[Villains] The perfect villain casserole


Come Here and Hug Me

By JustMe

My addiction for K-dramas and cooking shows has given me an unofficial badge of expertise in the K-drama recipe field. Through extensive research and many tries, I have cracked the secret formula to making the perfect Villain Casserole. While the ingredients are very specific, there is room for change in the ratios presented in this recipe. I encourage you to try the recipe or change a few ratios in itβ€”at your own risk.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Servings: 16 (or 32 half servings)

Ingredients:
1 black baseball cap
3 teaspoons of troubled, evil smiles
Β½ cup of anger
1 cup of pride
2 teaspoons of ambition
3 tablespoons of unequivocally tragic, unfair backstory
Generous amounts of good looking sprinkles (Note: very expensive and rare)
A pinch of regret
1 ounce of weakness
1 tablespoon of nonchalance
1 cup of selfishness

Optional:
A sprinkle of pettiness
1 black face mask
A signature weapon (for example, a hammer)

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (or 175°C). Spray 9 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray. The brand I prefer best is Thick Skin©. Villains can be sticky and annoying. Having this brand of cooking spray helps me later during the cleaning phase as even the toughest of casseroles wash right off when you pre-spray.
  2. In a big black bowl, beat at medium speed the tragic backstory, pride, ambition, and anger. When there are no more distinct pieces, sprinkle in pettiness to add a bit of spice. Let it sit until the mixture becomes relatable. Make sure the room is dark for optimal evil brewing. When the villain’s intention and point of view is palpable in the air, the wet mixture is ready.

    Tip: Sometimes, it helps to leave music in the background when the mixture is rising. This helps the emotions form easier.

  3. In another bowl, softly sift the black cap and optional black mask. To make your villain less generic, other flavours of costumes are allowed. Like black pin stripe suits, long double breasted overcoats, and note-worthy haircuts. Please note that badly styled villains do not exist. If your style ingredients are not chosen correctly, you risk ruining your villain casserole and may end up with a lame misunderstood nuisance casserole, and no one wants to eat that twice a week.

  4. I like to add a defining point to all my villain casseroles. If my villain casserole is a murderer, add something original to the mixture like a hammer or poison. Nonchalance is a welcome addition to any casserole that aims for earthy realness. These additions should be folded into the dry mixture slowly. Don’t stir it in too much or your villain casserole might end up being annoying instead of enticing.

    Tip: Avoid adding bigotry into your mixture. Such villain casseroles are usually bland and nausea-inducing. It is a very hard ingredient to swallow.

  5. Mix together the content of both bowls. If you find your mixture to be too dry, add some humor and PPL (quantities at your discretion). This adds a pleasant cheesiness to your casserole without actually adding cheese. Your casserole will not only taste better, but you’ll find yourself enjoying it and looking forward to the leftovers.


    An Empress’s Dignity

  6. Sprinkle regret on top of the final product. Your palate is complex and so should be your casserole.
  7. Bake in a PPL oven for 45 minutes. When despair fills the air and the top is golden, your casserole should be ready.
  8. Depending on your ratios, your final villain should look something like this:

I’m assuming there will be a PPL brand premixed version where all we add are the good looking sprinkles and our optional style ingredients? I prefer to add stylish glasses and a maniacal laugh tasting note that only appears in the last few servings.

Smugness is a derivative ingredient of arrogance. If you reduce a bit of arrogance and add smugness im sure the flavors will balance out!

I also want to add that sprinkled regrets are vital to a good casserole, as the salt of tears is integral to clarifying and brightening all the other flavors. Your attention to detail is most appreciated.

Here's a secret ingredient i didnt mention. If you dont like your villain, add truck of doom to your recipe. If you like your villain too much, 4 cups of redemption turns your villain into a hero.

*GASPS*
Such lifesaving tips!
This secret will surely be helpful since my level of cooking will never reach yours. Now at the end of the day, I can be happy with whatever result I can get, a successful villain or a new hero. Even if all fails and the truck of doom must be used, I guess it’s just another chance to perfect the techniques and recipe to make even better ones. After all, this kdrama world can never have too many villain casseroles.

Ooouuuh it might work in the slow cooker. It allows the anger and frustration to boil together longer, enhancing their flavors and consequently, the experience.

On the other hand the InstaPot, a pressure cooker, can be an interesting way to finish the dish after a long marinade in (metaphorical) blood, sweat, and tears. A scoop of frustration as the recipe goes into the pressure cooker can really enhance the lingering after taste of each bite.

Every time you post about food, I remember that something called a 'hot dish' exists. But now I both want to know and not know what an 'InstaPot' is.

Hot dish is a regional word for casserole, therefore I am now imagining Hot Villain hot dish.

An InstaPot is a newfangled pressure cooker.

@egads Does the hot dish pair with a cold dish which I assume must include jello?

I know that many people make a thriller version of this casserole that involves a heavy slug of smug in the mix.

But, while common and popular, I find that version of the recipe to be unpalatable and generic. I've been known to wolf down my Smug Villain Casserole at speed rather than savouring it.

The smug ingredient is very tricky. It can be delicious and addictive, but also fattening and nausea inducing. It depends on the other ratios of your other ingredients.

The OTP dessert is deceptively complicated. Its seeming simplicity is what lulls people into thinking it's easy. But nothing is worse than an OTP dessert that falls apart at the last minute.

Your recipe is solid. If them scriptwriters still fail to make a good casserole, I dont know what to think really~
BUT...umm... I change the recipe a bit and my casserole come out a bit different...? Is it because of I kinda a bit too generous on certain ingredients?
Anyone who needs a very expensive and rare good looking sprinkles, I'm willing to talk~ #capitalist

Okay this is a serious question. What happens when you add a dash of supernatural to the above recipe? And how much of the supernatural ingredient makes a villain like the one in Possessed, who basically destroyed every single the good guy by the end of the show?

3
3
reply

Required fields are marked *

A dash will make your cassrole glow green which can be appetizing for some but off putting for others. Supernatural is bought in bulk bricks at costco (at least where i live), and you have to use a cheese gratter to put some shavings into your recipe. Too much supernatural risks making your recipe taste like cheap CGI which is just nasty. I refer you to the first airing of the second episode of hwayugi as an example.
