Once upon a time, humankind was #blessed with the creation of the burger: a slice of delectable meat sandwiched between two plump, fluffy buns. But then we got bored with that, and started stacking the burger with juicy add-ons like cheese, pickles, and tomatoes. And once we opened this culinary Pandora’s box, we started throwing wacky ingredients like grilled cheese sandwiches and donuts into the mix.
Just in time for National Burger Day, let’s take a look at some of the wackiest, mouth-watering, possibly diabetes-inducing burger combos that have graced our plates to date.
1) The Donut Burger from Gordough’s
A nightmare for most, a dream for some, the Supreme Nacho Burger will eat your favorite Chipotle burrito for breakfast. It also comes served drenched in hot liquid cheese, because why fucking not.
5) The Taco Bun Burger from PYT
This is literally what it sounds like: two tacos with some good ol’ ground beef in between. While we wouldn’t necessarily consider this fusion cuisine, we’d definitely consider it the culinary incarnation of a heart attack.
6) The 100×100 Burger from In ‘N’ Out
The secret menu at In ‘N’ Out is one of the best-kept secrets of fast food, but this colossal culinary catastrophe is on a whole other level. One hundred meat patties, one hundred slices of cheese, and no regrets. One guy blogged about his encounter with the beef behemoth back in 2006, which took eight eaters to finish it in under two hours. What a time to be alive.
