Breakfast

‘Pancake Cereal’ Is The Perfect New Trend To Make These Days At Home Just A Little Bit Batter

Published

on

Finally, a way to have your pancake and eat it too.

Griddle me this: how can you improve on a breakfast favorite such as a fluffy stack of flapjacks? Easy, turn it into another breakfast favorite.

You won’t be finding “Pancake Cereal” boxed up alongside Silly Rabbits and Lucky Leprechauns, instead it’s something we can whip up right in our own kitchens. The concept is so simple I can’t believe it hasn’t been cooked up sooner…once again TikTok is the saving grace of quarantine. Heat up your griddle, squirt out enough batter to make dozens of quarter-sized pancakes, give those babies a little flip and voila, breakfast is ready. Fill your bowl with your petit pancakes and rather than pouring on the milk, add a generous pad of butter and some of your favorite syrup.

Ikea Released Their Secret Recipe For Their Famous Swedish Meatballs So You Can Make Them At Home

Published

on

*Some assembly required.

Imagine this film idea: an action hero begins his quest searching for the holy grail. He enters a multi-level labyrinth filled with twists and turns, aided only by some unintelligible hieroglyphics and his handy blue tote. The light beating down on him grows insufferable when suddenly he realizes he has lost all track of time. He has been wandering this maze for hours. Famished, he looks around for sustenance. He recognizes one of the symbols on the walls and follows its markings. He finds himself in an oasis and realizes that the journey itself was more gratifying than the holy grail could ever be. He orders himself the Swedish meatballs.

Clearly our action hero was a character we can all relate to, an Ikea shopper! Even more popular as the mega-retailer’s affordable prices and eye-catching designs, are the Swedish meatballs served in their cafeteria. The mouthwatering meatballs can be served up hot and fresh and eaten there or frozen for shoppers to take home to enjoy. Well with the coronavirus having most retailers shut down, Ikea decided to release their secret recipe for their fan-favorite food so we can all make the meatballs while stuck at home. The six step instructional guide details how to make not only the delectable meatballs but also the savory sauce they are drenched in. Six steps?! Quite possibly the easiest assembly guide Ikea has to offer.

Ikea Swedish Meatballs:

  • 500g beef mince
  • 250g pork mince
  • 1x finely chopped onion
  • 1x crushed garlic clove
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 1x egg
  • 5x tablespoons of whole milk
  • a generous dash of salt and pepper

Directions

  • Combine the beef and pork mince and mix together in a bowl using your fingers. Break up any lumps, before adding in the onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg and mixing together.
  • Add in the milk, along with salt and pepper and mix in.
  • Shape into small, round balls and place on a clean plate. When all of the mix is used up, cover the plate and store in the fridge for two hours.
  • After two hours, heat some oil on medium heat in a frying pan, and once hot, chuck in the meatballs.
  • Cook until browned.
  • Once browned, pop the meatballs in an ovenproof dish and cook through for a further 30 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees, or 160 degrees if you have a fan oven.

Cream sauce:

  • A dash of oil
  • 40g of butter
  • 40g of plain flour
  • 150ml of vegetable stock
  • 150ml of beef stock
  • 150ml of thick double cream
  • 2x teaspoons of soy sauce
  • 1x teaspoon of Dijon mustard

And here’s the method:

  • Melt the butter in a pan.
  • Once melted, whisk in 40g of plain flour and stir for two minutes.
  • Add in the 150ml of vegetable stock, along with the 150ml of beef stock.
  • Continue to stir, before adding in the thick double cream, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard.
  • Stir all the ingredients together, then bring to a simmer and allow it to simmer.
  • Once thickened, pour over your meatballs and enjoy!

This Guy’s Cooking Videos Are Like Funny, Little Action Movies

Published

on

Ever wondered what it would be like if Deadpool made a grilled cheese?

The video sharing app, TikTok, has everyone from juniors to geriatrics uploading hilarious content like whacky dance moves, viral challenges and so much more…seriously, it’s an absent-minded-scroller’s dream. Well one user, Joshua Weissman, has taken to the app to share his unique brand of cooking tutorials and let’s just say his humor is as sharp as his knife skills.

You know how Ina Garten has made a career out of using calm tones and hosting quiet dinner parties? Weissman’s videos are absolutely nothing like that. Instead, the TikTok chef has a way of editing his videos to make them feel like 60-second action movies, complete with a wise cracking hero. Our hero, Weissman in this case, speeds through the videos while quickly instructing fans how to make some pretty delicious foods. The humor explodes when his food falls to the back burner…pun totally intended…as Weissman drops kitchen props, shouts expletives or seizes an opportunity to zoom in on his glutes. Bet Ina never thought to do that…

A chill grilled cheese.

Sure, the videos are a bit goofy but his cooking talents are actually impressive! Weissman’s videos contrast what we normally think of cooking tutorials but that makes them much more memorable.
