There was a time when my buddies and I would go all out on food for the browns home opener. We are all a little older and little heavier so we try to keep the food reasonable. Not this year.
My ex-wife kept up a 4 year long charade by telling me that our local grocery store didn’t carry “Texas Toast”. Any veteran power eater knows that Texas Toast is the corner stone of a hearty sandwich. Due to it’s increased thickness it can support a lot more meat, or cheese. Now that I am divorced, I do the shopping, and I found the Texas toast on the first trip.
There we go. So, for the meal we made what I like to call “Big Italy sandwiches” named after my roommate. First, I buttered up one side of the Texas Toast and then sprinkled on a little garlic salt (you have to have garlic). Then, I put the buttered side down on the griddle. Then 1 slice of American cheese. Then, as many pre-cook fried mozzarella sticks as a could fit on the cheese. The first slice of cheese keeps them from sliding around.
Then another slice of cheese, and then the top layer of bread. I really, really, really wanted to add a few slices of bacon, but Maddog felt this would be crossing the line, since we were all out of “eating shape”.
The “Big Italy”! I hit the treadmill directly after the game. I should probably still be running.
