    Have you named a homemade recipe?

    What's it called?

    I created the "Mexcellent Cheeseburger" that wasn't considered for a $50k
    burger competition. Too easily outclassing the competition, is my
    assumption!

    You?

    One of my sons, given the task of making dinner, made a meatloaf,
    tweaked the ingredients, and called it the "Barbecue Bacon Meat Brick".

    It was actually pretty tasty.

    My mom made something she named Julie's casserole. I don't remember what
    was in it but apparently I loved it. She didn't write down the recipe
    because she thought she would remember it. Then she forgot it. And
    apparently I forgot it too.

    Often when I create something I try to recreate what I ate elsewhere. So it
    just gets the name of whatever that was.

    2. Pecan Nut Balls
    3. Chocolate Covered Cherries

    probably some others, but these I/we invented, in some form or another.

    Puppy Chow Hash. Discussed thoroughly here beginning Aug 1st on the Canned

    There is a dessert called Puppy Chow. It's a cereal such as Rice Chex,
    chocolate chips, peanut butter, marshmallows and I think butter. Too sweet
    for me.

    "Pizza d'uovo" (egg pizza). Beat 2-3 eggs in a cup with a pinch of salt and
    pour them in a hot skillet with few EVO oil, cover well with the lid and
    after some seconds reduce the heat to low. Wait for some cooking to happen
    on the top and then remove the lid, put 2 thin slices of gruyere (or similar
    cheese), spread 2-3 tablespoons of unspiced tomato preserve and a nice
    fistful of grated aged cheese and close the lid again. Obviously my usual
    aged cheese is parmigiano reggiano, but many will work; I once used romano
    and it was very good indeed. Wait for a minute or two for the cheese to
    melt.
    It's mandatory to eat this dish while watching japanese cartoons* on TV, as
    I did when I used to cook this dish, at about 11 years of age.

    * among the jap cartoons I used to watch those days were Doraemon, Lamu' the
    girl from space (Urusei Yatsura), Ken il Guerriero (Hokuto no Ken), Hello
    Spank (Ohayo! Supanku) and many more I don't recall now. What a bunch of
    crazy characters those were

    ViLco,

    Heh heh heh.

    I don't know the cartoon genre you mention.

    I spend much of my time here:
    http://oi55.tinypic.com/30a5lbt.jpg
    (old picture)

    The rest of the kitchen is behind the camera's viewpoint.

    I forgot my "Green Death," a tuna, avocado, celery, jalapeno salad
    concoction some might consider a man-made tradegy. allrecipes.com refused
    to enter it, probably to protect their viewers?

    Best,

    Julie,

    I've done exactly that too!

    There's a French/Thai (???) restaurant in town that made the best Thai
    chicken satay. I shouldn't really say that, as it's the only Thai chicken
    satay I ever had.

    I went about hunting the recipe websites and came across a recipe that
    equalled the restaurant's recipe, that I've used ever since.

    I didn't give it a name like "Andy's Famous Thai Chicken Satay Things."

    Buttlo Beans

    Because it was a dish I made with leftover pork butt and red beans,
    and wrote on the recipe card "Butt l/o beans".

    Heart Attack Chicken

    (not for food purists or the faint of heart)

    approx 3- 4 pounds of chicken (I prefer boneless thighs)

    1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
    1 Can Cream of Chicken soup
    1 small can mushroom slices ( or pieces)
    1 cup mayo
    1 cup shredded cheese

    Pepper and seasonings to taste.... some paprika, cayenne, etc.

    Mix everything together into one amorphous, gloppy mess, put in a pan
    and bake covered until the chicken is done... about 350 degrees, usually
    about an hour to 90 minutes. Take the cover off the last 20 minutes or
    so to brown the top.

    And if that wasn't enough... serve over noodles.... with a side of
    Lipitor. <vbg>

    Green death sounds interesting. Unfotunately avocados are prohibitively
    expensive this year.

    I'd roll it up in a sheet of nori and munch out.

    Me too, but not with great names. I call my fish curry jes that. My
    own recipe for baked beans is nb's baked beans. Not too clever. My
    only original name goes to my very own breakfast dish, Eggs Garp,
    named after what they look like, garp being my childhood term for
    vomit. OTOH, unless it's all guys, I seldom tell my guests the
    reasoning behind the name. They all love the dish, so why spoil it.

    George L,

    After reading your recipe name, it could be taken a different way...

    "What happen when you throw a chicken into the ring?"

    Yeah, I know. Keep my day job!

    Anyway, I'd eat that! Saved your recipe. Thanks!

    Yes, "Tamale Quiche". I developed this about 35 years ago.
    You make a cornmeal crust (the crumbly, press in the pie pan
    type - I haven't made it in a while so I don't recall the
    exact ingredients - good thing it's written down in my recipe
    box). Then you layer the fillings - cooked, crumbled sausage
    or bacon, corn, diced green chiles, shredded cheddar cheese -
    and pour over an egg and milk mixture and bake. Boy, I really
    am getting senile. I'm not sure I got all the ingredients
    right. Now I'm hungry for it so I'm going to dig out the
    recipe and make some. I used to make it frequently but I haven't
    made it in more than 15 years now. It's terrible how you get
    seduced by new recipes and tend to let the old standards fall
    by the wayside. Sigh.

    Then about 20 years ago I invented a dish which I named "Pasta Fifth
    Avenue". That was where I lived at the time. It was egg noodles with
    a rich cream sauce and poppy seeds. It was one of the recipes
    I sent in to WQED for their cookbook "P is for Pasta". It got
    put in the book!

    I also sent them a recipe I created named "Red, White, and Green
    Ravioli" which I make with a spinach pasta (green) and a chicken
    filling (white) with a tomato and red pepper sauce (red). That one
    was also included in the cookbook. I'm famous! ;-)
