Overview

Each week thousands of viewers tune in to watch Bill Hufnagle (aka Biker Billy) roar around the kitchen in his black T-shirt and shades, tossing peppers over his shoulder and lobbing eggshells toward the trash. In this new paperback edition of his first book, Billy invites you to climb aboard for a culinary road trip as he gets the lead out with a sizzling collection of recipes for every meal of the day. These quick, full-flavored recipes are loaded with "fire" (a code word for some of the hottest peppers available), but Biker Billy's cuisine is not about torturing the tongue - instead he creates snappy, memorable dishes, such as Lucifer's Angel Pasta, Spanokopita Diablo, Stuffed Shells from Hell, Blender Blaster Pie, and others that provide a real adventure for the taste buds. Rounding out this unique cookbook is a liberal sprinkling of biker banter, motorcycle tips, and ultrahip photographs that bring the joy and gusto of the open road into your kitchen.

Hot Honey Mustard

Some foods scream for mustard the way a sport bike screams for a twisty road.But mere commercial mustard, even the "spicy" stuff, is not wild enough for most hothead bikers.So give 'em the hell-bent mustard they scream for.This mustard is devilishly hot and sweet.You may want to fool with the proportions to suit your tastes.

1 dried habanero pepper, stemmed and seeded
cup boiling water
cup of honey
cup mustard, preferably spicy brown.

Place the habanero in a small bowl and cover with boiling water.Allow to cool to room temperature.Puree in a blender or a food processor equipped with a chopping blade until the flesh of the habanero pepper is liquefied.

Add the honey and mustard and puree 1 to 2 minutes, or until fully blended.

    Great Cookbook!

    The first time I heard of Biker Billy was on a Sunday morning on our local PBS, my husband and I watched his show. Biker Billy was in a dark basement (I think) and he was cooking. It was so strange, as usually, on cooking shows, you see these culinary experts, dressed in their culinary clothes in a well lit kitchen and cameras everywhere. This was totally the opposite. Biker Billy was wearing his trademark Biker Billy black T-shirt and dark sunglasses. I was so surprised to find out that Biker Billy actually had a cookbook out. I bought it, when I was pregnant, more as a novelty, but opened it up and saw a very interesting person in Biker Billy. His cookbook is vegetarian. So, if you are looking for meat, it's not here. Also, which I knew from the TV show, he uses a lot of hot peppers. AND, as his name implies, he loves to ride motorcycles. I sampled a few of the recipes and definitely fell in love with this cookbook. My favorites are: 'Kiss of the Devil Cocoa', 'Hot Garbanzo Bean Patties' (AKA Falafel) and 'Hot Hummus'. A great thing about this book is that he explains the peppers he is using, and how hot they are. He also lists some resources where you can purchase these peppers. Another thing, he even talks about motorcycle safety, as motorcycle riding is one of his favorite past-times. If you keep your eye open, you can even see him on other shows. I saw him once on Next Door With Katie Brown (it used to be on Lifetime TV). It was hysterical to see them together. She is so wide-eyed midwestern, cute and innocent, and here is Biker Billy tossing in all these peppers and she is looking shocked, but pleasantly! Would I recommend this book? Sure! It's a great book!
