Wow, I’m thinking I need to meet Jessie Oleson Moore and shake her hand. She made pretzels that were filled with chocolate and peanut butter for a baking contest. She used a recipe by Elizabeth Bennet, and she made the pretzels using canned breadstick dough. The filling was made using a combination of peanut butter, cocoa, egg yolk and whipping cream. Magnificent.

Whoopie pies are typically sweet, but did you know that you can also make a savory version, as well? The Vulgar Chef came up with a cheesy twist on the classic dessert with his new Mac And Cheese Whoopie pie.

Interestingly, the chef had a fairly unique reasoning for coming up with this dish: He casually flipped through the Thug Kitchen Cookbook, didn’t care for the healthy alternative recipes he came across, and decided to make a “completely filthy” dish as a form of catharsis. So, he made pie using macaroni and cheese (those were the buns) and the filling was made from Easy Cheese canned-cheese. Yum?

Bacon Pizza Burrito

For years, the idea of a bacon wrapped pizza burrito has been categorized as science fiction at best and madness at worst! But a new age is here, readers. The folks at Oh Bite It! have delivered unto us a recipe for just such a concoction.

Unravel the mystery at Oh Bite It.

Did you know that Luxembourg, a small landlocked country in Europe, has a Pizza Hut? I guess American fast food is really everywhere these days. What’s more, their Pizza Hut recently introduced a new Metti Crust Pizza. It features a Cheesy Bites-style crust, and the individual bites are filled with a local type of sausage called “mettwurst” instead of cheese. The pizza features two local culinary specialities—”traditional mettwurst and authentic Luxembourg mustard”—and Pizza Hut’s attempt at utilizing local sausage in a stuffed crust is apparently a first for the large chain.

pizzadilla

A cast iron skillet is a useful tool to have in your kitchen arsenal (bonus: it doubles as a weapon). When you’re not using it to bash heads, consider whipping up a pizzadilla. J. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats was inspired by a Redditor to throw a tortilla in the cast iron, add on sauce and cheese, and put a second tortilla on the top. He finished off the pizzadilla by cooking both sides and then adding toppings and sticking it under a broiler. Yum.

cheeseburger stuffed in a donut

Residents of Philadelphia: please go to PYT Burger so I can live vicariously through you. The burger joint’s menu looks mouthwatering, but one creation in particular has caught the attention of my stomach. Meet the D’oh Nut burger. It’s a glazed donut bun stuffed with a beef patty and american cheese. The whole thing is topped with bacon. Yowza.

BigMacnCheese1

Why eat a Big Mac with bread buns when you can make a version with macaroni and cheese buns? Dude Foods was inspired by a reader to make a macaroni and cheese Big Mac so he got the sandwich from McDonald’s, got rid of the buns, and created this. While it makes the sandwich difficult to eat, I have to admit it does look like grade A comfort food.

Yes, we all know that Nick from Dude Foods loves bacon. If the man had a Game of Thrones style family sigil, I guarantee that bacon (along with the words “Never stop frying”) would be up there. But I will admit that I was a bit surprised that Nick went so far as to create S’mores Bacon in his most recent post. I mean, marshmallow and bacon? Sounds nuts, but after looking at the pictures, it does look rather tasty. Basically, Nick cooked up some bacon and spread melted marshmallows over each strip. Then he sprinkled graham crackers on and tossed everything in the oven. Oh, and he made Hershey’s chocolate dipping sauce too. Yum!

snickers-donut-bar

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.
