Because you can never have too much meat on a burger, Carl’s Jr and Hardee’s are introducing the “Most American Thickburger” on May 20th. This behemoth will feature a beef patty topped with a split hot dog and a layer of Lay’s potato chips.

Forget about the diet because this thing packs 1,030 calories and 64 grams of fat.

You’ll be able to get one for $5.79 on its own or for $8.29 as a combo with fries and a drink, because you know you want fries with that.

McDonald’s has introduced a Create Your Taste menu that allows you to make exactly the kind of burger that you want to eat. There’s kiosk where you make all of your selections, so of course someone had to see just how big a burger they could build. You start with an “artisanal bun” and two quarter pound patties, then add:

10 slices of sharp white cheese
10 slices of pepper jack cheese
10 pieces of bacon
10x pickles
10x red onions
10x guacamole
10x tortilla strips
10x lettuce
10x tomatoes
10x jalapenos
10x grilled onions
10x grilled mushrooms
with 10x mac special sauce, 10x mayo, 5x spicy mayo, 10x sweet BBQ sauce, 10x creamy garlic sauce, 10x mustard, 10x ketchup

Moshe Tamssot built this monster which he calls “The Big Max”. He also ordered fries and a Diet Coke. It all came to just under $25 and weighed almost 4 pounds.

If you love hamburgers, then this hamburger hair bow is going to be your new favorite accessory. From the product page:

Features felt tomatoes with painted seed details, gathered satin ribbon lettuce, fleece cheese slices and felt meat patties sandwiched between two fluffy fleece buns with hand beaded “sesame seeds”.

It measures roughly 5.5″ x 3.5″ and is 2″ thick. If that’s too much of a mouthful, there’s also a smaller version that measures 4.25″ x 2″ and is 1.5″ tall. Both are attached to alligator clips to hold them in place.

whole-damn-farm-burger.0.0

Say hello to the “Whole Damn Farm Burger.” This 2,000-calorie, 10-inch tall beauty was crafted by Splendid Kitchen in Manchester, England and it features… well, pretty much every farm animal between two buns.

We’re talking two beef patties, a fried chicken thigh, something called “bacon jam,” normal bacon, “ham chunks” and barbecued pulled pork. Geez, how do you even take a bite out of that thing?

onion-ring-burger-patty

Culinary mad genius Tym Bussanich has done the unimaginable: he somehow found a way to stuff an onion ring with a burger patty. He used an onion circle, wrapped it up with bacon, and then packed the circle with ground burger meat before deep-battering and then frying it. Just… wow.

Two teens in Australia bought this McDonald’s burger for a friend in 1995, but the friend didn’t show up. So, instead of finding its way into someone else’s stomach or the trash, it was stored… for 20 freaking years. There are plenty stories about old McDonald’s burgers floating around the Internet, but this one might be the oldest. As you might have guessed, it is also completely bereft of mold.

It is now rock hard and lives in a padlocked wooden box. Imagine the surprise of some future treasure hunter who digs that sucker up.

If this wasn’t weird enough, the duo recorded a song called “Free The Burger” that explains the whole story. Check it out after the break along with an additional pic.

In what is surely terrible news for anyone who treats their car like a mobile cafeteria, an Alabama man was pulled over and cited for distracted driving in Georgia after he was observed eating a McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder for two consecutive miles. The offense, which I will refer to as “DWB” (driving with burger) is part of an increasing crackdown on face-stuffing drivers in states such as California, New Jersey and Illinois.

Even though a traffic lawyer has reported that the distracted driver law does not explicitly mention food, the man was still considered to be straying from safe vehicle operation and was slapped with a ticket, a February court date and the following sage advice: “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger.”

You have Matthew Ramsey to blame for the fact that you just started drooling. It starts with two “cheeseburger waffles” for the buns which sandwich fried chicken, sriracha mustard, rocket salsa, smoked bacon, American cheese, and a dill pickle in between. Yes, please!

The-Cure-Burger-Red-Robin

Planning on imbibing a bit on New Year’s Eve? Well, you’re probably going to need a major hangover cure for the next day. Red Robin is offering a “secret” burger starting on January 1 that should help alleviate the symptoms caused by hitting the bottle a little too hard.

The Cure Burger, which is available by request only, features a beef-patty with chili, cheddar cheese, bacon, mushrooms and a sunny-side-up egg on a sesame seed bun. It’s also served with bottomless steak fries. Trust me, that burger’s got all the greasy, salty goodness your body needs to repair itself.

If things get really out of hand, Red Robin has you covered.  The burger will be available until January 7th, and it will be priced at $11.99 (though prices may vary by location).

It took eight long centuries for the raw meat that Mongolian soldiers stashed under their saddles to evolve into the modern hamburger we know and love today. But the burger’s journey is an interesting one, and if you’d like to learn more, you can watch this clip from Nat Geo’s EAT: The Story of Food: The History of the Hamburger. Wow, I’m kind of craving a burger now.
