Nacho Normal Trash Plate


Nacho Normal Trash Plate

We'll folks it's time! Its time for the Super Bowl! In Rochester that means it's time to eat! One of Rochester's favorite food tradition is eating something we lovingly call "Garbage." All around town we have  "hots and burg" Joints that all give their own spin on this Rochester NY tradition. This recipe is for everyone who loves garbage plates, but especially for those who want that tasty, tasty flavor in us but dont feel like leaving our comfy home or dorm and just prefer homemade instead of $10 bucks a plate. Here is BeerOtaku's take (and bastardization of Rochester's favorite dish!)
