The Recipe Thread 2.0!


Recommended Posts

We're bringing it back! Post your recipes here and I'll catalog them on this forum. Will be posting what I can on here soon enough. Some recipes won't make it over because they are tough to read or too similar to something else or just not clear in preparation. Some won't make it over because they are basically drunken dorm food.

When I move into my new place I'm looking to make the Il Timpano from Big NIght. It's going to be a all day process. And I'll likely follow Binging with Babish's recipe. But it seems like such an amazing dish to try which for me seems a challenge I need to conquer.

Meatball Ingredients 

  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1/2 pound ground short rib
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound ground veal
  • 3 ounces torn Italian bread
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, plus more as needed
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 tablespoon Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces fatty pancetta, finely minced
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced oregano
  • 1/2 cup homemade veal demi glace (or chicken stock with 4 packets unflavored gelatin)
  • 3 tablespoons leaf lard

Garganelli Ingredients

  •  10 ounces tipo 00 flour (or all-purpose), plus more for dusting
  • 2 large eggs plus 4 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Timpano Ingredients

  • 15 ounces tipo 00 flour
  • 2 whole eggs plus 6 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound genoa salami, sliced into 1/2” rounds
  • 1/2 pound grated aged provolone
  • 1 pound low-moisture mozzarella, cut into 1” cubes
  • 12 hard-boiled eggs, sliced in half
  • 1 recipe Italian red sauce
  • 24 meatballs (see above)
  • 1 recipe garganelli (see above), par boiled until very al dente, tossed with enough sauce to prevent sticking
  • Whole nutmeg

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1 2/3 cups warm water

2 tablespoons margarine

1 tablespoon white sugar

2 teaspoons salt



Mix 1-1/2 cup flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, and yeast.

Heat water and butter to 120-130 degrees F.

Add water to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed on mixer.

Add 1/2 cup flour, beat at high speed 2 minutes.

Stir in more flour to make a stiff dough.

Knead 8-10 minutes.

Cover and let rise.

Punch down.

Cover; let rest 15 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 pieces; shape 3 pieces into smooth balls.

Poke a 1 inch hole in each.

Drop bagels into a large skillet with 1 inch water (simmering) with 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 teaspoons salt in the water.

Cook on medium low heat for 3 minutes, turn and cook 2 minutes; turn again, cook 1 minute more.

Drain on towels. Repeat for rest of dough.

Place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20-25 minutes.

Remove from sheets and cool.

If desired, before baking, mix 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon water, brush on bagels, and sprinkle with sesame, poppy, or caraway seeds.

Breakfast Burritos

(Courtesy MeandHarpua from the old forums)


3-4 potatoes (depending on size) chopped

1/2 Green pepper, diced

1/2 Onion, diced

Jalapenos to taste (if you want them at all)

Any other peppers or veggies you want (Broccoli perhaps?)

Bacon, Sausage, both. Or really any meat you want.

7-8 Eggs, scrambled


Whatever kind of cheese suits your fancy. I like them all.


This is my go-to breakfast recipe. Delicious, easy, and will make the ladies swoon.

Alright, so start by chopping the potatoes into little cubes. Throw some butter in a pan and throw the potatoes in. While the potatoes cook for a while, chop the onion, green pepper, jalapeno, and/or any other pepper/vegetables you want. After you're done, throw all vegetables in the pan with the potatoes. Cover and stir occasionally for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes look done. Obviously, salt and pepper throughout the process, maybe some garlic powder, Lawrys. Again, any seasonings you want, most will work.

Once the Potatoes and veggies are almost done, start up your bacon. Thawed sausage takes longer, so they should be started a little after you start the potatoes. Just use try to time the meat to be done when the potatoes are done. Once the meat of choice is done, chop it up and add it to the potato and veggie mix. Give that a good stir, and then get your eggs scrambled and into a pan. After egg scramblege, add those the mix and mix everything around. Add salsa to taste. I usually put in a lot. Probably about 1/3 of jar, maybe more. Add whatever kind of cheese you like liberally over the mixture. Mix everything together until you have a delicious looking jamboree of flavors.

This last step is crucial to making a good burrito: BUY AUTHENTIC BURRITO SHELLS! I don't know your local brand, but in Wisconsin, I buy La Preferida. They are perfect and will stretch. Anyways, add a liberal amount of the jamboree goodness to a burrito shell, wrap it up, and put it on a skillet, with the folded side down. Leave it on the skillet for about 2-3 minutes, or until brown. Then, flip it over, do the same thing, until brown.

Serve with sour cream or more salsa. And if you really have to, go ahead and use a fork, no one will think less of you. Smile

Lemon Butter Crepes

(Courtesy pmk from the original forums)

Combine and mix in a large bowl:

2 1/4 cups flour

pinch salt

1/4-1/2 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want the dough)

create a hole in the center of the flour/sugar mixture and crack two eggs and then mix.

combine 1 cup milk with 1/2 cup water and slowly fold into the batter.

refrigerate at least an hour, preferably overnight

add butter to a non-stick skillet and over medium high heat. Add 1/3 cup of the batter to the pan and swirl the pan off the range to distribute the batter into a thin circle. Flip after a minute or two. Add more butter to the pan between crepes in order to get a nice browning on one side of each crepe.

Fold completed crepes into triangles.

Melt 1 TBL butter and squeeze in the juice from 1/2 lemon.

Pour butter/lemon mixture between crepe layers and top the crepes with confectioner's sugar.

Homemade Tomato Soup

(Courtesy @The Gnat)


10 medium tomatoes



2 Green Peppers



Olive Oil

Salt (to flavor)

Pepper (to flavor)


Cut up tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and onion and place in frying pan with olive oil.

Saute until onions become transparent stirring from time to time to keep the green peppers from burning.

Put sauted vegetables, only part of it at a time, along with basil into blender or food processor and liquefy (or as close to as possible).

Put liquefied vegetables into a pot on stove over low heat and add two cups of milk. Add salt and pepper for flavor as need be.

Add milk as needed depending on how long you cook it for and how many people you need.

Then either strain to get any remaining large chunks out for a creamy tomato soup or don't strain for a thicker soup that will serve more.

Bucky's Roasted Nuts

1 lb Pecans (Walnuts or Almonds are good too)

3/4 C Sugar

1/4 C Brown Sugar

2 t Vanilla

1-2 Egg Whites

2 t Cinnamon

pinch of salt


Beat together the egg white and vanilla until frothy.

Combine the sugars, cinnamon, and salt.

Pour the nuts into the egg white mixture to coat them.

Then dumb the nuts into the sugar mixture and toss until evenly coated.

Bake them for about an hour in a 250 degree oven, stirring every 10 minutes or so.

Make sure you spray the pan with some Pam or else you'll have a really sticky pan.

pmk's Guacamole

Combine in a large bowl:

3-4 avacados

2 tomatoes diced

1 red onion minced

1 roasted pablano pepper* diced

1-2 lime juiced

salt to taste

pepper to taste

mash with a fork until at desired consistancy. Squeeze some extra lime on top of any leftovers to slow the avacado from browning in the fridge overnight.

*roasting a pepper this size is super easy. Just remove the grate from a gas bruner and turn the burner on medium. Set the pepper on the flame and let the skin char and rotate it every few minutes to get an even roast.
