The Big McFatty Melt
A Hamburger Today (blog) ^ | 29 May 2009 | Nick Solares

Posted on 06/01/2009 9:12:39 AM PDT by angkor

Just for entertainment:

I saw this on Friday but forgot to post it.

The blog "A Hamburger Today" has been running these insane burger creations for a couple years, and The Big McFatty Melt is just a new one on that theme.

TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Food; Science
KEYWORDS: burgers; hamburgers; insaneburgers; killerburgers
They have a lot of fun with this theme.

See the blog itself for links to previous unbelievable "McFatty" creations. My personal favorite is "The Double(!) Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt", located here:

Also a must-see is "Big MacChicken Mashup: A McDonald's Big Mac with Chicken Patties for Buns."

Hmmm. Fatty Melt. OK. What the hell. I survived one heart attack already. Go for broke! I'll take the double, and hold the onions! Uh-oh...my heart stopped.

It's THREE grilled cheese sandwiches encasing TWO beef patties, with pickles, special sauce, lettuce, and EXTRA CHEESE!

I could house that thing ('cept no cheese, can't do the dairy). I have the metabolism of a shrew.

I'm having lunch at my desk and after seeing that burger my lunch seems inadequate.

Some burger joint called Lunchbox Laboratory in Seattle. More here:

You should check out that link above to the photos of Lunchbox Laboratory.

Seems like every one of their magnificent burger contructions includes “7 strips of Maple bacon.”

Just take a look!

Meat that rare would cause massive intestinal failure. At least in me. :)

Bacon. Yes. Bacon. - Yum.

Just to let you know that you are not alone ... Amazon sells this J&D's Baconnaise Ultimate Bacon Lover's Gift Pack (Baconnaise Bacon Flavor Spread, 6-Flavors Bacon Salt and Bacon Flavor Lip Balm). I just learned of it over the weekend and I feel my will power slipping, dwindling, ebbing, diminishing ...

You want a side order of Pasta Alfredo with that? How about an added patty of foie gras on the burger to 'top it off'?

Eating rare hamburger is another form of Russian roulette.

Kewl paddles, is that the 12 volt toasted cheeze sandwich maker from GM.? Fits in any glove compartment? Makes burgers
and defibulates them at the same time?

Excerpt from http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2009/may/15/world-best-sandwich

In Sicily, one of the last stops on the trip, I found myself by a small harbourside cafe eating a Pani Ca Meusa, an extraordinary sandwich of offal simmered in lard, served on a soft roll, sprinkled with salt and doused with lemon juice. The sandwich is served “single” with just calf spleen or “married” to a few slices of lung meat and is easily one of the best things I have ever eaten.

Y know, If McD would just listen to me they’d have a winner,

Make a Big Mack with Two quarter pounder patties and they’d
really have the “Super Mack”. Copyright 2009 Tet68.

Why doesn’t McDonald’s sell a proper bacon sandwich? Big mac bun, 8 full strips of bacon, real mayo. Lettuce & tomato if the wife is in the car...

Yes, well.... the three grilled cheese sandwich “buns” - and then the extra cheese - might be a bit too much for me.

It’s the concept and the aesthetics of the thing that get me.

You are now entering into Scottish “deep fried Snickers” territory :)

I like the addition of the French Fries in the background of your photo.

A little chocolate/bacon mayo dip would be nice for those.

I loved our neighborhood joint that featured the cardiac breakfast sanwich special.

Pork Roll (Taylor Ham)
Bacon
Real Ham
Saugage Patty
3 Eggs
American and Cheddar Cheese
A hash brown

All squished into a butter dipped toasted hard roll.

Also don’t miss http://thisiswhyyourefat.com — they’ve got all sorts of heart-attack causing food along these lines. I like the bacon cinnamon roll ... mmmm!

Yeah, that’s a really hair-raising site.

How about “Chicken topped with pepperoni, ham and garlic butter on french fries covered in cheese.”

Just the sound of it is giving me a coronary.

I suppose the chicken is “healthy”, for those who care such things.

Oh c'mon.

Wouldn't you really rather have a nice chunk of stale bagel with a teeny wedge of tomato on top?

So healthy!

You might be infringing on my own copyright for the McFiveWhopCountryQP with CajunCheddarSausage fries and a side of choco-bacon-mint mayo.

I mean, if we’re gonna commit suicide, let’s at least make the Coroner have to chisle the smile off my face.....

After Obama gets done with us, that might be the only thing I could afford.
