Taco Bell Launched Breakfast In a Hilarious Way

Taco bell has done it again. Taking the internet by storm by announcing they will be offering breakfast at many of their locations. They are a bit late to the game as McDonald’s, Burger King, every deli in the world and even Subway have all beaten them to the punch. Taco Bell needed a way to break into the  market. After a bit of research into their approach, we realized that they’re willing to say and do almost anything to make “breakfast” and “Taco Bell” synonymous with each other. Below we outline some of their launch tactics.

1. Teased the world with a sausage, egg and cheese waffle taco picture.

2. Hilarious TV ad that poked fun of their competition.

3. The CEO told Canada it’ll  get breakfast once they take Justin Beiber back during a Reddit AMA.

4. Sending SI Swimsuit smokebomb Chrissy Teigen a cellphone as part of their “secret mission” campaign.

Is their campaign going to work? We’ll know soon. After all, their sales in Colorado have increased 420% (heh)after the legalization of marijuana.

Make sure its deep enough
#thatswhatcheesesaid

STEP 2: Prepare your vegetables

Mince up that pepper, onion, and garlic cloves. I use a food processor, but you can use a chef’s knife or invest in one of those convenient food choppers that cost around $20. Throw the ingredients in a strainer to reduce some of the water.

STEP 3: Prepare your cheese

You can buy cheese in blocks like I did and use a grater, or go about this the BRO way and buy shredded cheese from the grocery store.

3 types of cheese – sharp cheddar, white cheddar, and pepper jack

Rub it on the grater #thatswhatcheesesaid

Rub it on the grater until there’s nothing left #thatswhatcheesesaid

STEP 4: Ready the Bacon

Take a large stock pot, turn up the heat to medium, and throw in 5 slabs of bacon, chopped into 1 inch by 1 inch bites. Feel free to cook more than 5 – you can’t ever have enough bacon. Once it’s cooked, take the bacon out and drain on a paper towel – be sure to leave some of that awesome grease in the pot to build a base of bacony-flavor for the soup!

STEP 4: Cook the Veggies, add butter and flour

Toss in your garlic, pepper, and onions. Let these cook until transluscent bro. (about 8 mins). Then toss in the butter, and once that’s melted – throw in the flour and stir.

STEP 5: Get your bread bowl ready

Take your bread bowl and put some olive oil on the inside of the bowl, and on the underside of the top. Throw it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the bread has hardened. #thatswhatcheesesaid

The Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Was The Worst Food Experience Yet

 Here on OMG Let’s BBQ we love writing about our food experiences. Whether it’s going to Philly for cheesesteaks or dipping Oreos in milk with a fancy stick – we write about it. Today we bring you Pizza Hut’s Stuffed Crust Pizza.  If you watched TV in the last 3 months, I’m sure you have seen the mouthwatering Pizza Hut commercials promoting the cheese-stuffed crust pizza.

Since the first time I saw this, I knew I needed to get my hands on it.

I’ll be honest, living in NYC for the last few years I have been spoiled with the best pizza in the world. This weekend I rolled out of bed after a long night and knew today was the day. For some reason, Pizza Hut only has two locations in NYC, Times Square and Harlem. I’m not sure why that is. Do they know their pizza can’t match any of the 35 million Ray’s Original Pizza, or are they playing hard to get? So, hopping on the subway hungover, I was ready. Got up to the counter and ordered a large stuffed crust with pepperoni and two waters. $30. 20 minutes later, I opened the box to this.

Looks pretty good right? The actual pizza part was bearable – your typical pizza. Once I got up to the crust, things went downhill. The cheese was not cheese. I don’t know what they used but it tasted and looked like salty goo. I not only needed both waters to keep down the two slices, but I needed a solid 15 minutes starting into space before I had the mindset and strength to leave. 4 hours later and I think I’m almost fully recovered. I needed a few beers to forget about what I just ate.  I will not be back.

Have you tried the stuffed crust from Pizza Hut? Let us know how your experience was in the comments.

What I Learned Taking A Trip To Philly For Cheesesteaks

The winning Cheese Steak

This past weekend, I took a trip from NYC to Philly. After oversleeping my bus on the morning of and convincing the Chinatown bus company that I pushed my ticket back earlier that day (totally did not) I found myself in Philly two short hours later.

 

After a little browsing around some of the historic buildings and of course the Liberty Bell, I headed down 9th street to where the infamous Geno’s Steaks and Pat’s King Of Steaks were located. I knew by the end of this trip, one winner needed to emerge between the two. After making sure I knew exactly how to order (I’ve heard the guys can give you some attitude if you don’t know the lingo) I ordered a “Steak Wit Wiz” from both places.

 

I sat down on the benches in what seemed to be 0 degree weather. Neither place had indoor seating. Both of these were amazing inside and out. Pat’s steak has a distinctive different taste and a thicker whiz, while Geno’s had a lighter whiz. Geno’s was the winner in my opinion.

Pat’s really took the idea of hot peppers over the top. I’m a fan of spicy food and it’s not common to have even hot sauce at condiment counters, it was a pretty nice touch. 192.168.l.l Points to Pat’s.

Being a 24 year old, I obviously documented the experience and posted in on my Instagram.  I’m friends with a lot of people from NY, NJ and PA and boy did I not do my proper research. headers check . From Jim’s Steaks down the road to DiNiC’s closer to the heart of the city  and then this place called Ishabibbles? Looks like I need to take another trip soon. Who’s coming with me?

 

Let me know where your favorite cheesesteak from Philly was in the comments or if there are any other places I should try.
