BigMacnCheese1

Why eat a Big Mac with bread buns when you can make a version with macaroni and cheese buns? Dude Foods was inspired by a reader to make a macaroni and cheese Big Mac so he got the sandwich from McDonald’s, got rid of the buns, and created this. While it makes the sandwich difficult to eat, I have to admit it does look like grade A comfort food.

Yes, we all know that Nick from Dude Foods loves bacon. If the man had a Game of Thrones style family sigil, I guarantee that bacon (along with the words “Never stop frying”) would be up there. But I will admit that I was a bit surprised that Nick went so far as to create S’mores Bacon in his most recent post. I mean, marshmallow and bacon? Sounds nuts, but after looking at the pictures, it does look rather tasty. Basically, Nick cooked up some bacon and spread melted marshmallows over each strip. Then he sprinkled graham crackers on and tossed everything in the oven. Oh, and he made Hershey’s chocolate dipping sauce too. Yum!

snickers-donut-bar

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.

pumpkin pie cookies

October means pumpkins, and the mind behind the deep fried pumpkin spice latte recipe has developed a way to put a pumpkin pie into a cookie. Amy of Oh, Bite It essentially makes bite-sized pumpkin pies with pre-made pie crust, pumpkin filling, maple syrup, and a few other ingredients. The recipe looks incredibly simple, but the finished product looks like you spent hours slaving over the stove. Yum.

Get the full recipe at Oh, Bite It.

jack daniels and coke pie

Pie is my favorite dessert, and I love trying wacky new flavors. So, this inventive Jack Daniels and Coke pie from Oh, Bite It is going on my to-make list. The Coke and whiskey are baked into a chocolate cake and drizzled with Jack-infused caramel topping. Technically, this is actually cake in a pie crust. It doesn’t matter what it’s called though, I’m drooling.

nerd lunch burger

I’ve seen my share of extreme burgers, but this ginormous stack from Nick of Dude Foods takes the cake. He was inspired by the Nerd Lunch Podcast. The show hosts were discussing what five toppings they would choose on a bacon cheeseburger if they could only replicate those five toppings for the rest of their lives. They debated, but Nick decided to just make a bacon cheeseburger with every topping they listed. It includes:

Cream cheese
A burger patty topped with Cheddar cheese and bacon
French fries
Hatch green chillies
Goat cheese
Blue cheese
A middle bun with peanut butter on it
A second burger patty topped with American cheese
Onion rings (battered, not breaded per CT’s specifications)
Chili
Mushrooms (sauteed in bacon fat because according to Jess regular mushrooms are “too vegetarian”)
Swiss cheese
Beetroot (this is apparently a legit burger topping in Australia, which is where Jess is from)
A fried egg
A couple more onion rings (because you can never have too many onion rings)
Mustard

I can’t wrap my head or stomach around this concoction.

pancake bacon cupcakes 1

Pancakes are delicious, but they improve significantly when you add bacon to the pancake mix. After all, most things are better with bacon. Ruthanne of Easybaked took the pancake and bacon combination to another realm by mixing them together in a tasty-sounding cupcake. The cupcakes are flavored to taste like maple pancakes and are topped with syrup-coated bacon and miniature pancakes. Yes, it does sound like heaven.

pizza cake

The only thing that’s better than pizza or cake is a cake made of pizza.

This version is a pepperoni cake by Pillsbury, but it just occurred to me that you could make your own with a different topping per layer and go all sorts of crazy at home making yourself pizza cake.

Check out more pictures of the pizza cake in progress after the break.

Everyone is excited because Fall is here so it’s time to pumpkin all the things. Usually it’s lattes, muffins, and donuts, but this time, it’s your burger. You start with a coffee-rubbed grass-fed beef patty, then add caramelized onion, pumpkin spiced duck bacon, pumpkin aioli, lettuce and tomato all sandwiched on a brioche bun. Pumpkin spiced duck bacon? Who knew that was even a thing?
