If you tune into the Fox 28 Morning Show, you're bound to see me in one of my favorite places---the kitchen. I love cooking and I love eating but, somewhere along the line, my delight in all things culinary got me into trouble. I made the mistake of saying I would try anything. Bad idea. Now, I have to put my money where my mouth is--to the possible detriment of my tastebuds. "Britt's Bizarre Bites" is a feature that will run Monday nights and Tuesday mornings in July.
For my first segment, I headed out to Angler's Inn Restaurant at Lunker's in Edwardsburg, MI. I braved three of their more 'unique' menu items: Alligator Tail, Rattlesnake and Rabbit Bites and the Elk Burger. I think I got lucky this round because everything was pretty tasty, pretty 'normal,' if you will. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my Tums handy for next time. In the meantime, if you're up for braving a few new dishes, here are some recipes I found that use the main ingredients from my first segment.
I ate the alligator fried and I found out good ol' Paula Deen likes it that way too. Here's her recipe for Fried Gator.
As for the Rattlesnake, in sausage form it actually wasn't too scary. Braving Rattlesnake Chili might incite a little more curiosity and a little less fear.
For meat lovers, Elk is a must-try. It was lean and flavorful. I found a few recipes that paired the elk with different berries so here's a recipe for Grilled Elk Loin with a Sun-dried Cherry Sauce.
Wondering about my next Bizarre Bites? Well, all I'll tell you is that I'm pretty nervous about this next round.
