Default Recipes, for those of us who work way too much.

Yup, you saw that right. Recipes

For those of us that are leads or td's working insane hours for no extra pay is par for the course.
(Unless you're union, lucky bastards, lol)

Such is the life of working on a Salary

BUT, at least we can eat well, instead of living on fast food like we did when we were younger.

So, I'd like to start a thread with your favorite recipes for food you make yourself to keep the midnight oil burning if your working late, and the creativity flowin during the day.

The first 2 I'll start off with are my FAVORITE 2 recipes, AND, they also just happen to be the personal 2 favorites of creator/director Robert Rodreguez of Troublemaker Studios:

1. Sin City Breakfast Tacos (anytime day or night)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XMTW...eature=related

2. Puerco Pibil (lunch or dinner)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiNr0mszYtM

3. RAGE's Menu of 10 Personal Recipes

Ok, lets see some of your favorite recipes!

Don't just give us your favorite foods, give us the recipe, and any specific cooking times, ingredients, tools, and techniques!

....because like Robert Rodreguez says:
"Not knowing how to cook, is like not knowing how to f*ck."

Thats cool, but when you cook them yourself, what techniques do you use, such as grilling, sauce-homemade or store bought, etc

Hey Rage, nice Idea, I like having a tinker in the kitchen! I'll stick some down later on!

Take it you like seafood, looking at your top ten!

Herers a quick o'l fave!

1 x tin of Heinz baked beans
2 x slices of white bread

toast the bread and heat up the beans in a pan on the hob, butter the bread, pour over the beans, done!

Lovely!

I'll put some that are a touch more elaborate in a bit.

Here's what I made lastnight, didn't really take up much time and was really good

Boxed Scalloped Potatoes and Pork Chops in one pan

Follow Boxed instructions for the potatoes, brown up both sides of the pork chops on the stove top, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, put in scalloped potatoes for 10 minutes, pull out of oven and place pork chops on top of it, and if you want you can put some scalloped potatoes and the sauce it's in all over the pork chop. Put the mixture back in the oven for 35 minutes or until done, I did 35 minutes and it was damn good (my box of scalloped potatoes asked for 35 minutes of 400 degrees Fahrenheit but I did 45 on 350)

It was quick and easy, and kind of a rip off of Farmers Pork Chops (I believe thats what it's called)

A lot of times when trying to be quick I buy frozen french bread pizza's and just eat those or frozen lasagna... quick heat and eat kind of deals. I don't do much cooking, it's usually simple stuff if I do.

Default Joopsons sloppy Joes that'll kill ya

All you need is some McCormick sloppy joe mix, Some beef, and 2 habanero peppers.
Dice the habaneros and follow the instructions on the mix. add in the habaneros when you add in the sauce, and mix it in and let it simmer for awhile. When its done, make sure you have plenty to drink, because otherwise it wont be fun.... or it will be fun... but it will hurt alot.

ooooh Joop, I was born in Madrid Spain on a US AirForce base and my mom said in 1972 there wasnt gerber baby food anywhere so she would go accross the street to the bullfight arena, and get vegitable tamale's from the tamale' stand, then blend a few of those up with some water for baby food for me.

Problem was, she forgot that jalapenos were always in them, so over time I developed a touch-stomach I guess, because I LOVe to just bite into one raw while I cook and my friends can't do it at all, lol.

Anyhoo, ANYTHING with jalapenos in it are alright by me

The Original Recipe is not packaged in three different places. The way it is cooked and the process makes it taste like it has eleven herbs and spices when in reality there is not. The way it is done in the restaurant is using dried eggs and milk in the flour along with a box of breading salt and the seasoning bag and a bag of breading flour.

Aside from all that, the actual process is very simplistic. If your interested I will post the recipe. I have recipe's for both Original and Extra Crispy.
