The Top 5 Texas Foods To Burn
It's rodeo time! That mean time great burnt food!
I know what your thinking - Burnt food?! Yes, burnt foods are usually associated with something negative.
I disagree! Burnt things are usually pretty good to me. In fact, in our household when anything is burnt is usually followed by the sentence phrase, “See if Dad wants it.” I’m well known for my burnt toast eating.
These culinary charred choices made me put together this list
of the top 5 Texas favorites that taste better burnt. So, let’s get ready to
overcook! If you disagree – go and overcook your own food! Just
kidding…thanks for reading this far- let’s do this…
5. NACHOS – This started with my mother back in the day at a restaurant
called Bennigan’s – she would tell the waiter to the chef (LOL) to burn the
edges of nachos. I must say I thought she was a crazy at the time. She
proved me wrong - burned corn tortilla chip is awesome. And, with some of
the nachos cheese burnt too- yum! By the way, I went on to be a waiter at
Bennigan’s and suggested this to some of my customers – no one ordered
it that way they usually thought I was nuts and I got no tip…thanks Mom!
4. MACARONI AND CHEESE- Ok, so most Mac and Cheese is made on
stove top or in microwave, but in the oven with right amount of burnt is a
masterpiece. You get a delicious bite of burnt cheese and burnt pasta
3. FAJITA VEGGIES- Sure the fajita meat is amazing but top it off with
burnt onions and peppers-that is something special.
2. TORTILLAS- Ok, this has to be on a stove grill where the butter burns
into the tortilla…fill with eggs and you got the perfect burnt breakfast.
1.TEXAS BBQ – Ok, let’s be clear I like tender juicy barbeque. However,
the juicy meat part is better with another part burnt. Example – a BBQ
whole chicken with the marinated skin burnt. Another example brisket with
the ends and fat burnt – you get the idea!
