Semicircular Vegan

I guess I’ll start by admitting that I ❤ infomercials, especially food related ones, the more disgusting the better. I love that super juicer; that gross, meaty rotisserie oven thing; the pasta tube and especially that steamer thing. You know, the one where they made a cake using cake mix and diet orange soda? But my all-time favorite, and obsession for the last few years, is the GT Xpress 101, endorsed by Cathy Mitchell: TV Personality and Food Expert

Basically, it’s like any other sort of Foreman Grill type food cooker. It heats on the top and the bottom, but the catch is, ALL YOUR FOOD COMES OUT IN A SEMICIRCLE! And if that isn’t awesome enough, it comes with glorious recipes like Stuffed Soup, Beef Wrapped Asparagus and Sloppy Joe and Egg Breakfast Pie.

Stuffed Soup
1 can prepared chicken and corn chowder
2 1/2 cups chicken-flavored dry stuffing mix
3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Combine all ingredients. Spoon 3/4 cup of mixture into each well.
Cook 7 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat and cook the remaining two servings. Serves 4.


And lucky me, thanks to my cousin Diane who also has a sick sense of humor, I am now the proud owner of one GT Xpress 101.

This blog will be dedicated to my adventures making vegan, semicircular food in this device. I will try and replicate some of the recipes that came in the handy cookbook and also create my own semicircular dishes.

Coming soon: Apple Blueberry Moon Pies

Maybe try making them as regular circles first? Then work your way to semi?

maybe we should have a semi-circular bake off! i will win in the “gross and over cooked” category.

When science can make toast semi circular then and only then will I subscribe to your cockamamie (that HAS to be spelled wrong!) semi-circular food ways!

Paula, I’m really looking forward to future recipes — especially something as nasty as the grey, beef and asparagus roll-ups, stuffed into this unnatural shape.

Comment by Diane

The whole world is waiting for blueberries.

Oh wow, the informercial for this was playing on a continual loop in a recent hotel stay, and I must say that I was completely mesmerized! So, yes to vegan semicircle food!

Comment by Leigh

Those look delicious! I have to stay tuned for the next semi-circular vegan extravaganza.
