Innovation is crucial to evolving as a society, and innovation in the kitchen is crucial to evolving the cooking world and food as we know it. Certain meals are classics and everyone knows how they should come out and how they should taste, but let’s change that.
Here are some ways to put an innovative spin on these foods.
First up is a breakfast dish that looks like a cupcake, but instead of sweet, it’s savoury. Egg Cups are a fun twist on a centuries old classic, and they’re easy to make too.
All you’ll need to do is whisk up some eggs and throw them into a muffin tin equally, then add some cheese, bacon, broccoli, and anything else you’d have on regular eggs. Throw them in the oven and boom you’ve got yourself some nice and fancy egg cups.
Peanut Butter & Pepper Jelly
An innovative way to try another old classic is the peanut butter and pepper jelly sandwich. Instead of the boring, typical grape or strawberry, spice up your PB&J by using some pepper jelly instead.
There’s a wide variety of flavours to choose from so find your favourite fruit or spice jelly to add to go with your peanut butter!
Just the sound of this one screams innovation. What better way to make something different than by making it bigger, and then also filling it with cheese. Oh yes, giant meatballs filled with cheese.
This recipe just needs some ground beef and your favourite cheese to fill in along with anything else you think you need for these beauts. Simply form the meat into around five or six giant meatballs, then stuff the cheese in and reform the meatball around it.
This is a great dinner and is certainly innovative in a very American way.
Condiments on Pizza
It might sound crazy that you would change anything about your favourite cheese or pepperoni pizza, but certain condiments can really make them just that much better.
Next time you order or even make pizza, try it with a little ranch on it. Nothing crazy, just a tiny little sprinkle, or even pour some in a little cup for dipping it in.
Trust me here, this will blow you away, the combination seems wacky but they really do compliment each other wonderfully.
A recipe unchanged for many centuries is that of the original Italian lasagna. It’s a true classic that the whole family can enjoy together, and now we’re rolling it up.
The recipe remains the same, but instead of having multiple layers, just make one layer, cut it long ways into about five or six pieces, and then begin rolling.
After baking, they turn into an amazing dish that puts a fun twist on this Italian classic.
These innovations may seem a little out there, but once you try them you’ll definitely be thinking about the way you ate them before, and start wondering which way is better!
