Many of you probably know that I’m a savory breakfast person. And while a Breakfast/Bounty Platter sometimes fits the bill, you know I’m always on the lookout for some of the more unique items offered on property. While scouting menus on the WDW website, I decided I would make my way over to Everything Pop at the Pop Century Resort to try their Chicken Fried Chicken with Sausage Gravy. In addition to the generous piece of chicken (it filled nearly half the plate) were two big scoops of scrambled eggs.
I’m a big fan of a simple Caprese sandwich or salad. I’ve ordered several on WDW property throughout the years, be it from Crew’s Cup, Earl of Sandwich, Portobello… The list goes on. I’m especially appreciative of them in the summer, when, even with heartier bread when in sandwich form, they don’t necessarily leave you feeling weighed down. While making my way home from a visit to Art of Animation, I ordered their Caprese Sandwich to go. The sandwich features Vine-ripened Tomato, fresh Mozzarella, Basil Leaves, and Balsamic Drizzle on Ciabatta with House-made Chips or Coleslaw. I’ve had their coleslaw in the past, but it wasn’t a standout, so I opted for the chips.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve done a Disney at Home post. I had been poring over my cookbooks and have found a few recipes I want to try, and there are a few on my list. After my lunch at Sanaa the other day, I stopped into Johari Treasures, the sundries shop at Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village. I spotted the ‘Cooking Safari With Mickey’ book that was released this spring and took a look through it. There, I spotted the recipe for Sambal that is served at Boma (located in the Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House), and the ingredients resonated to what I had just enjoyed at Sanaa.
The recipe requires only four ingredients: sun-dried tomatoes, light brown sugar, chipotles in adobo, and coarse salt. Once the ingredients are measured out, it’s as simple as tossing everything into a food processor and combining. This spicy sauce takes about 5 minutes to make (not counting some resting time).
We may just be a few days into August, but the holidays will be here before we know it, and if you’re spending your time at WDW, you definitely want to start making your dining reservations if you haven’t already.
