Hatch Chile Guacamole Burger Recipe for National Burger Day!

posted on August 25th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

We are still in Hatch Chile season...and frankly, we're loving it. Spicy and smokey, everything with Hatch just seems to taste a little more exciting and a lot more delicious. Whether it's roasted and diced in cheesy and decadent mac-n-cheese or a filleted and added to a classic grilled cheese sandwich, we  love it all. The Hatch possibilities are endless... One of our favorite ways to eat Hatch chile though is mixed in our already tasty guacamole. It's the perfect match for a crunchy tortilla chip. Or -add that creamy and spicy guac to the top of a juicy burger and you've achieved casual culinary comfort food perfection. This Sunday is National Burger Day too - so why not kick up your burger a little with some of our Hatch guacamole? But if you aren't quite feeling up to "manning the grill," just enjoy the Hatch Guacamole Burger at one of our store cafes. Either way, you're going to be treating your taste buds to something pretty special. Hatch Chile Guacamole… Read More

Typical of central Italy, but popular beyond regional boundaries, the roast pig is a delicacy irresistible for those who love the hearty flavor and good taste. It consists of a whole pig, drained, boned and seasoned inside with salt, pepper, herbs, and roasted in the oven and, as is known, is tasted in slices as a main dish or as filling for sandwiches, so it is are typical sale on the street where you can buy sandwiches with roast pork while strolling through the streets. For the most refined taste, the pork can be flavored with a good tasted rosemary which intensifies the flavor and taste, as in southern Tuscany, in the Castelli Romani in the south and other areas of central Italy, and sometimes, even if the consumption should take place immediately after purchase, you can pass it in a pan with a little oil, a few tomatoes, a clove of garlic and all its dressing and for a further refined taste, the pork can also be consumed along with the delicious Arabic bread. It is no… Read More

TGIFF Movement & Fish Sandwich Special

posted on February 19th, 2015 by Melinda Race

Have you heard of the TGIFF movement? I think most of us are very familiar and fond of the phrase "thank goodness it's Friday," especially after a long work week. But, there is a new phrase going around - one that has been developed in an effort to increase seafood awareness, healthy appetites, and a reminder to incorporate seafood into the diet at least once a week. The "Thank Goodness It’s Fish Friday" campaign is lead by Bristol Farms' partner and supplier of our “Fish Sandwich” Cod, served in our cafes. Seafood is a lean protein with many health benefits.  In fact, the USDA recommends eating at least two servings of seafood per week.  Seafood protects the heart, boosts immunity, and sharpens memory, plus much, much more.   In support of the seafood campaign, we are serving our delicious Fish Sandwich special during lunch hour every Friday for just $7.99! Our authentic Fish Sandwich is made using an English-style ale battered Cod - mild, white, tender and flaky… Read More
