Some might call this cooking experiment a fail.
They sounded pretty epic.
I prepped them as instructed and put them in the oven.
The husband was skeptical. ”How are these not just going to ooze all over the pan” he said.
But , I had confidence in Jess’s recipe, and assured him they would be fine.
Then they turned out like this:
The cheese did ooze out of them, leaving crispy shells.
He was right.
Even though they don’t look perfect, I’m not calling this recipe a fail.
Because we ate them all anyways.
They were maybe just slightly less delicious because we had to peel the melted cheese off of the pan.
But they will still delicious.
I asked Jess what I might have done wrong. She told me that it was possible my oven was not hot enough – since different ovens vary slightly in temperature. My oven is known to take longer to warm up than it claims, so I think she was right.
Next time, I will heat up my oven well ahead of time and see if I have better luck.
Ease: A-, they do take a bit of prep and pre-planning but nothing too horrible.
Taste: A, if they hadn’t melted through, they would get an A+. Seriously, so good. I really like that they are crunchy and melty, but not super greasy!
Would I make them again? Yes. Hopefully I can perfect it and make them work without the cheese oozing out.
When you make a recipe that “fails” do you eat it anyways, or do you just trash it and start over?
