the motherload of all crunkness: the wafflewich

yesterday was detention sunday. armed with some vegan crunk recipes, i headed to my other part-time job with a mission: get these recipes tested on my down time after serving the kids their meals. mission accomplished! shown above are battered n' fried tofu slices to make the creation featured below--
now, i've always thought the whole southern chicken and waffle combo was the stuff of legends. people don't actually eat that stuff, do they? in a sammich? get the hell outta here! actually, i remember watching tapeheads with john cusack and tim robbins and there was a commercial for a chicken and waffle place in that movie. what was the name of that place? well anyway, shown above is the chicken-fried tofu wafflewich. it is two special marinated, battered, and fried planks of tofu slapped on a savory waffle with some fixin's and a secret special sauce. it was very good, but too much for this yank. i felt like a snake that had eaten a bowling ball. the lighting was atrocious in the cafeteria so the photos looks awful. my apologies.
ahhh, another money shot of the sammich. this bebeh was at least 5 inches thick. in fact, i had to have my jaw bone surgically removed so i could open my mouth wide enough to eat it. remember the commercial where the catch phrase was, i can't believe i ate the whole thing? i think it was for antacids or something. shortly after eating the sammich, i thought guinness book of world records would call me offering up an award for eating something so monumentally awesome.

Hehe! So you got so stuffed. I usually eat my sammiches with chips or a salad or something, but when I make this, it's all I can eat. And it definitely leaves me pretty full too. When you get a chance, lemme know on my tester blog how the substitution turned out on the tofu...I'm curious.

Oh man, that looks awesome! The batter looks so tasty! I bet it would be great with some bbq sauce.
