Unusual Food Thread

Hiya!

Me and two friends inadvertently created the most tasty...and messy!...snack during a 2e AD&D campaign we were playing back in mid/late 90's (our only 2e campaign, come to think of it...). What is it you ask? I present to you...

The Salsa-Muffin
  • 1 English muffin
  • Copious amount of REAL salted butter (don't bother with anything else... doesn't work).
  • Salsa...cold temperature, moderate to hot spiciness!
  • Cheese (I like Mild cheddar, but Old works too, but I up the salsa spiciness)

NOTE Requires the use of a stove or, best and fastest results, a toaster oven.

Preparation:
1. Toast your English muffin
2. Add generous (almost TOO generous) amounts of butter.
3. Place cheese slices (semi thick; say...2mm) on each muffin half.
4. Place in toaster oven and melt cheese.
5. Add MORE butter on top of melted cheese; you want it to be, literally, dripping off the edges.
6. IF butter isn't melted enough...toss it into the toaster oven again for a few seconds.
7. Dollop on a BIG spoonful of cold temperature, but mod/hot spiciness, Salsa (typically, about a "heaping tablespoon" per muffin half).
8. Take it all over to a sink to eat it there. Trust me...it WILL be messy! GLORIOUSLY messy!

Trust me. Best dang 'snack' you have EVER had!

You're welcome. :)

Nice!

I did something similar with a grilled chicken (sliced cold-cuts) & cheese sandwich, with the salsa spread out in a thin layer between the meat and chicken. The melting of the cheese helps trap the salsa on the sandwich.

Open steak sandwich and bowl of beer battered chips with aioli and ketchup.
The midwestern US is strange about Ketchup/Catsup. Some folks put it on eggs or steak or just about anything. But there are many (especially in Chicago) who will mock you for putting it on a hot dog. (It seems universally fine on a hamburger, but I can't even conceive of putting it on italian or polish sausage or a bratwurst).

I put it on hotdogs here, I think that's your corndogs.
On American hotdogs prefer relish over ketchup.

Ketchup on corn-dogs makes sense.

I do mustard and dill relish on (non-corn) dogs and sausages if making them myself.

Mustard, onions, and chili is a bit more work, but pretty commonly found when eating out (and good at campouts in cooler weather).

It's hard to find these done fully right outside of the Midwest:

Looks good, American style hot dogs kinda rare here. You would have to go looking to find them and they're gonna be basic.

I’m a big sausage-phile, but I don’t eat hot dogs much anymore. And catsup is becoming a rarer condiment for me to use.

But damn it, if I go to a baseball game, I guarantee you I will have at least one hotdog with catsup...if not twelve. 😂

I can’t say exactly why. I didn’t grow up a baseball fan- I really came to it in my 20s. And I didn’t go to many games in person. But every time I did go, I had to have at least one hotdog.

Beef/pork/beef & pork mix frank on a bun, yes.

Usually catsup & mustard for toppings at sporting events.

Elsewhere, I favor chili, cheese & onion; Chicago style; BBQ & garlic sauce...

But more often than any of that, I buy other kinds if sausage and treat them like hot dogs.

Can also be a sausage on a stick, normally it's a saveloy but that might be a regional thing.

The bun one called American Hotdog. Very original here.

Ye olde English pie refined to near perfection. Pies are savoury not sweet FYI USA

Peppered steak and Jalapeno cheese.

This pie was glorious, mouth is still burning. About as spicy as a hot vindaloo. Tasted great.
