Thread: Sinful Snacks

  1. #1

    Default Sinful Snacks

    Occasionally, I get the urge to eat stuff that's really tasty but very, very bad for you. The stomach wins out over the brain, kicking and screaming. One snack I indulge in is pan fried pepperoni with melted mozzarella on top sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes. Here's a picture of the yummy.



    What do other people favor as really good, but really bad snacks?

    Ginseng,

    Your pizza looks a little. . .papery. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I like Starbucks' Chantico which is like intense melted chocolate. This stuff seems to have either detractors or addicts--I am the latter. Someone called it "Liquid heart-attack." That reminds me to go on my run this afternoon.

    Incidentally, I don't actually think pizza or chocolate drinks are that bad for you. Both can be healthy and I consume both in abundance. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, the other night the wife and I were wanting a little something sweet for a late night snack. We were out of most everything good, except for some smores fixins left over from a camping trip.

    Turned on the oven, wrapped the ingredients in foil and wala...a sinful snack. Not quite as good as those made over the campfire, but good enough to hit the late night spot.

    Honey and sugar sandwiches is one of my favorites. You would also think that with type 2, I should know better.

    Mexican chiaciarrones (spelling ?) - basically Mexican spicy deep fried pork rinds.

    Only once in a while as eating them is something like putting sawdust in your engine oil.

    HEY Mobile1, what's the guy in the video doing?

    Had some for the first time in a LOOOOONG time last night!

    Kingfish (King Mackeral) "balls" soaked in soy sauce for 30-40 minutes, rolled in cracker crumbs, and deep fat fried.

    To get these "balls"... cut slits about an inch apart all down the side of Mr. Kingfish. Then above and below centerline punch out the meat "balls" you will encounter. Very dense VERY white meat.

    Last time loong ago (and several times prior) they were baked in the oven. SURELY more healthful, but lacking something!

    I'll get the ones I couldn't eat for lunch tomorrow!!!

    On a more regular basis, I have a soft spot for Bluebell "Great Divide".

    My sinful snack is a Hot fudge sundae, minus the cherry, nuts, whipped cream and ice cream. I'm talking about eating the hot fudge (chilled) right out of the jar!!!

    Raggie,
    Hehe, yup. I use the chopsticks to cook them because they're the only things pointy enough to let me grab those thin little pepperonis and flip them. I use 'em to eat them too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] All it takes is practice, buddy.

    Lightraven,
    Yeah, a bit fibrous. Funny, when I was trying to gnaw the spilled mooz off the paper, I didn't mind ingesting a bit of "Bounty" here or there. Chantico? I've never seen that at the Starbucks here in Delaware. What is it exactly?

    Mmmmm, smores. Yum. Dark chocolate. Double yum!

    Reaper,
    I used to make steamed sugar sandwiches as a kid. Sprinkle sugar all over a piece of white and then put it in a steamer tray in a boiling pot. Yikes.

    PBJS,
    That actually sounds good. Those are really the fish's testicles are they?

    I like all kinds of snacks, but usually in moderation:
    Chocolate of various types.
    Chocolate chip cookies.
    Oreos.
    Ice cream.
    Milk Shakes.
    Fruit Smooties.

    My normal diet isn't that much better though. I eat my share of cheeseburgers and fries, bar-b-que, mexican food, pizza. I do eat lots of veggies too, and I exercise a lot. My genetics lead me towards low cholesterol and the exercise helps, otherwise I would be in big trouble.

    Mmmmm, pepperoni... I could make that. As a matter of fact, I could make that right now...

    I have also been known to gently microwave a handful of chocolate chips with a spoon full of peanut butter...

    Oooh, that reminded me, a good chocolate malted milkshake with lots of malt powder, not completely stirred so there's a little bit of delightful crunchiness when one hits a pocket of it. I had lots of those malts as a kid but only very rarely as an adult because they're SO sinful! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Grilled cheese with mayo and pickles. Don't forget to butter the bread!

    Aside from the fact that I make it on whole wheat...

    Chantico is the Aztec goddess of the hearth or something like that. But the drink? Oh, yeah. . .

    According to various internet sources, Chantico is a powder containing Sugar, Cocoa (26%) processed with Vanillin, Milk, and Cocoa Butter (also called "White chocolate"). It is mixed with steamed whole milk and served in a diminutive 6 ounce cup.

