4 Levels of Breakfast Sandwich: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious
We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - amateur Emily, home cook Lorenzo, and professional chef Frank from the Institute of Culinary Education - to wake up our taste buds with a breakfast sandwich. Once each of them had presented their creation, we asked food scientist Rose to weigh-in on their choices. Which one of these breakfast sandwiches are you going to recreate this weekend? After this episode of 4 Levels, you might make all three.

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/sausage-breakfast-sandwich

    Longaniza! I love longaniza, I’m Filipino, and my favorite breakfast is longsilog(longaniza sausage with a fried egg and garlic fried rice). I will definitely try it in a breakfast sandwich with Lorenzo’s recipe!

  • Fergus T

    The level 2 guy’s sandwich is ridiculous, not breakfast, overkill. Level 1 is nice. Level would obviously tase the best because of the homemade sausage.

  • Jocelyn Calderon

    Is that how longaniza is pronounced in Tagalog or is it because Lorenzo is speaking in English?

    Not gonna lie, I always found the second chef to be the most tasteful, though he couldve skipped the tomatoes XD

    Rose made the single best point here at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1105">18:25</a>. Though it's smaller, you can easily get the entire height of Frank's sandwich in your mouth to get all the flavor the sandwich has to offer in each bite. Emily's is a little bigger but stays to that point as well. Lorenzo's sandwich is a disaster. I'm sure it tastes great but it'll make a huge mess with each bite and you'll have to finish it off with a fork.

    I find Lorenzo insanely annoying and pretentious, his sandwich would be impossible to eat, cut the sausage in half lengthwise so they don't go all over.

  • Hi There

    You don’t know how disappointed I was when Emily didn’t add ketchup.

  • Pettynerd

    One thing they need to add at the end of the videos is how many calories are in each dish!

      I have figured it out, emily makes the food I want 99% of the time, lorenzo makes the food i wish i had the patience for and frank makes the food I pay premiums for on vacations.

  • MrTeG3SH

    I know i'm controversial but Level 01 Chef always make the best food( sometime Level 02)

  • Leslie

    Lorenzos' is THE worst engineered sandwich I have ever seen. Also those are def not lyonaise potatoes he made, they are not even brown. This is the first video where I would not eat any of the 3 levels, Frank comes the closest but i like my cheese melted and that biscuit looks dry boots!

    Emily is that part of when you’re first getting into cooking when you’re just cooking the basics and buying he more complicated ingredients, like the brear Lorenzo is that part of getting into cooking’s where you’re getting good at it now and are just going wild Frank is that part of being in cooking when you’ve mastered it, and now you’ve come full circle and are cooking the basics, but also creating every single part of your dish from scratch

    • Anthony Carrillo

  • Ash Vandal

    So disappointed in Frank. He just shredded some cheese. I thought we'd see him milk the cow and make cheese from scratch. Lazy. Lorenzo needs to cut those sausages in half so they don't roll off the sandwich.

  • adviel

    When I use sausages in sandwiches I like to cut them down their length. It makes the sandwich less tall and you don't risk it rolling out.
