Slash & Dine: Troll 2 – Attack of the Cinnamon Trolls
“They’re eating her… and then they’re going to eat me… OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!”
If you’re like us and love to stay in to watch movies and gorge on food (if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure that’s the case), then check out Troll 2 for a certified fun time. First off, let’s start by saying that nothing about this movie is good, but that’s what makes it so amazing. The plot revolves around the Waits’ family vacation to Nilbog, a small town out in the country. But Nilbog is not quite right. The townies are all goblins (that’s right goblins, not trolls) in disguise as humans who are out to give any newcomer some of their poisonous green food. Let’s also mention that the Waits boy, Joshua, speaks to his dead grandfather who tries to warn him of the local folk. The majority of the film is spent with Joshua trying to keep his family from eating the green food and… gasp… turning into plants for the goblins to eat (what?!) We’ll leave you hanging on the details and the ending, but we will let you know that you can expect to see some of the worst dollar bin goblin costumes, a dance scene that will give you second hand embarrassment, the corniest (pun intended) sex scene with a corn cob, and terrible dialogue – just YouTube “you can’t piss on hospitality!”. If you haven’t seen it yet, we suggest checking it out and while you’re at it, try some of these recipes below to give it the ultimate experience. If you have seen it, make it a party and round off your night with Best Worst Movie (one of the best goddamn documentaries out there!) Seeing all of the original actors so dedicated to making it live again makes watching Troll 2 that much better. Is Troll 2 the best worst movie ever? Absolutely, but find out for yourself.
OK enough with the small talk, lets get to the food!
For our Troll 2 main course:
1 onion, chopped
8 oz. mushrooms, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cooked rice
1 cup shredded cheese, we used a Mexican blend, cheddar would work too
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried herbs – thyme or Italian blend
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In skillet, saute mushrooms over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add onions and garlic and saute another 3-4 minutes. In a large bowl mix eggs, cheese, sour cream, herbs, and salt. Add rice and mushroom mixture. Stir to combine. Add mixture to lightly greased casserole dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake another 20 minutes. Remove from oven and pour cheese sauce over the top.
1 1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 cup shredded cheese – Mexican blend or cheddar
3-4 drops green food coloring
Add milk to saucepan. Whisk in cornstarch and food coloring and heat over low-medium heat until hot, but not boiling, Add cheese and stir until melted. Pour over mushroom casserole and serve warm.
And for dessert:
1 package Pillsbury cinnamon rolls
1 package Pillsbury classic pizza crust
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove cinnamon rolls from package and rolls out to twice their size with a rolling pin. Unroll the pizza crust and use pieces of the crust to make the facial features – triangles for the nose, ears, and horns, thin strips for the eyebrows and mouth outline. Use cranberries for the eyes – wrap a small ball of pizza dough around the cranberries to look like eyelids. Use slivered almonds for the teeth – one sliver cut in half makes 2 teeth. Add any other features to make them unique – tiny balls of dough for warts, etc. Place cinnamon rolls on a greased baking sheet or a silpat mat. Brush lightly with egg wash. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
