There is nothing more magical than a day spent eating through theme parks. The most magical of these parks, one might argue, is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, nestled within Universal Orlando Resorts. So, one might further deduce, the most magical way to spend a day is eating your way through Universal.
All this is to say that a few weeks ago, I tried my hand at recreating some of Universal's most iconic recipes from self-quarantine in my parents' home in New Jersey. It was...not easy. But it was fun.
I started with the Green Eggs & Ham tots you can only find at Green Eggs and Ham Café in Islands of Adventure. It was the easiest of the three recipes I attempted, as it essentially amounted to queso-drenched tater tots being covered in pesto-y eggs and ham, and I cannot recommend more that you attempt to make it, too.
From there, we tried to make pumpkin pasties and that was...harder. Granted, I did not try to make dough from scratch, I could not find any pumpkin, and I was flustered and sweating by that point, but still—delicious!
Thirdly, there was the butterbeer. Ohhhh, the butterbeer. So, so good. So, so sweet. So, so not what it tastes like in the park (for no reason other than that I could not find butterscotch syrup, and also I am bad at whisking things).
Anyway. Follow along with my magical journey above. And have a magical day, or whatever.
