Do they actually put cheese on both slices of meat? I hate burgers where its a double/triple/heart attack and they don't put cheese on all the meat. The ratio of cheese to meat must be 1:1.

Quite simply ... it's disgusting. How can you stand to look at the mayonnaise squishing out the sides on top of the bacon. That's enough to make me want to throw up. People deserve to have their arteries clog eating that kind of garbage. I've jokingly said on past threads that bacon makes everything taste better ... and it does, but this is just ridiculous. Enjoy!

I'm looking for the bacon fat in that burger but I can't see any. Politicaly correct lean bacon is for wussies. If your going to get your knickers in a knot over animal fats then you better actualy be having some. What you Americans need is a real burger,



thats a bit more like it.

I would love to disagree with you. I can't. My wife is into cooking shows and used to love Two Fat Ladies. They'd find some of the best bacon in the country and it looked fantastic.

The baconator. My arch nemesis. However, I could make a vegan version pretty handily.

Yes. It must be done.

I was getting some realy fantastic Scpek (belly cut rather than the shoulder cut which is bacon) for a while which was hand made, smoked in an outdoor smokehouse (cooler than an indoor smokehouse) and hung up to dry for weeks as per the traditional way and it was just FANTASTIC.

Regardless of whether you thing animal fats are good like me or bad as most do if your going to get wound up about it it had at LEAST better be the real thing. Getting hyped up about lean bacon is just a CRIME!!

Regards, Anthony

When I saw this thread I instantly thought of the "Hamdog." It's a hotdog wrapped in hamburger meat deep fried with an egg. To my dismay there is no BACON. How could anyone invent such a sandwich without bacon. I never realized it before. Now I must find new midnight snack.

I asked if it was served with a side of Lipitor. The cashier didn't speak English and the humor was lost on her.

I tried some McDonald's bacon burger last night (I was hanging with my friend and his Wife, she has this thing for McDs....so I went).....man their bacon (and their "meat" patties) suck.

I need to find that video about that place in Texas that makes Bacon Fries, served with a side of Gravy. I want some.
