Here's a tough question! I'm looking for two examples of films/tv shows that have recipes (for cooking) in the on screen credits.

Apparently Spaceballs is one (in the closing credits, the recipe for fudge brownies appears).
I need two more examples!

Naked Gun 2 1/2 is another
citation:
"The credits for "Hot Shots!" include a partial brownie recipe and a few suggestions for what to do after the film is over."

I messed that up good. I meant to say "Hot Shots!"

Top Secret supposedly has a recipe for brownies in its closing credits.

And I know you didn't ask for video games, but the Portal cake is not to be dismissed.

Not the same, but there was an episode of The Simpsons (the one with Paul and Linda McCartney) that had a backwards voiceover reciting a soup recipe over the end credits.

also not the same, but Robert Rodriguez is fond of putting in a cooking segment as an extra in the DVDs of his films. The DVD for Once Upon A Time In Mexico, for instance, has a Rodriguez cooking up the puerco pibil that Johnny Depp orders in the movie.

Not quite what you asked for, but 'Like Water for Chocolate' has recipes throughout the film.

In the movie The Godfather, just before Michael goes to kill Sollozo and the Police Captain, Clemenza teaches Michael how to make Spaghetti Sauce. He gives the complete recipe. I have made it, it is a decent sauce.

"Heh, come over here, kid, learn something. You never know, you might have to cook for 20 guys someday. You see, you start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; ya make sure it doesn't stick. You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs; heh…? And a little bit o' wine. An' a little bit o' sugar, and that's my trick."

Scorcese's Italianamerican features a meatball recipe in the credits. But it is a documentary about his family, so it's not totally out of place.

The book, Heartburn, had good recipes. I can't remember if they made it into the movie.
