    [–] Garlic Parmesan Pretzels GhoulishMan 2 points ago in GifRecipes

    Pretzels are made that way, albeit most of the the time they’re briefly boiled in the baking soda water rather than having it brushed on. It gives pretzels their distinct color and texture.

    [–] Garlic Parmesan Pretzels GhoulishMan 6 points ago in GifRecipes


    1 tube refrigerated French bread dough

    1 c. shredded mozzarella

    1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for topping

    1/4 c. baking soda

    3 c. warm water

    4 tbsp. melted butter

    1 tsp. garlic powder

    1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley


    1. Preheat oven to 400° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Stretch and roll each piece into a long rectangle. Sprinkle mozzarella and a bit of Parmesan into the center of each rectangle. Roll the dough tightly, making sure no cheese is exposed, into a tight rope. Twist and shape the rolls into a pretzel shape and transfer to prepared pan.

    3. Add baking soda to a shallow bowl filled with warm water. Whisk until the baking soda is dissolved. Brush baking soda solution onto each pretzel. Let set until the pretzels have dried, about 10 minutes, then brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder, more Parmesan and parsley.

    4. Bake until the pretzels are golden,18 to 20 minutes.


    [–] Chili Cheese Dog Egg Rolls GhoulishMan 19 points ago in GifRecipes


    8 egg rolls

    8 hot dogs

    1 (15 oz.) can chili

    1/2 c. minced white onion

    Vegetable oil, for frying

    Ketchup, for dipping

    Mustard, for dipping


    1. Place an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface in a diamond shape and place a hot dog on top, trimming the hot dog ends if necessary to fit. Top with a spoonful of chili, white onion, cheddar and chives.

    2. Fold up bottom half and tightly fold in sides. Gently roll, then seal fold with a couple drops of water. Repeat with remaining ingredients. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil (it should reach 1" up the side of pan) until it starts to bubble.

    3. Add egg rolls and fry until golden, 2 minute per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to cool slightly. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard for dipping.


    [–] Six-Cheese Gourmet Mac and Cheese GhoulishMan 10 points ago in GifRecipes

    Servings: 10-12


    ¼ cup butter

    ¼ cup flour

    2½ cups milk

    1 teaspoon garlic powder

    1 teaspoon onion powder

    2 teaspoon mustard powder

    ½ teaspoon cayenne

    1 teaspoon paprika

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon pepper

    1 cup shredded cheddar (divided)

    ½ cup shredded Gruyère

    ½ cup shredded provolone

    1 cup shredded mozzarella (divided)

    ½ cup shredded Colby Jack

    ½ cup shredded Gouda

    1 pound macaroni, cooked al dente

    ¼ cup panko bread crumbs


    In a pot over medium-high heat, melt the butter and whisk in the flour until well-incorporated, about one minute.

    Add the milk a few tablespoons at a time, whisking constantly until absorbed. It will clump up initially. Keep adding the milk until fully absorbed and the mixture is smooth and creamy.

    Reduce the heat to low and add garlic powder, onion powder, mustard powder, cayenne, paprika, salt, and pepper.

    Add a ½ cup of cheddar, Gruyère, provolone, ½ cup of mozzarella, Colby Jack, and Gouda. Stir until smooth. Add the cooked macaroni and mix until fully coated. Pour the mac and cheese into a baking dish and top with the remaining mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and bread crumbs.

    Broil on high for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.


    Personally I would add some ham or bacon to this to really make it a full meal, but feel free to experiment.

    [–] [News] It's kinda outdated news but, what do you guys think about this issue? GhoulishMan 1 points ago in Telegram

    It seems his main complaint is that channels are public entities, but I don't have an issue with it as it doesn't affect my personal group chats.

    [–] This photo was taken in 1912. GhoulishMan 323 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Some context: the subject and photographer of this photo is Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, one of the early innovators of color photography. His process was essentially putting three colored lenses over a camera. In 1908, the Tsar was so impressed with his work that he was given funding to travel Russia to take 10,000 photos. You can find some of his best work here.
