Vending Machine Gross Item of the Week Awards
In the cold weather that seems to be never ending, we often look for morsels of comfort food or just something warm to keep tummies toasty and happy. Another quick response of assistance from the rescue squad of Warren, Ohio and behold! Just such a dish! As we continue to brave the artic weather and don our flannel apparel (as well as 10 other layers of clothing), we march down to the vending machine of sunshine and lollipops to this week’s winning entrée’…
Bob Evans Stuffers Sausage Gravy Buttermilk Biscuits
I admit, I like a good breakfast! And if you’re waiting for the “BUT”, here it comes… There is one thing on the breakfast menu that I don’t understand and cannot consider eating just because I can’t get past the appearance of it, and that is biscuits and sausage gravy. Perhaps the folks at Bob Evans have considered this, or perhaps they just are going for compact eatery but they have conveniently designed a biscuit that has the gravy INSIDE the biscuit. You don’t really have to see the biscuit floating in a pool of goo – you just have to ingest it without dripping gravy all over your shirt!! And for those of you keeping track, this is the second week that the folks at Bob Evans have also made a contribution to our vending machine. Kudos to them for another breakfast contribution!!
Wine pairing: A hearty breakfast sandwich needs a hearty wine! Our pick is the Sandeman Armada Oloroso Cream sherry. Much like our sandwich, this wine is aged for 7 years before making an appearance on the shelves, but brings with it a full-bodied blend of sun dried grapes and a nice, smooth flavor. Just the right blend for sausage and biscuits!
Beer pairing: Our beer this week is St. Bernardus Abt 12. This dark ale has a fruity aroma and a bittersweet and malty finish. Bringing all this flavor to the table just gives us another good match for our gravy packed biscuit!
So, unless you’re running off to warmer places (like Cancun where’s it’s tropical and there are umbrella drinks) keep those tummies warm and when you find yourself in need of a tasty but potentially sloppy snack, try Bob Evans all-encompassing biscuit and gravy treat! You might not be disappointed!
