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?

shake

You may have never thought to infuse bacon, caramel and bourbon into a milkshake, but I bet now that you know it exists, you’re heading to Red Robin for dinner. The chain announced that they will be offering a Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake which will include Jim Beam’s maple bourbon, caramel, bacon bits, vanilla ice cream, and a strip of candied bacon as a stirrer. If you want to try one of these sinful concoctions, you have until November 2nd when this limited time item will disappear.

espresso-shot

Why would you drink your espresso out of a small cup if you have the option of sipping it from a waffle cone rimmed with chocolate? It’s not even a choice. This delicious combination comes from Alfred Coffee & Kitchen in Los Angeles and costs around $8 or $9. It may not be the kind of thing you want to toss back every single morning, but the waffle cone espresso would be a nice treat.

mac-n-cheese-bread-cones

Disney has unleashed Macaroni and Cheese Bread Cones upon its theme park patrons.

Ryan Horikoshi came across the cones at a concession stand in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (one of the four main theme parks at Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort), but it should also be noted that the cones have been available in the past at Disneyland’s Car Land and the Cozy Cone Motel. The cones are served in a medium drink cup, and they also come with a bag of chips.

Wendy with The Disney Food Blog chose to get bacon sprinkled on her cone and she noted that the doughy concoction was filled with “mac-and-cheese goodness.” That sounds pretty good to me!

Check out a pic of the other bread cone flavor, the Fiesta Chili-Cheese Bread Cone, after the break…

Becky McKay was going for a real statement dish when she made this Oatmeal Creme Pie Creme Pie. She took six Little Debbie brand oatmeal creme pies (which are very tasty!) and she combined them all with butter, Cool Whip and 12 ounces of canned vanilla frosting. Then, voila! She had herself a creme pie within a creme pie.

If you’d like to learn more about making this dish, you can check out the full recipe here.

pretzel_pizza

Any hope I had of not being a million pounds may have just gone up in pretzel steam thanks to Little Caesars.

The pizza chain is adding a pretzel pizza to their Hot-N-Ready pick up options which, like their regular Hot-N-Ready, will be $6.

Yep, from Sept. 1st to Oct. 26th, you can get a pretzel crust with cheddar-based sauce and six other cheeses as the topping.

Basically, it’s a big cheesy pretzel with less worry about dripping while you eat it with one hand and drink beer with the other.
