  • Sandwich King

    Sandwiches are pretty comforting to begin with, so imagine the double-dose of cozy that comes with a comfort food sandwich. Jeff's heading to the Palace Grill to get the scoop on a couple of classics from his friend George. You better believe gooey grilled cheese is on the menu, and Jeff takes some of that inspiration home and does it one better with his grilled cheese two ways. Next up, that most famous of all comfort foods, meatloaf! But the Sandwich King pairs his meatloaf with crispy onions and slips it onto a soft potato roll. All this meal needs is a warm bowl of roasted tomato soup. Pass the remote!

    Jeff Mauro gets to live out one of his lifelong dreams when he stands shoulder to shoulder with master slicer Gino, slinging monstrous corned beef sandwiches and latkes at Manny's Deli, where he gets inspiration for a deli day back in his own kitchen. Jeff puts together a sandwich of Manny's corned beef using two of his own homemade latkes as the bread. And if that wasn't enough, he braises and slices a brisket for a sandwich that combines the rich, succulent meat with red cabbage slaw and smoked mozzarella. Then, he finishes the day's noshing with his take on a classic carrot and raisin salad.

    One of the reasons sandwiches are so popular is because they're so portable. And the pocket sandwich travels easiest of all. Jeff's favorite - the panzerotti, or pocket pizza - comes out of a place called Massa, owned and operated by one of his oldest friends, Angelo Lollino. Jeff checks in with Angelo for a little joking around and some straight-up pocket-sandwich philosophy, then heads back home with big ideas. His own version of that beloved panzerotti is first up, and then Jeff tucks some juicy steak fajitas deep down inside a pocket, and serves it with a tangy homemade mango guacamole.

    Jeff is starting off by making a Fried Egg and Oyster Sandwich served up with crispy pancetta on baked green tomatoes. Then it's a Tempura Poached Egg on an English Muffin with a Red Pepper Corned Beef Hash. And for a little something sweet he's making Red Wine Poached Pears filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with crushed granola.

    Jeff Mauro stops in to see his friends at Conte de Savioa, in the heart of Chicago's Little Italy, to learn the secret of making fresh mozzarella and gain a few other insights for his Italian sandwich fest back home. Once in his own kitchen, Jeff takes some of the creamy fresh cheese he helped make and puts it first on an Italian cold-cut sub and then atop the classic sausage and peppers hero. And even your sweet tooth gets a little relief with Jeff's fun and creative take on the Italian favorite dessert, the cannoli.
