Today’s Scallion Breakfast Sandwich is quite literally a handful. Well, a mouthful actually. If you’re looking for a brunch you can eat daintily, find yourself a fruit bowl because this sandwich ain’t it. This beast features a creamy scallion studded egg patty perched on top of sautéed kohlrabi greens and crisp pancetta. The egg is topped with gooey havarti and a creamy radish kohlrabi slaw. And yes, I did rather precariously perch everything on a multigrain English muffin. And no, I’m not the least bit sorry.
Teriyaki Mushroom Melt with Red Cabbage
I have an affinity for messy sandwiches. If I’m not perplexed by how exactly I’m supposed to eat them, I’m not interested. Sure, I can get down with a polite finger sandwich and I’ll never turn down a pressed picnic situation like a muffuletta. But I love a juicy burger, a slippery BLT, and a towering hoagie. I want a “napkin-mandatory” sort of sandwich and today’s Teriyaki Mushroom Melt fits the bill perfectly. The word “saucy” is the aptest description for this sandwich. So let’s talk about it!
Stilton Burgers with Sweet Pickled Red Onions
The origin story of these Stilton Burgers is a long and frankly weird one. It involves a game my family invented where a crushed pop bottle is the ball. It’s best described as snow rugby but, um, with fewer rules. Yeah, it’s weird. Anyway, this was always the lunch of choice after our annual game. I won’t bore you with all the strange details. All you need to know is my family makes these burgers every year during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Its primary function is to make use of leftover Stilton and to have an excuse to cook outdoors. Snowy picnics are rad in case you didn’t know.
Big Mac Patty Melt
A Big Mac Patty Melt is a frivolous but wonderful thing. It’s definitely a recipe that doesn’t need to exist. It falls under the same category as deep-fried mac n’ cheese and fried chicken and waffles – recipes that are a bit much. But I’m willing to bet that there are moments in your life when you’re glad these over-the-top dishes are there. When the phrase “Don’t just eat a hamburger, eat the help out of it” couldn’t ring truer. And I had one of those moments last week when I made this Big Mac Patty Melt.
