The topic for this week's "The Taste" was guilty pleasures.
For me it would be warm bread pudding with bourbon sauce, cappuccino cheese cake and toasted pound cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, topped with hot fudge sauce. On the savory side it would be fried chicken, Brie LT with thick sliced bacon sandwich.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Here is my list
Bacon, Egg and cheese burger
Bratwurst on a pretzel bun with stone ground mustard and sauerkraut
Pulled Pork sandwich topped with cole slaw with a side of mac and cheese.
Orange Chocolate Cheese Cake
For unknown reasons, when I have not eaten well or have been dieting, I want fried chicken. I desire and long for it. Have no idea why, unless I long for the grease, flesh and salt. Fried chicken is a guilty pleasure for me too.
Eating real good Mexican is a guilty pleasure for me as well. An occasional frozen custard is a pleasure, especially in the warm months. I can't do that more than once or twice a season.
A snatched piece of Halloween candy, and Christmas cookies are other major guilty pleasures for me.
Another rare one, really rare, is an old fashioned milkshake or malt.
Hot fudge sundae with good quality vanilla ice cream and fudge topped with whipped cream and nuts;
Pistachio ice cream sundae with hot butterscotch sauce;
Spaghetti with good homemade meaty spaghetti sauce;
Grilled cheese with tomato;
Good fried whole belly clams or clam cakes, preferably at the beach
Prime rib (rare) w/horseradish cream
