ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Southern California's Slater's 50/50 has put the ham back into hamburger with its 100% ground bacon burger, topped with a bacon slice, egg, bacon cheddar, and "bacon island" sauce. It's called 'The 'merica." "Slater’s 50/50 Debuts a 100% Ground Bacon Burger"
… Well then it’s not a burger, is it?
It’s now a hamburger.
No, THAT is a bacon sarnie!
Isn’t a burger just a patty of anything in a bun?
At least they got the name right.
Too much bread, cheese and egg. Needs more bacon.
Exactly. “All”-bacon burger? “All”? I think not.
50/50 chance of heart attack after eating 50 ….if your 50 …no offense
Is the bun made of bacon?
Typo — “Souther” sted “Southern”
a grammar nazi using bad grammar. disgrace. try instead.
I think it is necessary for someone to be pedantic and point out that the hamburger, previously known as the Hamburger sandwich, is named after the city of Hamburg in Germany, not after ham the meat. The sandwich itself was apparently invented in the United States, but it got its name from the beef patty, which was called Hamburg steak and which was brought to America from Germany by German immigrants.
And blame Wikipedia for any inaccuracies in the above.
So actually the Hamburger is named for Hamburg Steak, which takes ITS name from Hamburg Germany?
I mean, if we’re going for pedantic here.
Drats, wanted to say that.
Wow. That is one of the least appetizing pieces of food porn I think I’ve ever seen. It looks like something dredged out of one of HP Lovecraft’s nightmares.
That must be one ugly burger in real life if they can’t make it look good in the promotional shots.
Note the knife jutting out of it. I think they had to stab it to keep it from crawling out of frame.
I’m going to be honest here, that doesn’t even LOOK appetizing to me.
Is this it? The sign that I am finally beginning to love healthy food!?
wait, no, i still crave McD’s chicken nuggets. crisis averted.
No one can resist McNuggets on occasion.
Those arms are hypnotic.
I think it may have something to do with how the sauce, egg and cheese look like they were haphazardly thrown in the general direction of the burger, out of a huge bucket.
There’s also the vomit coloring of the sauce that has a vague look of Elmer’s wood glue about it. And that how somehow they managed to make the burger look slimy. I don’t know how you make a hamburger look like something that crawled up out of a fetid swamp, but they did it.
Wait – I’m missing something.
What’s the connection between “McD’s chicken nuggets” and “food”?
I can’t say much for this one, but I will say that Slater’s other burgers are delicious.
This had to happen eventually.
It comes with a side of Lucky Strikes and generous portion of crack.
Hey, are you gonna use your crack?
If I lived near the place, I admit I’d probably try one just to see what it’s like. I’ve never had ground bacon before, but if you’re careful to press the grease out, I bet it would taste pretty good.
Someone has to say it … needs more cowbell.
Also, how can anyone over the age of 30 with even a modicum of respect for his/her body consume this? (I give the age qualifier because an inkling of mortality seems to kick in for most people around this time.)
Meh. If it’s something you eat every once in a while it won’t kill you any faster than a lot of other things will.
Mind you – I’m not sure that I’d enjoy eating even one of these things. But that’s more personal preference rather than health fear even at my advanced age of 40 :)
It looks like some one threw up on it.
And as desert a BK Bacon Sundae…
I want to see it topped off by a sesame seed pig snout. Go all balls, it’s the only to be true to the culinary arts.
Fat, greasy and disgusting, dubbed The ‘Merica
They should call it the “Lizbeth! I’m comin’ ta join ya honey!”
Typo in the name, I think it’s supposed to be called, “only in ‘merica”
That. Is. Nothing. (And it should be called “The Canadian.”)
