Sammy's Bullfrog Cafe

Sometimes the best recommendations can come from “word of mouth” and I am glad there are a few acquaintances that I can depend on for some solid advice.  

I’m not sure how long it would have been before I would have happened upon this brunch location if someone hadn’t suggested a visit.  Sammy’s Bullfrog Café is a spot that is easily missed as you travel about north toward Harleysville on the main road (Sumneytown Pike\Main St) from the PA Turnpike Lansdale exit (~ 3 miles).  Open for only a year in this challenging COVID business environment, Sammy’s has apparently found a following as the sizable indoor dining space, supplemented by an outdoor heated tent was a busy spot on a recent Saturday morning.

As a former chef at the Butcher and Barkeep and the Energy Station (both in Harleysville), Sam Fuerst has opened his own spot in a former pizzeria in small strip mall just off Main Street.  Named from a derivation of the owner’s name and the adjoining creek, Sammy’s has found a winning recipe serving comfort food without the employment of microwave ovens or freezers.

Cookn_with_tay joins the AMF family

Hi my local, friendly neighbors of MontcoPA! My name is Taylor Gehlhaus and I’ll be popping up here from time to time to share with you some of my favorite recipes! Cooking has always been a hobby of mine, but more so ever since all of our lives have changed throughout this worldwide pandemic. Cooking and baking has kept me sane and I like to think that physically and mentally it has become my own personal therapy. Follow me on Instagram @cookn_with_tay for simple, delicious, and traditional recipes you can share and pass down to your loved ones! Enjoy one of my all time favorites, especially during the cold, wintry nights!

Crock-Pot Chicken and Dumplings
1 1⁄4 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp. Dried oregano
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 (10.5-oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
2 c. low-sodium chicken broth
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 c. frozen peas, thawed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 (16.3-oz.) can refrigerated biscuits

1. Scatter onion in the bottom of a large slow cooker then top with chicken. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper.
2. Pour over soup and broth then add thyme and bay leaf. Cover and cook on high until the chicken is cooked through. 3 hours.
3. Discard thyme and bay leaf, then shred chicken with two forks. Stir in celery, carrots, peas, and garlic. Cut biscuits into small pieces and scatter over chicken mixture. Cook on high until vegetables are tender and biscuits are cooking through, about 1 hour. (I usually try and rotate biscuits around from the middle to the edge of the slow cooker so they all can get more browned).

The breakfast menu includes over twenty breakfast choices, ranging from the standard eggs to Omelets, Creamed Chipped Beef, Eggs Benedict, Chicken and Waffles, French Toast, Pancakes, and numerous skillet creations.

Twenty lunch offerings include small dishes of Hummus and Pita, Buffalo Cauliflower Bites, salads, Chili, Fish and Chips, and sandwiches featuring Crab Cakes, Roast Pork, Brisket, Spicy Chicken, Sweet Potato BLT, Halibut Tacos, Burgers, and as well as Salmon, Cauliflower and Veggie Wraps.  Both breakfast and lunch menus are supplemented by daily specials.  I must issue a warning, as the menu has so many appealing choices, it is difficult to decide on a dining choice – I suggest diners should check the website (below) to prepare yourself before a visit.  

We were greeted quickly by our server shortly after being seated, with coffee and juice service as we reviewed the menu.  (As a point of interest - coffee is served in mugs from a unique collection donated by customers during the restaurant’s opening period.)  With some help from our server, I chose the Breakfast Croquettes and DW Sherri decided on the Creamed Chipped Beef.  Food was delivered quickly and piping hot to our table by an expediter.

The Croquettes were constructed with bacon, sausage, ham, pork roll and cheese then fried crispy and topped with Creamed Chipped Beef and served with your choice of eggs and home fries. The accompanying eggs were cooked perfectly “over easy” that was complemented by the fresh sourdough toast for dipping.   A crispy-fried thick slice of Scrapple was an add-on for the purpose of the review (admission that I’m a scrapple lover).  

DW had the Creamed Chipped Beef that was served in a bowl separate from the bread, a perfect format for scooping with the sourdough toast.   Unpeeled fried redskin potatoes were served with both breakfasts, prepared with the right amount of doneness, giving some resistance of a slight bite instead of the overcooked tubers that are sometimes found on a breakfast plate.  Both of our choices qualified as “order again” selections.
A variety of food choices, delicious preparations and great service qualifies Sammy’s for my confident recommendation - consider it coming as “word of digital newsletter”, even though the old “word of mouth” is what got us here.    Let us know what you think!
