    Some very unusual food combinations.

    Just don't look on a full stomach.

    Absolutely nothing works better than beer and pizza.

    Monique, that looks disgusting. I hope you were being sarcastic.

    Some of us shouldn't look on a empty stomach, cause some of that stuff looks really good.

    I don't want to gain anymore weight. I'm trying to lose weight, so looking at those it makes me hungry, which is not good...

    mm I want alittle more weight. But eating that kind of food is the wrong way to do it.

    I can honestly say the only thing that even remotely tickles my fancy in this thread is the kiwi fruit. I like my food but, christ on a bike, the thought of most of that food in the first link makes me feel slightly queezy just looking at it.

    re: Chicken Fried Bacon
    "dis is goood... jus' need MOAR SALT!!"
    "it's good for you"

    It's a shame they arent being ironic.

    Some of those things made me so hungry that I had to bail out after page 4 and go make myself a sandwich. Others will give me nightmares for years to come.
    How many pages of that are there, anyhow? I quit looking after 6.
    That chicken-fried bacon looks pretty enticing, Stats. I've got some tempura coating mix here. Maybe I'll give it a try... but not tonight.

    From the link

    Double Bypass Burger

    A burger topped with five slices of bacon, four slices of cheese, two fried eggs, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and onion between two grilled cheese sandwiches.
    (emphasis mine)


    I'm laughing so hard it hurts.

    I'm pretty sure it was edited for maximum irony.

    It makes you want to try it. That is probably the scariest part.

    I'm glad that so many enjoyed the link. Here's a favorite of mine that isn't on the site but should be. It's a dip that's easy to make but definitely bad for you.

    1 lb. ground sausage
    1 lb. cheese
    1 16 oz. jar of salsa

    Melt the cheese, brown the sausage and mix everything together. Tastes great on tortilla chips.

    Some of those things looked really tasty. I also liked the cupcake with its own milk cup...clever. I'm not even sure what's so bad about the burger topped with onion rings...what's the difference if you put the onion rings on top or on the side? That's a pretty ordinary burger and side of two onion rings.

    I also liked that breakfast pizza. That, and several other things on the site, clearly looked like they were meant for sharing, which wouldn't make them that unhealthy at all. A slice of that pizza wouldn't be bad at all, and looks yummy.

    On the other hand, there were some things that just looked like piles of goop, or frat house inventions. That burger on a jelly doughnut? Eeww!

    Monique, you have strange tastes for breakfast foods! I do like the snickers pancakes too, but I think I'd wait to have those for dessert (and would definitely have to share it with someone else...that looks like sweet overload!)

    I found the recipe for the corn, cheddar, and bacon pancakes.

    Corn, Cheddar & Bacon Pancakes

    2 cups cornmeal
    1 ts salt
    2 ts baking powder (don't use this if you have self rising cornmeal)
    1 ¾ cups buttermilk
    4 TB butter, melted/cooled (or 3 TB bacon fat)
    1 egg
    ¼ cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded (I have used Monterey jack too)
    ½ cup +/- of cooked bacon, chopped up
    Couple dashes of hot sauce
    A couple good dashes of onion powder
    A good handful of freshly chopped scallions

    Some butter or bacon fat for frying pancakes
    chopped scallions or decorating

    serve with butter, sour cream, salsa, fresh guacamole, corn relish, etc..

    In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, salt and baking powder. (I’ve also just used self-rising cornmeal; if you do use this then don’t add in the baking powder).

    In a small bowl crack open the egg, add in the hot sauce and the onion powder and whisk. Next whisk in the buttermilk and melted butter or bacon fat until fully combined. Add in the dry ingredients, then fold in the bacon bits, shredded cheese, and scallions.

    Melt about 1/2 teaspoon butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once completely melted, pour about ¼ +/- cup batter in pan. These pancakes don’t really spread like normal pancakes so you will have to mold them with your spatula to form them into circles. Cook till golden brown then flip over. Maybe 4-5 minutes each side? They take a bit longer to cook than normal pancakes.

    Keep in mind when pouring these onto the griddle, don’t make them too thick as they are heavier than normal pancakes and will take longer to bake; you don’t want a gooey middle.

    Should make about 6-8 (depending on size).

    None of them look good enough to eat :( I would prefer something spicy, fried, non greasy, and comfortable.
