I LOVE meals and I LOVE video games – so when my RPG gaming group determined to do a Christmas Fallout Particular (we’re enjoying the Modiphius D20 Fallout sport with some homebrew upgrades)… I knew I wanted to make some very particular Fallout meals!

Sure, that’s Dimi holding the Modiphius Fallout E book, and my messy kitchen within the background!

I do know, I do know, there’s a Fallout Cookbook. However once I appeared over the accessible on-line pages, I used to be a bit upset. The recipes had been quite… tame. And my gaming group has launched meals ourselves that’s now canon and which, in fact, received’t seem in another person’s e book. So I made a decision to DIY it. Some stuff from the sport, some stuff from our personal desk. You’ll be able to see above the way it all appeared!

My Fallout Meals Menu

Simply to be clear, I like to feed individuals and I really like leftovers so there was WAY an excessive amount of meals! However right here’s what was on my Fallout Meals Menu for our six-person desk:

Pre-lunch Snacks:

Earlier than lunch we had the primary half of our sport, so I provided up a set of snacks to maintain individuals going.

  • Potato Crisps (Fallout New Vegas)
  • Cheezy Poofs (Fallout 2)
  • Radioactive Gum Drops (Fallout New Vegas)


As soon as the primary half of the sport was finished (leaving us on an acceptable cliff-hanger!) all of us dived into the starters. And hooo there have been a variety of them!

A charcuterie & cheese board of:

Squirrel Bits (Fallout 4)
Blue Bighorn Cheese (Fallout New Vegas)
Headhunter’s Headcheese (Fallout 76)
Potted Meat (Fallout 4)
Mutated Maul-rat Poop (home-game canon)

A ramification of:

Pink Meals Paste (Fallout 4)
Thick Crimson Paste (Fallout New Vegas)


Dandy Boy Apple salad
Desert Salad (Fallout New Vegas)
Tayto-Mayto Salad (home-game canon)

A basket of

Razorgrain Bread & Crackers (Fallout 76)


Blamco Mac and Cheese (ALL Fallout)
Brahmin Stew (home-game canon)
Tayto Mash (home-game canon)
Greasy Prospector Pork n’ Beans (Fallout 3, Fallout new Vegas)


Fancy Lad Snack Truffles (Fallout 4)


Nuka Cola (ALL Fallout EVER)
Irradiated Water (Fallout New Vegas)
Tenpenny Tower Wine (Fallout 3)

What recipes did I exploit for my Fallout Meals Extravaganza?

So, how did I put collectively this large Fallout Menu?

I used a mixture of “look-a-likes” (i.e. appears like the unique, doesn’t style like) and recreations (i.e. appears like and tastes like). The rationale for this? A number of the stuff within the Fallout universe I might NOT need to eat! you Pink Meals Paste and mysterious Thick Crimson Paste. I additionally added some supplementary dishes, utilizing canon components in a brand new means. You understand, as a result of scurvy is actual and other people want veggies.

Basic Fallout Meals Recipes Recreated

The recreations part of the Fallout Meals Menu had been pretty straightforward (recipes linked). These had been rendered fairly faithfully to the unique idea of the dish (besides, you already know, radiation free and attractive).

Blamco Mac and Cheese – in fact – comes from EVERY Fallout ever! I really like Mac and Cheese from scratch and grew up with it, however it’s not quite common the place I stay now. I made it really feel additional Fallout by including some fried bacon and onions and garlic, to present it a “soiled” look, which was actually scrumptious!

Fallout food desert salad

Fallout Desert salad – it appeared quite bland so I added an excellent French dressing dressing and a few additional veggies like inexperienced onions for flavour.

Greasy Prospector Pork n’ Beans is a typical from Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, and pork and beans (and tinned meals usually) is a typical trope of the post-apocalyptic style. Since I’m not a fan of tinned, processed meals, I made butter beans in tomato sauce (a dish referred to as Gigantes, in Greece) from scratch and added rustic spiced sausage for the pork component. It was DEEEELICIOUS! I used my very own recipe, however this one is analogous. Simply add chopped Italian/Greek sausage once you’re frying the onions.

The Desert Salad from Fallout New Vegas was made just about as pictured within the sport. Because it primarily seems to be tomato and leaves, I threw in just a few additional greens (corn, cucumber and inexperienced onion) to present a bit extra selection and added a wine vinegar French dressing.

For the Blue Bighorn Cheese from Fallout New Vegas I used Stilton cheese (certainly one of my favourites). Another blue cheese, like Roquefort or Gorgonzola, would work simply as effectively.

