There's a wealth of food showcased in HBO's genre-defining classic The Sopranos, but few (if any) surround a real, actual human romance. That's right, the short-but-passionate affair between a noticeably thinner Vito and his mystery-fireman-studmuffin Jim "Johnny Cakes". Labor under the delusion that these star-crossed lovers won't meet a tragic end as we share in their shared New England indulgence, johnny cakes with housemade sausage.
NOTE: Any homophobia in the comments will be unceremoniously removed. Don't be small.

  • Binging with Bad Bish...

  • I'm such a child I kept laughing at sausage

  • "You gotta wait fah dat."

  • Johnny cakes are the best thing ever thank you for this haha

  • why did this feel like 30 seconds...

  • I love you, Johnny Cakes

  • Just a question... could we add parsley? Lol. See what I did there?

  • That is not what a johnny cakes is.

  • My brother the first born is the opposite of the first pancake because he came out perfect

  • I think the connection between Tony and Pie-O-My is just as special

  • Funny you didn’t make the syrup ‘in house’.

  • This man always manages to make me laugh, but now I’m just wandering where the heck did he get the metal sausage stuffer attachment because the KitchenAid official sausage stuffer attachment is made from plastic.

    • I got mine off ebay, and it's made by Kitchenaid I bought the stainless grinder and it came with it, I wanted the stainless so I could put it into a dishwasher, the other metal grinder can't be put into a dishwasher and I'm a lot more comfortable using the "sterilize" cycle after I grind meat of any type. I spent a little more money, but I like the results

  • Stoke oatcakes are the only oatcakes I wanna hear about

  • "I heard they found a handkerchief with Carlos lipstick on it" 😂😂

  • Any confused Belizeans here?

  • Who else thought he was talking about the pancakes form Johnny Test?

  • Okay. Sopranos pet peeve, they imply that the gorgeous women that are attracted to the Made men are attracted to the power and money that radiates from them right. But like Vito bangs a Chef who I think is super out of his league, while in hiding and with little money. I dunno I like him but he isnt an amazingly charming or handsome person.

  • Johnny test

  • You should try to make the good burger sauce and the mondo burger from Good Burger

  • yeah they only beat each other up. perfectly healthy.


  • There’s plenty of healthy relationships in the Sopranos. I wouldn’t count Vito and the fireman as one of them lol.

  • Sausage penis?

  • I love you too, Johnny cakes

  • Vito was catching, not pitching. 😎

  • all the food on this show and you go after a storyline on the show nobody pays attention to

  • Please never say my name again it was too shocking

  • “She was a hoo-wah”

  • missed opportunity for code: FABISH

  • *Insert Vito dancing at the gay club here*

  • He didn't mention that he used McCormick Italian seasoning in the pork

  • "Breakfast sausage." Johnny Cakes: "Sheesh, again?!"

  • I don’t know if you could say their relationship was the only nontoxic one in the show. It was built on a lie and deceit. Vito definitely had issues that he brought to the relationship.

  • Johnny and ginny sack wasn't toxic. They loved each other.

  • What does the puff put in his cakes. Salty man batter?

  • These are actually pretty bland with butter, using bacon grease made it much more palatable

  • i watching the episode just now

  • The "wet cloth under the cuttingboard" works with bowls aswell 😊👍

  • Johnny cakes are delicious. My grandma used to make them for me when I was younger because they were in my felicity cookbook

    • @MrSpartanRage sad

    • Laurann Scarlett I stumbled across a recipe for Johnny Cakes from the Civil War when I was eight. Being a proud Southerner with a deep fascination with history at that age, I pestered my loving Great Aunt into going along with the recipe. I don’t remember the exact recipe, but I do remember the taste: Bad. Probably because the recipe was made by some poor starving Confederate with no supplies and as a result tasted of poverty and desperation, but ever since that experience I’ve never touched them again. Glad to see someone got to enjoy them properly and has better memories of Johnny Cakes than I do, though.

  • why do you always make me hungry at 2 am

  • Yummy in my tummy

  • We’re now we’re gonna fry these guys up in bacon fat. -Andrew Rea 2018

  • Nice to finally know how sausages are made.

  • Of all the things you do the worst food from the worst part of the show.not anti homo it felt forced when it came out

  • Do we have to suck a dick for dessert?! Because I’m out if thats the case.

  • Oh god Johnny cakes give me Outsiders vibes 😢

  • That plate wasn't clean!

  • *Stares in Jamaican. I thought this was really what we called Johnny cakes🤨

  • When he talks about being like a sausage concert pianist @ 2:46, Freddy Got Fingered popped up in my head. "Daddy would you like some sausages?!" 👉👌

  • I'm Soooooo hungry!

  • once you get a big old sausage

  • Never disrespect a Traditional New England breakfast in front of me again Babby Gabby or you are gonna find more than aprons and old loafers hiding in your closet! By the click clack crackin of my knee! There's something wicked on the breeze if you know what I mean

  • Phil Leonardo did 20 years in the can.. just saying.

    • Had to comprise!

    • Are you suggesting that his bottom was impacted?

    • Leotardo. Cause they're stupid and jealous. Named him after a goddamn ballet costume.

    • @Jake Beninato He needs a whole system for it. I recommend putting them on a radiator

    • darkcrane78 Babish needs to make grilled cheese off the radiator

  • Vinny!? How could you break Paulie's heart

  • "captain? the goodship lollipop, right?"

  • He was a finook

  • These are white cachapas. I love cachapas. I'm eating one right now.

  • Aren’t Jonny cakes from Belize ?

  • Shave your beard off. Beards are nasty and full of germs.

  • There are so many dishes on the Sopranos they have a cookbook even. You could do a special or specials on them peppers and eggs sandwich, ziti w the sweet sausage, Carmella's lasagna, deep fried zucchini flowers a ton of stuff from Artie Bucco's restaurant.
