Its a rainy day at UH and I'm hungry. I strolled over to the UH Food Truck Pad (sounds like something with shag carpet and a lava lamp!), and saw that Eatsie Boys were there. I was pretty hard on them last time I tried them and decided it was time to give them a second chance.
A chicken poblano sausage, sweet caramelized onions and Chardonnay mustard on a soft pretzel bun. Who doesn't like pretzel buns? Chicken sausage is a tricky animal. Chicken is so lean its a challenge to make a sausage that isn't dry. This one came off well though, nicely juicy and the casing had that "snap" you want on a good sausage. The poblano was diced pretty fine, but you could taste it so cudos there. The sausage also had a nice char on it I guess from finishing it on the grill. The Chardonnay mustard is a whole grain mustard, my preference in mustard. Not very hot, I'm guessing the Chardonnay is Chardonnay vinegar, I could taste a little vinegar tang to it. A good choice for a delicate flavor like this sausage. Synopsis: Well done variation on the classic hotdog.
