Book Preface

WHAT MAKES IT a burger? The bun.

What makes it a sandwich? The bread.

What makes it a taco . . . okay, I think you get where this is going.

And it really makes no difference what goes between the buns, the slices of bread, or even between the tortillas—it’s still a hamburger, a sandwich, a burrito, or a taco. This book is about all of those and their beautiful, crispy, cheesy, melty, toasty, warm deliciousness.

On some level—make that many levels—this is a book about comfort food, just not the macaroni and cheese kind. Well, actually, there is some of that. In any case, the stuff in this book is comforting to eat, but I think wouldn’t generally be labeled as “comfort.”

But that said, if you can’t find something in this book to love, the book is not the problem. Because somewhere in this collection of recipes for burgers, sandwiches, tacos, burritos, and hot dogs, even the most finicky eater has to find something to love. It’s like the food equivalent of showing someone a room full of puppies—because even the biggest asshole is gonna smile, bend down, and wanna pick one up.

And before there’s any carb shaming, look what Harvard Medical School wrote:

“Carbohydrates are foods that get converted into glucose, which is a main source of fuel for our body. It is especially important for the brain.”

Or US News & World Report:

“Eating carbohydrates boosts the brain chemical serotonin.”

So, they’re basically saying if you want to be a dumb-dumb, don’t eat carbs or anything in this book. But put differently, one could say this book might just “make you smarter, and happier.”

And I’m okay with that.

Some Simple Ground Rules Before I Can Say Go:

•Read all the way through a recipe before attempting. There’s nothing crazy in any of them, but like the Boy Scouts, you should be prepared.

•Whenever I say “oil,” I mean a plain neutral oil—nothing flavored. Avocado oil, with its clean taste and high smoke point, is ideal. If I mean flavored oil, I’ll say it.

•Salt means kosher salt because it’s way better than table salt and less expensive for everyday use than sea salt. By the way, some d-bag once made a comment that kosher salt was only for Jews, which might be true . . . assuming Jews were the only people who cared about great-tasting food.

•Use more heat than you normally would, and I think you’ll like the outcome. There are only a few things that don’t benefit from more heat—and right now I can only think of scrambled eggs.

•You can upgrade everything in this book with a fried egg, caramelized onions, or crispy onions. Think of it: a sandwich, burger, burrito—they just all get better!

•Try something you normally wouldn’t try once a month. Seriously, I’m not asking a lot. And my pushing you to try something new is not a bad thing either. The worst thing that happens is you end up learning and maybe liking more recipes, and that’s good.
