No, this sinful creation isn’t healthy in the slightest, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it! This Rochester Garbage Plate is a perfect go-to when you have to feed your meat and starch fix. Boy, is it good!
I was brought up in the Deep South cooking tradition, and I love my gourmet creations. But I enjoy exploring what other regions have to offer, and now and then, I just want to indulge in some earthy, down-home fare. I came across this Garbage Plate recipe, and it looked perfect for feeding that primal meat-and-starch craving that even the most refined chefs and food lovers have now and then. And the wry humorist in me thought that it would be great to go around saying, “I ate Garbage today; you should try some, too!”
I know better than to set my expectations TOO high on such a dish, famous or not, and the word “garbage” is in the name, haha, but let’s just say that I was pleasantly surprised by the results. The accolades that this regional dish received from the Food Network and the Travel Channel were well deserved, it seems.
