Sunday, April 10, 2011 Introducing the Faux Boy!
I can't possibly be the first one to come up with that play on words, but please, give me all the credit.
Tonight's dinner came to me slowly as I walked down to the supermarket. I've wanted seafood all week. Actually, I've wanted lobster all week. But I've been unable to find it anywhere on sale. Fairway had shrimp on sale but that's a much longer walk than my neighborhood supermarket. So my mind somehow settled on mushrooms, hence, the Faux Boy.
A French bread sandwich with fried mushrooms, fried onions, bacon, sprouts, tomato, guacamole and a hint of lime. DDelicious. The mushrooms I fried in the same style as Carnival Night! But this time I seasoned the corn flour with Old Bay. Mmm, mmm, mmm. This sandwich is out of this world. Flavorful, fresh, cool and crispy all at once. You won't miss the seafood!
I got all of the ingredients (minus the onions and bacon which I already had) at the store for less than 15 bucks. One french loaf, one lime, one package of sprouts, one package of mushrooms, one really good tomato, one bag of fancy chips and a fabulous product called Wholly Guacamole . I wanted to buy an avocado and make my own guacamole, but they were all hard as rocks, so for $2.79 I gave the product a try. I liked it! It gave the sandwich great flavor and all I had to do was open the 100 calorie package and smear.
This dinner will be repeated \m/
