A friend is hosting what appears to have become an annual Lord of the Rings marathon (yes, all 3 extended editions). The guests are helping out with the menu.
This year, I've been charged with "maggoty bread
" (others are working on taters, rabbit stew -- meat is
on the menu, grape tomatoes, apples, lembas, etc.)
I don't want to start an orc riot with my dish, so I'd like it to be yummy (if a little gross to think about). I'm willing to do just about any kind of bread: yeast breads, quick breads, brioches, etc. (but not sweetbreads) I'm thinking the "maggots" could be things like: wild rice, nuts, rosemary, etc.
Nothing in my normal repertoire pops out at me as something that would be perfect, or is close and just needs the addition of whole cashews or something, so I'm turning to the hive.
How would you make "maggoty bread"?
