Burger King NY Pizza Burger

Burger King is about to debut a New York Pizza Burger, which contains: four quarter-pound patties topped with pepperoni and mozzarella and smothered in marinara sauce — all on a sesame seed bun that spans nine-and-a-half inches.   If you think about it, that’s like four Whoppers plus pizza toppings, all in one burger.   (If you plan to eat one by yourself, you should stop reading now.)  It adds up to 2,530 calories, 144 grams of fat (59 grams saturated) and 380 mg of cholesterol.  (For reference, a Whopper is comparatively healthy, delivering 670 calories, 40 grams of fat (11 saturated), and 75 mg of cholesterol.)  You probably know that those first statistics are extremely unhealthy, but to put them in context, nutritional guidelines say most people should consume no more than 2,500 calories, 65 grams of total fat, 20 grams of saturated fat, and 300 mg of cholesterol in an entire day.

One website called it a “fat bomb”.   That could be a valid description.  Another way to look at it is that you’re getting your whole day’s worth of food in one burger.  🙂

World Record Burger

I was showing some of the guys pictures of the “twin towers of cholesterol” today, and they were curious to see what the biggest burger ever made looked like.  So after much research* I found what I was looking for…

* research consisted of a quick google.

Behold the “Absolutely Ridiculous Burger”:

world record burger -- largest

This burger weighs in at a Artery Clogging 164.5 lbs… yes, that’s right — 164.5 pounds!

They claim that this is the “largest hamburger commercially available.”  And I would believe it!  Look at this monster!   For only $399 and 72 hours notices you can order your very own.   It’s actually on the menu!  (They also sell a 10-pound burger, plus a 1/2 pound burger for wusses.)

It appears we need to have another cookout at Fab’s to see if we can top this one.

I also found another burger that deserves “honorable mention” — they call it the bacon-cheese-pizza-burger!


Want to make one?  They describe how:

“Just take a giant beef patty, eggs, bacon, colby, pepper jack cheese, and throw everything in-between 2 large meat pizzas.”  Yum.

The site also states that they “will not be held responsible for your upcoming heart attack if you decide to eat one these monstrosities.”
