The Endless Road Trip, Philly: Breakfast Sandwich of the Year

sandwich

 

A couple years back Endless Simmer took you to Philadelphia for an epic foodie road trip, taste testing everything from soup dumplings to Tastycakes. This week we’re returning to the city of brotherly love to find out what new foods Philly has on offer — and we were quite taken with several of Philadelphia’s newest restaurants.

Our follow-up on Philly’s five best new food items kicks off today with a breakfast sandwich that will make you forget it’s some ungodly low temperature outside.

Served at High Street on Market — a great farm-to-table find in the otherwise chain-y area near Independence Mall — the pastrami and has breakfast sandwich piles everything there is to love on breakfast onto one fresh-baked poppy seed roll: including a thick, extra-crispy square of hash browns (love that carb-on-carb action), a mound cheesy scrambled eggs, grilled red peppers, tender shaved pastrami and just a little Russian dressing, for a little Rueben-y kick to your morning,  along with a tart house-made hot sauce on the side.

I know it’s only February, but I’m confident saying this is the breakfast sandwich of the year.

Sweet & Salty Autumn Chopped Salad

Sweet Autumn Chopped Salad

Another fall evening, another delicious salad for us all to enjoy. This one has plenty of sweetness – cranberries, pears, pecans, slightly caramelized brussels – but the saltiness of the bacon evens everything back out. This salad works especially well as a chop, so don’t be afraid to dice everything pretty small!

Food Porn of the Day: Ultimate Hangover Sandwich

Ultimate Hangover Breakfast Sandwich Seattle

On a recent visit back to my hometown of Seattle, my friends and I were in a dire hangover situation. We needed greasy goodness but after a night of questionable “dining” choices (midnight quesadillas and – dare I admit it? Domino’s pizza) we also wanted something that was actually well-made and worth our time. No ordinary diner breakfast would do.

Luckily pub/restaurant Lot No. 3 had us covered. This is their grilled cheese (made with Beecher’s – some of the best cheese ever, also Seattle-based) with three important additions: a runny fried egg, caramelized onions, and BACON. But not just any bacon. House candied bacon. Be still my heart (literally, I think I had a mini heart attack while devouring this, but it was worth it). Plus, it doesn’t come with some bullshit salad on the side or whatever. It comes with a miniature bowl of tomato soup. TOMATO SOUP! What else could you possibly need when you’re hungo and hangry?!

Bacon, Lettuce, & KIWI Sandwiches

BLK Kiwi Sandwiches

Yes, it’s not a BLT, but a BLK! It’s so crazy, it just might work. The good folks at Zespri Kiwifruit sent me an email of kiwi recipes and this was one of their ideas – at first it seemed a bit controversial, but kiwis have kiiiinda similar textures to tomatoes, plus that zingy bite. Not too sweet or mushy. And I do love incorporating as much tropical fruit as possible into my summertime meals… another bonus for easy summertime cooking, when you don’t want to spend hours slaving over the stove – this takes about five minutes to make. Two thumbs up, kiwi friends!

Bacon Mania!

 

bacon club

Hey guys. Have I mentioned before that I like bacon?

No? I feel like I might have brought that up once or twice or 100 times in the past.

Well you won’t be surprised to learn that I was pretty excited to discover the new website Farmland Bacon Club. There are a lot of websites out there, but IMHO too many of them don’t focus exclusively on bacon. Farmland Bacon Club is 100% dedicated to celebrating all things smoked pig. It’s described as “a place where bacon lovers can connect, talk, taste, write, post, inspire, design, win, view, vote, like,  upload, download, create, in?uence, and share their passion.” Sounds like a good place to me!

From bacon and egg stuffed biscuits to bacon and beer pairings (YES!) to videos on  how to make the infamous bacon weave taco, they have it all covered. There’s even a 2014 calendar listing exclusively bacon-centric events. Now you can stop going to all those boring non-bacon-centric summer parties!

Yes, there are offline benefits to being in the Bacon Club as well — you can sign up to purchase Farmland’s Bacon of the Month, which delivers a new bacon to your doorstep once every month.

Follow @FarmlandFoods on Twitter for more up-to-the-minute bacon fun or go straight to the Farmland Bacon Club here.
