Sunday Funday Brunch has been a staple at Hog & Hominy
, and they’ve added some new items to the menu in the past few months. One of the newer dishes is the Johnny Snack ($15), a smoked pork chop with a fried egg, polenta, and bloody mary sugo.
Yes, this dish is as amazing as it sounds. The pork chop is sweet, juicy, and fatty. Normally I wouldn’t eat the fatty parts of my meat, but I LOVED the fatty parts on this pork chop! It all melted in my mouth. The ends of the pork chop were charred and I was expecting to not like it. Wrong! It created a great “smoked” type of taste to the meat. The fried egg was creamy and went down smoothly. The polenta was creamy as well and cheesy. It was delicious. The bloody mary sugo tasted like a light, airy version of Tabasco sauce. It was delightful. I didn’t think everything would go together well. Wrong again!
This dish is Southern comfort at it’s finest. I’ll be back for Sunday Funday, and for the Johnny Snack!
