Slim Jim Recipes For The Modern Man

We have no doubt that the average British man has become a lot more domesticated over the years, now the vast majority of men have a few useful meal ideas up their sleeves to get them through even the most dire empty fridge scenario. Often these ideas tend to incorporate their favourite snacks and the likes of cheesy beans on toast has nothing on these recipes!

It’s pretty hard to argue that the average bloke doesn’t like meat and beef jerky is a tasty and delicious way to get this fix. Fortunately the modern man tends to come up with ingenious ways to fuse their favourite foods into full-on meals and here we are taking a look at some of the best and creative recipes that incorporate the classic Slim Jim into an actual meal.

Slim Jim Meatballs
Ok so it sounds a little dubious but this recipe was actually created by am actual chef! Simply mix up a bunch of chopped Jims, ½ cup of breadcrumbs, a cup of milk, 1 regular sausage with removed casing, 2 eggs and some seasoning of your choice. Once you have mixed it all together, roll the mixture into balls and either cook them in the oven or fry them in a pan until golden. It makes an easy and delicious meatball that people won’t believe has come from a Slim Jim.

Candied Slim Jims
Do you love your Slim Jims but also have a sweet tooth? Why not sate them both with this candied treat. All you have to do is preheat the oven, cut up the Slim Jims into bite-size pieces and put the in a pan. Cover the Jims with brown sugar and bake for 20 minutes, be sure to allow them to cool first! The last thing you want is a candied Slim Jim stuck to the roof of your mouth and tongue. This makes for a quick and easy snack that only requires two ingredients…who would have thought that something could be so easy and delicious.

Slim Jim Bacon Roses
If you are looking for a particularly indulgent treat then you have come to the right place! All you have to do for this recipe is to cook some bacon and wrap it around some Slim Jims. It’s not only simple but it’s also bloody delicious! Though we wouldn’t advise you eating them on a regular basis. The real trick is to do this with 12 Slim Jims, after all roses should always come in a dozen.

Crescent Butterflies
This recipe allows you to be creative with the crescent dough; shaping it into whatever image you like and then lightly dust the shape with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Once you have prepared the dough then all you have left to do is put the icing on the cake by placing the Slim Jim wherever you fell it should go. Pop it in the oven for around 10 minutes or until golden and there you have it, a pretty and delicious treat.
