Default Pantry Creations?

Hey guys,

I poked around a bit to see if there's another thread like this, but couldn't find anything - if there's another one - we'll combine this in, etc.


Anyway, I occasionally just grab a bunch of stuff and try to make something that would possibly taste good. Often it's a modification of a fairly normal thing, other times it's like 3 of the strangest things, but I have nothing else so I put them together somehow and see if it comes out like real food.

Anyone else do this??

I am asking today because when I got home I started grabbing things and poking around and this is what I ended up with:

3 small cans chicken broth (I'd have used a large single if I'd had it, I prefer those)
2 cans of corn (I had no creamed or one probably would have been creamed)
salt/pepper
Hormel Bacon Pieces
1 lb of shredded frozen potatoes (the hash brown kind)
and 1 package of instant cheesy mashed potatoes
1c or so of FF half and half
some dehydrated onion thingies from Tastefully Simple (onion onion)


Anything I used there that's not the real deal (a fresh onion or newly cooked bacon or actual cheese) is because I didn't have the real stuff anyway - hence the "experimental" aspect.


So I dumped the broth, corn, potatoes, salt, pepper, and bacon into the pot and boiled it on medium heat (rolling boil) for about 20 mins. Started to smell amazingly good!! Stirred it up, checked potatoes and they were nicely soften up (I was a little afraid they'd stay real crunchy).

Then I added in the instant cheese potato packet as a thickener, then the half and half.


So that's it, and it's cooking still right now - always better the longer things set up. It smells GREAT and from what I tasted as quick sample it's really, really good.

So basically a down and dirty potato corn chowder.

I'm going to have it in a little while, but as of right now I would definitely like to remember and make this again. it was ridiculously easy and quick.



Anyone else making crazy dinners?

Sounds yummy! I LOVE cooking like this, I have done it lots of times and sometimes I come up with amazing stuff but never remember it so that I can recreate it. I can't think of anything in particular right now or I'd share it. But I really do enjoy experimenting like this.

hahah, that's exactly why I started the thread - I thought "how the hell am I ever going to remember this?? I was just grabbing things!"

This would be a great place, if we get some loony experiment right, we could record it for others and ourselves.

I just threw together a badass sauce with
1/2 cup Korean BBQ sauce
1/2 cup chunky chipotle salsa
two pinches of sea salt
and a dollop of Teddie peanut butter

popped it in the microwave long enough to melt the peanut butter, mixed it up and threw it on pasta.

Delicious blend of sweet and heat.

Dammit, I want this thread to work!!! I will not.give.up.yet!


So last night in a moment of desperation I threw together:

1.5 cups of left over white rice
parmesean cheese (dry kind, nothing fancy)
butter
salt/pepper/onion powder
can of peas


It was delish! I was shocked. In fact, it was so good that I'm making it deliberately again tonight, except I only have a can of peas and carrots - hoping they don't throw it off too much.


MOAR PEOPLE MUST DOO THIS!??

ugh.

ugh.
when i have my own place/pantry, i totally do this, and will post allllll over this thread.

in the past, i have done...


blue box mac n cheese prepared as per the box; mixed in tuna and can of peas; dumped into a baking dish and top with the remnants of a box of cheezits and some butter chunks, baked at 350 til bubbly on top. 20 mins maybe? SO GOOD.


i like to take leftovers from holidays, i.e. taters/turkey/stuffing and mix them all together, cold...scoop it into big balls, and flatten em in a pan with a wee bit of oil. amazing.


oh, and one night my brother and i were hungry, but there wasn't much in the house, so i threw frozen tater tots, a frozen hillshire farms turkey kielbasa that we chunked up, shredded cheese remnants from like 3 different bags, and packet gravy all into a baking dish. i baked it at like 350 for 20 minutes...something like that, and it was soooo good. ha. that sounds gross, but it was great.

potato flakes/instant mashed potatoes, and i make them a little drier/not as loose as they would be if i followed the liquid amounts exactly. then a can of any kind of soup dumped on top a bowl of the 'taters'. again, SO GOOD.

This sounds like something I do! Except I use the white cheddar mac and cheese and mix it with a can of tuna and some peas. I have never done it like a casserole though... sounds like a good idea!

I often clean out my vegetable crisper by making random pasta dishes. As long as I have some kind of noodle and some olive oil, parmesan cheese and garlic, pretty much any veggie can be thrown in. The other day I did mini cheese tortellini with diced zucchini, red onion, some sweet peppers from my garden and some random snap peas I had laying around... and it was actually REALLY good.

A survey of my refrigerator revealed:

*about a cup of soy chicken (you could use real chicken)
*half a can of condensed mushroom soup
*one-fourth of an 8-oz. container of sour cream
*half of one of those tiny cans of chopped green chiles
*and a scallion

I chopped up the scallion and the soy chicken and sauteed them in 2 Tsp of peanut oil. After about five minutes I added the rest of the stuff and mixed it all up. Meanwhile I had brought some water to a boil, so I cooked some pasta (mostaccioli), which I drained and then mixed with everything else. I greased a casserole dish, emptied everything into it, sprinkled grated cheddar over the top, preheated the oven to 350, and baked it for 20 minutes. It turned out to be a keeper.

All right. Here's my secret shame, finally made public after all these years.

You take one roll of the 4-rolls-for-a-dollar round biscuits (or at least they used to be) and you put them into a pyrex pie dish. Bake. Then pour on 3/4-1 cup of prepared Marinara (prego, etc.). then add shredded cheddar. Let the last 2 ingredients heat up. Eat by pulling biscuits off one-by-one.

Yes. I know.

Obviously, it would've been better with mozz cheese, but I never had any. This was my go-to college study food, when I was young and desperate. That shit was cheap, and it was filling. I never cooked at home, so I wonder if I even knew there was shredded mozzarella at the store. Maybe I did but I wouldn't have used it for other stuff, so I got a cheap block of cheddar. And yes, I shredded it myself (I mean, it--POOR).

That dish got me through many a night during my undergrad (and grad?) days and afforded me a 4.73 GPA, so it couldn't have been all bad!

And, I think, with mozzarella, it might still be worth 1 more college try!

I am totally gonna try this (with the soy chicken). I love pretty much any casserole-type meal, and I am always on the lookout for quick vegetarian ones.

One night I had not planned anything for dinner and wanted to avoid ordering out so I threw some things together and ended up with complete deliciousness! I have made it several times since and everyone I have served it to really enjoyed it.

Saute an onion and some garlic in a large skillet. Add one large can of crushed tomatoes and left over white wine (or red). Liberal salt and pepper and throw in about half a bag of frozen artichokes. As the artichokes soften use a wooden spoon to break them into small pieces. When the artichokes are cooked and the wine has reduced throw in some frozen shrimp (you could totally skip the shrimp but it is a nice addition) When the shrimp are done grate in some (okay a lot) of parmesan cheese and a splash of heavy cream. The goal is for it to be saucy not watery so you have to keep in mind that the artichokes will release liquid when adding the wine.

I served this over cheese tortellini because that is what I had but I think it would work with most pasta.

Tonight I had some tortilla chips, shredded cheese and leftover massaman curry w/veggies and sticky rice.

A minute in the microwave later and I was eating Massaman Nachos. They were goddamn amazing.

In case you can't figure out what to make with the odds and ends you found in the pantry, help is available here. Type in the foods you want to consider and it will find you a recipe; or you can type in a dish and get a recipe for it. A word of warning, though: it's a British site, so the measurements are all metric; be prepared to convert!
