Grilled Cheese Hamburger?!?!

Related topics: , , , , , , , , , , ,

A friend of a friend told me about something he made the other day at work: A grilled cheese burger. What is that you ask? Well, it is two grilled cheese sandwiches that are used as the buns for a hamburger.

I know, right? Doesn’t that make you want to cry it sounds so totally over the top and wonderful? I understand that it is pushing the envelope, but to each his own. Personally, I have every intention of trying it at some point. I don’t think I could handle it on a regular basis, but I cannot live without having carnal knowledge of that meal.

Just sit and think about it for a little bit…. And if you live near me, and are man enough, lets plans a cookout in early springĀ and make this happen.

P.S. My friend John just told me about this burger that takes it even a step further at Vortex in Atlanta:

Twice as big as the Coronary Bypass (which is a half pound!) Topped with
two fried eggs, six slices of American cheese, and
eight slices of bacon, all served between the two
grilled cheese sandwiches that we use in place of
the regular hamburger buns.

(Thanks Eric for the original inspiration. You are a true hedonist.)

    It sounds like it should debut on the website ‘this is why you’re fat’. People take pictures of their food and post it there. I would love to have a taste of it if someone else ordered it. <3

    Okay, got you beat. Having lived in Hawaii for a couple of years on Uncle Sam’s dime… Behold… the LOCO MOCO.

    Medium sized bowl of pork fried rice, topped with a large hamburger pattie (patty?) (patty cake?) (stay focused), topped with an egg (fried over easy of course)… and for the topperoonie? Smother it all in delicous brown gravy?

    No wonder the collective body mass index of Hawaii is measured in kilotons.

    Damn it I love food in Hawaii! I remember you giving me my first, wonderful taste of spam sushi…. Changed my life. Ohhh, I need to do a post on that soon. And you’ll be invited to partake of the sinful, salty goodness that spam sushi is.

    I remember living in Hawaii, and my parents would always look on in utter disgust at things like spam musibi or the loco moco, but all I can remember is they are so freaking delicious — and so impossible to find outside of Hawaii!! Maybe part of my I like it so much is that lot of my memories are associated with food in general, and they are very tied to places — like Hawaiian food reminds me of innocent, fun, playful days, and French food reminds me of summer evenings in my uncle’s orchards. But really, I wish people would give it more of a chance — especially the whole spam thing. :D
