19 Breakfast Sandwiches We Love

If you ever come to the Phoenix, AZ area, you have to go to d'Lish in Scottsdale and get the California Club breakfast sandwich. Eggs, bacon, turkey, tomato, avocado, pepper jack, light cream cheese and pesto on delicious artisan bread... it has ruined me for any future breakfast sandwiches I may have.

Have You Tried the Wendy's Breakfast Menu?

I haven't tried it, but Wendy's even has a breakfast burger with egg on it. The paninis are good, but too greasy. And the breakfast sandwich on artisian bread is my favorite bfast sandwich.

Weekend Cook and Tell: Gateway Vegetables

Or if you didn't want to go the full eggplant parm route, try adding chopped eggplant to lasagna, OR use thinly sliced eggplant in place of the lasagna noodles. I love the flavor eggplant gives to dishes.

And most squashes are pretty yummy and go over pretty easily.

Thanksgiving ... So, how'd it go? Success? Hilarious failures?

@suburbanfoodie - We had the same thing happen... but my aunt then cooked the rest of the turkey in the microwave. No lie.

The best dish: The green bean casserole made with real cream and cheese instead of canned soup. And bacon!

My rolls were the bomb, thanks to Serious Eats talkers suggesting recipes. Thanks guys!

Hominy - yes please or no thank you?

Hominy is one of my favorite foods. Ever. Comfort food.

Thanksgiving bread/rolls recipe not involving a stand mixer?

Yum, thanks for all the recipe recommendations. I (stupidly, now that I think about it) didn't realize that a stand mixer was replaceable with good old elbow grease. I'm going to try out a few of these and see which is the winner!

Five Easter Treats, Rated in NOMs by a Candy-Loving Confectioner

Jellybeans! I am not picky about what kind, or flavor (as long as they're not the spice variety), but I love Easter because it's officially jelly bean season. I'll even eat the licorice flavored black ones.

In Season: Mangoes

The first time I've ever had a mango was on the beach in mexico, where we bought them on a stick, peeled and sliced like a flower, then covered in chili powder and salt. Amazing.

What's The Best Sandwich You've Ever Had?

The Red Stripe grilled cheese at Red Stripe in Providence, RI: Thick slices of bread, with proscuitto, pear, and basil, grilled to deliciousness. Yum yum yum.

Generic choices: Bhan Mi, Tortas, Cubans...

I'm a huge sandwich fan, though. It's hard for me to judge.

Technique of the Week: How to Cream Butter and Sugar

SeattleRadChick - I thought the same thing! It looks so close to perfect raw cookie dough, I was tempted to reach my finger out to try some.

Serious Beer: Now in Cans

Papago Brewing in Scottsdale, AZ also has a great canned beer. I just can't remember the darn name of it.

Why do I love pizza so much?!?

I could eat pizza for every meal and probably never get tired of it. I'd miss other foods, but that would be the sacrifice that I'd have to make.

Phoenix: Impossibly Airy, Amazingly Awesome Pancakes at Matt's Big Breakfast

I think us Phoenicians need to compile yet another list of amazing places to go around here. I'm always looking for new restaurants to visit. My recommendation: The Orange Table in Scottsdale. They have jalapeno pancakes!

Are you an 'everything but the bird' or a 'turkey' person?

Stuffing stuffing and more stuffing! I think it's because I really only get to eat it a few times a year (Stovetop doesn't come close!), so I like to fill up on that. I'll eat a little bit of everything, but stuffing is the only thing on the plate that I truly love.

Reminder: In-N-Out Anniversary Rumor Is Not True

Animal Style Fries = True Love.

I always have to order...

I'm with Stripey - ALWAYS a Caesar Salad. I think it says a lot about the restaurant.

Who's Hotter? Young Colicchio vs. Young Bourdain

Bourdain! He looks like he was one of the bad kids, while Colicchio looks far too wholesome for my taste.

Despaña: A Superb Secret Sandwich Spot

Holy... I feel like this might be my Mecca. Bread and spanish meats? Sign me up.

Starbucks Has New Lids! And They're Bad!

They are actually reformatting the new lids so that this doesn't happen. Ask for a bigger straw until this happens and it won't get smooshed.

Reviewed: New Hershey's Kisses Pumpkin Spice

I wish that they sold smaller bags of Kisses. I'd like to try all of these different flavors, but not enough to buy a big bag full of them...

'Why Does Sonic Advertise on TV When There's No Sonic Near Me?'

@ megannesta: Don't be so disheartened. I'm a former Rhode Islander living in Arizona which is a newish market for DD. I've been to a few of the Dunks out here and it's just... not the same. Sigh.

I miss my giant iced coffee and cheap bagel sandwiches....

Peanut Butter Slices

And according to Thursday Night Smackdown, PB Slices were the brainchildren of students at Oklahoma State:

Can Bananas be a Diet Food?

Uhm... what? Bananas are great for diets. You get your fruit serving and some fiber all rolled into one!

Bananas =/= Peanut Butter.

Marinating faux meat?

Thanks for everyone's advice! And thanks to producestories for the references, I'll be sure to check them out!

Morning Cocktails, When 'Rise and Shine' Meets 'Bottoms Up!'

Bloody mary made with tomato juice AND v-8, vodka (natch), lots of hot sauce, lots of pepper, horseradish, and garlic or jalapeno stuffed green olives.

I like it spicy!

Thanksgiving bread/rolls recipe not involving a stand mixer?

I've been assigned bread this year for our Thanksgiving meal, and instead of doing the usual Pillsbury crescent rolls or buying rolls and just heating them up, I'd really like to put my baking skills to the test and bake some rolls or bread from scratch. Problem is, every recipe that makes my mouth start to water involves a stand mixer. While I do hope to get one of these someday, I don't have one now and I definitely won't have one by Thanksgiving. Does anyone have a drool-worthy recipe that I can prepare without this wonderful kitchen appliance?

Marinating faux meat?

I'm trying to eat a little healthier and I get squicked out by raw poultry anyway, so I'd like to start using meat substitutes when making my dinners. I'd like to be able to use a marinade on my "chicken" but is this possible or even necessary?

I'm so lost.

Classic Wine and Cheese Combos?

I'm going to a wine and cheese party this weekend and I am absolutely befuddled as to what to bring. I'm not an expert in either department. What are some good and dependable wine and cheese combinations that can ensure that I don't show up with a box of Franzia and a can of EZ-Cheez?

Cinco de Mayo party food?

I'll be hosting a Cinco de Mayo party at my house next month, and I'm trying to come up with some different ideas for food and drink. It would mostly be snack type food, and not a complete meal. I just would like to stay away from typical choices for a theme like this: tacos, burritos, etc. But variations on those would be helpful too!

Plus, any drink ideas?