    Basically, it is hot chocolate, so what's the big deal? For one, Starbucks supposedly uses their own source on European Cocoa. Two, Cocoa butter is an ingredient of chocolate, but not generally part of hot cocoa mix. It suppposedly makes it richer. By using whole milk, the whole thing basically takes on the taste and consistency of strong chocolate melted into hot milk.

    It is very sweet (a little too much for me) and very chocolately (which is unusual to most palates). It is thick like warm chocolate sauce. If overcooked, it can sometimes be a bit roasted or burnt flavored, but that is usually covered by the intense sweetness.

    You can only drink it in small sips, and preferably with some water handy as a chaser. It's either vile or addictive or both. The first time I tried it, I didn't touch it again for months. Now, I can get it about once a week if I have water nearby.

    Aah! Guilty of that one too. But I don't add salt, it's already on there.

    Crawfish and Shrimp Etoufee. The dark recipe cooked with a black roux, garlic, onion, bell pepper, crushed red pepper (no paprika) and celery, served over dirty rice. A hot cup of this with a couple of big sesame crackers is great late night snack.

    Dark Chocolate yes. Single origin, single plantation 76% to 80% cocoa. One little square will take over all the taste buds. You will be the chocolate.

    Raspberry flambés. Very easy. In a pan heat butter and confectioner's sugar (grainier than powdered, dustier than granulated) until it begins to caramelize. Dump the raspberries in and mix with a spoon. After this gets hot again splash an ounce and a half of good rum on it and ignite. Poor this over awaiting vessels of vanilla bean ice cream. The rum burns off in a multi-colored display of flames. The raspberries will be a screaming red color and retain their tart and powerful flavor. The ice-cream smoothes out the concoction resulting in a wonderful experience for the palate.

    Saltines and margerine, Ritz Crackers and margerine....mmmm mm, I sometimes get full on these alone.

    Also, sometimes late at night I'll fry up some bacon and then sprinkle raw sugar on it. I really like to do this with beef bacon. Sometimes, I'll crave peanut butter right out of the jar.

    Tonights sinful snack was this:

    I am mad, they closed down the taco bell near me. I love the Nacho Bell Grande Supreme with steak and 7 extra orders of steak on top of that, two extra orders of sour cream, extra cheese, no onions, and no potted meat. Calories, over 1500 I assume. I gotta find a TB near me and snap a picture of this heart attack in a styrafoam tray, lol.

    Trashman, that might not be "as bad" as you might think. I get one, not quite like it but similar at work. It has much less calories (300 or so I think) and fat then say the cookie ice cream sandwiches. Really not too much worse then eating a bag of M&amp;Ms.

    Ok, a few years and 40 lbs more ago, I used to buy the "Pizzeria Uno" Pizzas at the supermarket. I don't know if this was a localized item or not. It's a deep dish style that is really loaded with cheese. They had a real small one and then the next size up that I usually bought that I could chow down at one sitting. When I decided to get more conscious about my food intake, I looked at the nutrition info and realized that single pizza had more then 100 grams of fat.

    My father used to make mustard sandwiches, which were basically just two slices of bread with a lot of mustard in between. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img] If he was still making them, I would try to sneak hot mustard into the jar of regular mustard. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin07.gif[/img]

    For me something like a BLT or a family size bag of Doritos is about as sinful as I get. I'm not sure if Dim Sum and regular Chinese take out count as sinful. I know they certainly have the calories and in some cases the MSG, but they usually have some veggies thrown in too to balance out the bad stuff. In any case, that's one indulgence I'm not giving up any time soon. I just wish there was a Dim Sum place closer than the 3 miles away in downtown Flushing.

    Take thin-slice deli hard salami, lay it out in layers on paper towels, and once you have a big stack, put it in the microwave for a minute or two.

    They'll fry up, and the grease will soak away into the paper towels, leaving you with salami chips. I've done the same with pepperoni too.

    Since so much grease wicks away into the paper towels, it's probably actually better for you then regular salami. OTOH, the salt… And the thinner lighter chips means you eat way more salami than you'd be able to stomach if you put it on crackers or a sandwich.

    The other "chip" is made by throwing processed "cheese" singles onto a hot non-stick frying pan, then scraping them off when just browned and cooked enough to no longer be melted, and a bit crispy, but before they burn. Preferably, on a pan that has just been used to cook some hamburgers or brown some ground beef.
