1/2 cup of rice (before cooking) cooked in bone broth
2 pie crusts
Sauté the garlic, shallots, onions, and Spam until the onions are cooked. Beat together the eggs and cream with the salt. Line a pie dish with a crust and spread the rice in a layer over it. Add the sautéed items, toss the cheddar on top, pour the custard over the whole mess, then cap with the other crust and seal and pierce it. About an hour in a 395-degree oven, or until the pie is brown and puffy, will produce something resembling what’s in the above photo I just took. Good times! -Van Smith
Yesterday was our little leftovers day-after-Thanksgiving shindig, always spectacularly headlined by the Auggie and Snackie Show playing in our kitchen. This year their repertoire – always memorable for such classics as “Bacon,” “Rain,” “Chocolate Cake,” and “Scarlet Johansson” broadened to include their amazing interpretation of “Losing Control” (watch the video, above).
The song was conceived over a considerable stretch of time by the Deli Sisters, whose collaboration on it has been, shall we say, fraught over intellectual-property considerations. The Deli Sisters’ performance of it while standing on a rock in the Cacapon River two falls ago (watch the video, below) was the basis of last night’s rendition.
