Last night’s episode of “Frankenfood,” was titled, “Lone Star Cooks Cowboy Up.” As the introduction gives the description of “Frankenfood,” as a mash up of original and unexpected food combinations and ingredients, resulting in delicious dishes … or awful misses, one can only wonder what the chefs will be tasting.

As each contestant offers their food creation to Josh, Tony and guest judge, Jeff Dietzman, one of the restaurateurs behind this hot restaurant, they will choose the best dishes. The final two will be served at the restaurant where the public will decide the winner, whose dish will appear on their menu.

Brittney Schram & Kelsey Lauren Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders were next with their Game-Day Parfait. It contained; fruit, granola, yogurt, fried chicken, mac & cheese, bacon and mashed potatoes. Franken-Fail
After several more disgusting entries that hit the buckets, a few additional entries tried their luck.

Restaurant worker, Jesse Morris brought his B.L.T.T. containing; bacon, lettuce, tomato, croutons, jalapeno mayo and two yes votes.
Next, the four winners were mulled over by the judges and brought down to the two finalists. The choices were the Burghetti and PB & Jellumbo Shrimp PoBoy. So the chefs helped them tweak their recipes and presented them to the restaurant full of people.
