Here Is The Pizza Stuffed Churro The Internet Is Raging About

A while back, a stranger walked into our office with a box of churros and a shit-eating grin on his face. That man was Nick Fasone. Through the years, he has created some pretty innovative dishes in his test kitchen. You may remember a while back he made a burrito wrapped entirely in a tortilla made of cheese, and more recently, a poop emoji churro.

The dude has since been branching into more churro-themed creations, under the name The Naughty Churro, and this Pizza Churro he just made is a fine testament to that.

We asked him what inspired such a bold creation, and here’s what he had to say:

People love churros. People love pizza. I just thought it was as natural a combination as lamb and tuna fish.

Fasone starts off by creating a churro base right in the fryer and begins stacking cheese and pepperoni inside of it. He then pipes the rest of the churro batter upon it until the ingredients are sealed in and ready for the deep fryer.

What emerges from the scalding liquid of rebirth is a beautiful churro/calzone half-breed oozing with cheese and pepperoni.

You can find the Naughty Churro at Oozefest’s Market Place the weekend of October 15-16. The Market Place costs $5 to get in and is buy-as-you-go. If you’re feeling pretty bold, you can also get VIP tickets that offer all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink.

Gordon Ramsay Shows Us How He Enjoys His Tacos

As we’re craving tacos on the glorious day that is National Taco Day, we found ourselves drawn to a Gordon Ramsay recipe from a few years back.

The Michelin-starred chef shows us how he does tacos by making some marinated beef tacos with a wasabi mayonnaise.

First, he starts off by searing the steaks. As the meat cooks, he works on creating a miso-marinade. Once the steaks are seared on both sides, they go into the mixo mixture. While the meat is soaking, Ramsay preps his lettuce, toasts the tortillas, and makes the wasabi mayo.

For the mayo, Ramsay uses a dime-sized portion of wasabi and thoroughly mixes it with three tablespoons of mayonnaise.

Finally, the steak is removed from the marinade and sliced into strips. With all the ingredients ready, he starts assembling his taco.

Ramsay’s version is a pretty elevated take on the classic Mexican dish. While it may not be for everyone, the world-famous chef definitely knows how to make a good-looking taco.

Speaking of tacos, it’s time to go grab some.

This Restaurant Has A Lasagna Made Out Of Crepes And It’s Spectacular

Ah crepes. Those thin French pancakes are one of the most versatile foods around. If you’re feeling that sweet tooth of yours itch, you can have them filled with fruits and chocolate. If you’re in the mood for something a little heartier, add some ham, egg, and cheese.

Maman in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, expounds on the latter by introducing an innovative new Crepes Lasagna to their brunch menu.

The lasagna is made with house-made beef bolognese, ricotta, and comte cheese. Each thin layer is smothered in ricotta and bolognese, then topped with shredded comte. The individual pieces are then stacked together and thrown into the oven.

Once baked, the cheesy masterpiece is served on a bed of greens with a shower of scallions.

As the trend of fusing dishes of two different cultures continues, we’re more than happy to take a bite out of this French-inspired take on an Italian dish. Or is it vice versa? At any rate, it sure beats a Whopperrito.

You can find the dish at the Greenpoint location (80 Kent Street, Brooklyn) of Maman Saturdays and Sunday during the restaurant’s brunch hours.

There’s Now A Pizza Camp For Adults… And You Thought Your Camp Was Perfect

pizza-camp-cover

If you love pizza just as much as you love avoiding the realities of adulthood, you might want to put your dollar slice down for a moment and pay attention.

Apparently, there’s an event called “Pizza Camp” in Minneapolis that lets you relive the glorious memories of your childhood while crushing pies on pies of pizza.

Hosted by the Minneapolis Pizza Club and Grown-Up Club, Pizza Camp is basically an adult summer-camp style getaway that features programming and entertainment for pizza-minded individuals.

That’s right. There’s an overnight summer camp that lets you stuff your face with piping hot pizzas in the middle of the wilderness.

And if you ask me, this might be the best thing that has ever happened to outdoor activities.

