My wife and I love to come up with new food concoctions. One day while I was eating a waffle ice cream cone it hit me that it is a very convenient package for eating food! I wondered what other foods could be served in a cone. I first thought of putting the insides of a KFC Mashed potato bowl in it -- then I thought of replacing the chicken with ground beef.
My wife then suggested that I instead use the filling of a pilgrim sandwich. A Pilgrim Sandwich -- t he contents of which varies across the country -- is made from turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes (optional). It is one of my favorite sandwiches!
Thus the Coneucopia was born. It truly is the meal of plenty!
- Waffle Cones
- ½ Pound Deli Turkey (Thickly Sliced)
- Instant Mashed Potatoes
- Turkey Gravy
- Cranberry Sauce (Very Important)
- French Fried Onions
Cut the turkey into 1½ inch strips as pictured.
Prepare the mashed potatoes and stuffing according to the instructions.
Warm the turkey in the microwave and then fold it into the prepared potatoes.
First take a teaspoon of stuffing and put it into the bottom of the cone. This will act as a dam to keep any juices from leaking out the bottom of the cone.
I found that a straw was useful for packing the stuffing into the bottom of the cone.
Now add a tablespoon of cranberry sauce and pack it down. This will be your dessert waiting for you at the end of the cone!
Next a layer of stuffing.
Add a little gravy on top.
Now a tiny bit of cranberry sauce and a scoop of the potato and turkey mixture. I found that in later cones it was even better if I did more smaller layers till I hit the top of the cone. And then topped it off with a big scoop of potato turkey.
Finally, make a small dent in the top and add a little more gravy. Then the top sprinkle with french fried onions.
Janey didn't enjoy it, at least in cone from. She had her turkey on a plate. She was really disappointed when we didn't put ice cream in the cones.
