Recessionista Recipes: 10 Delicious Ways To Get Rid Of Those Peeps (page 5)
Speaking of a good stuffing, have you ever had a Turducken? It’s a chicken stuffed in a duck stuffed in a turkey. Bringing the concept to whole new level of birdie goodness, the people at Asteroid are suggesting the sweet version of this delicacy.Time to get super creepy with some Peepies!
- About 5 Cadbury Cream Eggs
- About 5 Bird Peeps (Rabbit in Rabbit is just wrong)
- One Giant Hollow Chocolate Bunny
1. As with traditional turducken, Easter turducken starts from the inside out. The core is formed with miniature Cadbury cream eggs.
2. Take an ordinary peep and make a large slit in the bottom, as deep as possible without going all the way through.
3. Stuff an egg into the slit, stretch the sides around it, and fold the peep’s tail down. Repeat with a few more peeps.
4. The outer layer finally makes good use of one of the more odious culinary travesties, the irritating hollow bunny. As a kid, nothing was more annoying that thinking you’d been given a huge block of chocolate, and it turns out to be empty. To get the egg-stuffed peep goodness into this abomination, first you must open the bottom. Anything worth doing is worth doing with power tools, so take a dremel and cut around the perimeter of the bottom.
5. Once the hole is made, stuff the now egg-bloated peeps into the bunny. Note that some hollow bunnies suck even more than others, and crack and fall apart really easily, so be careful. Once you’re done, put the bottom back on. The really ambitious might try re-melting the seam in the bottom closed with a crème brûlée torch.
6. Voilà, the loathsome hollow bunny is transformed into several thousand calories, as God intended. Many children wonder around Easter how it is that bunnies lay eggs. As a side benefit, Easter turducken illustrates clearly that this “theory” is wrong. Obviously bunnies lay chickens, which then lay the eggs. Mystery solved.
