Kitty Litter Casserole

Posted in Uncategorized on October 23, 2011 by cydlee61

Remember the kitty litter cake? Well, here’s kitty litter casserole.  Now you can have it for dinner AND dessert!

To form the kitty litter itself, simply make up some rice as per package directions.    To form the ummmm items that go into the litter ;):  mix together 1 cup Bisquik, 1 cup shredded cheese, and 1 lb. ground beef, ground turkey, or ground pork sausage.  Form these into, well, you know, and place them in a baking pan.  Put in a 350 degree F oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until cooked through.  Once cooked, allow these to drain on paper towels to reduce some of the fat.  Place them back in the baking pan with the rice so that it resembles a used litterbox.  As with the cake, serving this with a kitty litter scoop is always a “nice” touch.

Spook up your Soup a la Rachael Ray:  Just make some tomato soup to begin with.  Garnish this soup by cutting cheese slices with some sort of a Halloween cookie cutter like a ghost or a Jack O’Lantern and floating one of these in the soup just prior to serving.  I need to experiment but when I saw this, I could imagine making open faced melted cheese sandwiches…cut bread and cheese using the cookie cutters, put cheese on bread/toast and melt for a few seconds in the microwave and then place these on the soup.  Would make for a fun but hearty meal!

Kitty Litter Cake

Posted in Uncategorized on October 18, 2011 by cydlee61

I’ve seen several versions of this – here’s mine…a lovely little treat I used to take in to share with rest of the school staff.  It always got lots of comments that’s for sure but it was much tastier than you might imagine!

Basically you need a brand spanking new, CLEAN cat litterbox and a scoop.  You need to prepare your favourite chocolate cake recipe and your favourite white cake recipe.  Bake these as per directions and remove from oven to cool completely on a rack.  When the cakes are cooled, you want to crumble them into a large bowl.

Use a package of Oreos or some other similar vanilla sandwich cookie and pulse these in the food processor to create crumbs.  Take about 1/4 cup of those cookie crumbs and use a little bit of green food colouring to tint them ( you want it to resemble those little bits of deodorizer granules present in cat litter).  Take 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs and add them to the bowl of crumbled cakes.

Prepare 2 pkgs. of instant vanilla pudding as per package directions.  Begin mixing as much of the pudding as needed into the cake mixture a little at a time until the crumbs are moistened but not soggy.  Some recipes call for lining the litterbox with one of those white plastic liners that they sell for it but I have concerns about the chemicals that might be given off into the food so I skipped that step.

Spread out the cake mixture into the litterbox.  Next comes the uh "fun" part.  You take Tootsie Rolls and warm them up a bit in the microwave (only run it for seconds at a time or you will have a gooey melted mess on your hands!).  You just want to make them more pliable.  Take the softened Tootsie Rolls and well, "shape them" into what would resemble the usual occupants of a litterbox.  Uh yeah, by that I don’t mean the kitties! 

Oh do I have to spell it out for you?  Fine.  You are warming up the Tootsie Rolls and then shaping them with your fingers to make little cat poops.  There, I said it.  They look more, uh, realistic if you add a little curve to them and taper the ends into points.  Please don’t ask me how I know this.  Take these little delights and bury some in the cake mixture in the litterbox.  A few can be placed on top of the "cake" and it’s always really special to take at least one and dangle it over the edge of the litterbox.  Yum! This sounds really appetizing doesn’t it?  Thing is, it’s really delicious…kind of like one of those pudding cakes.

Now, remember those reserved cookie crumbs (both plain and green)?  Sprinkle those over the cake and Tootsie Rolls in the litterbox to resemble the granules of litter.  You might want to have reserved a few of the Tootsie Rolls (see how delicate I am being about this?) to go on last so that they look like they are, uh, fresh.  Yeah, I kind of even grossed myself out with that one!  Place the litterbox scoop next to the litterbox as a serving utensil for that one final "gross ’em out" touch!

Place the litterbox on top of newspapers to serve for one last flourish!

How About a Side Order of Vomit?

Sounds appetizing doesn’t it?  How to make:  Saute 2 medium chopped onions in 2 tsp. butter.  Stir in a 16 oz. can of creamed corn, 2 (10 oz. each) cans of cream of celery soup (can use cream of mushroom instead if you prefer), and 2 cups milk.  You can also use up any leftover veggies you may have in your refrigerator by adding them to this mixture.  Bring this to a boil and then turn the heat down and simmer for 5-10 minutes.  It was suggested that for added effect, you serve this side dish with a barf bag beside each dish!
