A.F.T. All Around
I have to start this post out with an apology to Ken. While the lateness of this post is apt considering the name of his feature, he deserves better. Well now that the A.F.T. has come and gone as our customer selected feature last week, I figured I might as well finally write a bit about it, since I thought it was a pretty solid one. While it was a simple concept with a simple execution, a Buffalo Chicken grilled cheese, I thought it was damn tasty. For this one we decided to go with a creamy Cambozola, Mesquite grilled chicken and Hot Sauce on Cayenne-Panko crusted French White. The Cayenne-Panko crust had the interesting effect of making the bread less crispy this time around, far different than the Panko-Parmesan crust on the Funghi which makes the grilled cheese even more crispy. The crust had a great flavour to it though, that contrasted well with the saltiness of the Cambozola.
What was even better about the feature was the ability to make a really awesome Epic version. We’ll call this one the Double Decker-Double Down. The awesomeness started with three chicken breasts surrounding a healthy amount of Cambozola. The stack of Chicken-Cheesy awesomeness was then wrapped in rice paper, egg washed and dredged in flour and the Cayenne-Panko crust. The whole thing was deep fried until nicely brown and then tossed in hot sauce, making one giant buffalo wing grilled cheese.
It was a great feature, it was a sick epic, it was about freakin’ time that Ken got to choose the feature, and geeze it was about $#@%in’ time I got this post out. Sorry Ken, I’ll make sure those awesome photos follow right away.
