Man Burger with Chipotle Mayonnaise

The Man Burger idea came from watching Alton Brown cook up his mini man burgers in Good Eats. Sliders are great for appetizers but what you really need is a full size man burger. We took Alton's creation and super-sized it and made it for real men. Topping it off with a little chipotle mayo helps bring out the spicy flavor that brings every man to tears.

Chipotle Mayo

Chipotle Peppers are a great way to spice up Mayo. Since it only take a handful of ingredients to make Chipotle Mayo, I recommend it for almost everything. Chipotle Mayo will go great on burgers, sandwiches, and our perfect french fries.

Simple Chocolatey Chocolate Croissant

The history of the Croissant is as flakey as its delicious crust. Stories of its origin date back to the 8th century. One story states that the Croissant was invented in Vienna, Austria in 1683 to celebrate the defeat of the Turks, in reference to the crescent on the Turkish flag. Until today, I never thought war had an influence on culinary creations. Join us in adding chocolate to history and enjoying the taste of victory, so to speak.

Rhode Island Style Chili Dog

You can't be a fan of Man vs Kitchen and not be a fan of Guy Fieri. After making a trip to Costco and purchasing a large pack of Nathan hot dogs I was craving some chili to top them off. Canned chili would have been a simple solution, but that's not how we do it at Man vs Kitchen. I needed to find a good recipe. So that is what I did, found Guy's recipe and add a little zing. If you like chili without the beans, then give this a shot. It's simple and delicious.

Beer Brats

Ahhhh beer brats, a couple beers, and a baseball game.... doesn't get any better! And on the upside, this is ridiculously easy to make. If you can operate the stove and grill you will do just fine. And just so we are clear; when I say brat, I am talking bratwurst here, not the neighbor's kid.

How to Make French Fries

Everybody knows How to Make French Fries, but these directions will show you how to make french fries everyone will love. This is more of a how to article than a recipe for french fries. We should all know what ingredients are needed, but lack the knowledge required for preparation. These french fries are golden crispy strings of starchy goodness. Sorry Dr. Atkins!!!

Chocolate Macaron with Chocolate Ganache Filling

French Macarons are becoming more and more popular. These macarons may be fragile and small but they pack a punch when it comes to taste. Think Little Mac from Punch Out! Great part is, they come in many variety of flavors. So far, I have tried vanilla with white ganache, lavender tea with lander tea infused milk ganache, green tea with green tea white ganache, raspberry with chocolate ganache and of course these chocolate macarons you see pictured. Macarons are the transformers of deserts. Mix and match or create new flavors, the possibilities are endless. What flavors have you had? or would like to have?
