Here are four food you never thought to try hot. These are some very guilty food pleasures, but I chance to say that I doubt you have tried them all.
Apple Pie with Cheddar Cheese
My hubs turned me onto this one. We buy smoked cheddar cheese and put it on warm fresh apple pie to melt. The two variances in flavor will blow your mind.
You know about roasting marshmallows, but slightly warmed starbursts are A-mah-zing. You can skewer these over the campfire or warm them in a skillet on the stove. Either way, be sure to let them cool before handling or eating!! Just warmed, not liquefied lava.
Hot Dr. Pepper
Now, this is an interesting one. If you have ever been to Dublin, TX or the surrounding area, I highly recommend visiting the Dublin Bottling Works. I visited there many years ago. The taste of a Dublin Dr. Pepper (made with real cane sugar, not high fructose corn syrup) will stick with you. Dr. Pepper originally marketed Hot Dr. Pepper in the 1960’s. They pitched it as a “holiday drink” to the market. Makes sense, a cold soda is a hard sell with winter rolling in on you. Slice up a lemon while you heat the Dr. Pepper to steaming on the stove. Then, pour over a slice of lemon in a mug and enjoy! It’s a whole different flavor you need to explore to explain. It’s warm and sugary sweet, the lemon adds a great touch.
Brown Bread & Chocolate Sauce
This comes from the back kitchens of Outback Steakhouse. My hubs and I met at Outback while both working there during the college days … eons ago it seems. You know the Bushmans Brown Bread you get at Outback? Well, most employees can tell you the best way to eat it, is not with butter. But to have it hot out of the oven with warm chocolate sauce. Yummmm! The bread at Outback Steakhouse is actually a dark honey wheat. You can usually find it at your local bakery, or there are many versions of Outback’s recipe online to be found. When I was pregnant with my oldest, I would BEG my husband to go get this for me. He did — Sweet man.
Do you have any odd hot foods to share?
