Fast Food Gourmet

      It’s Friday, and as we head into the weekend, our thoughts often turn to food.  So that’s the blog theme for Fridays, something entertaining about food. 

     Today we’ll take a look at some wonderful looking “gourmet” dishes that you can get right now from your local fast food outlet.  Take a look at these and see what you think:

Not the junk food you were expecting?  Look pretty tasty, don’t they?  If you are having a hard time believing these dishes exist, you would be semi-correct.  While everything that you see can be purchased right over the counter, it’s going to take a little extra work on your part to transform it into the dishes you see pictured.
      These creations are the work of the website Fancy Fast Food.  There they take mundane, everyday fast-food fare, deconstruct it, and then reassemble it into the beautiful dishes you see above.   As the website says “Yeah it’s still bad for you-but look how good it can look!”  
      The website doesn’t give any hint as to why they’re doing this.  Is it simply creative people having fun?  A shot at the fast-food industry for not doing more with their ingredients?   Or are they mocking our culture and the high price we’re willing to pay for “visually” exciting food?  That’s for you to decide.
      But if you’re still really in the mood for some tacobellini, here’s the recipe:

Tacobellini (Fancy Burrito Supreme) by Erik of Fancy Fast Food

Ingredients:

  • 2 Taco Bell Burrito Supremes (beef)
  • 1 beef soft taco
  • 1 large Sierra Mist
  • packets of mild, hot or Fire sauce (to your liking)
  • parsley (for garnish)

Think outside the tortilla. Carefully unwrap the Burrito Supremes and soft taco, and extract their stuffings in a bowl. Carefully rinse off each of the tortillas, and then briefly steam them in a steamer to soften and moisten them. Then lay each tortilla on a cutting board and cut circles in it using a small circular cookie cutter, or simply an empty tin can measuring around 2 1/2” in diameter. Take the filling and put a small amount in each small tortilla circle, then fold it in half and pinch it into a tortellini shape. The moisture should keep it sticky enough to stay put. Pile the tortellinis on a plate. Next, cut open and pour the contents of the sauce packets in a measuring cup, then generously drizzle the sauce over the tortellini. Garnish with parsley and serve with Sierra Mist in a wine glass.
