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.
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).
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.
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.
7. It’s Alright, Ma (It’s Only Bleeding)
And if it isn’t, our bet is it’s probably overdone.
8. If Not For Moo
There would be no cheese, and what a terrible thing that would be.
9. Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way, And I’ll Go Dine
Go ahead, eat out tonight. You deserve it.
Actual Song Title: Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way, And I’ll Go Mine
