Edible Art: Roasted Tribbles
An angry group of Klingons is about to beam over to your ship. The good news is all Starfleet transporters come equipped with tribbles waiting to be rematerialzed for your protection. The bad news is once the Klingons flee their fuzzy adorableness, your ship is still full of tribbles.
Starfleet regulations include one simple solution.
Roasted Tribbles Recipe
1 pound ground tribble meat (you can substitute ground chicken)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 egg, unmolested
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup crushed cornflakes
Mix 1 pound of fresh tribble meat (or ground chicken) with olive oil, bread crumbs, one egg, and all your seasonings. Newborn tribbles are extra tender and cuddly, so shape the mix into golfball sized balls.
Crack your remaining eggs into a large bowl and beat them like they just played the fifth ace in a game of Andoran poker.
Mix your flour, coconut flakes, and crushed cornflakes in a bag. Rough them up a the same way you would a Klingon who insulted your ship. Pour the result onto a plate as shallow as those Klingon bastard’s morals.
Set up an assembly line. Dip your tribble meat in the egg wash, roll the creature around in the crunchy coating, and put it on a well greased baking sheet.
Spritz your tribbles with olive oil spray or nonstick coating for some extra crunch.
Bake at 375F for 10 minutes. Flip your tribbles and bake them for another 10 minutes.
Serve with Romulan Ale, Klingon Blood Wine, or a simple glass of Earl Grey, hot.
