More proof that anything becomes edible as long as you start with enough butter and sugar.

I prefer gagh, myself. But it must be alive.

Couldn't be worse than in "The Vicar of Dibley" (1994) when it's announced there is going to be a special service for animals in the parish:
Letitia Cropley: The question is whether I bring the snails I've got for my new recipe.
Frank Pickle: What recipe is that?
Letitia Cropley: Bread and Butter Pudding Surprise.

Everything was just dandy until I read that last ingredient. :sick:

It sucks that the recipe takes dried earthworms. You don't see them anywhere and I don't have a dehydrator. Doesn't anyone has a recipe with fresh earthworms?

@Yudith -- I'm sure you could substitute ground slug jerky. I'd advise against using dried rat flakes -- might be a little too spicy.

Hey, at least it’s not one of those vegan recipes...
