Have I died? Is that real? That looks deliciously perfect (and nothing like a butter burger). I'm making that burger.

OMG. You are my food soul mate. I would make the sweetest love to that burger w/ my mouth.

beef is the #1 cause of global warming. next time just wrap some bacon between those grilled cheeses and be a good progressive.

That looks suspiciously like Homer Simpson's "Good Morning" Burger.

Posted by kebabs | October 7, 2008 11:58 AM

jrrrl, humans are the #1 cause of global warming. Without humans there would be no domesticated bovine to fart.

Shiiiitt. . . I'm a vegan, and that STILL looks delicious.

Posted by violet_dagrinder | October 7, 2008 12:02 PM

It needs more stuff on it before I'd consider eating it - lettuce, tomato, onion, sauce of some sort... Just meat, cheese, and bread doesn't really do it for me.

kebabs @ 4) That was the first thing I thought of! This one, sadly, lacks the requisite fried egg. Tried to find the Simpsons clip but couldn't, so I just named the image "good morning burger" instead.

The Vortex in Atlanta has something like this. They start with the "Coronary Bypass" which is a burger with (I believe) cheese, bacon, ham, and a fried egg, then replace the bun with two grilled cheese sandwiches. They call it the "Double Bypass".

I don't know anyone who's challenged a Double Bypass, but a friend of mine's father pronounced the Coronary bypass "a fine burger, son."

Blue cheese would ruin everything.

bellevue ave, i meant livestock (human-raised beef) is the #1 human cause of global warming. worse than all transportation (cars, planes) combined.

if you stop eating beef, it will help the planet much more than selling your hummer h2 and riding a bike everywhere.

Posted by jrrrl | October 7, 2008 12:11 PM

This looks so good. I'd add onions, tomatoes, sour cream, and guacamole, I think. No bacon.

Posted by Christin | October 7, 2008 12:18 PM

agreed w/ @10. Blue cheese is made from bovine barf, which is why it tastes like that.

Posted by trufe | October 7, 2008 12:24 PM

man, bovine barf is delicious then!

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 7, 2008 12:25 PM

4/8 - It starts with a whole stick of rich, creamery butter...

I'm dieting right now, via Weight Watchers. The plan assigns point values to various foods, and give you a certain number of points to "spend" every day. That number various, depending on the dieter's weight and height.

I get 29 points per day. This sandwich looks as if it would cost me about 5,000 points.

Worth every one, though.

Posted by LDP in Cincinnati | October 7, 2008 12:28 PM

Bellevue Ave, we should make these with feta and second undetermined cheese grilled cheeses. Um, soon.

Posted by Mikki | October 7, 2008 12:33 PM

Who gives a fuck about the greenhouse gases? This burger looks delicious

Posted by someguy | October 7, 2008 12:36 PM

old news. knockoff already in the works.

Posted by Le Juif | October 7, 2008 12:40 PM

Bacon yes. And, as long as you're killing yourself, add a fried egg too. That's what Fatburger does.

But, blue cheese would make me gag.

Fuck the blue cheese. This thing needs lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, and A1 sauce. Ooh, and a little shake of garlic salt on top.

Posted by Greg | October 7, 2008 1:11 PM

what this thing needs is a Jucy Lucy in the middle.

Posted by Le Juif | October 7, 2008 1:26 PM

or two. more meat. more cheese. fear the cheese!

That looks like something Paula Dean would make.

Posted by Julie K | October 7, 2008 1:41 PM

Fuck bleu cheese dressing- RANCH would fit that burger perfectly. I havent eaten white flour for a month and that looks divine..... oh man...

Posted by catnextdoor | October 7, 2008 1:43 PM

I thought it was a waffle-burger, at first glance. A waffle-burger would be good. OMG, or what about a burger surrounded by two grilled cheeses that were made out of WAFFLES?

Posted by Ariel | October 7, 2008 1:46 PM

Boo to you blue cheese haters!

Now, what you've gotta do is:

Take those grilled cheese sandwiches- replace the processed cheese in them with real, giant, juicy blue cheese crumbles. in the middle of all that madness, put the bacon. Cook it before, so it's nice and crispy and delicious. It's gotta be all crispy beforehand, otherwise it's gonna get all soggy and sloppy. Make the bread on those grilled blue cheese buddies something special- maybe some real nicely sliced sourdough? I don't know but that sounds good right now, so I'm gonna roll with it.

Now, you've got those babies all fried up, and you did it with butter, because you're not pulling any punches today. And you didn't do it in some teflon soaked jerk of a pan- you did it in a big cast iron skillet.

And after you fried those puppies up good and toasty, you cooked the burger in the pan- you got it all nice and browned, and then threw the whole skillet in the oven and let it bake in there for awhile. Maybe you went crazy, and you put some whole roasted garlic cloves inside the burger- a whole clump of them right in the center, so that as it bakes the garlic radiates out and touches all of the burger with it's goodness.

And then you slapped that big burger between those two blue cheese bacon melts, a nice big ring of sliced tomato on either side, and some fresh baby spinach tossed around in there like a garter on the leg of a bride you know ain't gonna be wearing white.

I have to stop talking about this, I am hungry and aroused now...

@24: Milk and meat!? Bad Jew!

Posted by Aislinn | October 7, 2008 2:08 PM

and add some slab cut Hempler's bacon.

Posted by Le Juif | October 7, 2008 2:11 PM

Who said anything about blue cheese DRESSING? Gah. No, you need a couple of crumbles of blue cheese, good stinky stuff like roquefort or gorgonzola, and a slice of bacon. And ketchup, lettuce, tomato, and onion, in that order, from top bun down to the meat, which is medium-rare. You philistines with your fried eggs and grilled cheese sandwiches and other monstrosities don't know anything about burgers. It's not a contest, it's an artistic creation.

When did you give your wife that speech for the first time?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 7, 2008 3:17 PM

@32: Eating undercooked hamburger is a really bad idea, you know.

Posted by Greg | October 7, 2008 3:25 PM

It'd be better deep-fried.

Posted by TVDinner | October 7, 2008 3:30 PM

@34, it's not undercooked, it's perfectly cooked. And you don't get E. Coli from good beef.

BA, that would be the first time I saw her put MUSTARD on one. And RELISH. I almost gagged. It was like watching a really graphic war documentary.

Will you marry me?

I'll bring my own #8 with lid.

Posted by COMTE | October 7, 2008 4:33 PM

I've just experimented with making such a concoction:

Wow, @38, I think my heart skipped about four beats just looking at that photo...
