French-Style Soft, Spoonable Scrambled Eggs

I thought these were fantastic. I was in the mood for a runny egg and well this is not only a runny yolk, but the whole egg is. The first time I made double the size, they came out perfect. The second time I made the exact recipe.. they came out more soupy.. maybe I had the heat too low?

Anyway, the second time it didn't matter because I had a great idea of what else to do with this.. make Avegolemono Soup (egg lemon soup). Traditionally I guess it's made with just egg yolks, but I used this recipe. Here's why it works so well.. to make avegolemono soup I would whisk together my egg yolks, lemon, salt, and pepper, and then add a tiny bit of hot chicken broth.. slowly.. adding too much caused eggs to form/cook. This method was a pain in the butt.

This recipe made the soup a lot easier.. in one pot I was heating chicken broth.. in another pot making this recipe. When this recipe was done I just added it to the chicken broth and there was no worry about mistakenly making eggs.

Two-Minute Mayonnaise

Is king_cucaracha correct? More salt and more vinegar makes a thicker mayo? How does adding more liquid make something thicker?

Anyway, I only came here looking for an answer.. because I always make this mayo and it's fantastic as is, but I wanted to experiment with a different thickness. I was originally going to put a tad less oil, but worried the emulsion wouldn't work.

How I Got My Degree From Hot Dog University

I've heard of this for a long time being a member over on and talking in the hot dog forum, but this is the first real story I've read about it. Thanks!

The Food Lab: Homemade Greek-American Lamb Gyros

You know, this is a fantastic recipe.

I used 100% lamb. I forgot your remarks about bacon and left it out. Next time I am going to try it with a beef/lamb/pork mixture, since it's about the same price in the supermarket. They label it as meatloaf mix.

I think it needed more salt. Maybe that's a personal thing. You are right, though, not a lot of juices leaked out. I had let mine rest overnight.

I wanted to add marjoram and rosemary, but didn't want to spend the money on overpriced, small sized, supermarket brands, and the place where I buy my spices is closer to my work office than my home. So, I added Bell's turkey seasoning. It's got rosemary, oregano, sage, ginger, marjoram, thyme, and pepper.

I also added 3 cloves of garlic instead of 1.

The only thing is.. it took longer than 30 minutes to reach 165 degrees internally. Maybe it's because I made my loaf longer.

I tasted mine and it's fantastic. Except I'll be adding more salt next time. Not much more, maybe 1/2 tsp more.

You can see pics here:

I cut them thicker because I didn't have a sharp knife. Texture was awesome. Tomorrow just before lunch I'll broil them.

If I ever purchase a food truck like I want, this would definitely be on the menu. I want to start a hot dog truck, so maybe I could get molds and make my own gyro dogs.

Does Pre-Salting Make for Tougher Scrambled Eggs and Omelets?

I liked this post. I don't often think before I start cooking eggs. I just set the pan on, fry up some potatoes and spices, then fry the eggs in the same pan. Meanwhile the pot is too hot and this post tells me I need to slow down to make fluffier eggs.

4 Close-Up, High-Def, Insanely Awesome Shooter's-Style Sandwiches

The pictures were fantastic. I've made sandwiches like this with less layers and everyone loved them.

My first sandwich had some kind of sun dried tomato bread. In the bottom I shoved fried onions, salami, provolone, roasted sweet red peppers, and Ajvar (pepper spread).

The next time I did one with goat cheese, jezebel spread (apricot jam, horseradish, and mustard).

Don't Like Deep Frying At Home? Try the Philips AirFryer, a Convection Oven on Steroids

Sounds like a great idea, but the price vs. how much I'll actually use it is what would hold me back. Those fries do seem like work to make them.

I'd like to see someone to a review on the Quick N Crisp (I think that's the name). It's a grease less deep fryer, but it's like $1500. I don't know of any bars that have one.

My special hot dog available this month only..

Well, Hot Diggity already did a Greek Dog. So, one of the original ideas was to wrap the hot dog in falafel and fry it.. looked awesome, but the flavor of the falafel was lost because it got overpowered by the dog. So, my idea and stuff I was talking about kind of shared an Israeli theme.

