Jesse and Sarge's favorites


Sarge's Beef Brisket

Wrap tightly in 3 layers of foil
Bake @ 225 degrees for 6 hours.
Slice meat cross grain

Sarge comes from Texas and so does this weight gainer. Store the pork in a Tupperware container and take it to work so you can make your buddies jealous watching you eat this mass monster delicacy!

Pull pork w/ forks

Massive Meat Loaf

Meat loaf is the best left over in the world, so don't be afraid to double or triple this recipe just to make sure you don't get hungry while your cooking the next batch. Our motto with meat loaf is '2 pounds a day keeps the smallness away!'

Strongman Scramble

This is your basic mass builder breakfast. Jesse says that nothing beats eggs, oats and milk for gaining weight. Cream cheese is optional unless you're a hard gainer, then it's mandatory.

8 eggs
¼ chopped onion
Handful of fresh spinach
3-4 chopped mushrooms
1/3 cup of cream cheese
1 tsp olive oil
Add olive oil to hot pan
Fry onions and mushrooms until soft
Add eggs, spinach, and cream cheese
Scramble until cooked


Totally organic Oatmeal

Oats are one of the best carbohydrates you can eat. Don't ruin them with a bunch of sugar and butter. Add one or more of the following as substitutes and you're body will thank you! Serve unlimited amounts of oats with the Strongman Scramble.

As much oats as you can manage to swallow!
10 berries
10 walnuts or almonds
Sweet and low (go easy on this stuff)
1 tablespoon flax oil
¼ cup Raisins or any chopped dried fruit


Secret Ingredient Steak

1 tsp Paprika
