Picture for Troy's Casserole inspired by Community

5,136,701 views  Well, I've been terrified to tackle Troy's titular traybake for years, and in about 12 minutes you'll see why. But, Community returned yesterday with a table read from the full original cast, and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate. Srap in folks, this one's gonna get weird.

Start by removing the top of hot pockets and place them into a casserole dish. Dot with pepperoni pizza bagel bites on top.

3.

Cover and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes until hot throughout. Enjoy!

4.

For the Tomato Reduction Confit:

1.

Cut a small “X” into the bottom of the tomatoes, and prepare both a pot of boiling water and a large bowl of ice water. Blanch the tomatoes by cooking them in the boiling water for 30 seconds, until cuts just begin to split up the sides of the tomatoes. Remove immediately and place in the ice bath, and allow to cool completely.

Peel off each tomato’s skin and set aside. Cut the tomato into similar sizes and place cut side down onto a rimmed baking sheet. For more flavor, scatter a few quartered shallots among the tomatoes along with a few crushed cloves of garlic.

In a food processor, add the green tomatoes along with the gelatin mixer and pulse until relatively smooth. Pour the mixture into a plastic-lined loaf pan, tapping onto the surface to make sure it’s even, and place into the fridge for 1 hour.

6.

Repeat step 5 with the remaining tomatoes, remembering to do each color separately. Make sure to pour over the back of a spoon, and try not to disturb the previous layer.

Once the loaf pan is filled, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

For the Dorito Flavor Dust

1.

Start by slicing a red and green pepper, onion, and garlic clove. Place the slices into a 125°F dehydrator along with the tomato skins from the blanched tomatoes for at least 16 hours.

Then one at a time, place into a spice grinder and grind all the ingredients into a powder form.

4.

In a small bowl, add kosher salt, cheddar powder, buttermilk powder, and romano cheese powder followed by the homemade garlic powder, tomato powder, red pepper powder, and green pepper powder and whisk together. *If not red enough add more tomato and red pepper powder.

For the Bagel

1.

In the bowl of a stand mixer goes all-purpose flour, kosher salt, instant yeast, cornmeal and grated parmesan cheese. Mix together and side aside.

all purpose flour

350 grams all purpose flour

instant yeast

1 ½ tsp instant yeast

cornmeal

1 tsp cornmeal

parmesan cheese, grated

4 oz parmesan cheese, grated

kosher salt

2.

In a smaller bowl combine buttermilk with melted unsalted butter and large egg. Beat together until completely combined.

unsalted butter, melted

3.

Pour the wet ingredients into a well formed in the center of the dry ingredients. Attach a dough hook to the stand mixer and mix on medium-low speed for about 5 minutes until everything comes together into a piece of dough.

4.

Let the machine knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until nice and smooth. Remove and knead by hand a few times before returning to the now well-oiled stand mixer bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, let it rise at room temperature for 1-1 ½ hours, or until doubled in size.

5.

Once it has risen, punch the dough down and turn it out onto a well-floured surface and roll out to a thickness of ½”.

6.

Using a doughnut cutter, cut the dough into separate pieces, place onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and cover with a lightly oiled food-grade plastic wrap.

7.

After resting at room temperature for 30 minutes, place into 350°F vegetable oil, letting each side cook for no longer than 90 seconds until puffed and golden brown.

8.

Drain on a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and immediately sprinkle with kosher salt.
