9 Bob Dylan Food Songs (That We Wish Existed)

Bob Dylan Tempest Album Cover

Bob Dylan's new album Tempest hit store shelves today, September 11th.

If Bob Dylan wrote a recipe, he probably wouldn’t rework one of his song titles to name it. But wouldn’t that be fun? We went ahead and mused on a few for him — just in case he catches the culinary bug in the near (or far) future. In honor of the release of his latest album Tempest, which hit shelves today, we reworked 9 popular titles to our stomachs’ likings.

1. If You See Her, Make Jell-O

We can’t confirm whether or not Dylan makes his own Jell-O, but if he does, this should without question be the front runner for the name of his recipe.

Actual Song Title: If You See Her, Say Hello
Jello Recipe(s): Summer Berry Jello, Watermelon Limeade Jello, Margarita Jell-O Shots, Pretzel Peach Jell-O Pie, Blackberry Mint Julep Jell-O

2. Fu-Ever Young

Censorship controversies aside, we’d be hard-pressed to believe anyone — including Dylan — isn’t a fan of authentic Chinese cuisine. Especially one of its tastiest dishes, Egg Fu Young.

Actual Song Title: Forever Young
Egg Fu Young Recipe(s): Egg Fu Young with Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Chili Sauce

3. It Ain’t Meat, Babe

You say you’re looking for a meal that won’t boost your cholesterol, “but it ain’t meat, babe. No, no, no, it ain’t meat babe. It ain’t meat you’re lookin’ for, babe.” That’s okay. We have substitutes that are just as delicious (see the recipes below).

Actual Song Title: It Ain’t Me, Babe
Meatless Recipe(s): Meatless Meatballs, Bean Burgers, Meaty Meat-less Chili

4. Don’t Think Twice Baked Potatoes, It’s All Right

Unless they’re truffled, or smothered in cheese, or sprinkled with bacon, or drowned in butter or made Greek-style or or or…

Actual Song Title: Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right
Twice Baked Potato Recipe(s): Cheddar Twice Baked Potatoes, Goat Cheese and Pancetta Twice Baked Potatoes, Truffled Twice Baked Potatoes, Greek-style Twice Baked Potatoes

5. Knockwurst On Heaven’s Door

Because Oktoberfest 2012 is knockin’ on ours.

Actual Song Title: Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door
German Recipes: Potato and Beer Soup, Wiener Schnitzel, German-style Creamed Spinach

6. Sad-Eyed Ladyfingers of the Lowlands

We’re being ironic here, can’t you see? There’s nothing sad about ladyfingers, especially not when they’re used to make tiramisu.

Actual Song Title: Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands
Tiramisu Recipes: Chocolate Tiramisu, Giada’s Tiramisu, Lemon Hazelnut Tiramisu, The Tiramisu

7. It’s Alright, Ma (It’s Only Bleeding)

And if it isn’t, our bet is it’s probably overdone.

Actual Song Title: It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)
Steak Recipes: Alton’s Steak Au Poivre, Tagliatta Alla Fiorentina, Cajun Blackened Steak

8. If Not For Moo

There would be no cheese, and what a terrible thing that would be.