The snacks – Potato Crisps (Fallout New Vegas), Cheezy Poofs (Fallout 2) and  Radioactive Gum Drops (Fallout New Vegas) – had been precisely what you’d count on. However I obtained kinda fancy with the packaging (extra on that beneath), and even made a sweet field!

Nuka Cola – tremendous straightforward. This was common Coca Cola with labels caught on (labels beneath).

Irradiated Water – very lazy! I simply used water carafes and labelled them.

Tenpenny Tower Wine – once more, I discovered some AMAZING labels on-line (linked beneath) for the wine, and simply caught them on the wine bottles. Should you don’t like alcohol in your desk, stick them to grape juice as an alternative!

Look-a-like Fallout Meals

Then got here the extra “inventive” part of the menu. How do you make squirrel bits with out squirrel? And what about Pink Meals Paste? That’s obtained a Soylent Inexperienced vibe I don’t wanna mess with. Right here’s what I got here up with that LOOKED like Fallout Meals however nonetheless tasted good. You would completely customise all this to your individual preferences.

Pink Meals Paste (Fallout 4) was a fairly straightforward repair, really (despite the fact that within the Fallout sport, it’s imagined to be addictive and trigger aggression). Taramasalata is a Greek dip fabricated from cod roe, it’s simply accessible pre-made from the delicatessen, and it’s typically considered scrumptious. I really don’t prefer it a lot, however everybody else does!

Squirrel Bits (Fallout 4) grew to become a mainstay of our RPG sport, so I HAD to include them by some means. In the long run, I used Polish cabanossi sausages lower into chunks. As a result of they’re skinny, I felt like they’d an excellent “weight” for squirrels. And since they’re smoked and dried, they’ve a barely “shrivelled” high quality that makes them really feel very Fallout! Another type of smoked sausage would work nice for this – if it’s fatter, chop it into skinny strips to make it really feel squirrely!

An in depth up of the cheeseboard on my Fallout Meals Meal, showcasing the Cram, Headhunter’s Head Cheese, Pink Meals Paste, Blue Brahmin Cheese and (behind the cram) Thick Crimson Paste!

Potted Meat (Fallout 4) was a simple sub – I used pate! It went very well with the bread, cheese and salad of the starter.

Cram – now that’s a tough one. It’s a tinned meat that seems in Fallout 3 and all the next Fallouts. The packet (see proper) makes it seem like scrumptious smoked/roasted ham, however it’s clearly a parody of Spam. And if you happen to’re not conversant in Spam, it’s a processed, reformed, preserved pork product – and it’s fairly slimy and gross. I needed to choke it down as a child (college meals). I used to be NOT going to serve this as much as my group. In the long run, I made a decision to go by the image not the outline, and located a scrumptious smoked ham joint.

Headhunter’s Headcheese. Within the Fallout sport, it’s fabricated from thriller meats. Not on my desk. However the concept of “Head Cheese” is one thing that crops up in Greece and the Balkans – it’s one of the best cheese, the best high quality. In order that’s what we ate – kefalograviera (kefalo – head, graviera – the kind of cheese). There’s ANOTHER type of Headcheese which is a Dutch recipe of boiled animal head suspended in gelatine (type of just like the Victorian meat in aspic). This can be what this was based mostly on initially, however it was going to be a LOT extra work. So I skipped the boiled brains and caught with scrumptious cheese.

Thick Crimson Paste was launched in Fallout New Vegas. There’s not a lot details about what it tastes like, solely that it’s confiscated by Caesar’s Legion. By that logic, I reckoned it needed to be too good to be true, so I used my customary spicy chutney recipe (I name it Dragon’s Breath Chutney). It’s candy and bitter, spicy and scrumptious, and went very well with the charcuterie and cheese. Let me know within the feedback if you’d like the recipe – it’s bloody marvellous and goes with all the things.

I used Fancy Lad Snack Truffles packaging (see beneath!), however changed the within of the field with these scrumptious Greek cookies as an alternative!

Fancy Lad Snack Truffles (Fallout 4) are principally Twinkies. These don’t exist in Europe (sorry, People!). So I needed to get inventive. I already had actually good packaging for these (see beneath) so I felt like I might use somewhat inventive licence with the precise meals. They’ve wonderful, melt-in-the-mouth cookies right here lined in powdered sugar (kourabiedes) which I used as an alternative (pictured proper).

Supplementary Fallout Meals

And at last, as a result of I wished to spherical out the meal (this ISN’T the apocalypse and we DO have contemporary meals!), I additionally launched some issues that used canon components in a brand new means.

Razorgrain exists in Fallout 76, however I’ve by no means seen Razorgrain Bread. Nonetheless, it is smart, proper? And with all these scrumptious cheeses and meats, we wanted a bread basket. I used a seeded bread to present it that rustic, post-apocalyptic really feel.

