10 Firefighter-Approved Recipes
We talked with some of Milwaukee’s best to find out what real life firefighters are cooking up in their kitchens. Here are recipes inspired by their firehouse meals.
At Milwaukee’s Engine 27, every Friday is pizza night. They don’t mess around there—the firefighters make it all from scratch.
Swap out the lamb in this recipe for pork butt and you have an Irish stew that firefighter Mike McGill serves up in the winter months at Milwaukee’s Engine 27 and Ladder 5.
Firehouse chef Todd Peck made po’ boys big enough to feed a small army. If you want to make your own at home, try this family-sized (not brigade-sized) recipe instead.
On chilly days, Todd likes to whip up easy, hearty stews like a potato corn chowder. It’s a great stick-to-your-ribs starter. Serve up a big bowl with some bread and call it a main!
When it comes to side dishes, Mike says that mashed potatoes are a perennial favorite at the firehouse.
Is it even a firehouse kitchen without a good chili? We like this one because it’s hearty but quick to put together.
When the holidays hit, firefighters like to celebrate, too. For Christmas, you’ll find prime rib at Milwaukee’s Engine 27. Learn how to make the perfect prime rib step by step.
