Awhile back I shared some prison recipes. Working on my last issue of the campus newsletter I was given the very recipes being shared at Christmas.

Canteen Recipes

Sometimes “Spreads” get old. Have you ever wondered how to make the most of your canteen items? We asked one of your local pod chefs if he would be willing to share some of his special recipes.


Ingredients:                                                               You Will Need:

1 Bag of Tortilla Chips                                               6 Bowls

2 Bags of Nacho Chips                                               Microwave

2 Bags of Hot Corn Chips

6 Chili With Beans

6 Sausages (chopped)

9 Squeeze Cheese                                                       Serves: 3 Bowls

Put a mixture of tortilla, nacho, and hot corn chips in the bottom of three individual bowls, but not too much. Then place all the chili with beans in three separate bowls. Divide four of the chopped sausages evenly into the three bowls of chili. Add water to the chili mixture so it won’t be too thick, and heat the mixture in the microwave for about two minutes. Pour just enough of the chili and sausage mixture into the three bowls to cover the chips. Then put as much cheese as you want on top of that. Next, mix more of all three chips together and place them on top to create a second layer. Then, place more of the chili with beans and cheese on top of the chips. Top the bowls off with the last two sausages. You’re ready to eat.

Cheese Cake

Ingredients:                                                               You Will Need:

22 Packs of Cream Cheese                                         3 Bowls

½  Bag of Hot Cocoa                                                  Microwave

1   Box of Graham Crackers                                       Freezer

6   Packs of Reeces

1   Milky Way                                                             Serves: 1 Bowl


In a bowl, crush up enough graham crackers to fill the bottom. Mix enough water in to moisten the crumbs (but don’t put too much water). Place the bowl of graham crackers in front of a fan to harden into a crust.

Meanwhile, in a second bowl, empty 11 cream cheese packs into the bowl. Break three packs of Reeces apart and add them to the cream cheese. Then pour a quarter of the bag of cocoa into the bowl.  Mix until everything is smooth and you can no longer see any chunks of Reeces. (This takes a lot of stirring.) Put the remaining 11 cream cheese packets, another quarter of the cocoa, and the rest of the Reeces in the cheese. Mix until it’s smooth like regular cheese cake, adding water as needed to make that happen. In another bowl melt the Milky Way and pour it on the cake. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Finally, place the cake in the freezer for four hours. Enjoy!
