Properly called Fried Cookie Dough Bites à la Mode on the Sonic Drive-In menu, in that final menu item you’ll find—and lo and behold—according to Sonic’s own site: “Chocolate chip cookie dough, fried until golden brown and served with a side of real ice cream for dipping.” So that means, for the record, something like these ingredients for chocolate chip cookie dough, noting that we use a big national brand, Nestlē’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, to be precise, like reference ; we can’t be 100% sure what’s in the Sonic recipe, but it’s probably something like bleached wheat flour, sugar, chocolate, oils of all kinds and flavorings and preservatives. And more, but you get the picture.

As for vanilla ice cream, we’re going to assume that the ingredients listed in another fast food chain’s soft vanilla is a close comparison, since the ingredients in Sonic’s ice cream are notoriously hard to find. So let’s take a look at what’s in the app from that place you might have heard of called McDonald’s that easily divulges ingredients. And they are: “Milk, sugar, cream, corn syrup, natural flavor, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, guar gum, carrageenan, vitamin A palmitate.”

Are you looking for a dinner recipe that’s good enough for a company but doesn’t break the bank? Mary Rappaport of the Virginia Egg Council has the perfect sandwich.

Invite a few friends over to watch a movie or a football game and casually whip up that sandwich during the commercials.

This sandwich can be made with ciabatta rolls or focaccia bread and has a unique “toad in the hole” surprise on top. Mary explains that “toad in the hole” refers to an egg baked in the hole cut into a piece of bread.

“The bread itself is intensely flavorful, and then the layers of cheese, caramelized onions and bacon, layered around a ‘jammy’ egg are just fabulous (in fact, the house will smell great while you prepare) and it’s sure to be an instant hit, with your guests clamoring for the recipe,” Rappaport said. “Serve it with a simple arugula salad and fruit for dessert – easy, delicious, affordable…that’s what I’m talking about!”

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups chopped yellow onion

  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus more to spread on bread

  • 1 loaf of Focaccia bread, an 8″ ciabatta segment, or 2 individual ciabatta rolls or an 8×4″ roll

  • 1 cup grated cheese of your choice

  • 4 to 6 slices of bacon, cooked and drained

  • 2 eggs

  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, add the onion and cook slowly until the onions caramelize, brown and are translucent. This takes the longest, so get started right away.

  2. Slice the bread, horizontally, and butter the inside of the top and bottom.

  3. Make 2 holes in the top of the focaccia bread (or 1 in each of the ciabatta breads) using a round cookie cutter or a glass.

  4. Place the buttered sides of the bread, warm side down in a hot skillet over medium heat and toast.

  5. Put a small spoonful of butter in each hole in the bread and crack an egg into each. It will take a few minutes for the eggs to cook, sunny side up.

  6. Once grilled, return the stock to the pan: sprinkle with grated cheese, then place the bacon bits and smother everything with the cooked onions.

  7. Garnish with cooked egg focaccia inside. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut the bread into two portions (ciabatta rolls serve one each) and serve with a side salad.

Makes 2 substantial servings

Gameday Morning Dawg Bites and Open Comment Thread – On this college football Saturday morning, we take a look at some UGA/SC news and enjoy an early morning open comment thread. https://bantamnyc.com/gameday-morning-dawg-bites-and-open-comment-thread-on-this-college-football-saturday-morning-we-take-a-look-at-some-uga-sc-news-and-enjoy-an-early-morning-open-comment-thread/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://bantamnyc.com/gameday-morning-dawg-bites-and-open-comment-thread-on-this-college-football-saturday-morning-we-take-a-look-at-some-uga-sc-news-and-enjoy-an-early-morning-open-comment-thread/ It’s another glorious Saturday morning just outside of Athens, Georgia!

It’s another glorious Saturday morning just outside of Athens, Georgia! Soon we’ll be putting all kinds of chicken on the smoker, to be sauced both traditional and Carolina BBQ style. On top of that there will be smoked baked beans and smoked macaroni and cheese, cornbread baked in cast iron, and a frozen peach pie that I spent most of last night making. It’s going to be exquisite…as much as I expect today’s game between your #1 Georgia Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks to be.

But not everyone in the Bulldog Nation can be as blessed as I am. For reasons beyond comprehension, some of our fellow Dawgs made the trip to Columbia, SC for today’s game and we must keep them in our thoughts and prayers. While they may get to see Georgia live and in person today, I have to ask, “At what cost?” »

So this one is for all the poor souls heading to the Williams-Brice stadium…have a good visit, but don’t stay too long.

And now for your Gameday Morning Dawg Bites:


  • The Georgian defense gave up 3 points in the first two games. No one knows how much they could give up against the Gamecocks. But if you’re feeling nostalgic and think the Dawgs might give the hens a big goose egg, UGAWire has a rundown of all the shutouts from the Kirby Smart era for you.
  • Ladies and gentlemen, we have a hyped trailer!

I have to say that I really appreciate the continued use of current players as storytellers. They’re big and they’re bad and the fact that they tell their own story is pretty cool.

  • Georgia’s passing game will be without a few big targets today as we learn that Arik Gilbert and Adonai Mitchell didn’t make the trip to Colombia.
  • CBS Sports named Spencer Rattler the player with “the most to win” this season in terms of NFL draft stock. I could argue that I was the tuba player with “the most to gain” by inviting the head cheerleader to prom, but that didn’t exactly mean we were going to prom together, did it? not ?
  • Finally, we have a blast from the past at Dawgs in NFL news. Former Georgia offensive lineman Fernando Velasco has been named director of player development for the Atlanta Falcons. Damn to see a DGD doing his thing.

