Full Episode Guide
  • With a bad case of party fever, Jeff Mauro heads up to Milwaukee to get learn the secrets of the gigantic party sub from the folks responsible for feeding barbecue and sandwiches to half the Wisconsin State Fair. After a hands-on demo, Jeff wrestles a 6-foot hero roll home and starts building his own party sub -- succulent slow-cooked pork done as a gigantic Cubano sandwich. And since he's throwing an all-ages bash, Jeff whips up mortadella and salami sliders for the kids, and sets out bowls of his homemade spicy nut mix to keep the boogie going.

  • Jeff "Sandwich King" Mauro visits Jeff "Breakfast King" Mauro at Chicago's JAM Restaurant and learns the techniques behind his famous French toast sandwich. Back in his kitchen, Jeff makes the Razzle Dazzle French Toast Sandwich, with raspberries, crispy bacon and a sweet mascarpone spread. Nothing says brunch like Jeff's Eggs Benedictwich, with fried ham and a warm hollandaise sauce. And you can't have brunch without Jeff's Sweet Patater Hasher.

  • First up is a Pepperoni Pizza Burger, bomba style! Then, it's an Italian Sub like you've never seen, served with a chili oil for dipping. For dessert, Lorenzo and his friends are helping make Bombini Doughnuts topped with sprinkles and chocolate sauce.

  • Jeff's smoking out the kitchen today and starting off with a Smoked Tri-Tip smothered with Smoky and Whipped Cauliflower and then a Salmon Loxwich With Smoked Sea Salt Cream Cheese and Caramelized Onions. Plus, a Split Pea and Smoked Ham Soup With a Toasted Crostini for dipping.

  • Jeff's starting off his wreck on a roll menu with a smoky BBQ Rib Burger smothered in a pineapple chipotle barbecue sauce and serving it up on cheesy garlic bread. Next up is a Garbage Salad With a Champagne Vinaigrette topped off sweet pepperoncini. And for dessert it's a Wreck in a Glass with all the fixin's; chocolate chip cookies, cereal, pretzels and chocolate candies — it doesn't get sweeter than this!
