My sister has made the most heart attack inducing,
cholesterol raising, trans-fatty incredible meal that she wanted to share with
the world the only way she knew how, with a guest post on TFIMB! She will take over for the rest of the post
and I may have some comments in red. (P.S. the recipe links seem to be diverting to the main Phantom page because they are advertizing a beach bbq. if you go to the bottem right of the page you can get to the main phantom page, then click restaurant recipes and it is the first one there.)
Since the 1st Celtics playoff game vs. the Atlanta Hawks, there has been a feeding frenzy at my house. One of our regular group, who has been there for every game, could easily take on Kobayashi in a hot dog eating contest. Since the beginning of the playoffs, he's been talking about the chili and cheese corn dog fries that he saw on Phantom Gourmet. My promise was that they would happen when we made it to the finals. Well, here we are, game 2: the C's vs. Lakers.
this is one of the easiest 3 layer dips, and it tastes really good too!
In honor of TFIMB I chose to do the prep on the coffee table (that and there was probably something good on TV)
I guess she had to make something to throw to the crowd to keep them at bay.
I learn every thing I know about broiling cheese from my brother
The original recipe didn't include chili or cheese but i mean come on, honestly? This is the ground beef onions, and garlic. The onions were softened before I added the ground beef.
I'm really excited.
Yikes! Good thing your hair is in the way. This is a family website! Kinda..
I'm sure my brother will tell you that making chili from scratch makes all the difference, but the biggest concern tonight are the corn dog fries. Plus Bush's Chili Magic is really good.
Making chili from scratch makes ALL the difference here. trust
Back to the coffee table. Hot dogs were cut in to fourths the long way.
And then in half
The dry ingredients
The best part about this was the 3 grown men crying from the onion in the other room. I need about 3 grated onions for the batter.
The wet batter was cream corn, 1 jalapeno, the grated onions, and butter milk. This is after I added the dry mix to it.
I decided to throw some onion rings in the mix. I'm sure you're thinking "if this has been going on since the beginning of the finals then they must have gained 10 pounds." You would be wrong, it's more like 15.
The batter should get nice and dark. I cut the dogs in half so there not quite long enough to curl up like it says in the recipe.
Their mouths are too full to smile.
Go C's take it in 6 in
It may be that the games start so late, but my guess is it's the 7 hot dogs he had at a bbq just before he came over to eat a huge plate of chili and cheese corn dogs that put him on the floor.
