Beloved animated TV show Bob’s Burgers received the red carpet treatment for its big screen debut last night. To celebrate the release, Disney partnered with plant-based behemoth Impossible Foods on a custom burger called the “Get This Plant Patty Started.” 

Lucky attendees to the Hollywood premiere at the legendary El Capitan Theatre had a chance to take a bite out of the custom creation along the red carpet before enjoying some laughs.

Thankfully, those who couldn’t pull up to the premiere will get a shot at the burger’s deliciousness. A limited-time Bob’s Burgers popup at Disney Springs AMC Theater in Orlando, FL opens the weekend of May 27 to May 29. 

Lastly, to ensure no burger lover is left behind, Disney and Impossible Foods wanted to share the special recipe they created. That way, you can make your very own from the comfort of your home.

Ingredients:

  • For the Sauce:
    • 1 Cup Vegan Mayo
    • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha
    • 2 Tablespoons Minced Pepperoncini
    • 2 Tablespoons Ketchup
    • 2 Tablespoons Dill Pickle Relish
  • For the Patties:
    • 12 oz Package Impossible Burger
    • Salt & Pepper
    • 3 Slices Dairy-Free American Cheese
  • For the Assembly:
    • 3 Vegan Buns (e.g. Potato Rolls)
    • 3 Leaves Butter Lettuce
    • 6 Slices Tomato
    • 6 Onion Slices
    • Dill Pickle Chips

Directions:

  1. Make the sauce: Alriiiight, first mince the pepperoncini and combine with mayo, ketchup, sriracha, and dill pickle relish. 
  2. Cook the patties: Divide Impossible Burger into 3 equal-sized patties. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. While the patties are cooking, allow yourself a classic Linda Belcher song break. Add a slice of cheese on top and cover until the cheese has melted. 
  3. Build the burger: Lightly toast the burger buns, and then add a layer of the sauce. Top with the patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, and dill pickle chips. Forecast calls for fabulous burgers
  4. Serve, share, and get this patty started! In the words of Linda, “so fricken excited!”

The Bob’s Burgers Movie releases this month on May 27th. If I were you, I’d make a couple of these burgers and sneak them in.

First Look at Jo Koy’s Upcoming Film, ‘Easter Sunday’, Features Scene With Filipino Food Spread

Entertainment Weekly has gotten an exclusive first look at comedian Jo Koy’s upcoming movie, Easter Sunday, that’s centered around a Filipino-American family, a first for a studio film. Jo Koy has rocketed to stardom via his comedy based on his stories of growing up as a Filipino-American kid and his hilarious dynamic with his mother.

Coming as a Filipino-American kid myself, I remember hanging on to the few Filipino celebrities I’d see in TV and movies. Dante Basco had me rooting for Rufio in Hook and his younger brother, Dion, had me tuning in on Saturday mornings watching City Guys. When it came to representation in entertainment, I took what I could get.

Now, with the unexpected help of Steven Spielberg, Jo Koy has made his movie idea about a Filipino-American family a reality. He explained to EW, “[It’s about] a family that lives in America just like everybody else. And you’re going to relate to this family because you know them. And oh, by the way, you’re going to learn some stuff about Filipinos on the way too. So that’s kind of cool too.”

One of the things that folks will get to learn about through the movie is how Filipino families do a feast. In one screen cap from the flick, Jo Koy’s character and his mother are seen in front of a mouthwatering spread of Filipino food. From the looks of things, I spy some empanada, pancit, adobo and sisig.

Jo Koy related to EW, “We’re going to represent my family, and we’re going to represent my culture. Of course, we had the big lechon. We had to. So yes, there’s a big pig on the table, but that’s what’s there every birthday and every Easter. If I didn’t put that there, [Filipinos] would’ve been mad. But on the other side, I wanted to show adobo. I wanted to show pancit. I wanted to show our egg rolls. I wanted to show what a spread looks like on our table and how delicious our food is.”

