The Architeuthis Dux of Cthonian Wasteland

Ia! All this talk of baking makes one hungry.

We would highly recommend a recipe we learnt from the kitchens of the venerable Yarooo of the Grendel Borderlands... Gatito en una Cesta!

It is a delicacy and a treat to be sure.

Reagents/Ingredients: 1 Gatito, 1 Cesta, 1 Kris Knife

Instructions:
1) Place the Gatito in the Cesta and use the Kris to prepare the Gatito.
2) Give praise to deity of choice.
3) Consume Gatito.

I grant you, my own chefs have tailored the recipe somewhat from its original form but there are only so many ways one can prepare Gatito and we feel the saltiness of Cthonian basketware really adds to the flavour.

For a vegan/vegetarian alternative, substitute Gatito with squash or similar.

The Queendom of Queen Falcona Stark

~ Texas Culinary Channel (TCC) hosted by Queen Falcona Stark on Sundays~

From the Kitchens of Cajun Winterfell, a delightfully mouth watering aroma saturated the atmosphere as Cajun Winterfellian cooks labored to prepare a sumptious buffet for everyone in Wysteria. Star Trek First Contact Day was on the 5th of April and today's special is Zefram Cochrane's favorite food, Cheese Pierogies!. Eat all you can!

Homemade Cheddar Pierogies (Half Baked Harvest)

"Pierogies are a traditional polish dumpling consisting of dough stuffed with a savory or sweet filling. I went for a savory potato cheddar filling...delicious comfort food that reminds me of my childhood...What’s not to love of about a pillowy cheese filled dumpling with rosemary butter sauce, you know?" ~ Chef Tieghan Gerard, Half Baked Harvest.

INGREDIENTS:

DOUGH:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup plain full fat greek yogurt
1 egg

FILLING:

4 russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, plus more for topping
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
kosher salt and pepper

ROSEMARY BUTTER:

1 stick butter
1-2 cloves garlic, minced or grated (to your taste)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. To make the dough. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, butter, yogurt, and egg, and mix until combined. Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes. Cover and let sit 30 minutes.

2. To make the filling. In a large pot of cold water, bring the potatoes to a boil. Salt the water and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes.

3. Drain the potatoes, return the potatoes to the pot and mash over low heat, or mash in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, adding the butter and cheddar cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out 3-inch circles. Spoon 2 teaspoons of filling into the center of each round. Brush the edges with water and fold half of the dough over the filling to enclose it. Press down the edges to seal, pressing out all the air. Be sure to keep the dough covered as you work work to prevent from drying out. At this point, the Pierogies can be flash frozen on a baking sheet for 30 minutes, then transferred to a freezer bag and frozen for up to 3 months.

5. When ready too cook, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the Pierogies in batches for 1-2 minutes, or until they float. Drain.

6. To make the butter sauce. In a large skillet, brown the butter over medium heat, stirring often until the butter is golden and toasted. Add the rosemary and garlic and cook 30 seconds to a minute or until fragrant. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper.

7. Divide the Pierogies among plates and spoon the butter over the Pierogies. Top with cheddar and parsley. EAT!

Bacon, Cheddar, Caramelized Onion, and Potato Pierogi (HostTheToast)

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE DOUGH:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1/2 stick butter, softened

FOR THE FILLING:

5 red potatoes, skinned and boiled
1 lb bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add in the beaten egg, sour cream, and softened butter. Mix for about 5 minutes, or until the ingredients are evenly distributed and the dough pulls away from the bowl. If your dough is still very sticky, add a bit more flour, and if it’s too dry, add a bit more sour cream. Remember, flour measurements by cups vary, so sometimes you may have to tweak your doughs to the right consistency.

2. Wrap the finished dough in plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 48 hours.

3. Cook the bacon in a large skillet, crumble, and set aside. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and saute over medium in the bacon fat until soft and brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

4. Smash the boiled potatoes in a large bowl and add in the crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, and the caramelized onions. Add salt and pepper, and taste test the mixture. Add more salt and pepper, if necessary.

5. Roll the filling into 1″ balls.

6. Remove the dough from the refrigerator, and roll out on a floured surface to about 1/8 inch thick. Using a circular cookie cutter or the top of a glass, cut the dough into circles.

7. Place one ball of filling on each cut out and fold the dough into a semi circle around it. Using the tines of a fork, press together the edges of the dough to seal it together.

8. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the pierogi. Boil them until they float to the top. Remove them from the water with a slotted spoon and let dry.

