FRANKENFOOD RECIPES: Unexpected Food Combinations that Sound Bad but Taste Great (Creative Cooking Trends Book 1)

Fun with Surprising Food Combinations

“FrankenFood” is the mixing of unexpected ingredients to create surprisingly delicious new food combinations.

Best Selling Author Jean LeGrand focuses his new book, FrankenFood Recipes on the exciting food trend of pairing dishes that, at first glance, don’t belong together but, when combined, make a new and unique flavor food experience.

“FrankenFood has been around for a while,” says LeGrand. “Without this adventurous culinary creativity, we wouldn’t have such great dishes as the Rueben sandwich or the chili/cheese hot dog.”

FrankenFood Recipes includes 21 recipes (plus a couple of bonus recipes plus 5 “Frankenfood Quickies” plus a link for an 18 recipe cookbook) for marvelous food mash-ups like

Macaroni and Cheese Pizza

Chocolate Fried Chicken

Slim Jim Meatballs

Spaghetti Tacos and more!

“I hope you enjoy making them and eating these intriguingly offbeat food pairings,” LeGrand tells his readers. ” I also hope you enjoy the way they confuse — and sometimes horrify — the people you serve them to. You will also get a kick as you watch their concern turn to amazement as they enjoy the results of these FrankenFood mash-ups.”

Here’s a sample recipe from the book:

Chocolate Covered Bacon


12 strips good-quality bacon

1 pound semi-sweet chocolate chips


1. Cook the bacon until it is crispy (prepare according to the package directions, either on the stovetop or in the oven)

2. Once the bacon is crisp, drain the fat and set the strips on paper towels to cool and to remove surface fat

3. Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl (or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water) and cook the chocolate until melted. Keep an eye on this and stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth (you don’t want to burn the chocolate)

4. Holding a strip of bacon at the top, carefully dip most of it (all but the top inch) into the melted chocolate to coat both sides

5. Gently lay the chocolate-dipped bacon strip on a cutting board (that fits in your refrigerator) covered with waxed paper

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all 12 strips have been dipped

7. Put the cutting board with the chocolate dipped bacon in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to set the chocolate

8. Once the chocolate has set, take the cutting board out of the fridge and arrange the bacon on a serving plate

9. Allow the chocolate covered bacon to come to room temperature before serving

NOTE: While the chocolate is still wet, you can top it with any number of ingredients that suit your tastes (e.g., chopped nuts, flaked sea salt, etc.)
