Sick?  Subby, you're a part of the problem.  You wouldn't know genius if its lard ass sat on your face and let out an untrustworthy fart.

That sounds delicious.  Old Bay makes everything better.

Old Bay belongs on crabs, and that's about it.

And good chicken sandwiches require a real roll, not a donut.

Unless of course you fried the chicken directly into the donut.  And had some pre-cooked bacon in there as well.  With some gruyere.  That would be totally different.

You're not making fried chicken better. You're making donuts worse.

It appears to be a savory donut, and what's a donut without sugar other than fried yeast dough?  Basically it's just a fried chicken sandwich on a fried roll seasoned with Old Bay, it's really not that bizarre.

It's excellent on beach fries as well, preferably served with some malt vinegar for dipping.

Old Bay is excellent on the rim of a Bloody Mary

ever make french toast out of malasadas?

Old Bay on rice cakes. It will taste the same and be a little bit better for you.
 
2014-07-23 10:32:26 PM
I don't know what Old Bay tastes like, but anything to add flavor to chicken is a good thing. Donuts don't seem to have much input, they're fluffy food holders.

Am I the only one that thinks putting Old Bay on King Crab is akin to putting A.1. on aged steak?

LegacyDL: Am I the only one that thinks putting Old Bay on King Crab is akin to putting A.1. on aged steak?


I've never seen it served with King Crab, it's more of a blue crab thing.  I've only ever seen King Crab/Snow Crab served with melted butter.

To all the naysayers:
Fried chicken and waffles are a perfectly acceptable and commonplace dish. What's really the big deal with swapping the waffle for a donut?

And Old Bay is wonderful, but not great on everything. There is a middle ground. I'm pretty sure this could work though.
 
2014-07-23 10:48:25 PM
Shutup and take my money.
 
2014-07-23 10:58:05 PM
I'll try one, with blue cheese.
 
2014-07-23 10:58:42 PM
That sounds pretty good.

Oh good, I will gladly venture into DC to try this...

I look at TFA and all I can do is wonder how many hours they deep fried that chicken patty in the photo?

Old Bay is what you use when your crab isn't feeling Morning Fresh.

No but I laughed at that...low country boil is a southern dish where a variety of food gets boiled in a pot with spices and dumped out on a table served family style. Spices normally include something close to old bay or old bay itself. The last one I was at had potatoes, corn, pearl onions, crab, shrimp, and sausage.

Old bay is good on all manner of seafood, Bloody Marys fries, plenty of meats and hell, the Utz chips are pretty tasty too.
 
2014-07-23 11:36:42 PM
What in God's name is Old Bay? I know Old Spice, Old Yeller, and Old Faithful. None of which belong in a donut.

Yup. It's a real mystery why people are so fat nowadays. A real head scratcher.

The Utz ones aren't bad, but these are the best:

Jaden Smith First of His Name: You're not making fried chicken better. You're making donuts worse.

/damnit, Bobby


That's a weird mash-up, and I was wondering why the Houston Astros were serving it.  Then I read the article (I know).  I'd probably like it if they would sub out the doughnut for sour dough or rye.  Actually, pretzel would be awesome.  A soft one with the Old Bay inside, big chunks of sea salt, rolled thick, sliced in half cross-ways and add some good mustard.  Does it have onion, tomato and lettuce?  I forget, but it should.

I'd definitely try what they are doing anyway though.

which is why you cut them in half before making the french toast

they finish on the pan

and it is amazing

I like Old Bay and mayo for my fries ;)

- That crab cake you get in ~90% of Maryland restaurants isn't blue crab...it's Asian crab.

I eat at least 2 bags a week of these:

/The Sizzlin' Bacon (with Bacon Salt) and Frank's Red Hot flavors are great as well
//not a paid shill for BIGS

this sandwich sounds like someone just threw together shiat from a list of 'hot' food items.

what's next?  cool ranch doritos crusted truffled pork belly on a cronut with salted caramel?

Old Bay, great on fish and shrimp.  Very nice on a chicken breast.  I use it often in various soups and stews.  Also good on fries.

Never had it on crab.

my brother lived in maryland for a while, made some crab cakes with this stuff.  the crab was good, so they were good, but the seasoning wasn't a big deal (like i said, the crab was good, so we didn't fark with 'em too much)

but, i live in new orleans, and on the very rare occasion i'm going to use a seasoning salt, i go tony chacheres or something like that (k-pauls gave me paul prudhomme's seasoning salt cause they messed up a wine order, and I think i have 2 or 3 others that i rarely use.  tony's is spicer than prudhomme's, but prudhomme has more depth of flavor.  but, i try to use fresh ingredients to add flavor, i almost never use dry, so seasonings are a very insignificant part of the pantry usually only used after i fark something up or eat junk food)

but, brass tacks, can old bay stand up to tony's?

There needs to be a rule about calling something a burger or sandwich.  If you can't get your mouth around it to take a bite out of it that includes every layer then it's not a burger or a sandwich. It's a pile.
 
2014-07-24 09:43:30 AM
Try this - slice an orange. Dip the slices in Old Bay. Enjoy. Let me know what you think. I'll wait.

I was once corrected by someone who works for McCormick; apparently Utz's "The Crab Chip" is not Old Bay.

I love Old Bay. I love an IPA. This wasn't too great though:

Around here we call that a "Dagwood". We're old school...and will pile everything between two pieces of soft, fresh homemade bread given the opportunity.
