I have taken over as the Chef/Manager of a little golf course and I have been revamping my menu and adding some nicer sandwiches to spruce up the old, tired dead menu that I still kind of have to work with but am slowly fazing out over time....
I am just starting this thread so I can spur discussion amongst us and hopefully I may find new inspiration and maybe get a few ideas to introduce down the line.
I have tried buffalo wings but that was a tad bit too much of a slow seller and did not make sense with golfers. I have used my buffalo sauce instead to make nice buffalo chicken sandwiches and wraps and am also doing a boneless buffalo wing. I seem to be having the most success introducing new sandwiches.
One sandwich I am having success with is a hot little number called the "Blackjack".
I grill ham, toast ciabatta bread, melt provolone over ham, grill tomatoes, top meat and cheese with tomatoes while bread toasts, add basil leaves on top of tomatoes, smear "Olive Tapenade" on toasted bread.... Awesome sandwich... simple.
I am looking to add some gastropub type food or "bar food" or just some nicer menu items that will work well at my lower end golf course. I am not looking at doing any fancy stuff and I have to train some not so "Chefy" employees how to cook this stuff so I try not to do such elaborate items.
"Bar Food" is something that everybody everywhere enjoys even if they are not at the bar. It really is just an ambiguous term for food items that are easy to eat and prepare (and go well with alcohol, I suppose)...
What "Bar Food" have you tried lately that left an impression with you?
