Hamburgers, next to apple pie and statins they’re the ambassadors of American cuisine–for better or for worse–and these harbingers of heart disease might be the baddest of all.
Here are 10 over the top hamburgers that are guaranteed to clog your arteries by just looking that them:
1. The Quadruple Bypass Burger
2.McSurf n’ Turf
While this burger is definitely going to jack your cholesterol up a few points from all the saturated fat in the 1/4 lber patty, hopefully some of the Omega 3 Fatty acids from the fish (if that really is fish), will help counter off some of the negative effects on your health.
This lovely blend of beef and fish comes equipped with 1 1/4 pounder patty, 1 filet of fish patty, numerous slices of cheese, tartar sauce and 3 bun pieces.
3. Big Daddy Barrick Burger
Sonya Thomas, a 5′5 99-pound competitive eating champion, downed an 18 pound Big Daddy Barrick Burger in Las Vegas a few years ago.
4.Mega Mel Burger
The Mega Mel Burger might just be the biggest burger to ever walk this planet (Cows walk before they are slaughtered so shut it). The burger contains 1.5 lbs of fresh ground beef, 1 lb of bacon, 1/4 lb of American cheese, lots of lettuce,tomatoes and pickles.
This burger is offered at Mel’s Country Cafe located in Tomball, Texas. What makes this burger EXTRA special is that if you can finish the ENTIRE thing in two hours, you even get to put your name on the wall! You can have your name in the lights with hundreds of other obese Americans! Just make sure you don’t let anybody pick off your plate or you will be disqualified.
5. The Hotdog Hamburger
6. Mulligan’s Monster
Mulligan’s invented the Hamdog, one hotdog wrapped in a beef patty and cheese, then deep-fried, covered with chili and onions and served on a bun with a fried egg on top.
7. 7 Patty 2 lbs McDonalds Cheese Burger
McDonalds has long been ranked the ‘King of Cholesterol’ and this was for the standard foods they offer. When I saw this picture of a 7 patty 2lbs cheese burger I personally upped their status from King of Cholesterol to Empire.
8. Dyer’s Burgers
Dyer’s Burgers are deep-fried hamburgers piled with mustard, onion and pickle and paired with a single, double or triple-order of cheese fries.
9. Whatafarm Burger
Whataburger puts the entire farm in one sandwich; bacon, cheese, fried egg, burger patty, and chicken cutlet. They affectionately call it the “Whatafarm” burger.
10. Luther Burger
Now, I hope you all find it incredibly ironic that a guy who doesn’t eat meat was asked to compile a list of monstrous hamburgers. I do.
