Our top five recipes (2016 edition)

Three bean salad KFC style

Three bean salad KFC style (plus bonus garbanzos)

This month marks the fifth anniversary of Burnt My Fingers. Thanks for sticking around! As is our custom, we’re reporting the top five recipes measured in page views over the last year. Actually there are six because I have a little trouble believing the stats for #5.

#1. The Colonel’s KFC Three-Bean Salad. And why not? If the Colonel no longer serves it, we will… and we just might improve it with some bonus garbanzo beans.

#2. Vincent’s Garlic Cole Slaw. Sadly, the last Vincent’s seafood restaurant in Plano, TX closed this year, so the only way to get this reeking ambrosia is to make it yourself.

#3. General Tso’s Shrimp with Garlic Sauce. This is a home-grown, from-scratch recipe originated right here, as we attempted to duplicate the Spicy Garlic Shrimp at Taiwan Restaurant on Clement in SF and ended up with something much better.

#4. Squash Casserole a la Highland Park Cafeteria. Great to see there are so many lovers of this Texas classic, as well as the HPC itself. (Although I did get a comment this year from a former HPC employee who said our recipe was different than how they make it at the cafeteria.)

#5. Pickled Tripe. Really, people? I suspect hackers in the Amish Country of Pennsylvania, even though I thought they were not supposed to use electronic gadgets.

#6. Fried Calamari Chinese-Style. The only thing better than Italian-style crispy fried squid is Chinese-style, where you get bonus fried chili rings mixed in.

Happy anniversary to us. Wonder what the list will look like next year?

    Re. #5: Everyone loves a freak show.

    Step inside! Hello! We’ve a most amazing show
    You’ll enjoy it all we know
    Step inside! Step inside!

    We’ve got thrills and shocks, supersonic fighting cocks.
    Leave your hammers at the box
    Come inside! Come inside!

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
    See the show!

    Left behind the bars, rows of Bishops’ heads in jars
    And a bomb inside a car
    Spectacular! Spectacular!

    If you follow me there’s a speciality
    Some tears for you to see
    Misery, misery,

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
    See the show!

    Next upon the bill in our House of Vaudeville
    We’ve a stripper in a till
    What a thrill! What a thrill!

    And not content with that,
    With our hands behind our backs,
    We pull Jesus from a hat,
    Get into that! Get into that!

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
    See the show!
