last a life time of apathetic Saturdays. Having survived a number of housemates – and having had to occasionally resort to whipping up postmodern culinary masterpiece (the Blue Poles of the kitchen).
I was going to post a couple of my recent experimental meals for your enjoyment – because like in art (including music) experimental cooking leads to innovation for those of you who don’t share the creative bent.
So here are my 3 current favourites – note 2 are fairly similar in basic design principals.
Baked Bean Ravioli Surprise
A dish from the Lorimer school of cheffery – so named because chef’s were surprised and delighted when the dish proved edible – and even eatable – edible of course only implying that it will not do you harm.
1 500 gram tin of Baked Beans
1 500 gram packet of Ravioli
Prepare a saucepan full of boiling water
Stir until soft
Warm baked beans in second saucepan
Drain water from ravioli
mix baked beans and ravioli
Delightful blend of flavouring – can be prepared successfully without the nutella. Like a toasted marshmallow – with a protective breadlike cover.
4 slices white bread
a handful of marshmallows
nutella – or hazelnut spread substitute
Liberally spread bread slices with hazelnut spread
Slice marshmallows and add to bread
Add slices of bread to toasted sandwich maker
heat – watch carefully as sandwiches have a tendency to leak. Marhsmallow is a bugger to clean off the sandwich toaster.
There’s nothing sandy about this concoction – a guaranteed winner that will whet your appetite and delight your taste buds.
2 Slices of bread
1 Mars Bar
Slice Mars Bar
Place on Bread evenly
Toast in toasted sandwich maker
If you have any great (bad) recipes – feel free to add them. Or even suggest terrible alternatives to my three dishes. With the Christmas Season approaching these are surefire ways to successfully entertain guests – or even for a night alone in front of the TV.
