You can't pick up the remote these days without catching a Kansas City joint on television. Guy Fieri continues his love affair with our city tonight with a stop in at The Brick (1727 McGee) on the latest episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which airs at 9 p.m.
The exuberant Food Network host was in Kansas City back in April on a culinary tour that included stops at Happy Gillis, RJ's Bob-Be-Que, Woodyard Bar-B-Que, Smokin' Guns BBQ and Swagger. Call it the Midwest meat trail because he's seemingly downed a beef sandwich at every turn.
On the show, viewers will get to see The Oklahoma -- one of the most serious menu items in Kansas City. It's a hot dog battered in Boulevard beer, deep fried and wrapped in bacon with onion and mustard. I like to think of it as a little bit of the state fair that you can get year round.
Fieri will also learn how to make the spicy house Meatloaf Sandwich. The recipe is on the DDD Web site and it includes the ingredients for chipotle ketchup. Fat City will offer up a recipe for the Fluffernutter, which was an entrant in the peanut butter sandwich battle of the dishes back in March. All you need is Marshmallow Fluff, crunchy peanut butter and two pieces of bread you can grill.
In addition to making a meatloaf sandwich, Fieri will drop by Oohhs & Aahhs Soul Food in Washington D.C., and The Lobster Shanty in Salem, Massachusetts. The episode, "Wings, Dogs and Claws," airs tonight at 9 p.m. and 12 a.m., as well as October 8 at 8 p.m.
