The special sandwich this weekend was the Three Little Pigs: Grilled French Baguette topped with smoked pork, ham, bacon, a fried egg, chipotle mayo, and cheddar. This sounded like more than I was ready for first thing so I just went with a breakfast sandwich with andouille chicken sausage. Unfortunately they were out of the chicken andouille and offered turkey sausage instead. I ordered it to go with some home fries and a few minutes later headed home with my styrofoam container and stack of napkins.
The container managed to encapsulate the whole James Brown experience: kind of dark, a little messy, warm, and filling the air with the steamy smell of grease and grilled meat. The next thing I noticed was the frickin' Rochester hard roll. It seems that Petrillo's Bakery has cornered the market on restaurant rolls. Not to pick on them, but these dinner rolls just don't hold up in a greasy sandwich, especially one with a slab of sausage in it. Take a look below, the roll just condenses into nothing; The sausage is thicker than the roll!
