Happy National Cheeseburger Day 2014

I have to apologize for learning about today being “National Cheeseburger Day” so late, but for those readers in the city that never sleeps you still have plenty of time to indulge and enjoy this day to the fullest.

Now I will admit that I love me a good cheeseburger and for the most part have found plenty of good ones around the city and beyond while on my PiercingMetal music adventuring or just out with friends. That being said I figured that the best way to honor this special day is to reflect upon several of my favorite spots for a good cheeseburger. If you are following me on Foodspotting.com you will likely recognize some of the photographs.

I’m starting off with one of the stuffed burgers from The 13th Step. This is one of my favorite pregaming spots when I go to Webster Hall for any of their concerts. When I say stuffed burger, I mean that they literally stuff the toppings inside the meat. This was a jalapeno pepper and cheddar cheeseburger. It had some bite for sure and as you can see is served with tots. You can also opt for sweet potato fries which they do wonderfully.

A Glimpse Of The Expanded Idle Hands Bar NYC

A couple of years ago I toasted the second anniversary of the Idle Hands Bar that a few of my friends from the NYC Music Scene had opened up as I was so happy to find it being the success that it was in a metropolis where there is some king of bar at every turn. New folks to this particular posting can click HERE to update themselves and then continue along.

As I cited in that posting, Idle Hands Bar was located downstairs at this address and quickly became the place to go for industry and fans alike after Metal shows and given its clientele and hosts, you could generally count on something Metal brewing within its walls.

Playing “Master Chef” On Easter Sunday 2014

I periodically like to share my cooking adventures and experiments here on the Piercing Ken blog and since this Easter was going to find me all by myself with no real plans to visit anyone, I would be left to my own devices in the kitchen. Oh don’t feel bad about that disclosure because I had two back to back killer Metal concerts to cover for PiercingMetal.com on Friday and Saturday so I was looking forward to the quiet time and seeing what I could find in the apartment to cook up. When I realize that I had one of those frozen turkey loafs in my freezer, it was time to use it.

To Quickly Cook A Quality Culinary Concoction

I’m pretty sure that I had made something similar to this and shared it here with you on the blog but since this was slightly different I decided to share it just the same. I’ve no real name for the dish so if you come up with something that works I might just give you a toast and shout out.

The Exploding Omelet: A Variant Kind

Many of my friends know of my absolute appreciation for the comic book medium, and so many of those have variant to their covers when they get released so I felt that it would be a good time to do the same thing with a not too long ago posted recipe. I recently tossed together “the Exploding Omelet” as my title and here is the variant to that original theme. I also decided to share some of the preparation steps and visuals with you this time around. Let’s go. This recipe begins with two eggs, a couple of slices of hard salami and pepperoni, jalapeno peppers, a mushroom and a slice of American cheese.
