I have two food fads them that I consider over-used right now. You know, the food item that ends up on a standard dish and somehow magically makes it a new "creative" dish. The first is the poached/sunny side up egg on top of an entree. Anyone else notice how frequently its showing up on menus these days. Eggs are delicious, but they just don't transform a dish for me.
The second, (I should probably take cover when I say it), is bacon. I love bacon as much as the next person. Yep, totally agree that the fat and flavor can't be beat. But it's everywhere, which makes it so much less special. Just this morning I opened up a food blog and there was a piece of bacon wrapped corn, which was right next to a picture of bacon cornbread, which was just up the page from the bacon mac & cheese.
Anyone else have a food fad they are tired of seeing?
