Killer Funeral Potatoes: So good you'll need another funeral

Did I ever show you how to chop an onion? No?!? Well, cut the ends almost all the way through. Then, cut it in half long wise almost through. When you pull the apart the two halves, it will peal itself. Cut the half into segments (again not quite all the way through see 2.3) and then finish the job! Once you get going you can really let it rip!

Preparedness is one of the most important principles of cooking. It allows you to focus on the actual cooking, rather than thinking about stuff you could have done before hand. Cooking can then be a really peaceful experience, allowing you to think about how your life could have been different... if only you had gotten that promotion, or chosen a different major, or had only asked that girl out. Gosh.

Here, in step 3, you are melting cream cheese into the bacon fat (reduce the heat). There is some interesting chemistry going on here: the saturated bacon fats react with the dairy fat to produce insoluble fiber! Actually, this is really healthy! Trust me, I'm a scientist! Taste the sauce after step 4... if this doesn't bring you to your knees, then you need to leave this blog right now because you are a cyborg.

You are just going to have to accept that this takes a long time to cook (see comments on preparedness). I bake mine for an hour, before I put the bran and honey-nut corn flakes on top... then I bake it for another 30 minutes. Don't forget to put some salt and pepper on there before you pop it into the oven.
