Carni-sweetpertader pa

Atlanta was great, saw some good friends, met some friends I’d never seen, & over all had a great time. I was fortunate enough to get to spend some time with Todd, covered the usual important subjects, life, kids, & sauce; whilst picking up a stash of my single favorite sauce on the planet (Robust), he was kind enough to give me a bottle of the Carnivore Sweet, & as usual, it went on the next thing I made, so here it is, cousin of the carniswine pie, the carni-sweetpertader pa:

No sweet potatoes used, the sweet is the sauce:


Sliced red potatoes:


Fried in CI:


Baking potatoes, post bake, scooped out:


Rolled flat:


Oil the cast iron pan then season the pan with rub, it’ll form a crust on the exterior of the potatoes:


Potato skins formed into the pan, carniswine pie style, as a crust:


chopped ham:


first layer of fried red potatoes:


caramelized onions with sage:


blue cheese:




more fried potatoes:





topped with remaining blue cheese & onto the egg:


After some time spent at 450 indirect:


All done:




The sauce is fantastic, a very nice balance with the saltiness of the ham & blue cheese, crunchiness of the nuts, & deep fried-ness of the potatoes; next time however, I won’t use the baked potatoes as a crust, I’ll just use more fried ones, they taste better :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Funny what the sleep deprived mind comes up with on an early AM flight to Philly.

    We waited up for you but didn't see you leave this morning. Glad to see you got home safe and sound. I think you left a beer in my cooler though.
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    thanks, I can tell you this one came from a conversation with Big'un, we were talking about a similar concoction, I had it on my mind when I got home, but after eating the equivalent of what seemed like 1/2 a cow, 2 chickens and an entire hogg down in Atlanta, I thought maybe I'd lay off the meat, a little :lol:
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    Rod, were you one of those faithful at 4am, I did see a small crowd as I tiptoed to my car, didn't want to get sucked back into the after party vortex :laugh: , well, I did, but I couldn't :evil:

    buddy, thanks again for your hospitality, you really put on a serious gig there, I know that was a lotta work mang & it was greatly appreciated by all

    Zips, Considering your perseverence at the after-party, the 6AM flight, and still enough energy to dream up another food invention, you should consider entering one of those "Iron Man" competitions! I've got some great pics of you from last night's event. :) :laugh: :P
    PS Hope you're not watching the Eagles. They're stinking it up. :angry:

    You are a re-incarnated John Wayne. My head is still pounding after 3 Bloody Mary's and a bottle of red. You had to get up at like quarter to still dark and you get home and decide to create something. They are made of steel man!

    I am watching this pathetic effort, hopefully the Phills won't repeat this performance; so you got in ok today, got your message, my flight was only about an hour & forty-five minutes, real smooth & fast. That was one helluva good time howabout it, those Manhattans knocked you out of the game pretty early last night though :laugh:
  • Boss HoggBoss Hogg Posts: 1,377
    Marc, I never got one. Too busy pusing them onto unsuspecting Eggers. :evil:
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    its a sickness, a sickness I tell ya... Steven that was a good time man, its a little hard to articulate specifically why, but every time I talk to you I laugh my ass off, & there was a lotta laughin this week; it was great seeing you again & meeting Norma. Also, at the next fest, may I suggest you plan on something that actually takes a little thought, uses more ingredients, & perhaps gets your hands a little dirty, I tell ya you guys & your "I just wanna do something easy so I can hang out" attitude, sheesh

    Did you dream that one up last night in the parking lot? :blink: :ermm: :P
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,408
    Hey man,

    My ribs are broke from laughing. I think we made a valid case for the embroidery :laugh: Freakin Sparky kills me dude. We gotta do FLA.

  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    Sparky is a freak of nature, another gut busting laughatorium of a human being, what a great spirit, & for the second straight fest, while talking to Del, I think I may have actually wet myself :ermm: :huh: :laugh: ; & Beli, what's that all about, I need about another 6 weeks of steady drinking with him to get up to speed
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    somewhere between the parking lot, the semi-dream state of 3 hours of sleep I had, & the partially conscious plane ride home.... how you feelin buddy? If I'm not mistaken, I think I may have seen you drink more than one beer, could've been as many as two :ohmy:
  • Little StevenLittle Steven Posts: 27,408
    They are all nice folk.....just a little hard for them to let their hair down and have fun, ya know. Personnaly, i like to have a drink and have fun but if they want to be prim and proper it's good with me :laugh:

    Amazing, considering what you prob went through the past few days, and not to mention the characters of questionable nature you were forced to be around.

    :lol: :lol: :whistle: :lol: :ermm:
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    well said, despite my better efforts, I now have even more friends in low places :laugh:
  • Big'unBig'un Posts: 5,909
    Brother, how do you do it? That is just amazing! Do those wheels ever stop turning? I really enjoyed hanging out with you this weekend, Marc. Glad you made it home safely.
  • Great looking taters Mark

  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    well, since I didn't cook at the fest, 'cept when I got to be "Ritz spreader outer on the pizza screen guy" for Sparky, I was itch'n to cook something you know... it was great seeing you too & getting to shoot the chit, & somehow, I missed the mini meatloafs, not sure how, I'll have to assume it was the pool-beotch's fault, that little guy is a mischievous one isn't he
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,336
    it was a double tater effort :)
  • Bama ChadBama Chad Posts: 153
    Zip, you're killing me. Great talking to you again at the fest, see you next time.

  • You crazy.

  • Chad, was great talking to you too, & the chicken was spectacular, see you on the next one
  • but apparently not crazy enough to win an egg :blink: , or two :ohmy: :laugh:

    Hey Zipp, WOW nice meal. You could make a derivation of that cook with eggs for breakfast.

    Good meeting you at the Fest.