I forget how to add pictures to a topic they never show up for me.. here you go:

Taste Test: The Best Sriracha

PS - While I love that Sriracha, the top on it SUUUCKS. Large hole and it gets very messy all over the top.

Taste Test: The Best Frozen Deep Dish Pizza

Uno's Potato Skin pizza is great. Reggio's was terrible. Average pizza. I found it (not deep dish) in Aldi here in New Jersey. The only thing Red Baron is good for, get them in the $1 store and use them as hamburger buns.

Hollendaise Sauce

It's actually not bad. It's not as lemony as I think it should be. I think in the 2 or 3 days since I heard about it, I've had 4 of them minus the ham since I don't like ham.

It's a little thick, but still dripped on my shirt while driving. That's when I hoped for what I really thought it was.. built in flavor (no mess).

Taste Test: The Best Sriracha

I found a new favorite!

First off, someone recommended me Thai and True Sarachee. It was very hot and I didn't totally like the flavor. I like hot food, but on it's own I didn't care for this sauce. I also ordered from the website I posted above, the Bee Free Honee and Thai and True Curry Paste. Both were AWESOME. The curry paste is the closest I find to what I get in a thai restaurant.

But back to the Sriracha. Texas Pete makes "Cha!" now. From the different sriracha's I've tasted I find it the most flavorful. If you shake it up, I also found it to be hotter than some other brands I have had.

I haven't tried all the brands in this taste test, but as of right now this is my new favorite.


Recipe for pickled sausage?

Thanks! I had Googled once a long time ago, but turned up with nothing. That looks good. If you don't like vinegar you won't like these. My friend won't let me eat them in the car they smell so bad he says and the single packages is full of liquid, so it gets all over your hands.

Jerky Bar?

I make my own jerky out of ground beef. When I brought it to work they said it was the best they ever tasted. I take mine out and baste it every hour. It takes longer to dry, but in the end it's worth it. They come out sticky like ribs, but the flavor is amazing.

My Pie Monday: Kimchi, Pickled Grapes, Barbecue Chicken, and More!

Pizzas are looking great.

@okaru: Thanks! Will try making them this weekend! Do you ever eat Indian pickle? I went to the Indian grocery store and bought some pickle masala.. spice ready to go. I had made grape awhile ago and also tomato. Just mixed with oil, pickle masala, and let sit in a jar.

How to Make Chili Oil?

Has anyone tried anything like this, but using some kind of mexican chili? I'd like to try a Ghost Pepper oil. How about Urfa Pepper? These are from Turkey I belive. They're dried in the sun, and then wrapped in a towel and sweated which gives them a really earthy flavor. It's not hot, but I'm thinking might make a nice flavored oil.

Recipe for dinner using Honeybell Oranges

I ended up making Orange Tomato Soup. I can't totally give you a recipe, because I Googled one and did a combination of that and I got lazy and did Campbell's. It had cumin, onions, bay leaves, and orange in it.

Old Pizza Memories

When I was younger I drove my bicycle up to get a pizza. I paid for the pizza, hopped on my bike, and the pizza falls to the ground in the parking lot. The owner gave me a new pizza at no charge. I always felt bad and wanted to give him money back, but it's been like 30 years and I know he wouldn't remember the incident.

Chain Reaction: Taco Bell's New Triple Steak Stack and Cantina Double Steak Quesadilla

I had a Triple Steak Stack and it was nasty. Just a thick flat bread with meat and cheese. Nothing else. Did not taste very good.

Has anyone had ground beef that kind of taste like throw up? I think it's the ground beef anyway. On a few occasions, I got something with ground beef. One time it tasted so bad I had to spit it out on the seat of my car where the Taco Bell bag was thankfully.. I think I missed some. I was driving and needed it out of my mouth pronto before I threw up. I think I was eating one of those portable Nachos, which is just seasoned beef, tortilla strips, nacho cheese, and sour cream.

I seem to remember having a bad tasting beef product another time as well.

Fast Food Chicken Dippin' Sauce Showdown: Popeye's Vs. McDonald's Vs. Burger King

Wendy's Honey Mustard is the best, but you should have had Chic-Fil-A on the list.. their Polynesian sauce rocks and so do their popcorn chicken.
