Who can resist the flavors of meat, pickles, and cheese all wrapped up into one bite-sized tongue-gasm? Sure, you could eat a pickle by itself, or shove a piece of meat directly down your throat, but if you’re looking to impress yourself, your friends, or lover(s) then why not take one extra step and make these delicious treats? They are a party pleaser, whether that’s a party for one, a Big Game party, or an intimate evening at home binge-watching your favorite show with your romantic interest.
Meat Wrapped Cream Stuffed Pickles Recipe
What You Need:
12 slices of your favorite meat (I used pastrami)
5 oz blue cheese crumbles
8 oz spreadable cream cheese
12 dill pickle spears
What You Do:
Mix the blue cheese and cream cheese either in a bowl or a food processor
Place meat slices flat on a work surface, spread with the cream mixture.
Place one pickle about an inch in on the meat, then roll it up.
You can refrigerate at this point for easier cutting or go ahead and cut into bite size slices. I discovered it was easier to cut both ends first and then work toward center.
Arrange on platter if serving company or shove directly in mouth if you’re enjoying your own company. These are actually really filling so let me know how many you can eat at once. (My record is 8.)
Char your tender eggplant and put in it in a blender!
This deliciously smooth soup will not only warm your soul but will help you overcome any negative energy from big dicks in your life.
Have you or someone you know been acting like a dick lately? Well, it’s time to get out the frustration by completely demolishing an eggplant in a sort of symbolic representation of what could happen if you (or someone you know) become too big of a dick.
Big Dick Energy is way different than being a big dick. For example, BDE is all about confidence, assertiveness, compassion, whereas being a big dick is typically more about being an aggressive ego-maniac fuck boy–no body wants to be around that.
Feed your soul and your mouth-hole with this charred eggplant soup and release anything (or anyone) that’s no longer serving you.
Don’t Be a Dick Charred Eggplant Soup Recipe
What you Need:
1 medium sized onion-diced
6 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt + Pepper + Cayenne (to taste)
32 ounces of vegetable (or chicken) stock
Juice of half a lemon
What You Do:
Char the F out of the Eggplant. Watch that Eggplant BURN!!!
First poke some holes with a paring knife in that eggplant, oohh yeah, fuck you eggplant.
Next, place stabbed eggplant on a baking sheet under hot broiler, about 2 inches from flame.
Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, get that beautiful smooth purple skin all blackened and charred, then turn and cook on other side until eggplant has gone all soft (about 4 minutes more).
Set aside and that that eggplant cool off. Once you can touch it again remove and discard skins and roughly chop eggplant flesh. (that’s right char and chop the shit out of that eggplant).
Cook it ALL Up in a Pot
You can do this next part while eggplant is charring or while it’s cooling down.
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a (medium to large sized) pot over medium-high heat.
Add onion, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook until softened and beginning to color, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add garlic, cayenne and reserved eggplant and cook 1 more minute.
Finally add broth and bring to a brisk simmer.
Reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
Be sure to check seasoning and adjust the salt accordingly.
Blend That F-ing Eggplant and Stuff ALL UP!
Now the fun part! Stick the tinder eggplant in a blender!
Or, in recipe speak: purée soup in batches in blender. But this is where you can really get out some frustrations with any BIG DICKS in your life. BLEND BLEND BLEND until it’s a fucking fine puree in which you can no longer tell that the eggplant ever existed.
After all that blending, Strain the soup through fine-meshed sieve and discard solid debris and seeds. (There was way more debris than I had anticipated soooo just watch for that… ! This was also a major mess for me, but perhaps I am, just a messy person TBD).
Anyhoo, once it’s strained add the juice of half of a lemon. Taste again, adding more lemon juice as necessary to your own palate preferences.
Pour in a Bowl and Eat
Thanks for coming!
Are you really into eggplant? Well, you’re in luck!
