Shopsins' Poached Egg-Filled, Double-Decker French Toast Grilled Cheese Sandwich, You're the Best
I was hoping to finish writing a big roundup of my favorite bites from 2012 before leaving on my trip to Istanbul today. Haha. HAHA. HAHAHA nope, that's definitely not happening.
But before I go to bed and get five hours of sleep, I can write about this one thing I ate yesterday. Look at this sandwich:
And how about again, because I turned the plate around:
And this! [points wildly]
This fantastic breakfast glory pile of bread, cheese, and eggs is the So Good ($16) from Shopsins. They called it the So Good because duh. The beast of a menu describes it as "3D french toast grilled cheese, poached eggs." More specifically, it's a double-decker grilled cheese sandwich made with three slices of French toast thickly layered with loads of oozing cheese. The center of the sandwich gets cored to make room for two perfectly poached eggs, resulting in the bonus prize of a biscuit-sized, crust-less baby grilled cheese sandwich on the side.
- It comes with a small bottle of maple syrup. Perfect.
Do you want salty? Do you want sweet? Do you want cheesy? Do you want bready? Do you want cholesterol? DO YOU WANT TO HAVE IT ALL? YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL!!! BECAUSE FREEDOM AND AMERICA AND STUFF!!!

I don't know the last time I felt so much food joy. A quiet joy. A quiet, food coma-laced joy.
