Full Episode Guide
  • Jeff goes hog wild with a Roasted Pork Sandwich With Piquillo Peppers and a side of Broccoli Rabe and Chorizo. Then, giant Pigs in a Blanket filled with sweet mascarpone cheese and topped off with Apple Chutney.

  • Jeff's starting off with a Chicken Shawarma Sandwich topped with a fresh Cucumber and Tomato Salad and drizzled With Tahini Sauce. Next up is a Lamb Kofta with Roasted Tomatoes served ballpark-style. Then Lorenzo joins Jeff in the kitchen to make Kiddie Kabobs. This Mediterranean feast is rounded out with a Roasted Beet and Mint Hummus.

  • On the search for healthy sandwiches, Jeff Mauro heads up to Graze restaurant in Madison, Wis., to pick up some techniques from a chef who makes the most colorful and craveable veggie burger on the planet. Back home, the healthy swagger of a Caesar salad helps jazz up Jeff's Grilled Chicken Wrap, while he uses what he learned in Madison to help him put together a Middle-Eastern spiced mini burger. And on the side, a healthy snack that's almost too good to be true: crunchy kale chips with a barbecue flair.

  • There's nothing quite like a flaky, golden, fried fish sandwich, so Jeff makes a trip to Madison, Wis., to get the goods from Chef Tami Lax at the Old Fashioned. Her biggest fans are known to wait up to two hours for a chance to taste her fried Walleye sandwich, so Jeff wastes no time in getting a few of Tami's secrets. Then he heads back home to try his hand at frying up his own fish sandwich with homemade tartar sauce, and continues the tradition by whipping up his take on a couple other dishes you'll often find at an old time Wisconsin Fish Fry, by first working that staple side, mac and cheese, into a sandwich with bacon. He finishes up with a simple and elegant Three Bean Salad.

  • Jeff's spinning a Croque Monsieur with a funky Mornay Sauce two ways, a his and hers, but making Sarah's with roasted asparagus, sundried tomatoes and a poached egg. And for dessert it's Chocolate Eclairs filled with a sweet almond whipped cream and topped off with crushed almonds and smoked sea salt.
