Default The Fatty Melt

I posted this on my blog last week. Just had to share here too! --Charlie

I like cheeseburgers. There are many words I like to use to describe them, but one stands out in particular. And that word is: elegant. I'm sure this isn't the word that springs to most minds. This adjective is normally applied to objects of a high grade or quality. However, I like to think that simplicity is a large factor of elegance. And you can't get much simpler than jamming a slab of ground beef between two halves of a bun.

Humans (either fortunately or unfortunately) tend to be "simple adverse". As soon as we've got something all set and figured out, we're not content to just leave it be. We have to improve it. We're compelled to somehow make it better. We just can't leave well enough alone. (Exhibit A being Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.)

Just in case you haven't seen it yet, I now present, The Fatty Melt:


Photograph by Robyn Lee

Oh, it might look like an ordinary cheeseburger at first glance, but take a look at that bun. The top and bottom buns are GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES. This monstrosity was brought to us by Adam Kuban over at A Hamburger Today (which is the blog *I* would be writing if I wasn't wasting all my time on this one).

So imagine what adoring fans said when presented with this masterpiece. We love it? Thank you? This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us? No! They said, "Where's the bacon?" Gasp! Where are your manners?

Unfazed, Adam delivered. He put bacon on the grilled cheese sandwiches and bacon on the burger. Zoinks. Of course by now, he was wise to y'all. He wasn't going to wait for you to complain a second time. So in a preemptive strike against the ungrateful masses, he introduced the Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt:



Top, middle, and bottom buns: each a grilled bacon and cheese sandwich. Two four-ounce patties in between, also decorated with bacon and cheese. It's a stroke of genius, I tell you. Or, at the very least, a stroke.

He didn't post the *ahem* nutritional info because, frankly, this burger is for entertainment purposes only. And anyone who actually does attempt it, isn't going to be worried about something like "how many points are in this sandwich?" But for fun, I made a quick estimate: 2,150 calories.

Enjoy!

Oh. My. God.

I could very easily eat one of those - although I'd feel sick for days afterward. But holy smokes. Yum!

See, to me, that looks like heaven. LOL. I haven't come so far as to view that as anything but delicious. Yum. Of course, I would NOT eat that now. I don't like exercise enough to ever justify eating that.
