Stuffed chicken wins Bake-Off's $1-million prize

Way to go, chicken! I bet this is the first time a non-human has won!
Anna Ginsberg of Austin, Texas, nabbed the $1-million grand prize at the 42nd Pillsbury Bake-Off held last week in Orlando. Ginsburg won for her Baked Chicken with Spinach Stuffing in the Cooking for Two category.

Oh. I thought the chicken ... well, never mind.
Ginsburg used Pillsbury Dunkables frozen Waffle Sticks (the sticks and syrup) in two ways. The syrup is an ingredient in the sauce that the chicken gets basted and baked with, and the waffle sticks become the bread for the stuffing.

Bake-Off recipes require using at least two things from a list of qualifying products from Pillsbury, General Mills and other food companies. Ginsburg used the waffle sticks and Green Giant spinach.

It's a quick and easy dish to make and is well balanced, pairing the sweet-tasting chicken with the savory stuffing.

There is no truth to the rumor that the runner up was Roast Pork Stuffed with Uncrustables.

I should have entered my own creation, Yoplait and Cheerios Surprise.

You had me with you right up to spinach. That's a maggot-gagger.

I have that pork loin stuffed with pb&j recipe. I guess I'll toss it since the waffle-stuffed chicken is the real winner.

Here's my recipe for egg salad:

1) Take hard-boiled eggs.
2) Mash them up.
3) Add mayo.

That's it.

Don't hand me any crap with celery in it.

Apparently there has been some confusion, and it appears necessary to post the recipe for egg salad sandwiches.

Recipe for Egg Salad Sandwiches:

1) Make egg salad as described in previous comment.

2) Place egg salad on bread.

3) Place another slice of bread on top.

That's it.

No lettuce and tomato! Sheesh.

I just want to point here that GIMCD just IM'd me that egg salad may be served warm from boiling the eggs.

I have one thing to say on that: Ick.

We need to call in Fanatic Cook to mediate this dispute. I'm going over to her blog.

Egg, mayo, and enough other vegetable matter to mask the taste of the second ingredient, esp. if it's jarred.

I gotta go with GIMCD here Jim, warm (room temp) is the only way to eat egg salad! Court the bacteria, baby.
