OK, maybe her son will redeem her - Bobby Deen on Not My Mamma's Meals

First episode I've watched, he tackled Paula Deen's infamous Krispy Kreme burger. I missed the calorie count on the original but here's his remake of it:

Monster Mushroom Burger


4 large portobello mushrooms caps, wiped cleaned
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek-style yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 lime, zested and juiced

4 large slices whole-grain peasant bread, each cut in half
1 cup baby arugula
1 large tomato, cut into 8 slices
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup roasted red pepper strips, drained

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Place the mushrooms in a baking dish or pie plate. Whisk together the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper until blended. Brush the mushrooms with the vinegar mixture; let stand for up to 15 minutes.

Place the mushrooms on the grill rack and grill until tender, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Meanwhile, combine the yogurt, rosemary and zest and juice of the lime in a small bowl until blended. Brush the bread slices with the yogurt mixture. Layer half the slices with the mushrooms, arugula, tomatoes, onions and red pepper strips. Top with the remaining bread slices. Serve immediately.

If he can reformat her recipes like that it might be worth watching his show.

1. ka-ching

The Deen family has found another way to monetize the drama. Meanwhile, two weeks ago Paula was photographed on a cruise ship eating a huge burger and fries.

That recipe looks tasty. But I don't think there's any redemption due.

2. He's been cooking this way for the past few years (when I have caught him on a show)

I didn't know he had his own show now. Should be interesting.

3. Yeah, I think Bobby probably had a moment of truth and realized he had to change

The way he cooked and ate. I know he's thinner now than when he first started showing up on his mother's show.

On the other hand, at the end of the episode of his show he and Paula Deen watched the part of her old show with the Krispy Kreme burger where she takes a bite. Bobby looked appalled, Paula looked as though she wanted to have another bite of that monstrosity.
