Previous Entry: Ten Things Tuesday 9/9/08

I came across this article earlier today.

Mr. Brownstone used to work at KFC a long time ago back when it was still called "Kentucky Fried Chicken". The secret formula was (and I guess still is) so secret that there is no recipe provided for the fry people at the restaurant! They follow a "formula" to make the batter for the chicken, such as "Mix one bag of A with two bags of B, and fold in a bag of C".

And to take it one step further...the various bags arrived from different distributors! While one food distributor was responsible for "A", completely different food distributing companies were responsible for "B" and "C".

When Colonel Sanders decided to keep his recipe "secret", he wasn't fooling!

Much to my chagrin, Mr. Brownstone never made it past the rank of private for the KFC organization, though he did snag a really great recipe for cinnamon rolls from a bakery once! Between those, his homemade fried donuts, and his egg-scrambling abilities, he's the five-star breakfast general in the Brownstone kitchen!

I heard that using Italian Dressing mix will give you a reasonable facsimile of the secret blend of 11 herbs & spices. Haven't tried it out yet, though.

Home-made doughnuts? I need that information! Cinammon Rolls, too? Oh Boy. Breakfast would be my favorite meal of the day.

I enjoyed this post, Mrs. Brownstone... really fun! *Grinning*

I saw day-old cinnamon rolls at the grocery store today. Tempted... but walked on by. :~D

Thanks for stopping by! I get alot done when they're sleeping.

Homemade donuts? I definitely need that recipe. :)

I am glad you stopped on by so I could "meet" you! Thanks for the organizing site--someone else just suggested it to me. Now I know I really need to check it out!

That's so funny, talk about top-secret stuff! It's so interesting to hear about what goes on behind the scenes in the places we eat at.
