The Cantina Scene: Supernatural and the Season of the Dean-mon

Share

In honor of the upcoming premier of Season 10 of Supernatural, we at the Cantina Scene decided to put together a meal that Demon Dean would love. We know, we know; the wounds are still raw. Park the Impala, pull up a chair and get ready for a frightfully good meal.

 

“Saving People. Hunting Things. The Family Business”: Drinks

The Winchesters don’t have time to waste on appetizers, but a tasty beverage?

Hell-Bound Bloody Mary

  • You will Need:
  • 4oz Tomato Juice
  • 2oz Vodka (more after a long hunt)
  • 2 dashes extra hot sauce
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch ground pepper
  • 1 pinch garlic salt (for extra protection)
  • Squeeze of Lemon, lemon slice for garnish.

Mix all ingredients in a shaker, or if you’re on the road with a spoon in a glass. Add ice and let sit for a moment. Place in the center of a salt ring or devils trap before consuming.

 

Follow up with a cheap beer or nondescript Bourbon directly from the bottle.
“I’m Proud of Us”: The Main Course

Dean Winchester’s favorite meal at a roadside diner is a bacon cheeseburger. While we contemplated making a “turducken” burger, we felt it would be better to leave the grey sludge to the Leviathans.

Last Meal Cheeseburger

photo 1You Will Need:

  • Hamburger Buns
  • 2lbs of hamburger
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Bacon
  •  Toppings of your choice (ie tomato, onion, lettuce)

 

 

Cook bacon and set aside. Mix raw hamburger, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl. Create patties (will make 8). Cook on grill or cook on stove.  Assemble burger. Consume like it is your last night on earth, unless the Mark of Cain ruins your appetite.

Baked Bar Fries

You Will Need:

  • Two russett potatoes
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 1tsp garlic salt
  • a pinch of red pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the potatoes in half and then half again. Cut the potatoes into strips. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with olive oil, garlic salt and red pepper. Lay them out flat on the cookie sheet. Place in oven for 30 minutes, or until browned and tender. Salt to taste.  Use the rest of the salt to line the doorways.

 

“Hey! See if They’ve Got Any Pie”: Dessert

Elizabeth’s Pecan Pie

Though Elizabeth may have been all out of pecan pie on his last visit, we’ve whipped together a recipe for her diner’s delicious southern treat.

photo 2You Will Need:

  • Premade pie crust
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chopped pecans (toasting them makes it even better)
  • 2 tablespoons Bourbon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, beaten

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the premade pie crust and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and combine the brown sugar, corn syrup and salt. Bring this mix to a boil, stirring continuously for a minute after it boils. Like Castiel taking Dean out of hell, remove the saucepan from heat and add the pecans, bourbon and vanilla. Set aside for five minutes for the mixture to cool. Add the three eggs and mix together until smooth. Place the crust onto a baking sheet for extra protection. Pour pecan/sugar mixture into the prepared pie crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes, checking to make sure that the crust is not browning too much. If so, place aluminum foil along the edges it does not turn as black as a demon’s eye.

John Winchester’s Journal:

  • Meal cost about $30 to make, not including random fixings.
  • This meal fed about four people with leftovers.
  • The kitchen smelled randomly of sulfur and then my head got fuzzy for a bit. I woke up in a field with a craving for pie.
  • The pecan pie is strangely easy to burn if you aren’t paying attention.

 

Carry on my Wayward Son…
