Remember the bacon burger? You know, the burger made from ground bacon? Well, its creator (who posts here sometimes as PhotoKirk) just emailed me saying he wanted to push the envelope for 2008, so he went pretty nuts. He essentially made a Jucy Lucy (cheese-stuffed patty) from ground bacon and then DEEP-FRIED IT! He says:
It was pretty good, but not as good as the original 100% Bacon Burger. I think using a smaller patty and cooking it on the grill would have been better. Perhaps that will be Bacon Burger 3.0...
I don't know, I think he's pretty much gone as outrageous as possible and that going smaller and grilled would be a downgrade.
Update: PhotoKirk is trying to kill us!
