? for those that make elephant ears
Thu, 09/17/09 11:09 PM
We've been asked to serve elephant ears with some other hot foods from our concession trailer at a kids event. We do have two double fryers, so I think physically it is possible, as long as we scale back our traditional menu to accommodate the demand that doing elephant ears will create.
The event is the 27th annual, and the parade draws about 3-4k people. The aftershow is two blocks from the end of the parade, with additional helmet safety stuff and other kid oriented happenings. They are expected to draw about a thousand of the people over after the parade. hours will be 11 -2pm.
We've settled on using a frozen white demi-loaf. They come 60 to a box and we have three boxes. We plan to cut each demi in half for portions, giving us a total of 360 pieces.
For those that have done ears, do you think this qty would be enough?
Can we pre-prep them ahead of time and how early can it be done (the day before?)
We plan to hand roll/stretch into about 10" sizes. What would be the best way to approach this?
Do you brush with butter then cin sugar? Or just dump in cin sugar.
Sorry for so many questions, but we figure at some point we should learn, even if it is not a regular offering for us.
Thanks for any help!!!
