Those of you that follow along on Instagram most likely saw some insta-story action of my trying to choke down some NyQuil Jell-O. Well, if you couldn’t tell from the headline thats whats going on with this blog post.
The nice thing about NyQuil Jell-O is that it’s as terrible as you’d fucking imagine it to be. Jell-O by itself is already trash and adding Americas favorite nighttime cocktail to it only makes it worse. Sure I could have done DayQuil or even some Robitussin but NyQuil just seemed like the appropriate over the counter heroin to mix in. Shout out Bill Cosby for the inspiration.
There aren’t many steps to making NyQuil Jell-O. You basically follow the instructions on the Jell-O box and sub the cold water for a blend of water & NyQuil.

The meatloaf sandwich is the official sandwich of sweaty under-tit.
There’s a fine line of people who do and do not eat meatloaf and you can usually draw that line with household income…or something. Basically what I’m trying to say is meatloaf is the filet mignon of trailer park cooking and we wouldn’t want it any other fucking way. Rich people don’t deserve to eat a dish as cultured and delicious as meatloaf.
Typically a meatloaf sandwich is made with leftover meatloaf…I don’t have time to be meatin’ and loafin’ around my fuckin kitchen just to make a leftover meatloaf sandwich.
For this weeks recipe I wanted to take pasta for a walk down Please Squat on My Face Boulevard. Some heat. Some meat. Some cheese. The holy trinity of get the fuck in my mouth.
UNOs Pizzeria & Grill offers up a rattlesnake pasta of their own. I’ve never had it but judging from the pictures I’ve seen I can only imagine it tasting the way a library card catalog smells.
I wanted to take their version and face-fuck it into oblivion. I wanted more meat. More cheese. More heat. I also wanted to serve it up as a bake instead of your classic pile of pasta on a plate.
The first step is to season the water you’ll be boiling your pasta in. You can do this with a variety of spices. I took it to a dickheaded level and seasoned my water with fucking hot sauce like a savage. You can cook the pasta ahead of time since most of our focus will be on building the legit as fuck sauce.
Cook your bacon in a large cast iron – or large oven safe skillet – on MED-HIGH heat. You’re going to want a big ‘ol fucker since this is a 1 dish fuck-fest. Once there bacon is cooked you’re going to cook your steak directly in the bacon grease like a fucking animal.
No you’re just looking to basically sear the steaks. You don’t want to completely cook them since they will be going into the oven. Cook the garlic in the now steak & bacon grease until your kitchen smells like two Italians fuckin’ in the back of an Olive Garden. Add your 4 TBL of butter and slowly mix in your 1/4 Cup of flour. Congratulations. You’re building a legit as fuck roux.
Once the roux has browned up a bit add 1 Cup of milk and 1 Cup half & half. Stir that shit until it’s thicker than the ugly kardashian. Add all of your cheeses and stir until melted.
Once the cheese is nice and melted its time to get everyone in the fucking pot. Stir until well blended, top with bacon & jalapeño and bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy, you posers.
After a lot of back and forth-ing with various quesadilla ideas I finally settled on quesadillas with a stick in them.
I was clusterfucked in my head between a deep fried quesadilla pizza (which I’ve already kind of done) quesadilla stuffed onion rings, or some sort of whacked out quesadilla ravioli.
I settled on quesadilla pops because I thought it would be chill to make a handheld food more….hand holdable? That and it also opens the door to a dipping potential. The problem with the current state of Quesadilla is that you have to peel it back to put salsa, sour cream and whatever the fuck else you want to put in the finished quesadilla. I realize you could just put the extra toppings on top of the quesadilla but that’s not how I fucking roll.
The first step is to make a thick as tits quesadilla. I found the best way to do this was in some sort of pie or springform pan that’s the same size as your tortillas.
Place a tortilla in the pan and top with some shredded cheese. Load your quesadilla blend on top. I typically gravitate towards poultry when making quesadillas. You could go a steak & cheese route, or maybe even some sort of pork and rice – I don’t know. I have no idea what I’m doing when I cook.
A little seasoned chicken, a ton of cheese, and some select veggies.
Place some more cheese on top of your blend. This will help hold the tortilla shell to the quesadilla blend. When all is said and done place some weight on top. Stick in the fridge for a few hours.
Remove the quesadilla from the pan and slice into 4 equal section.
Time to bread and fry. Coat with egg wash, bread crumbs, back in the egg wash and then fry. Server with various dipping sauces.
This week we’re taking the bacon weave to new heights. Not only are we going to make a pizza ‘crust’ out of bacon, we’re going to make two bacon pizza crusts, put a nice cheesy loaded scrambled egg blend (BECAUSE ITS 2018 AND MAC AND CHEESE IS OUT) between them and top that shit with some more breakfast suspects.
The first step is to make yourself a few bacon weaves. Its going to take about 2 1/2 lbs of bacon in total to knock this fucker out.
Now you can go one of two ways here. You can make 2 decent sized crusts for 1 decent sized breakfast pizza, or you can make four smaller crusts for four smaller pizzas. That decision is up to you.
Once you have your bacon weave crusts cooked all you have left to do is build. You could stuff the crusts with cheesy home fries, a blend of breakfast meats, maybe stick a big waffle in there. You have to be a thinker here. Don’t be a fucking generic Eric. Make something official.
What you’re seeing here are the side effects of long term marijuana use.
The idea for ketchup caviar comes from a from a few things. It comes from watching molecular gastronomy videos, getting high and staring at one of those water & oil hourglass things that you would sometimes get in your Christmas stocking as a child.
The process is simple. Use geletin to make a ketchup “jello” and drop beads of the ketchup jello hybrid into some cold vegetable oil.
My first attempt was a bit of a failure. I dropped the ketchup beads into a mason jar filled with cold cooking oil. Everything looked great until I went to strain the “caviar”. It ended up sticking together like one big clump. This is when I went back for a second attempt and dropped the beads into a baking dish filled with a thin layer of oil instead.
The second time around I also doubled down on geletin. Two packets of geletin per cup of ketchup.
Ketchup game: destroyed.
I will mention that once the ketchup warms up it starts to lose its form. I’m not sure if this could be solved with adding more jello or not, but eating a spoonful of these cold was a pretty strange experience.
