From the July/August 2022 issue of car and driver.

If there is more space on the front cover of the printed magazine, we will push for a rename to “car and driver She told Lunch Magazine, “Because the one thing this group loves as much as they love sitting behind the wheel is finding somewhere to eat afterwards. In an effort to bring together our favorite activities, we searched for as many car-themed recipes as possible, and here They are tested and evaluated for your enjoyment.

You have a car, what do you eat?

Conveyor-shaped pasta makes the perfect way to move cheese and butter into our stomachs. A recurring theme of these dishes is that we find them on websites that cater to children. The fact that they talk to us a lot as adults is something we prefer not to examine about ourselves. This combination of trains, planes, motorbikes, and Li’l coupes proclaimed itself “Pasta Gourmet 4 Kids,” and would be great in cheese sauce for some kids. We tried adding anchovy butter sauce and garnishing with parsley and Parmesan.

Easy recipe: Can you boil water?
Verdict:
7/10 group transit meal.

Three different animals. Four types of meat. Some kind of PT Cruiser/VW synthesizer? It will clog arteries like rush hour traffic. There is no recipe link for this because this is horror straight from the depths of our souls. Any 1kg meatloaf recipe will work. We’ve found that the loaf needs about 20 minutes more cooking time to reach a safe internal temperature than a standard meat loaf, but don’t worry: Coating two types of bacon kept it from drying out.

Here is a basic summary:

1 pound minced meat
1 pound ground pork or turkey
2 strips of bacon, cut to fit the ceiling
4 rounds of Canadian bacon, trimmed to fit wheel wells (we used an upside down glaze to cut it out)
1 cup instant mashed potatoes (or breadcrumbs)
Seasoning of your choice (we used horseradish, mustard, salt, pepper)
Two carrot rounds for the headlights
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Mix the minced meat, spices and potato chips. This thing is the real gross. Try not to think about it too much. Oil pot with nonstick spray and put bacon on top, Canadian bacon on wheels, and carrot rounds in headlights. Slowly add the ground mixture to the pan, being careful not to disturb the wheels and headlights. It’s okay to bother asking why you made the meat car. Put the mixture well in place, cover with ketchup, and put the car tray inside a regular baking tray (this is so that the top does not burn and also so that the oven is not completely filled with meat juice).

Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 160°F, remove and let cool for 30 minutes. Carefully invert the tray onto the serving tray. The brown exterior with the lamp (this part is super fun, but do it outside in case things are on fire). Garnish as desired with drained mashed potatoes and serve, along with my apologies.

Easy recipe: Just because it can be done doesn’t mean it should be done.
Verdict:
5/10 delicious horror show. Regardless of all the brutality, this was a good meatloaf.

It’s a race through the digestive tract! Again, a recipe straight from the kids’ party book. This one is a winner, though. Yes, it’s just a hot dog with little wheels, but it’s fun to make, and a hot dog with cucumber is a combination of delicious flavor and amazing texture. Make hot dogs as you normally would. Cut thick slices of cucumber and half a cherry tomato for wheels. Collect it on toothpicks and insert it into a cake. We added tomato-headed drivers and salty steering wheels.

Easy recipe: Much easier than qualifying for the Indy 500.
Verdict:
9/10 option wheels make it healthy.

Custom snacks that can scrape a tire and lift a wheel. There has been some debate as to whether these celery carts are low-cars or off-road, but either way they have an expression that hangs for days, so drop them or send them huddling through a thicket of broccoli. It’s easy to do no matter where you plan to drive it. Insert toothpicks through celery, add carrot wheels, then fill celery with peanut butter or guacamole, or cheese if you’re cranky. Add a driver with raisins, olives, or chocolate chips, whatever works best for you.

Easy recipe: Much faster than diagram and lace.
Verdict:
8/10 Bounce-Bounce, Crunch-Crunch.

Honey, I’m just wondering what you’re doing up there in the back of a Gummi Cadillac. . . As much as there is a perversion for every fetish—the perverse meatloaf, don’t call us—there is Gummi candy for any shape you can imagine. We’ve found Gummi race cars in the past, but this time around we decided to take a step up in the gelatinous pink Cadillacs. The flavor was good, but we had some complaints about the texture. The carriage should be easy; This was a sports car company.

Easy recipe: Smooth as the ride in El Dorado. Just pour them out of the bag.
Verdict:
3/10 Your dentist will be able to purchase a new Escalade after all fillings have been replaced.

Our respect for paint and body connoisseurs increased with each cookie. Present your hat to the sugar cookie baker in your family, because this one’s tough! We first tried Pillsbury’s pre-made dough, which spread out too much to hold the shape of our elaborate cutouts. Is this a Bronco? land Rover? Hippo sleeping? The next batch we tried was easy to mix up but tended to fall apart, and all the resulting cookies seemed to have underlying rust issues. Our final recipe was more work and ingredients, but the cookies came out very smooth and detailed. The decoration afterwards could still use a bit of work. Tips: Freeze the cutters before baking, and replace the wooden rolling pin with a nonstick pin.

Easy recipe: It took four different tests of the recipe to find one that held up, and we had to eat all the failures.
Verdict:
6/10 is probably the most authentic 914, as most real ones are all crumbs now too.

If we could get away with filling a full-size truck bed with syrup, we would. Is the waffle maker in the shape of a car for children? We don’t care, it’s pretty cool. Pickup beds are the best, with more cargo space for butter, syrup, and berries. It takes some practice to determine the exact correct amount of fill to get every detail and minimal overflow, and the iron heats up, so if you’re doing this with kids, be sure to keep their fingers out until they’ve cooled.

Easy recipe: Like real cars, metal parts lubrication is key to non-stick performance.
Verdict:
8/10 An early morning car is an encounter worth waking up for.

Being bad on baked goods. This is a cliched online photo posted on Instagram accounts every holiday, but we can see why. It looks great, and it’s very easy to do. Our only tip is to wait until serving before spinning those wheels. Just like real fatigue, it dissipates over time, after which you’re left with soggy pie and tire wires.

Easy recipe: It can only scan Reddi Wip.
Verdict:
10/10 way to exercise your Thanksgiving burnout without spoiling your in-laws’ aisle.

If you try any of these things, tag CarandDriver in your photos online. Unless it’s meatloaf. We don’t want to see that again.
