La Bomba ideas

edited 5:56AM in EggHead Forum
Today I intend to search the BGE archives for La Bomba threads now that I scored 7 jars. I never paid close attention since I figured I'd never be able to buy any. If anyone has a favorite use or recipe that they may not have posted before I'd appreciate your advice. Thanks in advance!

  • Pour across the top of a block of cream cheese and eat with crackers - simple and delish!

    Mix with the cream cheese in ABT's

    Put a teaspoon in scrambled eggs - WOW !

    My favorite use is meatball subs or this sandwich:

    grilled b/s chicken breast, bacon, provolone, smear of La Bomba on a toasted hoagie roll.

    Like so many things, I'd never heard of La Bomba until I started hanging out here. Since it is apparently hard to find south of Ontario, I started looking for recipes. There's one here on this forum, but the comments seemed to indicate it wasn't quite the same.

    I also found this one so I may have to give it a try. Having never had the real thing though, I won't know if it's close or not. If anyone wants to take a look and comment on the ingredients and likelihood of similarity, it might be helpful. From the link, scroll down to "Eggplant and Hot Pepper Antipasto Sauce".

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

  • OMG, :ohmy: :ohmy:

    We just used up the last tiny bit of our La Bomba supply (thanks, Fidel) 2 days ago!

    Hadn't arrived by yesterday. Will definitely check today. :laugh: It's a long way all the way down here to the Deep South!

    Thanks! :woohoo: :woohoo:

    I had googled La Bamba Sauce and posted my findings and now I find it in this posting. Excuse me! :blush:

    So THAT was the inspiration for the Stargate SG1 solar flare time travel episode where Teal'c nods knowingly and agrees, "The war with Canada"... Indeed...

    Thanks for the ideas everybody. I just decided to take a taste of it on a plain club cracker - then on some cheddar cheese that Steven sent - WOW-O-WOWSER is that wonderful! LA BOMBA is additive as others have said! I made myself stop after eating 1/3 of the jar. If any of you other Bomba virgins ever get the chance to taste it - you'll be hooked!!! AnD just why is it that this isn't readily available in the USA? I mean other products from Italy are all over the country.

    Earlier today I found this info in the BGE archives:

    La Bomba
    Greco Imports
    Carol Stream, IL
    1-630-221-1001
    You need to specifically ask for
    Allesia, LaBomba, antipasto spread

    So I called them and asked for info. They said that this is a bad time of year for them to ship it as they were concerned about UPS roughhouse handling and suggested that I call and order mid January. Only caveat is that they sell in case lots only. HTH! If you call, ask for Joe, nice fella.
