My family and I visited family in Hungary recently. I won’t bore you with tales of family fun and unforgettable memories; I’ll get straight to the food! One day I’ll drive a truck full of mouth-watering Hungarian food to a neighborhood near you if I can talk my family into quitting their day jobs to hit the road with me. If someone else tries, they owe me dough (fried).
My chemist brother-in-law and my didn’t-cook-for-30-years-of-her-life sister, boast mad recipe translating skills! My lawyer brother-in-law handles the paperwork and cooking rig – the man knows how to tailgate. His wife, (my other sister) sets the perfect scene on our stretch of blacktop near you layering dried red paprika, hand-embroidered tablecloths and lively Gypsy music! I build and promote the social media community. Once we get people to taste the food, they’ll be hooked.
Here are some delectable ideas to simmer on. These items are portable, easy to prep anywhere (or pre-prep and heat on the grill before serving):
A family favorite my grandmother used to make and I fake. These flat doughnut-size fried doughs tasted awesome with garlic, or sugar sprinkled on them. In Hungary, it’s like street pizza in size and toppings.
These crossed the heartiness of a bacon buttery scone, and a light dinner biscuit tasting like gold when popped into one’s mouth!
This chimney cake was light andcrispy sugary outside. Baked on wooden cylinders, we’d need a mechanism to cook a few at a time, like a wall of gyros meat spits.
Possibly the most popular soup in Hungary, which varies by region or what one finds in the kitchen, gulyas simmers meats with veggies and hand-cut dumplings for hours in a pot manly enough for your guy to tend to.
Chicken Paprikas in Palacsinta:
Knowing portable food sells well, these crepe-like wraps hold a rich mushroom and chicken paprikas inside. RICH!
Not on the menu. Here’s why.
A sweet treat, these light fried pastries boasted fresh sour cherry filling within their powdered sugar, bubbly exterior.
There are others, but these lingered longest on our taste buds. If you created a food truck, what would it be?
