The Geek Cookbook: Introducing The “Fatty Melt” Hamburger

Even though we typically prefer healthier fair here at [GAS], we’re not immune to the tempting goodness of an occasional poutine or Krispy Kreme cheeseburger. Unfortunately, there’s just something about junk food that makes us, as “normal” human beings, forget all we’ve been told as kids about proper nutrition. Maybe it’s the impeding danger of a potential heart attack? People do so love taking a bit of risk to bring excitement into their lives.

So today, when I stumbled on “The Hamburger Fatty Melt,” I knew you guys would totally fall in love with it. Behold another one of the most unhealthy food creations ever!

Now, since the weekend is at our doorstep and that I know a few of you will want impose share this discovery with their friends and/or family, here’s what you need to make your own “Fatty Melt” Hamburgers.

  • Four very thin slices of white bread (to maintain the proper beef-to-bread ratio)
  • Two slices of American yellow cheese (are we even sure these are actually made out of cheese?)
  • One four-ounce beef patty
  • One slice of juicy, ripe tomato
  • Butter
  • Two slices of bacon (optional)

I don’t really think I need to explain in detail how to cook one of those, so here are some simple instructions. Just start by cooking your beef patty, and don’t forget that it needs to be cooked well, or until the inside isn’t pink anymore. The meat in the previous picture looks to be a little too red for my taste. When you’re almost done, prepare two grilled cheese sandwiches inside another pan. Once everything is ready, put the patty between the grilled cheese sandwiches, insert the slice of tomato and enjoy.

It wouldn’t hurt to make an appointment with your doctor for a cholesterol check when you’re finished.

  1. That looks disturbingly tasty. It's like the fried egg chilli chutney sandwich, every part of it seems to be wrong but the whole looks like it would be great.

  3. It tastes good because everything it contains is bad… it's a golden rule for tasty food ;-)

    Mind you that burger in the first pic is WAY too undercooked. Unless you're absolutely sure about the provenance and preparation of that meat I'd say food poisoning might get you before the cholesterol does!
