FATTENING FOOD........mmmmmm!!

What is THE MOST fattening thing you personally LOVE to eat.........whether you eat it every day or rarely, tell us all about it!  I love this kind of conversation and hope you join in!
HERE is a list of what the Yahoo staff says is awful for us to eat............Please add to it!

I have to admit I LOVE macaroni and cheese (as you can tell from my blog's name and image) but there are other things I like which are almost every fried thing imaginable!   How about you?

Have you tried the new Dove Magnum Bars? Well D!!!! Don't say I didn't warn you. (BTW, the Chocolate on chocolate is my favorite!)

Z said...

HI, Linda! I saw where you suggested those to Priscilla...I've got to try that! they sound fabulous!
I tried to read your blog just now and there's no place to scroll down to see after HOT AND COLD SEX :-)
Is it me, or.......?? Let me know, m'dear! xxx

My eggplant casserole. It's delicious but very, very fattening.

Z said...

mmmm.. I adore eggplant. What makes yours so fattening? Lots of frying eggplant first, or cheese...or both? ;-)

sue said...

Z - mayo, fried foods, whipped cream, etc.

Z said...

ANY fried foods, Sue..absolutely.

pasta, pasta, pasta...:-)
ice cream
burgers and fries
onion rings
tapioca pudding
boston cream pie..

oh, a list a mile long.
But I'm usually a very good girl and abstain!

I'm always up for a thick cut prime rib with lots of marbling (fat) cooked rare, with a baked potato smothered in butter, sour cream, chives and covered with sauted mushrooms, with buttered brocoli. Dessert would be either real key lime pie or raspberry swirl cheese cake.

Oh, yes, Joe! And I love the part they call the LIFTER...that tremendously tender approx 1" piece that wraps the prime rib.. .you know?...sort of surrounds the regular prime rib slice? mmm
And yes, baked potato, sour cream, butter and chives.........and I like green beans with almonds with that!mmm OH, and some horse radish sauce.

Always On Watch said...

In my case, pizza and fried chicken.

Z said...

OH, GOOD choices there, AOW....delicious choices!

Lisa said...

Nachos!!!!! The Authentic kind with lot of beans,cheese and jalapeños!

Always On Watch said...

What's the most fattening food I myself fix? Probably blackberry cobbler. Loaded with butter and sugar. Yum.

sue said...

Z - When you mentioned 'lifter,' it reminded me of 'hanger steak.' We had it once and the restaurant owner told us that it is so good and tender that butchers often keep it just for themselves.

Ever heard of that?

Homemade tortellini stuffed with a mixture of Ricotta and Romano cheeses, minced truffles and finely chopped fresh parsley, smothered in rich Alfredo sauce laced with shrimp, backfin crabmeat and bay scallops previously sauteed in butter with a clove of finely minced garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of dry Vermouth.

Accompany that with a loaf of good crusty French or Italian bread and butter, green beans sauteed in olive oil and garlic with a little homemade Marinara sauce, and a salad of mixed baby field greens dressed with balsamic vinaigrette.

Finish up with frozen homemade Zabaglione garnished with a compote of ripe red raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries, top with whipped cream, serve with biscotti or homemade macaroons, and prepare to die happy.

Sue, I have heard of that but probably never ate it....I wonder if it's similar to the lifter; do you know what I mean by that? ..that incredibly tender approximately 1" piece that kind of wraps a piece of prime rib. I don't even like prime rib in the matter how beautifully prepared it is, it never seems tender enough to me so I drown it in horseradish/sour cream sauce :-) Mom made it with the bones on and I did like that tender meat that was still on the bones after it was carved.

Generously spread with gracious living
The table beckons. Lace and candlelight
Mingle with fine china. I am diving
Into the tureen, which is a sight

All white and warm while guarding snowy chowder.
Savory is a casserole of brains.
Sparkling wine has made our talk much louder --
Louder than the voices of our pains.

Drink has numbed our virtues and our faults.
Now food will warm our anxious, craving hearts.
Later, we will step into a waltz
Whose cycle whirls till every fear departs

Leaving us quite buoyant -- out of breath --
Saddened that this time must suffer death.

Fried mac n cheese and/or anything with bacon in it.

I write and maintain a spiritual blog which I have titled “AccordingtotheBook” and I’d like to invite you to follow it.

spreadeagle72 said...

ONE OF MY FAVS. I'll have to send this blogsite to my wife. :) Thanks

As much as I like mac & cheese, I think if I had to pick one favorite food it would have to be New York cheesecake. I can't be trusted around one.

sue said...

Z - Butter. Not margarine or substitutes - just the real thing.

Z said...

butter, yes. Though I do Benecol now. It's very, very good.
A very tender steak fried in butter and sprinkled with S&P....divine, and I NEVER order steaks in restaurants and RARELY make it at home because I'm not that into it...but sauteed in butter? Crispy on the outside, pink on the inside? Baked potato, sour cream, butter and chives, and string beans with slivered almonds? TIE ME DOWN :-)

Leticia said...

It has lots of cheese, bread crumbs, but I actually boil the eggplants so they get all mushy.

If you like I can give you the recipe. Actually, if you have heard of Wyatt's Cafeteria it's their recipe. I found it in a cookbook.

Sorry I didn't check back here sooner.

Z said...

Leticia, that sounds DELICIOUS! I adore eggplant....if it's not too much trouble, I'd love the recipe. xxx thanks so much.

cube said...

I looked up the eggplant recipe on the website Leticia cited. It does sound delicious. I will definitely try it too.

Here it is folks:

Eggplant Casserole

1 medium eggplant
2 beaten eggs
1/2 sick butter (no substitutes)
1 cup plain bread crumbs (I use generic)
1 bell pepper
1 large onion (optional)
2 cans cream-style corn
1 cup grated cheese (I used cheddar)
1/2 cup grated cheese (for top)
salt and pepper to taste

Pare and cut eggplant into cubes; cook in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain and add all ingredients, except 1/2 cup cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Add 1/2 cup of cheese to top the last five minutes.

I hope you enjoy it!! I know I do.
