The recipe thread

Postby stumpytrunks » Mon Jan 24, 2011 10:09 am

As cyclists there is one thing we know how to do...eat! I find I get stuck in a bit of a rut cooking the same stuff over and over and figured a few of you might be the same. Considering how wide of a demographic we've got, not only in the USA, but the world, I figured it would be an interesting idea for people to post a recipe or two.

One of my favourites is flat roast chicken. By cutting the backbone and flattening the chicken it cuts cooking time drastically. As they say on the infomercials "a nutritious meal in minutes!" http://today.ninemsn.com.au/foodandwine ... ed-chicken

putting the oil, salt and pepper on before the other ingredients makes it better too, as you can really rub them in and get some more flavour.

I hate to say it but I am the worst eater in the world in terms of variety. I never got over vegetables as a kid, so I mostly just eat variations on pasta and chicken/bacon/turkey....My sister has a great cookbook though from the Australian Institute of Sport for her rowing, I'll try and get the name.

I'm a big fan of Venison, which I hadn't realised until going on holiday that it's extremely popular in New Zealand as well as over here. However, one of my favourite all time snacks is Canarian potatoes.

I'm guessing that this is for heathy cycling recipes...none of which I usually make. If someone wants a few of my all time favorites (loaded in calories, carbs, and fat) then I'll provide a link or two.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. They do them around here as well, in fact I'm not convinced they originated in Scotland as wiki states :?

Slisk, high carb, high calorie I love. Never been a fan of fat though :|

Just for the record, I wasn't intentionally being healthy with the Venison, although it is supposed to be a very lean meat. However, Canarian potatoes are VERY high in salt, not good at all :twisted:

I bet that would go great with three fingers of The Macallan.

How did you know that I was thinking Cajun food? I actually believe that a deep fried turducken might be lower in fat and calories then the following recipe, however, at my annual Dhahran Hills Coonass Kitchen Classic party (Feb. 17 is the 4th one) this recipe gets more compiments than any other. Enjoy!

A friend of mine from Aberdeen has spoken of these mythical fried delights I think Snickers was mentioned as well :)

Yes, you'd be right, snickers is another one although they were deep fried 'marathons' in their time. It's going back a bit, but I'm sure they had deep fried twix as well. A chippy around 10 mins away from me used to do them. I have feeling that they still do but haven't been there for a while.

Tbh, the worst food I've ever tried was corn dogs. I know they're popular in the US, but I think they're awful!

What! No corn dogs for you? Try it with mustard.
