Apu: You’ll have it in 45 seconds, sir.

When it comes to Simpsons recipes, sometimes the joke is more in the name than in the food itself. I mean, Strawberrito is a pretty clever mix of strawberry and burrito. That’s the joke. I’m sure the writers never would have imagined that some weirdo with a blog would end up making this recipe, but here we are.

Ingredients

  • Flour Tortilla
  • Strawberries
  • Strawberry Compote (homemade, no big deal)
  • Cream Cheese

Directions

Pre-heat over to 350F. If you want to include your own strawberry compote, this recipe is pretty straightforward. I personally don’t measure when making my own compote (shocking given the normal attention to detail I have on this blog). Basically roughly chop some strawberries and add into a saucepan with a small amount of water and a spoonful or two of sugar. Bring to a gentle boil and mix until you get your desired consistency. Onto the Strawberrito!

Place tortilla on a flat surface and spread on cream cheese. Next, add sliced strawberries, covering with strawberry compote. Fold tortilla and bake for 20-25 minutes. Optional: Look at naughty pens while you wait.

Strawberrito

I know that in the episode Apu microwaves the Strawberrito for Homer. I think it is reasonable to assume that the burrito would have been pre-baked and then ready for a quick heat up. There is no way that the burrito that I made would have been able to withstand a microwave cooking. My Strawburrito would have just melted into a horrible mess of tortilla and strawberry stickiness.

That being said, the baked version was surprisingly tasty. Apparently “dessert burritos” are a thing, so I guess my creation isn’t particularly unique in that regard. Still, I would make this again as a horribly unhealthy breakfast option.

I’m 99% sure I had the same Ikea dishes as you. Then my GF “Upgraded” mine.

That’s all. Keep up the good work.

They are in fact from Ikea…I mean Shøp. I also purchased a Krünk pencil holder because, you know, I hate the Pöpli kids so much.
