Sorry, Ralphie, the bake-off
rejected your recipe.I think your grilled crayon
sandwich was delicious.You only had
a pretend bite.No, I’m eating it. Look.Mmm. Uhm…( grunts )Can you taste
the thumb tacks?Ah, crap.Andrew:
Hey, what’s up, guys?Welcome back to
“Binging With Babish,”and also, Rhett and Link.Today I’m in the “Good
Mythical Morning” kitchenand these guys are gonna
give me a hand or an arm–specifically two arms.Yeah, this is not
gonna go well.Today, we’re gonna be cooking
with an irresponsible amountof children’s art supplies,and testing the limits
of the term “non-toxic”with Ralph Wiggum’s
grilled crayon sandwichfrom season 15
of “The Simpsons.”Just like any grilled sandwich,
our crayon versionis going to be built
from the bread up.What a big bread. Andrew:
Care– careful now. – Rhett: Give me the knife?
– Link: There you go. – Andrew: Oh.
– Link: Here’s the knife. Andrew:We’ve opted for
a rustic sturdy country loaf
from a local bakerythat’s really going to stand up
to all this melted wax.It looks like Ralph
uses a store-boughtwhite pullman loaf
in the episode.– Link:
I’m trying to hold it tight.
– Andrew: Use your strength. Oh, God.
Watch your fingers.But he was also laughed out
of the oven fresh bake-off,and I think we can do better.We’re going to spread
a good amountof quality mayonnaise
on each side of the bread.The biggest problem with
eating melted crayonsis that all the wax gets stuck
in the back of your throat.Rhett:
Okay, that’s excessive.So the mayo is just there
to help everything
go down smoothly.Link: When in doubt,
spread it out.Then we’re gonna hit the bread
with a little bit of Dijon,use some really excellent
horseradish-y stuff.Crayons have a relatively
neutral flavorand they tend to coat
the palettein a similar way to fat.So any acid or spice you addis really going to carry
the dish.You guys are working
so good together. Link: Oh, yeah. You don’t
want too much mustard. Rhett: Yeah, a little mustard
goes a long way. Link: You don’t want it
to overpower the mayo. Crayons.Now, and I can’t
stress to youhow uncharted
this territory is to me,we need to pick out
a few good ripe crayons.Color isn’t really important,
just follow your heartand you use whatever combo
speaks to you in the moment.Work as a team.We’re going to follow
the scheme from the episode,which looks to be
bright yellow,orange, red,
light blue, lavender,and what’s that last one?
Fuchsia? Coral?Can you guys tell?– Link: No.
– Rhett: Green. – ( snorts )
– Colors.We’ll just call it pink.When it comes to crayons,
you have two options–skinless or skin on.Purists are gonna say
skin on,and that’s how it appears
in the episode,but for taste purposes,
we’re gonna go aheadand peel the crayons.It’s really weird
to hear your voice-over while this is clearly
in your mouth. Yeah, yeah.Once you have 20 or so
crayons peeled,place those as evenly
as you canon top of your bread
smeared with mayonnaise.– That fits beautifully.
– Link: Mm-hmm. – It looks great.
– It looks delicious. Link:
It looks like a rainbow.We’re gonna give it
a light sprinkleof coarse-ground sea salt…Link:
Double salt, bae?…because, I mean,
who knowswhy we do anything
anymore, right?Just put the other slice
of bread on top.Heat an ungodly amount
of salted butterin a heavy bottomed skillet
over medium heatfor about a minute
until the solidsstart to separate.Link: Ooh!
You just burnt my arm.The brown butter
is an attemptto make you forget
that you’re eatinga bunch of crayons.It will not work.
Like, at all.– Watch your hand.
– Do we want some mayo? No, God.Put the sandwich on the pan.You want to really press
your spatulaon top of the sandwich
to drive itinto the direct heatand make sure
the entire surface areaof the bread
gets nice and toasty.Don’t worry about melting
your crayonsall the way through.You can leave
a few undercookedto add textural contrast.We need to flip.
We need to flip. – Rhett: Okay.
– Link: Okay. Oh, boy, here we go.Flip the sandwich
after about five minutesand continue cooking
for an additional five.– Link: One.
– Andrew: Oh, you guys
are geniuses. – Or I’m a genius,
I guess, because–
– Link: Oh, no! – Rhett:
No, no, no, no.
– Link: Oh! Oh! Andrew:
Most of them–Pull the sandwich
off the heatand let it rest
for a few minutesbefore you eat it.
Now, there is one more elementto Ralph’s grilled
crayon sandwichand that is thumb tacks.Yeah, no,
I didn’t think so.Well, let’s eat this thing,
and may the food Godshave mercy on our souls.Mm-mmm. – Yeah.
– You guys earned this. Mm. Mm. Really tasting
that color. It said non-toxic on ’em.
I think that means edible. Are you guys
swallowing this? – Are you?
– I don’t think so. Link:Put a hat on it.A GMM hat to be exact.Get one at mythical.store.
