Chicken Fried Steak Recipe – Weekend Breakfasts At My House

When I was growing up, it was etched in stone  that the family had a big Saturday breakfast together; often my dad cooked the elaborate set-up, which might have been steak and eggs, pancakes or waffles, fruit turnovers, sausage or bacon. It got so that friends of me and my siblings wanted to do sleepovers on Friday nites just for the […]

Claim Jumper Frozen Chicken Fried Steak

Isn’t it amazing how fast food has permeated our lives?   Not only do we grab a meal on the go in our car, but now we have scads of restaurant-branded food in the grocery stores.  Were White Castle Burgers first?   Now we can get Taco Bell products, TGI Fridays, myriad pizzas, Marie Callender’s, and now, […]

Boston Market Country Fried Steak Review

Bear with me as I take you on this journey of magical heat and eat meals. Today’s example, “Boston Market” Country Fried Steak. A frozen entree, with mash potatoes and cream gravy. Boston Market, like many companies, does not actually produce this product, but licenses their name to  Bellisio Foods, a company I know a bit […]

DQ Chicken Fingers Review

Started in Illinois in the 1940s, Dairy Queen (now owned by Warren Buffet) is based in a Minneapolis suburb and has over 6500 stores in 27 countries. Over the past few years, they have been adding hot food items to their ice cream only stores. I set out to have a Warren Buffet burger today, […]

Circle A Ranch Country Fried Beef

I’ve written a whole lot about  the products from Cincinnati-based Advance Pierre, the premiere “heat and eat” and “gas station sandwich” maker in the U.S.  Often, besides in vending and C-stores, you’ll find their frozen products at dollar stores. You know how much I love chicken fried steak?  I’ve tried it all over the country, both […]

Maders Restaurant Review – Milwaukee, WI

There’s a gaggle of old-timey German restaurants in Milwaukee.  Last trip, I went to the Kegel Inn, which was excellent in every way. This trip is was Mader’s, I daresay Milwaukee’s oldest, dating back to 1902. Very traditional menu with minor updates to woo the millenials, one would guess. I started with the pretzel and […]

Crack Barrel Review, Nationwide Chain

I was reading about this couple the other day, 80 years old, who have visited every Cracker Barrel Old Country Store in the country, except one. Interesting goal. According to Wikipedia, there are 640 outlets. The company started in 1969 with the first store located in Lebanon, TN. The accent is on “country home cooking” […]

Carys Family Restaurant Review – Cary, IL

“No, we’re out,” said Adele firmly. I protested, and she replied “we had five servings left and I sold them all this morning. Won’t be more until the delivery truck comes.” “I’ll wait.” OK, I didn’t say that, and noticing the disappointment on my face that I wasn’t going to get to have Chicken Fried […]

Lamberts Review – Sikeston, MO

Always been curious about this place, which advertises heavily along the interstate. They also have another Missouri location and one in Foley, Alabama. They are known for “throwed rolls” – servers walk around the room with tins full of piping hot popovers, diners raise their hands, and a roll is pitched to them. (Note of […]
