The Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt

From Serious Eats:

A little more than a week ago, A Hamburger Today introduced the world to the Hamburger Fatty Melt, a burger with grilled cheese sandwiches as its bun.

And what did the world do?

It spit in our face. Here on this site, and on other sites where it was blogged about, all we heard was, “Where’s the bacon?”

Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth. I went through several iterations of the sandwich, trying different breads and different patty sizes, to find the proper beef-to-bun ratio—to create a burger you could actually fit in your mouth and one that a glutton of normal proportions might actually make.

But I guess with something like this, more is more, and so I heeded the call of the internets, and decided to make a second version of this burger with what you all said was the missing ingredient. What you are looking at above, ladies and gents, is the new, improved Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt.

  1. Good spag monster on a fork, my acid is rising just looking at that. That looks like enough to feed me for a week.

  2. HERE’S THE THING, FATTIES, GORGING IS FUN — IT’S WHAT WE’RE BUILT FOR, RIGHT? IT’S JUST THAT HALF THAT GREEZY GOOZE YOU’RE LOOKIN AT COMES FROM SOME CREATURES HIP-BONE. YOU GOT A DOG? HE LIKES YOU, RIGHT? HE’S FUNNY AND CUTE AND YOU WOULDN’T EAT HIM FOR THE WORLD — BECAUSE THERE’S SOMEBODY AT HOME IN THERE! BUT… THE FELLA’S WHO GAVE UP THEIR RIB CAGE FOR THIS SANDWITCH WERE JUST AS LIVELY AND INTERESTING TO WATCH, AND THEY DIED BRUTAL. JUST BRUTAL. IT’S SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND AS YOU FEED YOUR INNER BEAST, NO?

  3. Hi KellyG, if your inner beast was fed it might not pop out and make you type IN CAPITALS so often. Feed it, feed it now.

    If anyone has any recipies for feeding inner beasts, please post them here. Thanks.

  4. I don’t think KellyG understands the food chain, or the concept of omnivores, or evolution, or why we have Canine teeth, or how animals are processed for food, or how damn TASTY they are.

    Militant vegetarians. You can only laugh.
