Please tell me more about the Bacon Mac & Cheese potato chips. I’ve never seen such glory. Are they magical?

first I will say, while I love potatoes, chips are not a favorite way to consume them. The bacon mac & cheese chips were good but, I found them to be like nearly every cheesy potato chip except not cheesy enough ( I ate the entire bag though). I devoured the wasabi ginger kettle chips and I hope to devour more in the future. I gave the mango salsa chips to Murble because if I’m going to eat something that tastes like mango, I’d like it to be a mango. And for some reason the cappuccino chips didn’t make it to Iowa but, here was Murble’s report: “Jennifer, you don’t understand. They were so bad *I* couldn’t finish one chip. and that’s is saying a lot” she really really loves potato chips. and that’s the chip report.

Can you tell me about those chocolate caramel pretzel bites? Are they amazing? They sound fantastic. You’re fantastic.

they were good. I was in need of candy. salty and sweet. I doubt I’ll ever buy them, probably a miracle I didn’t pull a filling.

GOOD SNACKING TO YOU!

Okay. I’m sure this looks gross but the avocado rice is much more flavorful today and I love rice and eggs so I hope you can deal with it.

Apparently there is a magical place called Middlesborough where one can get a giant pizza-sized breaded chicken cutlet topped with béchamel-type sauce and massive, massive amounts of cheese. This food of the gods is referred to as a “Parmo.”

Need now.

I guess I’m rewatching all of Alias. I’m in season 2 already without even trying.

the pizza waffles were a big hit.

I’ve been wanting to do this for a couple weeks. I HAD A VISION. I knew the key to my pizza waffle dream  was a twice cooked waffle.

I mixed each batch of pizza waffle batter separately because I like to keep my waffle options open. I mixed diced pepperoni and mozzarella into each batch.  (my dream involved sauteed mushrooms but that is for another day)

when the waffle is cooked I set it on a plate to cool for a second, then sliced with a serrated knife, sauced one interior side and added a bit more cheese and peperoni to the other side. sealed it back up and put it back in the waffle iron for one more cooking session.

I wasn’t sure. When I was making them I was thinking, “I think I’d rather go out for really good pizza.” but they were a huge hit. I had to make MANY pizza waffles. It takes three times as long as a regular waffle because you cook it twice and dick around in the middle. I really love dicking around though so I was having a pretty good time. After I was done filling orders I actually got to eat one and it was pretty good.

these were my test pizza waffles. I tried a pepperoni waffle with sauce on plate but my second test worked even better (picture to come)

Pizza waffles!!! What if any adjustments did you make to the batter?

I did not change my batter. I almost always use the “everyday waffle” recipe that I found in an ancient BHG cookbook. Like me, it can go both ways (sweet or savory) :

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs (separated)1 3/4 cups milk 1/2 cup cooking oilsift dry ingredients into large bowl
egg whites separated into small bowl (beat to stiff peaks)
egg yolks, milk, & oil mixed in third bowl.
pour egg yolk mixture into dry ingredients. stir.
fold in egg whites.
make waffles.


for my sauce I used the Butter Roasted Sauce that you posted, Cat, I just made extra and set it aside when I was prepping for spaghetti night earlier this week.
