The creation of John Mansfield, father of four, who says "This Twinkie dish has a hearty New England maritime flavor, with a spicy little Rio Grande kick, that all your little sailors will love. Deliciousness ahoy!" (Editor's Note: This recipe once appeared on the Twinkie web site, and is a humorous recipe, not intended for consumption.)

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mash the Twinkies in a bowl and add tuna, cream cheese, and peppers, and mix.
  2. Fill a separate bowl with the brine and garlic powder. Submerge the pulpy Twinkie mass in brine and refrigerate overnight (this is where it soaks up its rustic flavor).
  3. Bake at 450 for an hour in a bread pan, let cool, slice and serve! Deliciousness ahoy!

I'm pretty sure this recipe is a joke, but I don't want to make it in order to find out ;-). I have with my own eyes seen a version posted on the Hostess pages, but can't find it now. (Which makes me think they decided to take the joke down.) Anyone can post a recipe on Recipezaar, so even the bizarre will show up some times. Wonder when someone will post the "Recipe for Disaster"? ;-) I hope everyone can see the humor in this recipe.

You just need to add a little liquid smoke to this recipe for a finishing touch.......

Hi, everybody. I've decided to come clean to the about this recipe. I wrote the original recipe about 2 1/2 years ago as a joke, under my pseudonym "John Mansfield, father of four" and submitted it to Hostess, not expecting them to take it seriously. Well, guess what...Somebody must have been fooled, because it stayed on Twinkie.com for almost a year. When I looked for it today, and couldn't find it, I did a Google search and came to this site. Maybe someday my letters to Proctor Gamble regarding the Legend of Mr. Clean will similarly resurface.