9. Heat the remaining onion/bacon juices in the original pan. Add butter if necessary. Add a few pierogi to the pan at a time and fry until crisp.

10. Serve with sour cream.

Potato and Onion Pierogi (Food Network)

Ingredients:

Filling:

1 large red onion, chopped

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, to saute the onion

4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

6 garlic chives, white and tender green parts only

3 tablespoons butter, for the mashed potatoes

1/4 cup milk

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dough:

2 eggs

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon sour cream

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus some extra for the board and to adjust dough as needed

Milk or water, as needed to moisten

1 or 2 eggs to make an egg wash to seal the pierogi

2 to 4 tablespoons butter, to saute the pierogi

1 to 2 cloves garlic, finely minced

Directions:

1. Bring a pot of water to boil for the potatoes. Saute the onion in a small pan in 2 tablespoons of butter until translucent and set aside. Boil the potatoes until tender.

2. While the potatoes are boiling, begin the dough. Whisk together the eggs, 1/4 cup water and sour cream and pour into a small pitcher (or you can actually whisk them right in a container such as a 2-cup glass measuring vessel). Mound the flour in the center of a clean room-temperature work surface like a large wooden cutting board. Create a crater in the center of the mound. Pour enough of the egg mixture into the center to fill the crater. With a fork, gently begin to scramble the mixture within the confines of the crater, whilst integrating the flour from the sides of the crater as you carefully beat the egg mixture.

3. Once this first amount of the egg mixture is mostly mixed in, shore up the sides of the mound again with flour, maintaining the crater shape. Repeat the process with a second pour of egg mixture into the crater, and again until you have combined all the egg mixture. (Remember that making pasta is not an exact science. Depending on the flour, you may need more moisture to make the dough come together, in which case use a little extra milk or water. Conversely, if the dough is too wet, add a little more flour - but just enough to make it the right consistency. This is an acquired skill so be patient with yourself.) Start kneading the dough with your palms, allowing the warmth of your hands to impart elasticity to the dough. Knead for a count of about 400 strokes or until you feel you have created a cohesive mass. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and allow it to rest for about 30 minutes.

4. Return to the potatoes, drain, and mash them with the sauteed onion, chives, butter, milk, and salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

5. Work with 1/3 of the pasta dough at a time - keeping the balance wrapped in plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out. Use a pasta machine to gradually roll each section of the pasta down, successively reducing the setting on the machine until it is at a thickness of 1/16th of an inch.

6. Cut 3-inch circles of pasta, spoon some of the mashed potatoes into the center and fold the filled circles into half moons, sealing the edges with egg wash and pressing shut with your fingers or carefully with the times of a fork.

7. Bring a large shallow saute pan of water to a boil, and gently boil the pierogi in batches for 2 or 3 minutes, removing carefully to a utility platter with a wooden spoon.

8. The final step is to melt the butter in a large fry pan and saute the garlic for a few minutes until it is tender and imparts its flavor to the butter in the pan. Be careful not to burn either the butter or the garlic. Saute the pierogi in this garlic butter and serve.

Potato and Bacon Pierogi with Thyme Butter (Food & Wine)

Ingredients:

Pierogi Dough:

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt

Filling & Finishing:

1 pound baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
6 slices bacon
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped thyme leaves
Kosher or sea salt, to taste

Directions:

Step 1
In a bowl, mix together the flour, sour cream, egg, olive oil, and salt until the ingredients bind together. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for a couple minutes, or until smooth. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Place the potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large pot and fill with cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and then simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes and mash. Allow to cool.

Step 3
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Crisp the bacon, then remove the bacon from the skillet, reserving the bacon grease in the skillet. Cut the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Reserve a handful of the bacon pieces, then combine the mashed potatoes and remaining bacon.

Step 4
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8-inch thick. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut out 12-15 rounds. Brush the edges of each round lightly with water, then place 1 tablespoon of filling on one side of the rounds. Fold the dough over, making half moon shapes, pressing out the air. Press and crimp the edges to seal the pierogi.

Step 5
Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Cook the pierogi for 3-5 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

Step 6
Heat the skillet with the bacon grease over medium heat. Add the pierogi to the skillet and sear each side for about 1 minute or until golden. Remove from the pan.

Step 7
Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter to the skillet. Allow the butter to foam, then settle down. Add the thyme leaves and continue to cook until the butter just begins to brown and develop a toasty, nut aroma. Season with salt.

Step 8
Spoon the thyme butter over the pierogi and serve warm garnished with the reserved bacon pieces.
