The Birth of the Meat Cake: Your One Way Ticket To Flavor Country
The inspiration for this latest food-child comes courtesy of an earlier post, dedicated to beer bread grilled cheese. Thus, it had to be done… we whipped out our best recession style cookware (note tiny-mini iron skillet) and our portable panini presses to play with, to accompany our strategies for next week’s Guactacular (you can meet us in real life there, but please don’t be creepy about it. Oh yeah, and don’t bother talking to us if you don’t plan on voting for us).
Sooo…we installed my last bottle of homebrew for this puppy, and I will say the bread came out a bit doughy. Hence the picture of it falling apart after I cut it…but I just slapped around those slices like a tortilla and threw them in that panini press and it all worked out just the same. I will say, I don’t think the end result would have been as successful without the porto-press.The addition of honey to the batter was a grand success. Yes, I used the word grand in the non-French sense. We also added some caramelized shallots and paprika-ed bacon. Then we ate it.
The end result was a pleasant sweet and savory treat. A word of warning, also extremely intense. One bite will probably change your heart rate and send you into a food frenzied panic. Proceed with caution.
