    What kind of breakfast sandwich could they make that would outdo the calories on this one? Aside from homemade 5000-calorie whatsis somebody else did.

    Looking at two other high-calorie breakfast sandwiches:

    Carl's Jr Breakfast Burger: 830 calories--hamburger patty, fried egg, bacon, hash browns, cheese, and ketchup!

    [​IMG]

    Burger King Enormous Omelet Sandwich: 730 calories--one sausage patty, two eggs, two American cheese slices, and three strips of bacon!

    [​IMG]

    I think the next breakfast sandwich someone will make at a fast-food or whatever restaurant will consist of:

    -Glazed coffee-flavored doughnut (do they make these? I know they've got chocolate and all, but I'm wondering if there's coffee-flavored ones) halves with syrup dots baked inside for the "bread"
    -1 sausage patty
    -1 hamburger patty
    -5 or so strips of bacon
    -some number of American cheese
    -2 fried eggs
    -hash brown patty
    -ketchup

    And if possible, they refry all of that, together. Let's see how many would be crazy enough to eat that sandwich.

    As an aspiring medical doctor, I shake my head in sadness at such "awesome" news.:( 

    And no, Aksmith, you're not alone with that feeling. My stomach also turned in a bad way seeing the pic.

    I'm a manager at a local Hardee's (Carl's Jr.), and I know a large sandwich when I see one. That donut burger leaves much to be desired. I however, have customised many sandwiches on my own at Hardee's. The largest so far is the 2 lb. Thickburger. The items on this sandwich included the following:
    1 Large Sesame Seeded Bun, lightly buttered and toasted
    0.8 oz of mayonnaise
    " " of ketchup
    " " of mustard (" " = ditto)
    4 slices of american cheese
    4 slices of swiss cheese
    4 strips of bacon
    5 dill pickle chips
    2 leaves of fresh iceburg lettuce
    3 tomato slices
    3 red onion slices
    4 - 1/2 lb 100% angus beef patties




    this monstrocity took me about 15 minutes, but I was able to eat the whole thing. My eventual goal is to eat that famous 5 lb. burger, but I can't remember who had it, or where the place was located.

    can anyone help me on this one?

    That doesn't even sound appealing and I love burgers and Krispy Kreme. A Glazed donut does not make a good bun on anything.

    Wow, so on top of completely inept management, rude and inconsiderate employees, they will also feature horrendous food? Fantastic...way to go Grizzlies.

    Why not eat a big helping of batter dipped fried butter wrapped in bacon grease?

    I agree whole heartedly. I like burgers...I like Krispy Kreme...I would not like them wraped up into the same sandwich.

    you haven't had a donut till you've had one from our local donut chain the Donut Bank. Best donuts PERIOD! I've had Krispie Kreame and the PALE in comparison.. Sprinkles on a glazed donut? Bah. Sprinkles belong on a cake donut. Best sprinkled donut ever...

    Doughnuts and meat. Two things that shouldn't ever be in the same bite. Yuck.

    wow, are they the ones that have the national contest that if you can eat it all +plus all the fixin's, within the time limit, that you don't have to pay for it?
    Even if it's not, that's just awesome that it's in Louisville. That's like only 1 1/2 drive time for me, just a skad south of Evansville, IN. woot.
