Bacon Egg O’Muffin

What do you do when english muffins, bacon, and eggs are all discounted at the grocery store? This:

Bacon Egg O'Muffin, open configuration

That’s what the unfailingly polite B. E. O’Muffin looks like when he’s respectfully doffing his cap. And here’s what he looks like with that cap on. Either way, delicious.

Making the eggs sunny-side-up results in a delicious yolksplosion all over the place after (or, sometimes, before) the first bite. (Yolksplosion not pictured, because it would have involved subjecting my camera to collateral damage.)

London Broil is Falling Down

London Broil

. . . down my gullet, that is. I was at the store, buying cold cuts, when I absentmindedly ordered an entire pound of London broil. “How will I eat this all?” I wondered. Turns out I had no need to worry, because the stuff was absolutely delicious. Goes great on a sandwich (see above), especially with a nice dijon mustard. It also goes great by itself, eaten directly out of the package.

We happened to be in Manhattan, so my girlfriend insisted on treating me to a meal at Les Halles. Everything was delicious, other than the somewhat wilted salad greens. Also, it had to have been 90 degrees in there, and I’ve been to nightclubs where the music wasn’t as loud. But I digress — this isn’t a Yelp review, after all.

Anyway, point being, the appetizer we ordered was (a) fantastically tasty and (b) something we thought we could reproduce at home, even without buying Anthony Bourdain’s cookbook. The menu describes the dish as “Croûtons de Coulommiers rôtis au miel et poivre (Brie topped with honey & cracked black pepper, roasted and served on croutons)”, which is a rather apt description. (Yes, I’m making the executive decision of classifying this as a sandwich, albeit an open-faced one.)

Now, a week or two later, we tried our own hands at it, and decided to use a wedge of brie with pepper right in the crust. As it happened, we also had some mint leaves left over from the previous night’s mint-guacamole (tragically, not itself a sandwich). The end result was pretty goddamn good — as far as I’m concerned, we managed to improve one of Anthony Bourdain’s recipes. Take that! Seriously, though, it’s tasty. Try it out.

Another day, another exam. Ho-hum. The parol evidence rule(s); third-party beneficiaries; claims, defenses, and remedies under the UCC? Who cares — I’ve got this tasty “Tobacco Quay” sandwich from the overpriced deli by school. It’s basically just tuna salad, but it’s very well made.

Lemon-pepper chicken

Chicken cold-cuts are usually pretty bland. When I saw there was a special on “lemon-pepper” chicken, though, I dared to hope it might be flavorful, on account of the alleged lemon and pepper (have I mentioned that I really like pepper?) and whatnot. And indeed it was.

Scrambled eggs and ham

Got this at the municipal IHOP, because it was the most sandwichy thing on the menu. It’s quite breakfasty, mostly on account of the scrambled eggs, but it was perfectly fine for dinner as well. That said, my review of the sandwich is decidedly mixed. The combination of scrambled eggs and two kinds of melted cheese gave it a generally very goopy mouthfeel that the ham and bread did little to offset. Even worse, the bottom slice of toast was thoroughly soggy when it arrived, so it had clearly been sitting for a while before being brought out. Some of my complaints are directed towards the abstracted ideal of the sandwich, and some are directed towards the particular IHOP franchisee that served it to me, but it’s hard to tell exactly where to draw the line between them. The onion rings were fantastic, though.

Roast beef sandwich

I was at the grocery store when a beautiful loaf of rye bread caught my eye and began begging and pleading for me to make a sandwich with it. I tried to avert my gaze and continue down the aisle, but it was no use—I couldn’t get those shapely slices, those gorgeous caraway seeds, out of my mind. I went back and apologized for even considering being so heartless and cruel, proudly gave the bread the seat of honor in my shopping cart, and made my way over to the deli department to pick up some other ingredients of a similar caliber. No cheap stuff today; both the roast beef and the provolone (sharp, never mild) were Boar’s Head™.

And it was delicious.

Ham and cheese sandwich

Now that we finally have this long-anticipated blog up and running, it’s only fitting to christen it appropriately. Shown above is a ham and cheese sandwich I made to commemorate this momentous occasion. It was tasty, but unfortunately it’s been a while since I refilled my bread supply and I had to use one of the ends of the loaf.
