…Subway serves bison?

Subway Prank

Subway touts its restaurant as an easy way to eat fresh, but I’d be willing to bet that the bison that goes into their bison noodle soup has been sitting in a freezer for quite some time before finding its way into the soup de jure. It’s not like bison just roam the streets, looking to end their lives as a local Subway soup, I’m sure they have to be imported from somewhere. Actually, Subway doesn’t serve a bison noodle soup, but don’t tell that to the customers who fell victim to this slightly amusing prank. By copying the soup name card that Subway uses to advertise their soups and then creating a new and slightly modified version, one prankster was able to offer such delights as sunset minestrone, fiesta queso con queso, and cream of regret to hungry customers. The site documenting this Subway switcheroo also encourages other pranksters to follow suit with a template that can be used to create a unique concoction that is sure to surprise many a hungry customer. Musty mushroom anyone?

…Pepperoni pizza makes good soup?

Pizza Soup

Pepperoni Pizza Soup is definitely going to be my next home cooked meal. I like pepperoni pizza, and I like soup, so anything that combines these has got to be good, right? The recipe comes courtesy of Ham on the Street, a Food Network show about comedy and food. There’s nothing funny about Pepperoni Pizza Soup though, this meal is all business.

    2 1/2 cups prepared tomato-basil-garlic soup
    1 1/2 cups water
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni (or other short pasta such as ditalini or alphabets)
    2 green onions, sliced
    2 teaspoons dried oregano, plus more for broiling
    1/3 cup diced pepperoni
    1 cup grated mozzarella
    1 cup grated Cheddar

    Preheat the broiler.

    Put the tomato soup, water, and garlic into a large pot and bring it to a boil over high heat. When it is boiling, add the macaroni, green onions, oregano, and pepperoni and stir well. When the macaroni is cooked, about 6 to 8 minutes, pour the soup into oven safe bowls. Top each with 1/4 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup Cheddar. Sprinkle on some oregano and put under the broiler until the cheese is bubbling and lightly browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.

    Alternately, you can serve the soup in a small round, crusty loaf of bread. Cut the top off the bread and scoop out the insides. Fill with soup, top with the cheeses, and broil per the directions above.
