The Ultimate Ghetto Snack
Have you ever looked in your refrigerator to see what was left and not have everything you need to make one of the recipes you might normally produce? One night I turned macaroni, tomato sauce, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese into a poor man’s lasagna mac n cheese bake thing and it was pretty good actually. I’m sure pigs in a blanket came from a similar situation where someone had Pillsbury biscuit dough and hotdogs kicking around. With white break, an apple some butter, sugar and a Panini press you can make a pretty decent apple turnover (albeit without the flaky crust).
Then today I went and had lunch at a “local downtown eatery” that has the best menu item that started out as a ghetto snack… The owner told me that one night at 3am him and his wife scoured the fridge for something to eat. They found Kraft Mac N Cheese, some leftover buffalo chicken strips and some bacon. From humble beginnings came one of my favorite dishes… The Red Rooster. What started out as a ghetto snack that is now one of your favorite dishes?
