Ever find yourself high and dry and brainless? In my attempt to keep you zombie types well nourished, I’m going to share my latest discovery: brainloaf. Yesterday I was treated to this delicious dish. Looks like a brain and is much easier to score. It’s also less likely to give you mad-anything disease … way too much of that going around.
So next time you have that zombie gathering, throw together a brainloaf. So good you won’t care where it came from.
Here’s the recipe:
- 2 pounds lean ground turkey
- 1/4 cup bloody goop plus a bit more
In a glass casserole lightly pat turkey and some goop together to make a lumpy oval. Make a crease lengthwise down the center. Pour more goop over the brainloaf. Bake at 350 for 1 and 1/2 hours (less if you like raw turkey).
- 1 pound tomatoes (peeled)
- 1/2 onion (chopped)
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 sprig parsley
- pinch of basil
- pinch of oregano
- salt and pepper
- red wine
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Finely chop tomatoes and add to pan. Mix in spices. Simmer for 1/2 hour or more. Add some wine.
Or just buy a jar of fancy tomato sauce and use that.
