The rest of the things that we made for our house rewarming party were all REALLY good, but not really things that require precise recipes. I figure I’ll throw out some pictures and descriptions, and you if you’re interested you can try ’em. We hadn’t made any of these things before, and were just winging it ourselves.
1. Candy Sushi
SO PRETTY! I highly recommend making this! We used Fruit Roll-Ups for the seaweed, Rice Krispie treats for the rice, and Swedish Fish and colored Twizzlers for the filling. The Fruit Roll-Ups were actually kind of a pain to work with and stuck to themselves something fierce, but freezing them for a minute or two helped a bit. My roommate Alex turns out to be a sushi rolling champ!
2. Hot Dog Cheeser Pizza
My previous roommate Alex (yeah, Alexes everywhere) introduced our friend group to Hot Dog Cheesers – a hot dog, sliced in half, with a slice of cheese and a slice of pickle in the middle, then wrapped back together with bacon, grilled, and basted in bbq sauce.
Everyone’s in love with that now, but it seemed somewhat sacrilegious to make without Alex, so (of course?) we adapted it to a pizza. The Hot Dog Cheeser Pizza has regular pizza sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, hot dog chunks, and pickles. Once it comes out of the oven, you brush it with bbq sauce and sprinkle on a bit more bacon. It may not surprise you to learn that the Hot Dog Cheeser was once known as the Cardiologist’s Nightmare.
3. Kit Kat Fries
You can fry most anything with Bisquick, as it turns out. Follow the recipe for pancake batter, but add an extra cup of the powder, and that thicker batter is great for frying. 375 degree oil and you’re ready to go! For things like candy bars, you’ll want to have frozen them for a few hours beforehand so they don’t melt away while they’re frying. If you have extra batter, just dump it in the oil for some fine fried dough.
And that was about it. Except, of course, what party is complete without some tiny backyard bike polo? Not this one, that’s for sure.
