This Guy Is Making and Eating Strange Sandwich Recipes From The Early 1900’s So We Don’t Have To

@sandwichesofhistory

English Walnut Sandwich (1909) ##fyp ##sandwichesofhistory ##sandwichtok

♬ Winter / Chill / R & B_No517 – table_1

Sandwiches from the early to mid 1900’s were weird as hell. I mean, English walnut sandwich, peanut butter blue cheese sandwich, cream of mushroom soup sandwich? Hard pass like Patrick Mahomes threw it.

But thanks to the TikTok and Instagram content of Barry of @sandwichesofhistory, he’s quieting our curiosity for these odd sandwiches.

What’s notable about Barry is his subtle confidence in front of the camera and the seemingly soothing delivery of the recipes and his reviews on each sandwich. Barry’s Instagram profile says that he’s “Making sandwiches from cookbooks from 1902, 1909, 1941, and more,” so trust he’s got plenty of oddities to cook up and try in between two slices of bread.

Regarding the English walnut sandwich above, a strange concoction of what looks to be like a crushed walnut omelette serves as the filling for this sandwich of old. “I don’t know how I would plus this up, this is just fundamentally wrong. Pass,” was his commentary on this and we really could see why.

Thanks Barry, you’re doing us all a favor here.

Is Adding Mayo The Secret To Extra Moist Chocolate Cake?

@cooking_with_caz

@bdylanhollis @portillosofficialtiktok #mayonnaisecake

♬ Pure Imagination – Kathleen

I was today years old when I found out that adding mayonnaise to a chocolate cake recipe levels it up to an upper echelon type of moistness. On a recent TikTok bender, I happened upon the above video for a chocolate cake recipe that incorporates mayo into it.

As the home chef indicates in the clip, the mayonnaise adds “extra egg yolk and a very creamy texture.”

Apparently this cake hack hearkens back to around World War II or the Depression, when cooks were forced to get creative with replacements in recipes due to ingredient scarcity, as cited by The Kitchn.

Though mayo in cake may incite an automatic “nah” on paper, the end result of the creamiest, most moist chocolate cake ever sounds enticing enough to try.

How To Make Super Garlicky CHILI OIL For Ice Cream

Arguably one of the best ingredients on the planet is the humble garlic. While simple looking enough, garlic packs such a rich and bold flavor that it stands among even the fanciest of ingredients. 

In this week’s Foodbeast Recipe Challenge, our team was tasked with creating a Stinky AF Garlic Recipe. 

One of the ballsiest takes was Foodbeast’s own Constantine Spyrou, who created an extra garlic-packed chili crisp that he doused over a scoop of ice cream. This unlikely combo became a trend in China, which ultimately became the inspiration for his contribution.

Check out how he pulled off his garlic recipe, along with this week’s STINKY AF garlic creations.

Other participants during the garlic challenge include Lasinya Aloo, AKA Indian garlic potatoes (@theglobalvegetarian), Garlic Fried Lobster Poutine inspired by Cantonese & Canadian cuisine (@hungry_jona), and Roasted Garlic Flatbread w/ Lobster & Garlic Confit (@mkubiesa).
