You take some raviloi and dip them in breadcrumbs and then deep fry them.
Do you put any kind of sauce on the result?
I've had them with tomato sauce/marinara.

You know what bugs me, the miner guy's house. It's big and normal and full of matching plates and stuff. And the mayor's office does not look anything like the ramshackle town.. did they find the nice chairs and things in old St. Louis? Because they sure aren't going to be wasting resources making nice leather couches or whatever.
I wonder if they're going to do anything with the have vs. have not situation. Some of them are living in shipping crates and the McAwley's are living in a nice house.

For that matter, what are they eating? With what we've seen of the terraforming, I wouldn't be surprised if our staples were gone/mutated. For instance, salad, can they still grow lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, etc., or is it all alien vegetables? Or, even better, something not quite Earthen, but not quite alien, to reflect the effect of alien terraforming on our land. What about meat? Are they eating hamburgers, pork, etc. or something else?
We've seen meals being served at the McCawley household in both episodes so far. According to the "Inside Defiance" feature on the website (image 8), they're eating green-yolked eggs in one scene (not sure if they had ham, though). The text reads, "The genetic mutations brought on by terraforming killed much of the world's livestock and introduced some bizarre new species."

Given how much thought the creators have clearly put into the worldbuilding for the multimedia stuff, I'm sure it'll be explored on the show as well. I think that so far they've done a good job hinting at the larger world without being too stilted in the exposition and without getting in the way of the focus on character and story.
I hope they do. Thanks for the information. I realize the show is still new and they don't want to do too much exposition, but I feel something like that should warrant a little bit of dialogue. At least we learned a little about the effects of terraforming this past episode.

PS Does anybody know what they're mining? You would think it would be St. Louis, but that's not the way it sounded or looked in the last episode.
Gulanite. They mentioned it in the episode. The website showing the links between the game and the show that was posted here had a write up on it. It's what powers the alien technology we've been seeing.
