Having grown up in St. Louis I am a fan of the provel, toasted ravs, gooey butter cake, rich and charlie's salads, etc.--never have heard of the egg foo yung sandwich--sounds interesting. Thanks for the link to the hometown cravings==WOW--now I can get some of faves delivered here in Texas! I will say I have brought home a huge block of provel home before on road trips--we would cut it into large chunks and freeze it--made shreddilng it for pizzas and salad easier due to it;'s frozen state, it is after all a processed food product
" />, but boy is it a yummy taste of home! Anyone interested let me know, I have some fairly reliable knock off recipes for gooey butter and rich and charlies salads, pretty easy and good. I have a recipe for homeade toasted ravs, but way too labor intensive for me--we just get them once a year when we go home and really savor their uniqueness. Olive Garden's don't much compare IMHO. I saw that cutie Giada DeL. on food network do her version after a trip to St. Louis, though she used cheese ravs, not meat ones, so not authentic, sorry Giada.
