The Bigfoot Cookbook

Created by Jean and Boyd Brougher of Salem, Oregon in 1978. The cookbook came with a giant-footprint baking pan.

Some of the recipes are below. They seem pretty generic. The only thing that makes them Bigfoot recipes is that they're supposed to be cooked in the footprint pan.

Amazon has a listing for the Bigfoot Cookbook, but notes that it's currently unavailable. And even if it were available, it no longer includes the pan (which, I'm sure, is probably considered a prize collectible among Bigfoot enthusiasts).

Jean and Boyd Brougher show off their cookbook.

This unusual specimen was found in Drexel University's butterfly exhibit. The wings on one side are female, while the ones on the other side are male. Beautiful.