Growing up watching Iron Chef, I was mesmerized by both the original Japanese program as well as the American rendition.

Watch Shaq Get Pranked With a Smoothie Containing Lotion and Ranch

The uproarious hijinks that go on during any episode of Inside The NBA are a part of the special recipe that’s made the Hall of Fame show so legendary and beloved. A main culprit in said hijinks is Shaquille O’Neal, usually on the receiving end of a prank or mishap.

The Big Fella played the hilarious victim again, after co-host Kenny Smith became fed up of Shaq making fun of his healthy eating habits and chose to exact revenge. How? By way of a nasty smoothie he concocted, made up of random ingredients like Metamucil fiber supplement, Aveeno lotion and ranch dressing.

The segment starts with Shaq taking a cautious sip of said smoothie, followed by showing surprising approval for how it tasted. “This is nice,” he admitted. “I taste cranberry and pineapple.”

Kenny then went straight for the big reveal, unveiling the list of ingredients that went into it in a separate video clip recorded earlier in the day, before blending it all together, ready to ruin The Big Diesel’s day.

The thoroughly unamused look on Shaq’s face afterwards, his gagging reactions and Kenny ducking behind Charles Barkley made for another side-splitting moment by the Inside The NBA crew.

‘Peaky Blinders’ Fans Can Enjoy a Free ‘Shelby Sour’ at Their Local Bar Courtesy of Bushmills

It may not be “f*cking Wednesday,” but we have some good news for fans of “Peaky Blinders.”

Bushmills Irish Whiskey recently announced its designation as the official whiskey of the show, and preferred sipper of the Shelby Family. 

To kick off the partnership, now through St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, fans can order a Shelby Sour from their local bar, and Bushmills will cover the cost. The cocktail, inspired by Tommy Shelby, features sweet flavors, balanced by the warm finish of the Irish Whiskey.

“What better way to welcome Bushmills as the Official Whiskey of the ‘Peaky Blinders’ TV series than with a free whiskey cocktail for our loyal fans”, said Scott Shillet, Vice President of Licensing at Endemol Shine North America.

The Shelby Family and Bushmills share stories of perseverance in the face of adversity. Made on the north coast of Ireland, Bushmills has stood the test of time for over 400 years, having overcome conflict, fire and famine.

“The motivations of the Shelby’s are those of family, loyalty and perseverance, which are the same qualities that have put Bushmills at the forefront of whiskey making for hundreds of years,” said Lander Otegui, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Proximo Spirits.

Throughout the year, Bushmills and Endemol Shine North America, in collaboration with “Peaky Blinders” official brand owner and series producer, Caryn Mandabach Productions, will connect with fans via co-branded content, an advertising campaign and live experiences. 

As Tommy Shelby said, “Whiskey’s good proofing water. Tells you who’s real and who isn’t.”

Whiskey fans excited about this news should also know about the new Jameson expression that debuted at the beginning of this year.

“I’m serious about this stuff. I’m up the night before, pressing garlic and dicing whole tomatoes. I toast my own ancho chills. It’s a recipe passed down by Malones for generations. It’s probably the thing I do best.”

This was the iconic commentary ‘The Office’s’ Kevin Malone provided regarding his recipe for ‘Kevin’s Famous Chili’ — right before he infamously dropped the pot and spilled it everywhere.

If the ensuing scene of the clean up effort made you cringe and empathize with Kevin over all that lost chili, rest assured that there’s an actual recipe out there to help you recreate it. The recipe just so happens to be found in the most unlikely place.

As TikTok account @hiddentvdetails points out in the clip above, the full recipe for ‘Kevin’s Famous Chili’ can actually be found hidden within the Peacock streaming service’s terms and conditions.

Count Homer Simpson’s pink donut, the plate of spaghetti with meatballs in Lady and the Tramp, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ extra cheesy pizza in that bunch. But such a list of legendary bites would never be complete without the Krabby Patty from Spongebob Squarepants.