Sushi Donuts Might Be The Most Beautiful New Food Trend

California Sushi Donuts swung by the Foodbeast office last week to give us a live demonstration of their beautiful, one-of-a-kind concept: Sushi Donuts. A fusion of the popular Japanese dish and the iconic deep-fried breakfast ring, sushi donuts combine the functional aesthetics of donuts with the elevated reputation and delicate presentation of sushi.

sushi-donut-003

Co-owners Anthony and Faez started their business earlier this year, making pop-up appearances at food festivals and events with the goal of ultimately opening a brick-and-mortar spot.

While the colorful dish looks pretty sweet, you better prepare your palates for something a little more on the savory side.

sushi-donut-001

Sushi donuts essentially feature rice dyed with food coloring, which is then mixed with crab meat and placed in a donut mold. The ‘donut’ is then topped with popular sushi ingredients like tuna, salmon, shrimp, or cucumber and drizzled with wasabi or Sriracha aioli. A nearly-finished sushi donut is completed after its presented on a bed of nori.

Patrons can customize their orders based on color, protein, and other toppings.

If you’re based in Southern California, you can hit California Sushi Donuts up for catering or any other inquires. Just make sure to keep those camera batteries charged. You’re gonna want to grab a couple quick glamor shots before tearing into these bad boys.

Meet The HAMDOG, A Hot Dog Perfectly Fitted Inside A Hamburger

A photo posted by AD.nl (@ad_nl) on Sep 20, 2016 at 1:15am PDT

A brilliant new concept for a hamburger and hotdog hybrid is making its presence known on the Internet. The appropriately named HamDog is the combination of the two staple fast food dishes.

Unlike most quick food combinations, it’s not a hot dog with chopped hamburger meat and cheese on top, but rather a carefully designed hamburger with a hot dog placed inside with a custom bun to fit both proteins.

Here is the official image for the concept, courtesy of Google Patents:

google-patents-ham-dog-bun

The inventor, Mark Murray, was first seen pitching his concept on Shark Tank Austrailia last year.

Response to his product was pretty tepid from the panel, but after working in the food news industry for so many years we think it’s a GENIUS product.

According to News.com.au, Murray has been selling the product at local markets in Perth, Australia, and has been met with “incredible” response. Murray is currently looking for “resellers,” similar to franchisees, to buy a HamDog marquee for $10,000.

Hopefully one of those investors will find their way to California. We’d love to get our hands on a HamDog and slather the sides with mustard and relish, then load the middle with thousand island.

Yum.

I Fed My Coworkers A Donut Cheeseburger From Walmart And Here’s What Happened

On a recent stroll down the frozen food aisles of Walmart, we found a peculiar box of microwaveable cheeseburgers that you would find at a county fair: Donut Cheeseburger.

Donut-Cheeseburger-01

As we sat in morning traffic, the 57 freeway crawling like a complacent toddler, we took joy in the fact that ridiculous food trends were slowly leaking into the frozen dinner world. We now live in a time where a Deep-fried Twinkie and Donut Cheeseburger won’t cost you at ticket to the fair. Don’t get us started about parking prices.

You just pop them into the microwave for a couple of minutes and you’re ready to enjoy this stoner dish in the comfort of your own – well, anywhere with a fridge and microwave. That’s the point, right?

Donut-Cheeseburger-02

The Donut Cheeseburger featured chopped beef steak topped with American cheese, pepper berry bacon jam, and is sandwiched between two donut cake buns.

Upon removal from our beloved microwave, home of many frozen meals, we were surprised by the enticing aroma emanating from the once-frozen sandwich. Hopefully it tasted as good as it smelled, because we’d like to see the best in most packaged foods.

We passed the burgers around the bullpen to see what the brave Foodbeasts who dared to partake had to say:

Brayden

It’s not even a good “2am” food. I don’t know who this was made for.

Evan

It tasted like a McGriddle, but it was supposed to be a cheeseburger.

Reach

It was half-decent stoner food that tasted like couch cushions when sober.

The frozen packaged food item was sold under the Great Value brand and comes in packs of 2. It seems that they’re only available at the Walmart Supercenter.
