Battle of the Breakfast Sandwiches, Part Two: Doughboys

Doughboys breakfast sandwich:

So which breakfast sandwich do you prefer? Auntie Em's or Doughboys?

Even though I'm a cheesehead I have to say that I like Auntie Em's a little better - although it could have used some of the cheese that was on the Doughboys' sandwich. The above sandwich was made with Pan de Mie, bacon, cheese, fried eggs (over medium) and tomato. Then they put even more cheese, Gruyere I believe, on top and then gratineed the whole thing.

The first problem was that I thought that the Pan de Mie was too sweet of a bread to be using for this dish. It was good on the grilled cheese (see "After School Special on Saturday Morning" July '06 archives) but with the addition of the egg and the bacon the sweetness of the bread clashed with most of the ingredients and the dish became far too rich - I think that the dish may have tasted much better with a french or sourdough bread. However, when I ate the second half the next morning, I added some leftover grilled asparagus to it while it was re-heating and that seemed to cut the sweetness and it was much better. The second problem was that there was hardly any bacon on this sandwich.

The real problem here was not the sandwich. While I was waiting for Raven I noticed something that got my blood boiling. What, Dear Reader, does NoodleWhore hate more than auto trans? People who bring small dogs to restaurants! It's not the dogs that bother me but the owners. So I see this couple walk up with their adorable Prince Daniel Cocker Spaniel and they stop in front of this table outside with another couple and then the two couples get into a very detailed conversation about dog poop! Buon Giorno! I have two 90 lb German Shepherds at home, I have my hands filled with dog poop (literally) and it would be nice to be able to go out and escape that for a few hours. But nooooooooo! Has this conversation replaced the toilet-training-the-child conversation? How rude.

But I will be back to try the breakfast pizza!

Drink of the day: Best damn iced cafe au lait that I've ever had

Moral of the story: Raven should have arrived on the dot to spare NoodleWhore the annoying overheard convo.

And I am hungry again now.

Stop it with your Doughboys porn.

Oh, and I just saw a commercial for KFC and I felt sorry for the family because they weren't eating Dinah's chicken. Home of the flying Ortho Tri-Lo!

LOL! You guys crack me up!

Raven, I arrived at Doughboys early so it's really my neurosis that caused me to be ear deep in dog poop.

Heidi, I'm still laughing about it!

feawf! (not an official entry but just getting into the spirit)
