Top(ped) Dog: The Dogfather’s Patrick Curel on why his hot dog restaurant is flipping burgers
We discovered this incredible beef purveyor, 44 Farms, and threw a few burgers on the menu, just to sort of showcase that product. A few took off, and the Pop It Like It’s Hot Burger [The Dogfather’s Burger Week specialty sando] was one of those. We want to provide a version of those mainstream trends to SA in a way that’s our style.I appreciate that, definitely. Sometimes the burger isn’t going to be as strong as the dog, or vice versa, it just happens. But the cool thing about some of our feature burgers is that they only last a week, and we hardly ever bring them back.sacurrent.com

Pizza can be healthier choice in the morning than cereal, according to nutritionist
Can pizza actually be a healthy food to eat for breakfast? According to dietitian and nutritionist Chelsey Amer, yes it can. One tip to keep things relatively healthy: Use whole wheat or cauliflower crust for fiber and red sauce over white. And two, use vegetables or lean meats such as chicken, turkey sausage or Canadian bacon for toppings instead of fatty meat and fried toppings. Through these steps, pizza can actually be a healthier alternative than a traditional box of cereal in the morning.

Its this simple: All Rosen does is put a little bit of olive oil in a pan on top of the stove. He makes sure to cover it so that the top of the pizza gets warm, too.
