And the Oreo recipe contest winner is…

After much poking and prodding, I was able to convince my family to enter my Oreo recipe contest.

The submissions:

Lara: Oreo balls

Mom: Oreo rice

Dad: “I do not know any Oreo recipes; I only know that you can take them apart, and stack up the centers into a huge giant stack of white stuff, which (it turns out) is not nearly as tasty in a large pile as it is when eaten between the chocolatey cookies.”

(Like this?)

Also suggested smoked Oreos and Oreo panini, neither of which I take as serious submissions.

Katrina: this participant submitted an original recipe!

I call it: Oreo zatar

  • An assortment of sweet, bready foods (cake, pancakes, muffins, etc.)
  • An assortment of sweet liquids, gels, and foams for dipping, such as:
    • Chocolate syrup
    • Whipped cream
    • Peanut butter
    • Nutella
    • Dulce de leche
    • Pudding
    • Mashed bananas (since I know you love mashed bananas)
    • Melted chocolate
  • Oreos, finely crushed

Arrange the sweetbreads (haw haww) on a large, decorative plate. Place each of your dipping liquids and the crushed oreos in individual ramekins. To eat, dip a bread product into the dipping liquid of your choosing, then into the crushed oreos before placing in your mouth.

(Click this if you’re scratching your head: this is zatar.  It’s an herb blend.  You dip a chunk of bread in olive oil, then dip it in the zatar.)

And the winner is…

You’re ALL winners!  That’s right, I will make all four of these delicious, healthy recipes on the blog.  Watch out for them in the coming weeks.

And you’ve all won a personal Oreo chef – though I think the only person who actually wanted to eat the recipe they suggested was Lara.
