Tasty Tuesday-Conecuh Sausage Flatbread Pizza-Garrett’s in Montgomery-#8 or #92 on the count down
*100 Dishes to eat in Alabama before you die is a compilation of food to chow down on Bama style. Thanks to Tourism Alabama, www.alabama.travel my Alabama bucket list just became a little easier. I am going to have some fun while making my way like Ms. Pacman, in yet another state that I call home. Download the alphabetical brochure that begins in Abbertville and ends in York. From the little old diner to the white cloth joint, it is an opportunity to explore and experience pride in the food from restaurateurs who are dedicated to local food with some Alabama style. From BBQ to James Beard recipients. EnjoyTasty Tuesday with Meg.
On a prior blog, I wrote about one of the “100 dishes” at Montgomery’s Chris’s Hot Dog’s. I had a lot of fun with wiener/sausage jokes. But this sausage is not a hot mess, From this visit, I learned about an Alabama staple.So with exception to my title, no wiener jokes. #respect for the Chef at Garrett’s and the folks at Conecuh Sausage Company.
Garrett’s takes pride in their establishment and food.
This dish is described as one that “…elevates simple pizza to gourmet level..”
A flatbread pizza topped with Conecuh sausage, three pepper jelly, caramelized Vidalia onions, smoked Gouda, sliced grape tomatoes. With a philosophy of “The Art Of Food” that encompasses all of the senses, this chef has created a wonderful dish.
I liked this dish and give it 4.5 MEGASTARS ****
* MEGASTAR – good food with a very nice presentation!
* 1/2 * MEGASTAR-The pizza ingredients made it a unique try. My curiosity was peaked.
* MEGASTAR- Menu, atmosphere and service were very good.
*MEGASTAR-this dish met the criteria of using local foods with Alabama pride. Alabama’s own loved Conecuh sausage. Well done Chef!
My spinach salad was served with house made bacon vinaigrette and goat cheese. Homemade rolls with creamy yummy flavored butter.
Boring hamburger order at my table? Why order a burger at Garrett’s? Fresh Angus on an onion roll, pecan smoked bacon and chipotle mayo with yummy lil french fries. Duh!
My miscellaneous two cents. Garrett’s has a really wonderful interior. The bar area is gorgeous (sorry no pics) My only issue was that the pepper jelly made the crust a bit soggy and I had a hard time getting past that. Perhaps I did not eat it quick enough? The flavors of the pepper jelly and spicy Conecuh sausage blend nicely with a cheese such as Gouda. I thought it was a fun dish and certainly deserving of “the 100.”
I am a Wisconsin girl living in Alabama. I appreciate good cheese. I support old school cheese and sausage making. Although Conecuh is a large operation, they offer one of their sausages without MSG and Nitrates-kudos to them.
Non Alabama sausage trivia; Wisconsin’s own Milwaukee Brewers has sausages that race during the games. Plus, there is this super cute adopted stray dog named Hank that dresses up in a hot dog costume and runs with these sausages.Hot Dog,Polish Sausage,Chorizo, Italian Sausage, Polish Sausage (lying) and of course lil Hank #GoBrewers
