Honestly, I was really worried about how this particular recipe was going to work out. Quiches and frittata’s tend to be based around vegetables of substance, but this particular quiche only relied on basil and is crustless. Since I was serving this for book club, I was terrified as to how this was going to turn out and if it would be enough to serve my guests (alongside The Rock’s Pancakes.)
Thankfully, it was a hit! I’m sure you could add some of your own veggies to make it hearty, but serve this alongside some fruit and you have a very healthy breakfast – and a happy book club – I think!
Kevin Kelly was a ring announcer and manager for WWE from the mid-90’s to 2003. Wikipedia tells me that The Rock made fun of him a whole bunch and he was part of the controversial “Pillman’s Got a Gun” segment. Kelly has been working as an announcer for Ring of Honor since 2010. He also makes a bomb quiche.
Oh! Add some mozzarella and tomato to make for a truly memorable quiche experience. Oh! I just realized I should’ve used fresh basil and not the shaky stuff from the container. Whoops! Still good though!
This cookbook has a record of 7-2.
(If you have some time on your hands google “Kevin Kelly wrestling quiche” and just try to figure out exactly what it all means.)
[Insert “Do You Smell What The Rock is Cookin’?” joke] Pancakes! The Rock is cookin’ pancakes, you guys! Now, I have a problem. First off, these pancakes are fine. They’re just pancakes and what I presume is a normal pancake recipe so just make those if you want to make The Rock’s FAMOUS Rock-Bottom Pancakes. In fact, don’t even bother to change your recipe, it’s fine.
The problem is that there are two recipes in here from my husband, The Rock, and neither of them are for a pie. The Rock loves pie so who better than The Rock to submit a recipe to this stupid cookbook. I want to know what type of pie is The Rock’s favorite pie and I want to make that pie for The Rock.
Honestly, these were tasty and a little sweet. Nothing like the stack of twelve pancakes that The Rock consumes on his epic cheat days in addition to the pizzas and pans of brownies. Do you think that you could hang with The Rock? Sure, hanging with The Rock on his cheat day sounds rad, but could you survive his regular diet? (Spoiler alert: It involves tons of cod.) In order to sustain this muscle mass and justify the cod consumption you’ll have to be able lift weight so heavy you’ll probably shit yourself.
This was the first time in my life I made normal pancakes. I’ve cooked kodiak cakes and those weird paleo ones that are just a banana and an egg. They’re delicious, but are they famous? This was also the first time I didn’t set off my smoke alarm by cooking pancakes. Success!
However, I did manage to spill a massive amount of flour on a towel on my counter which is way more fun than just the counter. The same thing happened when I made that artichoke chicken a few weeks back. I need a Flour Handler.
This was one of two recipes from the cookbook I prepared today for my book club brunch. Thankfully, the group embraced the fact that these were related to wrestling and were probably delighted that they tasted like normal pancakes. Success!
I’m going to give the recipe a skeptical pass because I feel like they could’ve really gone places with this recipe, but I didn’t burn my house down so it I consider it a great accomplishment!
Enjoy these with literally anything that The Rock has ever done in his life.
This cookbook is now has a record of 3-1.
