New York Themed Shooter Sandwich for Super Bowl 48

Super Bowl 48 was yesterday and the entire country is still full. It’s almost as good as Easter, Thanksgiving or even Christmas Eve (my personal favorite). The OMG crew is currently compiling a list of all of the amazing food that was cooked over the weekend for a massive recap post. In the meantime, we wanted to share a really unique Shooter Sandwich  that was created by TheGreenShepard on Reddit. He created not only a Sandwich Shooter, but themed the ingredients for NY/ NJ Italians. Check out his photo recap below.

Friday Night Bake Session: GuacaFrohli Field For The Super Bowl

The below post is written by Jon Frohlinger. He will be contributing a variety a different type of content but mist notably, “Friday Night Bake Sessions.” A column where Jon documents his homemade dinner experiences. 
Well hello there friends and family!

Today on OMGLetsBBQ.com we are going over how to make a wonderful easy Guaca”Frohli” for your party needs.  Girls love guacamole because it has a lot of “healthy” fat.  Anything healthy they like.  But onto the recipe.

  • 6 avocados
  • 2 red onions
  • 2 beautiful beefsteak tomatoes
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 1 shotglass full of a soy sauce/mustard mix
  • 1 packet of shredded cheese
  • 8oz of Sour Cream
  • Salt & Pepper

Cut avocados and mash.  Cut onions super small.  Everybody always thinks they are putting too many onions in their guac, WRONG.  This is the key to the guac and you can never have too much. Cut tomatoes like tomatoes.

Put everything in a bowl and mix.  Then, twist the salt and pepper mill over the guac for about 12 seconds.  You should be able to see a the salt and pepper on top visibility to know you’ve got a solid amount.  Pop the mustard and soy sauce in and mix it up.

Now, for this go around in the Super Bowl spirit I decided to utilize the guacamole as the football field on top of my seven layer dip football field!!! I put some cheese for the end done, and put some sour cream in a ziploc.  Use a needle to create a small whole in the bottom corner, and you’ve got yourself a neat way to draw on the field.

Eat and enjoy.  After all, it ain’t a Super Bowl party without either A) Frohli, or B) GuacaFrohli

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.

Forget Spoons, Forks and Knives. The Dipr Is The Only Utensil You’ll Ever Need

oreo dipper tool

Milk and cookies go together like blankets on pigs. Yesterday I was informed of what appears to be the biggest breakthrough in food since Hot Pockets were invented. Introducing, the Dipr. A lightweight, easy tool to hold tool that will hold an Oreo while dipping it in milk. A simple & easy to use design. Maybe it’s from the same designers as Ikea furniture? Who knows. Check out the video below.

And a great action shot from a co-worker…

Thanks to @Frohli for this find. He claims it was “recommended” to him on Amazon. I think he just pressed some random keys in the search box to see what came up. Can’t bash him for that – it’s a great find.

Never Eat Cold Pizza Again..Make A Pizza Pocket With This Easy Trick

Everyone has great food tips and tricks. One of my favorite places to find them is on Reddit’s FoodHacks subreddit. I’m constantly browsing Reddit for the best tips and tricks to test out in my kitchen. I’ll post some of my favorites in a new section here on OMG Let’s BBQ called Food Hacks.

DIY Pizza Pocket

The first hack comes from Reddit user J_Kenji_Lopez-Alt. All too often I wake up after a long night out with cold pizza. As you all know, pizza is a way of life in New York and it’s one of the few places open after 4am. The problem with pizza that’s leftover in the fridge is heating it back up.

I’m sure all of us rely on the microwave to re-heat all types of food, including pizza. The problem is that the pizza dough gets very tough to eat.

Do you have a waffle maker? All you need to do it fold the slice into a triangle and heat it up for a few minutes. BOOM. A pizza pocket!

The one thing we are missing? Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust pizza. language translator . Another post to come on that at a later time (I’m furious about this, btw)

The bros over at Epic Meal Time, the infamous group known for YouTube videos of putting the word debauchery into food – has a new creation.

Introducing the Cheeseburger Pizza. Sounds ridiculous? Wait until you watch the video. Keep an eye out in the lower right hand corner at 2:18!

 

I have to admit, these guys are pretty impressive chefs. Knowing to pre-cook the pizza before the cheeseburgers is something that I would have had no idea to do.

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.

2014-01-26 16.30.24

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.
