Dingleberry’s Recipe Roundup!


Miss Dingleberry – the class is all yours (but we’re watching from the back of the room!)

Hello Students…..Your beloved Miss D here and it’s time for us to

check out YOUR entries in the “CREATE A RECIPE FROM THIS GROSS PHOTO” contest!

First of all, thank you to ALL of you who entered.  We know it was a big fat disappointment when we cancelled Teaser this week but the Profs needed a day off because of their Mom and Dad being out of town so I was the lucky duck (or cook) who got to run my OWN contest.    It was a challenge right?    Not so easy to create a recipe from a rather GROSS looking photo of an unknown food item.   BUT, you were game.   Eight of you fabulous students of the School entered.

Tee Hee….this oughta be good!

OR scary…….!

We will share the recipes from those who entered FIRST – and assign them a NUMBER.    The Voting Poll will follow the recipes and just vote for your FAVORITE recipe – it can be that you choose it because it sounds the most delicious, most interesting, most disgusting, most impossible to eat, most – well – you get the idea.   You choose your FAVORITE no matter why.    THEN, tomorrow we will announce the WINNER.    The WINNER will be getting a special badge from our Professors……….


ENTRY #1 – Clowie’s “Bombe Surprise”

This is a suprisingly simple recipe.

Main Ingredients:

1 generous scoop of pond scum

1 portion of cat puke

1 ball of dung

Optional extras:

Dead slugs

Dead snails

Road kill

Rabbit poo

Part-eaten and discarded takeaway


Gather together your ingredients. For the dung ball you need to find a friendly dung beetle and persuade him to part with the ball of dung. He may be tempted to exchange it for some fresh dung!

Put the pond scum into a dish. If you have any of the optional extras, push those into the scum around the edge.

Place the portion of cat puke in the centre of the pond scum.

Gently push the dung ball into the cat puke.

Voila! You have made bombe surprise. Bon apetit!

ENTRY #2 – Kismet’s “Potato De Foul Grass”

1) Go outside and cut the grass (or in our case AstroTurf-the dish will taste the same).

2) Put the grass cuttings in a blender and add an equal amount of pond scum. Blend for four hours. Do step 3 concurrently.

3) In the middle of the plate put that thing that’s been in the back of your refrigerator for the last six months after nuking it in the microwave for four hours remove all signs of decay.

4) Put on a serving plate. Garnish it with a raw purple potato on one side of the  plate.

5) Serve with pride to your in-laws! Don’t waste gourmet food like this on Miss Dingleberry.

Would I eat it? I’m a bird and stick to sunflower seeds.

ENTRY #3 – Madi’s “Mock Congealed Eye of Newt Aspic”

2 jars of halved olives (the eyes)
1 jar of lime juice to make sure it is very bitter
2 envelop lime jello for color
1 cup warm water about 5 ice cubes
Directions combine the lime juice, jello and warm water
stir til dissolved.  Add ice cubes to start the chill.
Place mixture in the freezer for ~20 minutes or until it starts to congeal.
Remove from freeze now stir in the halve olives.  Pour mixture into a jello mold, refrigerate for 3 or 4 hours.
You can tell it is ready when you giggle it and the olives move about like eyeballs.  Turn out onto a bed of lettuce 
serve as a disgustingly delicious side dish or a main dish with mozzarella cheese ball tarts on the plate.
hints:  the lime juice and sweet jello give it the sweet and sour taste.
Bon Appetite 

ENTRY #4 –  Sage’s Fav Classic Military Canteen Meal: Chicken with Sorrel Sauce and Chocolate Pudding! (each individual item on the plate has a recipe!)

Ingredient No. 1: Chocolate pudding

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Let the cat drink half of the milk. Gradually add remaining milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil and stir for 2 minutes, but be unsatisfied with the consistency and boil for further 5 minutes still it’s really hard. Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vanilla (if you can). Spoon into individual serving dishes, preferably with an axe. Chill until serving.

Ingredient No. 2: SORREL SAUCE

  • 2-3 cup VERY heavy cream (originally, it’s 2/3 but misread it)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 pound sorrel leaves, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons vermouth, or chicken or vegetable stock
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  1. Chiffonade the sorrel by curling up a few leaves at a time and slicing them very thin. But become bored and slice them thick.
  2. Pour the cream in a small pot but do not bring it to a simmer, because doing this would prevent it from curdling when it hits all that acidic sorrel in a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in another small to medium pot, heat the butter over medium heat and add the sorrel. Cook the sorrel but forget to stir, until it melts – it will cook down a lot and turn Army green. Muse on till it is Castleton green. When it does, stir in the cream and bring the sauce to a bare simmer. It will be pretty thick, so you should to add the vermouth or stock to thin it out. But you have no stock, and you prefer drinking the vermouth. Add salt and white pepper to taste and serve.

Ingredient No. 3: A drumstick

Take a drumstick from the fridge and toss it in the middle of the sorrel sauce.

ENTRY#5 – Ellen’s Carb-Free Lasagna

My kitties have come up with a recipe for the 2nd photo- !
3 dead evil squirrels
squirrel’s blood
ricotta cheese-16 ounces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Drain blood from squirrels and save
shave fur off squirrels and skin them- you will use these skins in place of lasagna noodles
grind squirrel meat like hamburger and fry then mix ricotta cheese with it
Now layer the meat/cheese mix then skin then blood- repeat then bake for 45minutes- yummy.

ENTRY #6 – Janet’s “Asparagus Soup with Chicken, Sausage and Chocolate Pudding”

This is  the “Ultimate One-Dish Meal” (contains protein, veggies AND dessert all on one plate!)


One package chocolate pudding (prepared per package instructions)

One can asparagus spears

One large chicken breast

One packaged sausage (any variety)

Four cups chicken stock

One-quarter cup sesame seeds



Make chocolate pudding following package instructions. Place in freezer.Cook chicken using any conventional method, except fried.  Allow to cool.Pull apart with fork and fingers to make chucks and set aside.  In blender or food processor, puree asparagus.  Toast sesame seeds in oven just until tan…watch closely so not to burn them.    Slice sausage into one-inch pieces and brown in large skillet.  Add asparagus puree, chicken stock, sesame seeds and salt and pepper to taste.  Cover and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.  Add chicken and continue to cook uncovered until chicken is heated through.  While your soup is cooking, take partially frozen pudding from freezer and shape into large balls. Return to freezer.  When all items in soup are heated through, spoon into bowls, top with pudding ball and serve.    VOILA – THE ULTIMATE MEAL!
