    Scrambled eggs are a golden world of opportunity. A little bit of cheese, perhaps some onions or mushrooms that pique your fancy -- and a few drops of rooster sauce to transform the whole savory experience!

    It might seem weird, but a dash of the stuff on rich, dark, almost bitter chocolate ice cream? Pure perfection. Spice and chocolate are nothing new -- cinnamon and paprika and other hotter spices are often found in chocolate. They give it a warming, insanely delicious complexity.

  • Grilled Cheese

    Make yo' cheddar dance! Slap it with some Sriracha. Grilled cheese is already the most baller of all sandwiches. Prepare to craft it a tiny crown out of foil, because with the hot sauce? It's king.

    Whatever you like to put on your bagel, the next time you're fixing it all up, try some Sriracha! This toasty wonder is elevated to a thing of beauty with an assist from the rooster. Personally, I think everything bagels work the best. Stokes out.

  • Popcorn