As you know, this space will also serve as an early morning open comment thread. Let us know how you’ll spend your time before kick-off and what you think of this and the rest of today’s games. MaconDawg will soon be with your Q1 open comment thread.

Until there…

GOOOO DAWGS!!!

Chick-fil-A doesn’t change its menu very often, but they just added four new items to the fall menu. Some of them may remain permanently and others deleted, so you can try them out while you can.

  • Chorizo ​​and Cheddar Egg Bites – these are currently being tested in Augusta, Georgia, Aiken, SC., Columbus, Ohio, Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia, Miami, Florida and New Orleans, Louisiana. And one order consists of four snack-sized bites made with eggs, sausage, and a mix of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses. It’s a limited-time test and if all goes well, they could be released nationwide.
  • Grilled spicy deluxe sandwich – Grilled marinated chicken in a spicy seasoning with Colby-Jack cheese, lettuce and tomato on a multigrain brioche bun. It was first introduced last year as a seasonal addition to the menu.
  • Autumn Spice Milkshake – it’s the first new milkshake flavor to appear in four years, but it’s only available until November 12. It has a cinnamon flavor with crunchy bits of brown sugar cookies and passed a test last October with flying colors.
  • Improved Grilled Chicken Nuggets – these nuggets are “upgraded” due to a mix-up in the recipe that mistakenly included a dairy allergen. All grilled chicken items are being upgraded due to the issue and the company says “we are actively working with the supplier to ensure this does not happen again and to ensure the allergen is removed”.

When I was presented with a perfect cube of yellow sponge-like bread at a restaurant on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park, I expected a subtle sweetness and texture similar to your egg white cake. medium. But the cornbread side dish was savory, buttery, and as dense as a brick – perfect for soaking up the pool of sauce left on my plate.

THE DISH

There are several variations of the basic North American side dish. Thanks to corn’s abundance prior to European settlement, cornbread has strong ties to native Native American tribes, including the Hopi of Arizona, the Hidatsa of North Dakota, and the Cherokee, Iroquois, and Seneca who used ground corn to create pancakes, dumplings, and cooked and boiled versions.

Modern recipes are called a quick dough bread, and in just over an hour the combination of cornmeal, baking powder, buttermilk and eggs can be transported from the mixing bowl to the frying pan. to produce a delicious golden slice of the substance.

However, soaring daily expenses have forced thousands of people to stay at work longer and many who were already retired to return to work.

“Gone are the days of worrying about whether people were going to blow the whole 25pc lump sum on a Lamborghini,” Ms O’Connor said. “Now it seems people would feel uncomfortable even shelling out for a used Toyota Prius.”

Sarah Taylor, 61, from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, said she should work as long as she can and delay her retirement to ensure she can retire more comfortably.

“I feel the pressure to keep working for as long as I can. There is a lot of uncertainty right now with the economy and I feel financially vulnerable,” she said. “I’ve been contributing to a pension for years, but every time you check how much you can get in retirement, it’s never as much as you think.”

Meanwhile, many older workers are sleepwalking into a retirement crisis as millions of people between the ages of 58 and 76 are not saving enough, according to B&CE, a pension body. This will result in many working longer.

Many are also being forced back into employment due to the cost of living crisis. A record 174,000 people aged 65 and over found jobs in the three months to June.

According to a survey last month by Rest Less, a digital community for the over 50s, a third of retirees have considered returning to work, with half citing rising costs as one of their main reasons for returning. do it.

There was a 200% increase in online searches for “part-time jobs for retired professionals” and a 100% increase in searches for “jobs for retirees,” according to data from Lottie, a retirement home comparison service. The cost of living crisis and a “pension crisis” are the reasons most often given to justify a return to work.

Will Donnelly of Lottie said: “It’s no surprise we’ve seen a wave of retirees returning to work. Rising energy prices will hit people on fixed incomes very hard. This will be the main factor for those returning to employment.

If you’re hoping to make one last trip to the Parador at Egg Harbor, you’re running out of time. After 12 seasons of serving incredible small plates, sangria and chocolate churros at 7829 Hwy 42, the restaurant is closing after service on Saturday, September 3.

Blue Bear adds dinner

Blue Bear, the restaurant that moved to the former Viking Grill space this year, is adding dinner service.

Dinner service is available Thursday through Saturday, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Blue Bear is located at 12029 Hwy 42 in Ellison Bay.

The winery wins the prize for the best wine

It was the third red wine to score 90 or more points in recent years, and one of four von Stiehl wines submitted to the competition that achieved high marks.
“We are very humbled and honored that this wine scored so high, at 96 points, along with three other wines that scored 84 points or more,” said Anthony Bilwin, Managing Director of von Stiehl. “Our red wine program has really been a priority for us, and it’s exciting for our team to see their passion score so incredibly well.”

Other von Stiehl wines that performed well in this year’s competition are its 2017 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (with 92 points), its 2017 Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon (89 points) and its 2021 Albarino (84 points). And it all came after its Cherry Bounce won double gold — best-in-class liquor — at this year’s Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in June, for the second straight year.

5. Unroll crescent sheets and cut in half lengthwise, then cut into ½”x6″ strips.

6. Wrap each piece of bratwurst with a 6″ strip and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
