After much poking and prodding, I was able to convince my family to enter my Oreo recipe contest.
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.”
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
- Dulce de leche
- 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.
