Welsh Rabbit

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

wales_flag_largeI’ll be honest, when I first decided to start cooking with my spoiled beer I was nervous. I was worried that whatever I cooked would taste nasty. But after yesterday I feel empowered to cook with it. Welsh Rabbit is one of my favorite dishes, and this batch was one of my best. For those of you who don’t know what it is, Welsh Rabbit is the best cheese sandwich you’ll ever have, served open faced.

Going To The Dogs

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Awhile back a friend of mine over at Recycled Lovelies posted a recipe for some DIY dog treats that included some rolled oats. This piqued my curiosity as I’ve been trying lately to find a way to use my spent grains that are leftover from brewing. After a little research online I found a recipe buried in a forum for homebrewers. As soon as I get another batch of beer made I’ll make some of these as well. Who knows maybe I can get the dog to write a review for me so you can read it from her point of view. Credit for the recipe goes to beerrific and schweaty over at homebrewtalk.

Dogs Beer Bars

  • 4 cups spent grain
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup peanut butter (beef tallow or bacon grease can be substituted)
  • 1 egg

Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Press down into a dense layer on a large cookie sheet. Score almost all the way through into the shapes you want. Bake for about half an hour at 350 F to solidify them. Loosen them from the sheet, break the biscuits apart and return them, loosely spread out on the cookie sheet, to the oven at 225 F for 3 to 4 hours to dry.
