White Trash Delicacies

no, no....this is my favorite:;

Lil' Smokies (cocktail-sized smoked sausages) cooked in a crockpot in a mixture of grape jelly and chili sauce for 6 to 8 hours.

If you want to get gourmet-crazy, you use blackberry jam with seeds instead of grape jelly.

Has anyone ever actually seen a bandit making out?

Uh-huh: just as I thought. Stereotyping.

From National Lampoon's Vacation...

"I don't know why they call this stuff Hamburger Helper. It works just fine by itself."

"Real tomato ketchup, Eddie?"

"Nothing but the best!"

Okay, folks. How many people have actually prepared or eaten the things they've posted about here?

My family of five shared one Cowboy Sandwich (being, in this case, the bottom half of the hamburger bun with the spam/velveeta mixture spread on top), and there were leftovers. Peter and Heidi were young enough that they could go "gaak" and spit (hork) the stuff out on the floor and it didn't seem too uncouth. Diana, Paul and I quietly swallowed (gagged) and then brushed our teeth.

Onto the congealed salad topic, somewhere in this place, I have a circa 1963 Jello grocery store pamphlet-style cookbook. I recall seeing recipes that called for celery jello. Celery Jello?????

Celery jello? I wasnt aware of avant garde white trash cuisine. One may go all the way with a frito chili pie sno cone.

And then there would be the whole world of State Fair food-on-a-stick. I vote for the deep-fried dill pickle (battered, of course) on a stick, as served (but not tasted) at the MN State Fair last summer.

Out of the blue, a few minutes ago:

Paul: "My boss's wife offered to share a recipe featuring picante sauce and grape jelly.

Susan's ears perk up. "So, what did she do with these two ingredients?"

Paul: "I declined the offer.""

I'm intrigued...

I was recently in Minnesota and after seeing A Cook's Tour in the Twin Cities, all I wanted to see in the Mall of America was the MN State Fair restaurant in the food court so I could see the deep fried pickle, the deep fried cheese curds, the deep fried fish on a stick and most importantly of all, the deep fried cheese cake on a stick.

I am very irritated to report that that restaurant is no more.

I put up with the inanity of America's largest mall for naught. :angry:

Baked beans - the kind you doctor up with bacon and catsup and vinegar and brown sugar and dash of yeller mustard.

Hey! Where'd ya git my Mom's recipe?!?!?!

Cowboy sandwiches.  Grind spam and velveeta, smear on squishy white bread buns, broil open faced.

Whoa! That's the first recipe on this thread that thoroughly grossed me out. Damn! That sounds nasty! :laugh::laugh:

GROWWWWWLLLLL!!

Peg Bracken's "I hate to cook book"

..." Fancy ingredients are replaced by cans of condensed soup, baked beans, and crushed corn flakes"...

Sweep Steak

2-3 lbs. of a cheap roast, or blade steak

1 package onion soup mix

Put the meat on a big sheet of aluminum foil. Sprinkle the soup mix on top & fold the foil, airtight, around it. Put in a baking pan & bake at 300 degrees F. for 3 hours (or 200 degrees F. for 9 hours; it doesn't matter). If desired, open it up an hour or so before it's done & surround it with potatoes & carrots.

Also, you can pour 1 can of undiluted condensed mushroom soup on over the onion soup mix. Makes a nice gravy.

What a great thread!

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time.

So, Klink, whacha leaning towards?

I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.
