They go pretty well on a lightly toasted onion bun with a sizzling half-pound of grillled Angus beef, a half dozen thick strips of applewood BACON, big slice of onion, roasted green chiles, Pepper-Jack Cheese, and, yesss-real MAYO...Miracle Whip belongs in ha-ha's thread about his noisy neighbor.

That sounds like what passes for a salad in Austria.

DW and I were there recently, and as is my habit, for lunch one day I ordered something I couldn't pronounce. My 'German for Chem Majors' skills translated the description roughly as a "mixed salad for lunch with egg". OK, maybe this is the local version of a Cobb salad or some such.

The plate arrives, and it includes five different kinds of salads, including lettuce, a tasty carrot salad, potato salad, and some other interesting sorts. Better, there's a grilled veal sausage on the plate. Even better, there's a couple slices of grilled salted ham. The whole thing is topped with a fried egg.

Now, that's a salad.

I was shocked to read a local rumor that our Zippy's chili is made with a couple tablespoons of mayo among the pound of ground beef:
mmm-yoso!!!: Local Kine Chili

Keep in mind that this vicious talk-stink has yet to be confirmed or denied by Zippy's, which is only adding to the furor.

Of course REWahoo would suspect that they added extra beans to neutralize the mayo taste. Either way I'm not sure I'll be able to look at a Zippy's fundraiser coupon offer ever again...

Makes me question what other secret ingredient Zippy's "chili" contains...

The recipe's pH has been carefully designed so that the cooks don't even have to open the cans... they just throw them in!

Darn, now I'm hungry too. Good thing it's pizza night.

Exactly mustard goes on every sandwich, well maybe not tuna fish salad.

Subway puts mustard on tuna salad unless you tell them not to.

My most er interesting when I first transferred to New Orleans was:

Well salted french fries smothered in gravy as a Po-Boy on New Orleans bread - like Liedenheimer.

heh heh heh - a ton of salt and you can 'zip' up the gravy as you like.

Dressed of course!

I was weaned on fried egg and cheese sandwiches on toast with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Often added a little sweet onion. And sometimes the mayo was Miracle Whip.

Ah, sweet youth!

Ha

Sounds like what the Canadians call poutine. But the places I have been to that serve this skip the bread.

Ha

Poutine also has cheese curds and IIRC some sort of vinegar flavored chicken gravy.

Talk about heart attack on a plate...

At least they left the dang mayo off of it.
