The WWF Cookbook is a treasure trove of crazy recipes from the Attitude Era, each of which is purportedly the creation of one of the wrestlers. In Wrestling With Food, Sydney is on a mission to try cooking all of them to see if any are actually edible.
So many things happened on Sunday, guys. 1) My little nephew stood on his own and smiled at me 2) the Royal Rumble was super exciting and worth watching and 3) we learned how to make at-home Taco Bell, by way of the good Sgt. Slaughter.
Okay, only two of those things are true. Let’s get going to find out which ones!
We were going over to my brother’s house to watch the Rumble, and it only seemed right to bring something, and since it WAS a wrestling event, why not subject him to this horrible and amazing endeavor? After going through the cookbook, Sgt. Slaughter’s Mess Hall Dip seemed to be the most appropriate
4 tablespoons garlic butter
2½ – 3lbs ground sirloin
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
3 (10½ ounce) cans Hormel (or equivalent) no-bean chili
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese (or reduced-fat cream cheese)
3 cups (12 oz) shredded mild cheddar cheese
12 oz sour cream (or more if desired)
Black olives (optional)
Sarge informs us that this feeds a platoon, and since there were basically 4 of us possibly eating this, I made exactly 1/3 this amount, but probably went a little butter and cheese heavy because I think that’s what God intended.
Note: The directions below in quotations are all in Sarge’s “own words”, as they were printed in the cookbook. HE IS A VERY AGGRESSIVE MAN.
