What’s Your Most Sinful Dish Ever?

Posted by in Kitchen Talk

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Your Most Decadent Dish)

Okay, I know I’ve been trying to focus on healthy snacks and all, but who am I kidding? Don’t get me wrong—I love fruits and vegetables and hummus, and I’m more likely to reach for the water instead of some sugary drink. But the recipes that excite me the most are usually the naughty ones. The ones that make me want to rub my hands together, inwardly snickering and hatching plans to unleash cruel temptation on my more disciplined friends.

Yeah. I’m a real pal like that.

So today, I figured we should throw caution to the wind. Let’s hold nothing back. I’m not even going to ask you for your favorite indulgences. No, that won’t do. I want the ultimate entry on your list! Tell us:

What’s the most shamelessly sinful dish you’ve ever made—or eaten?

When I tried to come up with my answer to this question, it dawned on me that my top answers are all recipes I discovered right here in TK. And here’s a secret: I like leaving those same food photos on my huge monitor when visitors are around and there’s a chance they might walk past my desk. I get a kick out of watching them do a double take, barely disguising a gasp as they mutter, “What is that?”

Allow me to demonstrate.

Bacon and Brie Quiche. Ha. This once made a 200-pound grown man weak in the knees. Which was kinda dangerous, since he was trying to haul a huge compressor unit for our air conditioning system.

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake. Of course. It’s Nutella in cake form, frosted with even more Nutella. With mascarpone.

French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. You know you want one. (These aren’t really all that sinful. Unless you’re like me and use a ridiculous amount of additional butter and cheese.)

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes. Yeah. I’m so not going to apologize.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I have Tasty Kitchen to thank for some of the most evil dishes to come out of my kitchen. And that I have Tasty Kitchen to blame for some of the most evil dishes to come out of my kitchen.

Now it’s your turn! Time to ‘fess up. We all need an overboard moment now and then, right? (Please say yes.) So jump in, the water’s nice and chocolaty and sprinkled with bacon and cheese!

Hmmm, probably bacon cheddar mac and cheese with bread crumbs. Emphasis on the CHEESE. And BACON. Lots and lots of BACON. Did I mention cheese?

Now you are talking (well, about the food, not the heart attack)! LOL. I’ll be over right now!

@ Nanci (TK). Oh YUM! Tator tots are the number 1 best reason EVER for a food extruder to have been invented. I love tator tots and I can totally imagine a hybrid recipe of Texas Taters and Heart Attack Hash. Or maybe just leave the two dishes as they are and serve one as a main and the other as a side. For dessert we have could have that Chocolate Hazelnut Cake that Erica (TK) talked about and that bread pudding made with croissants and half & half that DebbieK talk about. We could eat it all right outside the doors to the Cleveland Clinic–you know, just in case we needed the best cardiac care in the country, which we would. But, hey, what a way to go!!!!

Wow, Terri that sounds right up my alley. Goodness! One of my favorites is a casserole that we call Texas Taters. Just a ton of tater tots in a 9×12 dish covered with a sauce that consists of cream of chicken soup, lots of cheese, sour cream, some butter and some chives. Then baked until melted and gooey. Making me hungry!

Heart Attack Hash. Potatoes, 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of sausage, 1 pound of kielbasa, onions and 1 1/2-2 pounds of cheese. We used to make it in a Dutch oven when we went camping. It tasted great after a day of hiking.
