Stale Peeps – Nature’s Most Nearly Perfect Food

Peeps - Nature's Most Nearly Perfect Food


Yeah yeah, some people would say that honor belongs to milk. My opinion? Milk-smilk! Stale peeps have it all over ever other food… except possibly Nutella.

A few weeks ago Hubby bought a load of 90% off Easter candy. Included were a few packages of peeps were included in that haul. I immediately opened the packs to air out, and promptly forgot about them.

Hubby and I went away for the weekend (the infamous hair convention) and when I got home, I had the super pleasant surprise of stale marshmallow peeps!

Made with sugar and corn syrup (yum!), fairly low in calories, marshmallow peeps change consistency when dry. When soft and fluffy, they are like a sugary marshmallow (as opposed to a non-sugary marshmallow I guess). But, when allowed to dry out and go “stale” they take on a chewier consistency. Hubby compared it to marzipan treats he once had in Italy, without the high price.

Whatever, all I know is this is the food of the gods! But only in its stale form. Fresh and fluffy peeps? Just not for me.

Do you have any er, odd, candy likes? Do you doctor-up a candy in some way to make it more palatable? Details please!

Hubby purchased the book The Dog Ate It: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends many, many years ago. It contains recipes that are fit for humans and dogs at the same meal. Now, those of you that read this blog may know that our pooch, Max, is extremely spoiled. He does each PetFresh at least once per day, but his other two meals are people food. So, hubby figured he would give this book a try. The recipe above is based on one in this book.

Notes:

• I love this meatloaf pan! The loaf lifts right out when you use this pan, and the excess grease stays in the bottom.

• We use lean ground beef (90-93%). The original recipe says beef, pork, chicken, turkey or veal ground or chopped can be used to make this meatloaf recipe. While we have combined pork and beef, we have not used ground chicken or turkey to make this loaf, and never just chopped meat – always ground.

• We used oatmeal. The original recipe says bread crumbs. We have used gluten-free breadcrumbs on this recipe.

• We use dehydrated vegetable flakes as they are cheap and easy to find. The original recipe calls for seaweed, sea kelp or seas vegetable. We have ised sea kelp in this recipe, and there is no discernible different in taste or consistency in my opinion.

• The recipe calls for two cups of cooked vegetables. I’d suggest carrots and broccoli as that is what we use.
