I don't know about you, but Anchorman completely and utterly shaped my college years. Every joke tossed around the dorm room came from the lyrical genius of Ron Burgundy himself. To celebrate the return of my favorite mustached newsman, I've created some recipes you can enjoy before you hit the big screen.
This Channel 6 news team-inspired menu is filled with tributes to the first movie, like Baxter's wheel of cheese appetizer, a warm and cozy milkshake for Ron's glass case of emotion and, you guessed it, a tried-and-true scotch cocktail. These recipes are so good, they're practically newsworthy.
Baxter's wheel of cheese
Serves about 6
- 1 tube crescent roll dough
- 1 wheel Brie, unwrapped
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Dried cranberries for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
- Roll out the crescent roll dough and push together the serrated edges. Drizzle the Brie with honey and then wrap the Brie with the crescent dough, overlapping in the middle. Roll out the remainder of the dough and stamp out leaf shapes with a leaf cookie cutter. Place the leaves in the center of the Brie.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with dried cranberries.
Scotchy scotch scotch Rob Roy
Serves about 2
- 4 ounces Scotch whisky
- 2 ounces sweet vermouth
- 4 dashes bitters
- Dash maraschino cherry juice
- Maraschino cherries
- Fill two glasses halfway with ice. In a cocktail mixer, mix the whiskey, vermouth, bitters and cherry juice and shake to combine.
- Pour the mixture over the ice and garnish with cherries.
"It's so damn hot out" milkshake
Serves about 2
- 4 cups salted caramel ice cream
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons scotch
- 1/2 cup whipped cream
- 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
- Place all of the ingredients except for the caramel in a blender. Blend on low until mixture is smooth.
- Garnish with more whipped cream and caramel.
