The Recipe Thread


Recommended Posts

no idea if this exists already

Anyways! Redeemer recently promised us a recipe thread, but since she is filled with lies and scorpions, it falls to me to nobly stand in surety for her deceptive promises. Don't think your Gaelic charms will get you out of this one, Red. I'm onto you.

So anyways! Post recipes here plz. Also, they'd better be good, or all the king's horses and all the king's men won't be able to put you back together again. Here I will start.

Spaghetti Casserole


1 package spaghetti

1 pound bulk Italian sausage, spiciness of your choice

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cans spaghetti sauce

1 small package shredded mozzarella cheese (or whatever kind you want, really; the grocery store sells a mix called "Italian," of mozzarella, asiago, Monterrey Jack I think, and probably something else)


-Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.

-Crumble sausage into 1 1/2-quart casserole bowl, stir in onion, cook covered on 100% power in microwave 6 to 8 minutes or until no pink remains. Drain off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce.

-Put half of the spaghetti in big dish (recipe says 10x6x2-inch). Layer with half of the sausage/sauce mix. Repeat layers. Cover with vented microwave-safe plastic wrap. Cook on high 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Cook, uncovered, on high, 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Usually it all takes me about forty-five minutes to cook, start to finish. I usually use a couple tablespoons of olive oil in the water to keep the spaghetti from sticking together. You can get olive oil for relatively cheap at Trader Joe's, at least where I live, but if it's expensive you might not want to bother with that. I usually throw some garlic powder, oregano, and basil into the spaghetti sauce, and chopped up green onions (also known as scallions) into the sauce/sausage mixture. And recently I've apparently developed a fetish for putting parsley flakes on everything I cook that can even remotely be passed off as Italian. None of which is strictly necessary, but if you're making this for a date or something, parsley flakes on their food might impress them enough to dress up in Princess Leia's Jabba the Hutt slave bikini and make real all your sexy Return of the Jedi fantasies, or whatever it is you people do when you're not on the forum. So there's that.

Hey! This was something I was to make! You thunder thief! XD

LIES AND SCORPIONS? *explodes* Do you know how upside down my life has been recently? It only just got better within the past 24 hours! Cut me some slack. ;_;

I am now suffering from an extreme case of butthurt. I'll get you Uno, if it's the last thing I do! >:3

oh, what's that, Red? is that your thunder? your thunder, you say?


mien naow

oh hey another recipe

Grilled Breakfast Sandvich. With this sandvich, you too can be credit to team without skipping the most important meal of the day!


2 pieces of bread

1-3 eggs

some margarine, or real butter if you're hardcore

1 slice of cheese

other stuff you may want: a sausage patty, a strip or two of bacon, some ham (I prefer the super-thin-sliced deli ham), a hash brown patty, the spleen of Santa Claus fried in the bitter tears of Cambodian sweatshop laborers, whatever

-Butter and grill your bread, a la grilled cheese.

-Cook the meat, hash brown, children, whatever.

-Scramble the eggs. The most I ever put on one sandwich was four and I felt like I'd swallowed a cinder block for most of the day, but if your disregard for your arterial health is more flagrant than mine, you can put more eggs on your sandwich. Like, I'm not gonna stop you, but don't blame me if you keel over in the middle of the day.

-Put it all together. Pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the cheese.

-Remember to Spy-check before eating.

This thing is distinctly unhealthy, but we don't care about that because we are MEN and when cholesterol clogs our arteries, we just step right up to it and tell it to get the hell out of the way because we got blood to pump and we ain't stoppin' for no bitch-ass cholesterol.

Ah haaaaa, un sujet sur la gastronomie! Mes papilles en frétillent rien qu'à l'idée! \o/


Oups, sorry! You what's like, a french hearing about cooking... ;)

Okay, I'll stay in the domain of pasta for this one.

Pasta for hard-workers in the cold weather outside (a.k.a Pasta à la Psygonis)

Ingredients (for 4 hungry hard-workers!):

500g of pasta, whatever type works, from spaghetti to fusilli or linguine, penne gives a good sauce experience though. (N is the number of guests)

Half a can of cooking sour cream (25~35%)

A handful or two of shredded cheese (whatever mild cheese, it's for the texture it gives, not the taste)

250g of ham

Half a can of peas

An onion


- Slice thin lanes from the onion and cut the ham in thick dices

- Cook your pasta in your frying pan (I know, it's weird, but it gives better results). Basically, put the water in the pan and make it boil. The water level must be enough for the pasta not to burn but low enough to evaporate in most part when the pasta's ready. All the way, you have to stir them so it doesn't burn. Halfway, add the peas to cook them along.

- Add the ham and onion in the pan and make these brown gently in a bit of butter (or oil).

- Halfway, begin to add a first coating of sour cream.

- Wait a bit and add the shredded cheese. When it is melted, pour some more sour cream to keep the mix fluid.

You're done when everything's cooked in the pan. The texture of the sauce (browned sour cream) must me syrup-like.

Serve while the sauce is still fluid, eventually add a pinch of shredded cheese on top (use a good one this time!) to add taste.

This is for (very) hungry persons, you can go comatose on your couch after this, enjoying a rather pleasant digestive nap! :3
