Introduction: Vince's Slap-Chop Breakfast to Go in a Snuggie
Yay! We got a Slap-Chop for Christmas this year. And, earlier this year, I decided to pick up a Snuggie. On a quest to document the ways in which my life has been improved by products Seen on TV, I decided to make: Vince's Slap-Chop Breakfast To Go in a Snuggie!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Place Ham on Chopping Surface
We have lots of leftover hickory smoked ham from Christmas dinner, so I grabbed some of that, broke it up a little and placed onto the chopping surface.
Step 2: Add One Hard-Boiled Egg
Next up, I added one hard-boiled egg. My loving wife made lots of deviled eggs for Christmas dinner, so I just ganked one of them and "re-purposed" it to the Breakfast To Go in a Snuggie project.
Step 3: Fear the Pickle
As Vince shows us in the infomercial, we must add one pickle. I only had some full-sized Vlassic pickles on-hand, so I broke one in half. I used one half for the "recipe" and ate the other half immediately.
Step 4: Slap Your Troubles Away!
With ingredients situated as shown, it's now time to start slapping! I slapped this stuff silly...and to my dismay...
Step 5: NOT As Seen on TV
The result was clearly unlike As Seen on TV. Not quite sure where I went wrong, but this was a bit of a disaster.
Step 6: Pickled Body
We somehow ended up with pickle pieces clear up inside the body of the Slap-Chop.
Step 7: Eggtastic
Pieces of egg were stuck in the Slap-Chop blades clear at the top of the assembly.
Step 8: Miscellany
Miscellaneous bits of ham, boiled egg yolk and pickle were stuck to various parts of the Slap-Chop's blades.
Step 9: Very Nasty!
It's not a good-tasting snack, and we could not figure out how to make it "portable" as indicated in the infomercial's claim of, "Breakfast To Go." Perhaps I've done something very wrongly, but this incident has truly changed my life forever!
