Nice man... I've never dry aged myself, though I've eaten it tons of times. Totally worth the work.

Napkins are actually a pretty slick idea there. Assuming it's an induction cook top they won't catch fire, and he'll be able to clean spills instantly, rather than waiting for everything to cool down like the rest of us schmucks. Wish I could do that.

It's not an induction stove (I wish) and I suppose it would be an issue, as BF suggests, if I were to turn on the stove and walk away, but guess what I never do?! Also, I typically move them to the counter when cooking on the stove top.  :biggrin:

I'll post these here as well so those of you who aren't on my FB can hate me as well...

Had a guy come in to do a tasting for our executive pastry chef position, some of the best desserts and breads I've had, and collectively this was easily the best tasting I've been part of. This guy was fucking nails man, everything so clean, crisp and perfectly executed.


In the culinary world, this is how you get hired my friends...

So how much time and money did the guy invest in this resume? Was it worth it for him?

All the ingredients were from in house, he paid nothing. The cooking took three days total, if he ends up getting hired I'd guess hell be making between 80 and 90 a year.

Yet once you break the seal and start eating, you can't stop.


That's one of the coolest things about my job. You get satisfaction twice. First there's the "omg it's so beautiful I don't wanna touch it" part followed by a moment of pictures and Instagram post, all decorum and formality still intact. Yet once they dig in and get the killer flavors hiding in the artwork, the instinctual, animal side takes over followed by ten minutes of grunting and snorting, ending with the remnants of sauce being mopped off the plate. I can sit in the kitchen and follow the process, knowing full well that their breakdown of form to that animalistic state was because of my work.

As great as that is, what my mother always complained about while I was growing up and cooking dinners for a family of 6 every night, was that after all the hours of work, it's gone in 10 minutes and then back to work cleaning it up.  So much effort and then we pig out so quickly.  My family are fast eaters, but I can only imagine how much I'd eat and how quickly I'd eat it if you presented those plates to me.  Hence why I am over weight.

On today's lunch menu, I made bacon egg and cheese on toasted wheat bread. I also threw on some guacamole. So damn good

I definitely approve of the sandwich. I also approve of guacamole on that sandwich. I do not approve of that guacamole, though.

It looked like taqueria green sauce, which rules, but in that amount would have rendered the sandwich inedible to all but the heartiest of Mexicans.

BIG fan of the [protein] egg and cheese sandwich; I don't care if it's ham, bacon or sausage.  I like a thin slice of tomato on there as well.

Here's the question, though:  the egg.  Scrambled (as it looks like in that photo) or otherwise?   me, I'm partial to an egg over medium; I want that yolk to ooze and drip down through the sandwich... that could be on the menu for my last meal.

Personally, I'm not an oozing yolk guy.  I go scrambled, or maybe like a mini omellete with the cheese melted inside when I make breakfast sandwiches, and of course the added protein (ham, bacon, sausage, pork roll  ;D )

One of my favorite dishes when I travel to Amsterdam is uitsmijter which is essentially an open faced egg sandwich, with the eggs oozing with yolk.  As much as I'm not into that, I really enjoy this.  Maybe it also has to do with the place I go for it, but it's really good.

The good news is that you right. Never heard of Taylor ham. The bad news is that I don't know what the fuck a pork roll is, either. Looks like Spam to me.

Can't be afraid of a runny egg. It takes away too many wonderful things.

Love me my fried egg sammiches. 3-4 days a week easy. Runny yolk is best, but sometimes I don't want the mess. A sunny side egg on a burger is to die for.

You know, I've never tried that!   I love a good burger and when I make my own around the house, it's usually a hit.  I might fry up an egg next time to see how it goes...

There's a place down here that does a CFS on top of two eggs over easy on top of home fries. The eggs pretty much disappear but make everything above and below that much richer. Pretty good shit.

One of my favorite beer spots in NYC does a brunch sandwich that's a piece of fried chicken with an over easy egg, sausage gravy, bacon, and cheese. Sofa King good.

That CFS immediately reminded me of our lunch in Dallas EB

Love me my fried egg sammiches. 3-4 days a week easy. Runny yolk is best, but sometimes I don't want the mess. A sunny side egg on a burger is to die for.

There's a new burger joint near work called BurgerFi (it's a new chain) and they have a breakfast burger:

Natural Angus Burger, American Cheese, Bacon, Maple Syrup, Fried Egg, Hash Brown, Grilled Onions, Ketchup

And it's really really good (although a bit expensive).  That was my first experience with an egg on a burger and it it can work really well.

People put eggs on burgers all the time down here, but if I want a burger there are a lot of other directions I'd rather go. Blue cheese and bacon. Swiss and shrooms. Green chiles. None would benefit from an egg.

Ozona does a pretty good CFS, but it doesn't come close to the one I posted. Even without the eggs/home fries it's still better.

So, what are y'all making for the Super Bowl today?

I'm making barbecue pulled pork sliders, but the twist is the barbecue sauce I made is blackberry based rather than tomato. The slider buns are pretzel rolls from Costco.  :biggrin:

Mrs.Jingle's b-day today, so that takes precedence over yet ANOTHER Pats SB.

Making a slow-cooker tuscan chicken.  Had the chicken marinating in white wine vinegar and some spices over night... adding sundried tomat's and artichoke hearts to it as well.  First time using this recipe, so I'm hoping it turns out A-ok.

Also, Belgian waffles and french vanilla ice-cream for dessert.
