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. Here's the smack on this meat stack. From top to bottom:

  • Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich as bun top
  • Bacon
  • Cheese
  • Four-ounce beef patty
  • Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich as bun bottom

Happy now? No? Then get a load of what follows , after the jump.

The stack-up on this one:

  • Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich as bun top
  • Cheese
  • Bacon
  • Four-ounce beef patty
  • Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich as interstitial bun (a nod to the Big Mac)
  • Bacon
  • Cheeese
  • Four-ounce beef patty
  • Bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwich as bun bottom

And here's the autopsy shot:

Wanna make one? Follow the recipe for The Hamburger Fatty Melt but stuff sandwiches with bacon and add bacon as a topping to your clogged little heart's content.

We also did a Single Bacon Fatty Melt with grilled onions (another frequently requested topping), for a heavier patty-melt vibe:

Now ... STFU.
