A Gourmet Cheezeburger

Get fancy with the grill. Next time you order a cheeseburger, bring your friendly GRLLMSTR a sliced up Granny Smith (a green apple, silly) and ask for a cheeseburger with cheddar. If you want a condiment on that burger, steer away from ketchup or bbq sauce. Go for DIJON mustard and/or honey. Nom nom nom.

Taco Lettuce Wraps

Don’t like break? What the hell is wrong with you. Well that’s okay, here’s a “sandwich” you can make sans le carbs.

Ingredients:

a large piece of lettuce (a leaf? Is that what you call them? I really have no fucking clue. look for them at the burger/condiment station thang)

tomatoes (chop these up or slice in strips)

a slice of cheddar (cut into strips)

chicken (grab some from the buffet line and scrape off whatever sauce is on there, and slice)

chickpeas or kidney beans (or if black beans are available GET THOSE THEY ARE SO YUMMY)

onions (chop them up too)

salsa

guacamole (optional)

Instructions:

Slice up all ingredients that need to be sliced. Place your lettuce on a plate and dump tomatoes, cheese, chicken, beans, onions and salsa all up in there. Make sure you leave enough room to “wrap” the lettuce-taco-thing up. Dip in guacamole if desired.

Note: For a BURRITO wrap, add some rice!

Revamped Buffalo Chicken

They’re serving some chicken breast dish. It looks meh. So scrape that sauce off and revamp this shit.

Ingredients:

1 chicken breast taken from a dining hall dish (or whatever cut you want)

5 spoonfuls of hot sauce (Frank’s is great, Tabasco works too)

2 spoonfuls of blue cheese or blue cheese dressing (if you’re salad bar has crumbled blue cheese then you are golden)

Instructions:

Scrape off the chicken’s original sauce with a spoon or dull knife. Slice chicken into strips. In a small bowl or coffee mug, mix hot sauce and blue cheese component. Smother your chicken with hot blue cheese sex.

Note: If you can, heat up your sauce in a microwave for 20 seconds. You can also keep the hot sauce and cheese separated. Douse your chicken in hot sauce, and then either crumble blue cheese on top or use blue cheese dressing as a dipping sauce. You can also replace blue cheese dressing with ranch.
