I joined the club today

I'm not normally a fan of the club sandwich, but I couldn't resist today. I walked into Redwood Deli knowing I wanted two things: egg salad and bacon. It's as if I were pregnant and egg salad and bacon were pickles and ice cream.

I had a feeling Redwood might have something along those lines, since they have about 20 menus on display. They added another one recently — the "stimulus" breakfast menu, featuring pancakes and something containing acai berries. Eventually I found what I believe was called the Bacon and Egg Salad club, and of course ordered it.

Despite being tainted with hateful amounts of filler lettuce, I enjoyed Redwood's bacon-egg sandwich thing with pickles. The bread was toasted and the egg salad was plentiful. It occurred to me that an egg salad sandwich with bacon and toast is essentially breakfast for lunch. While I refuse to eat lunch or dinner for breakfast (see reheated pizza), I wholeheartedly support breakfast meals for all-hour consumption.

What Redwood's done here is lunchize a bacon, eggs and toast breakfast, and I salute them. If they invent a lunchy sandwich involving pancakes and bacon, hugs are in order.

Will I continue to pay $8 for four wedges of bacon and egg goodness centered by coleslaw? No. Will I seek a way to pay far less for a way to eat eggs and bacon together for lunch for cheap? Yes. Stay tuned.

Don't forget that this sandwich includes a level of mess that is on the vurge of unacceptable.

Egg salad has never appealed to me, probably because I am not a fan of eggs... nor really of bacon. Oh well, I guess this sandwich is not meant for me. :) However, I WHOLLY support dinner for breakfast. Leftovers sometimes make the best breakfast. My sister even had a stint of eating Top Ramen for breakfast everyday... That was a little disturbing.
And I can't tell you how BAD I felt this morning after going out for coffee and paying $6!!!! Well, $6.09 to be exact. UGH!!! :(

Justin - I forgot about that. Egg salad everywhere. It so hellish I must have blocked that memory.

Vanessa - If you don't like egg salad or bacon, I'm sure you would hate this sandwich. Oh god, no. If I don't have access to breakfast food, I just go hungry until lunchtime. Why was coffee $6? Was it gold coffee?

Haha I wish I would have gotten a pic of your mangled face and hands covered in egg salady goodness. I will volunteer a mimic of the situation.

Review: Pepperhouse Gourmaise

Being that Big Condiment still seems to think Mustardayonnaise  is a joke, I've been forced to seek out a suitable alternative. This search led me to Boar's Head's " Pepperhouse Gourmaise " spread. According to Boar's Head, Pepperhouse Gourmaise is "real mayonnaise with a touch of Boar's Head Deli Mustard and a house blend of black, white, pink and green peppercorns." They also claim that it goes well with poultry, beef and pork. What a pepperhouse might look like if it were a thing ( photo by Justin Sachtleben ) I can confirm that it goes well with poultry and pork (or at least ham — I haven't tried it with any other pig-meats). And the quality of the ingredients seems to live up to Boars Head's high standards. As a black pepper kind of guy, I'm impressed by their fancy pink peppercorns. Still, I can't say I'm satisfied with B.H.P.G. Its color is off-putting and the peppercorns hurt my teeth. And while it's deci

Kewpie Mayonnaise: Disturbing but delicious

After years of waffling , I finally took the dive and purchased a bottle of Kewpie mayo. Kewpie mayo's premium price and disturbing packaging had previously prevented me from buying it, but Grub Street blogger Ian Knauer's Flavor Ammo post about it convinced me to give the baby-themed mayo a chance. For the unfamiliar, Kewpie is a popular Japanese brand of mayonnaise that's often found in gourmet specialty stores, such as Eastern District in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It's also currently available for 10 bucks on Amazon . The package features a standing baby that could easily serve as a homicidal doll in a horror story. Adding to the unease brought about by the package, the mayonnaise comes in a bag. I can't be alone in my belief that a bag is a completely inappropriate container for mayonnaise. Because of these setbacks, Kewpie mayo takes some getting used to. Now that I've come to terms with the unsettling packaging, I've probably topp

McCriollo: The Puerto Rican Egg McMuffin

36 drafted, unpublished posts and and half a year down ... it's time to start posting again. Let's start simple, with breakfast sandwiches and cultural differences. Last weekend, I went to Puerto Rico on a work trip, and had breakfast at the airport's McDonald's on my way back home . I really wanted an EggMcMuffin -- a favorite I haven't had in a long time. Yet the #1 combo on the menu offered only the mysterious "McCriollo," and there were no English Muffin sandwiches to be found. Apparently the advantages gained by the English muffin's nooks and crannies are under appreciated in the island of enchantment. Undeterred, I took the opportunity to find out what San Juan had to offer in the spongy anglo-muffin's stead. The McCriollo turned out to be about the same as an EggMcMuffin except on a decent chewy/crispy split bun. The name translates to "McCreole," which may make more sense in Puerto Rico, but sounded like wishful marketing to
