This sweet and savory bread pudding recipe comes from Sessions Public in San Diego. It’s perfect for a Sunday breakfast or brunch! Sessions Public is a casual, charming neighborhood eatery with an ever-changing draft beer selection on the cusp of Ocean Beach and Point Loma in coastal San Diego. Opened in 2010 by San Diego native, Abel Kaase, the restaurant reflects the casual beach culture of its surroundings.

The restaurant’s eclectic selection of local and imported brews is paired with an approachable, yet creative menu with signature dishes such as Duck Fat Fries, Bacon Lollipops and Pork Belly Tacos. As a nod to the San Diego area code, happy hour is offered until 6:19 p.m. daily. Lunch and dinner are also available, as well as weekend brunch.

Chick-N Bacon Tater Melt Munchie Meal Review

chick-n-bacon-tater-melt-munchie-meal-review

Night owls, rejoice! Jack in the Box’s new Munchie Meal items and Munchie Peel instant-win game were designed with you in mind. The Munchie Meal is only available after 9:00 PM, and includes 2 items with DELICIOUS BACON!

I sampled the Chick-N-Tater Melt Munchie Meal. This includes the new Chick-n-Tater Melt: crispy chicken, hash browns, bacon, Ranch dressing and an ooey gooey three cheese sauce, all on a buttery croissant. At first I was a bit baffled at the concept. Is it a breakfast sandwich? Is it lunch sandwich? Is it both??

I ordered mine with no Ranch, and was surprised at how tasty it was! The cheese sauce really made the sandwich, and the chicken and hash browns were extra crispy. And you can’t really go wrong when bacon and a croissant bun are involved. The Munchie Meal also came with 2 tacos, a soda and “halfise” fries, a 50/50 french fry/curly fry mix. It’s a ton of calories for a tiny price. You know, for people who have really worked up an appetite.

The cutesy box made it a little more apparent who the target market for the “munchies” meal is… “Couch Bingo” lets you play bingo from the comfort of your own sofa, which is apparently where the Munchie Meal is meant to be devoured!

Another bacony M.M option is the Loaded Nuggets meal. This item includes chicken nuggets covered in cheese sauce and bacon. If only the Hella-peno Burger and the Stacked Grilled Cheese Burger included BACON!!

Bernie’s Pizza

Bernie's Pizza-5

Bernie's Pizza-6

Bernie’s is a favorite for some of the Whiskey Bacon crew – but no soo much for the others.

We tested three different pies; the chicken wing, plain cheese and a special spinach, feta, and bacon pie.  The verdict was torn though in the group. Many pizza lovers passionately felt that pies were better down the road, at a few of Dallas’ many other pizza joints, such as Pizza Perfect’s Sicilian. Some say this pizza is one of the best for flavor and topping combination with an unbeatable price.

You can find out more about Bernie’s on Facebook, where they post delicious pizza’s almost daily. The place itself is easy to miss, down at the end of a strip mall.

Bernie's Pizza-2

So rather than hear one person’s view,  we’re breaking down the pro’s and con’s of this Dallas pie maker in a totally non verbatim discussion. Because you don’t love pizza unless you’re willing to argue over it.

Leni and the Lovers:  It’s all about flavor, I enjoyed the fact that the pizza had taste to it. So many in this area don’t taste like much more than cheese and grease.

Gus: Bernie’s pizza’s crust is extremely thin. Definitely not pizza for the thick at heart like me.

Leni:  But the thinness also made it easy to make into a pizza sandwich – like a super pizza with crispy edges.

Gus: To be fair, I liked the cheese pizza, but I’m just not a fan of chicken wing.

Leni: Well that explains that, how about the feta, spinach and bacon?

Gus:  It had too much on it. Too much stuff.

Leni: Why don’t you get stuffed. I kid. Alright, how about the price? A lot of people are upset that the price of the pizzas at Bernie’s have gone up since they were college students.

Gus: I thought it was very well priced.

Leni: Oh well, at least we can agree on one thing, right?

Gus: Beer?

Leni: Yes, beer. Let’s go get some.

(Side note – they sell Root Beer at Bernie’s so you can totally eat in with a pie and root beer’s if that your style, or pop over to one of the 6 local bars for an after pizza party.)

Fatty’s Burgers & More, Makes One Sweet Burger

Have you ever sat down at your local dinner starring at your bacon cheese burger and milkshake dreading the physically draining task of picking up the burger, taking a bite, setting it down, then picking up the milk shake, slurping the straw, and then setting it down only to have to do it all over again. If only there was a better way?

Well thanks to San Antonio based restaurant “Fatty’s Burgers & More” no longer do you have to be a slave to normal eating procedures. They have introduced what they call the “Ice Cream Cheeseburger” and it is exactly what it sounds like. A big old meat patty covered in cheese and bacon then topped with a scoop of fried ice cream. They say it tastes like taking a swig of a milk shake right after a bite of a cheeseburger.

But Fatty’s doesn’t stop there they also have a Pancake Burger, Fried Egg Burger, BBQ Burger, and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Burger. I think this is a sign that the Baconpants crew needs to take a much needed road trip.

If you live in the San Antonio area get your butt to Fatty’s and let us know how it is.