Dandy Boy Apples crop up in Fallout quite a bit. Fom context, they’re principally sweet apples. However we had loads of sugar on the desk already. I took some liberties right here, and made a second salad as an alternative. And so the Dandy Boy Apple Salad was born. I used bitter apple, walnuts nuts, grated carrot, child leaves, steamed beetroot and a balsamic vinegar dressing, however you might simply change this up. The beets gave it an actual “sweet pink” color I preferred quite a bit (and so they go very well with apple and inexperienced onion).

One of the iconic animals in Fallout is the two-headed cows, the Brahmin. And I’ve discovered recipes for Brahmin steaks, burgers, noodle soup and extra! However steaks and burgers are a bit difficult to do for a desk – one thing like stew is quite a bit simpler. Plus you may make it forward (as a result of, you already know, I deliberate to spend the morning enjoying Fallout!). So voila – Brahmin Stew! I primarily made a beef stew that’s typical right here in Greece referred to as Stifado, with little pearl onions, crimson wine, and a TONNE of flavour. It disappeared. Right here’s a fairly good recipe just like what I made. It’s even higher if you happen to make it just a few days early.

An in depth up of the Tayto-Mayto Salad, Tayto Mash (on the again), Desert Salad, Pork and Beans, Nuka Cola and Blamco Mac and Cheese!

And at last, Tayto Mash and Tayto Mato Salad.

These are unique recipes from our residence brew video games. We’re enjoying Fallout in New York, and the native farm grows nothing however tomatoes and potatoes. So what do they make? Potatoes and tomatoes!

For the Tayto Mash, I wished one thing extra thrilling than simply mashed potato with tomato juice. That sounded preeeeeeetty boring as a recipe. So I made a creamy mashed potato and spiced it up with crimson pesto. It was too scrumptious for phrases. No want for a recipe for this – simply combine crimson pesto with a basic mashed potato to your style. It’s that orange dish in the back of the image on the precise.

For the Tayto Mato Salad, I recreated a recipe from my youth – Italian potato salad. I realized a variety of my cooking abilities from two Italian grandmothers in Southern Italy and this was a fully customary dish – boiled potatoes, tomatoes, very thinly sliced onions and a robust French dressing with superb olive oil. Once more, you don’t want a recipe for this – simply mix the components to your style and luxuriate in. You’ll be able to see that within the image to the precise!

My Fallout meals labels for Fancy lad snack desserts and radioactive gumdrops, proven towards Fallout Roleplaying Sport Character sheets

Printable Fallout Meals Labels

Listed here are the Printable Fallout Meals Labels I both discovered on-line, or made myself.

  • The wonderful Tenpenny Tower Wine Label made by the artist moltonel7. Able to print out and stick onto your wine.
  • The identical artist additionally made this wonderful  Radioactive Gummies field! I made this one simply from printer paper, so it was a bit delicate. Use card inventory for one of the best consequence right here.
  • This weblog has the Fallout Pork and Beans Printable Label, and an excellent Nuka Cola label. It has another Printable fallout meals labels I didn’t like as a lot.

My Fallout Meals Printable label for Potato Crisps! It ought to come out about the identical measurement as a bag of chips once you print it.

  • I used this Blamco Mac and Cheese label. Because you don’t serve it in a field (a minimum of, I didn’t!) I simply wanted a flat panel as an alternative. I caught it on a chopstick to stabilize.
  • This was the Printable Cram label I used, though I solely used one picture panel (for a similar purpose as above!)
  • Right here is the Fancy Lad Snack Truffles Printable Label I used. Like with the gummies, if you wish to flip it right into a field, ensure you use card inventory! My cookies already got here in a field from the baker, so I simply caught the printed model over the field with sellotape.
  • The Spring Valley Potato chips had been a little bit of a difficulty. In the long run, I created this label (proper) myself, printed two out, and caught them to both facet of the chips bag.

For the opposite Fallout Meals labels I used card inventory and wrote the names on (together with costs in caps!). If I’d had extra time, I’d have printed out footage of all of the meals within the sport and caught them on too, however I used to be sadly too busy with the World Anvil day job! Tooth picks or chop sticks had been nice mounts for these, with only a piece of sticky tape. For the Pork and Beans, which I served straight out of the inventory pot, I printed off an enormous label and caught it straight onto the pan, as if it was a large tin.

So, would I make one other Fallout Meals meal? YES! Our gaming group liked it. Me too.


Would you want me to do one other fantasy meals put up? Need particulars for any of those recipes? Let me know within the feedback!
