Meat As A Condiment (For More Meat)
— Ace

Why put ketchup and mustard on your burger when what will really bring out that big burger flavor is a Philly cheesestake added on top of it as a garnish?

The innovation is surely inspired by Homer Simpson's famous dinner order: "A thirty-two ounce steak, and to drink...? Meatballs."

We live in an age of miracles and wonders, my friends. The singularity grows near.

Bonus! My genius idea of a "meata pita" -- a wrap actually just made of meat -- must be in R&D in the labs at this very moment.

1 I thought 'meat pita' was slang for vagina.

2 Not quite the perfect burger, really. Only one type of dead animal represented. The perfect burger would be a hambuger with chicken cordon bleu on top - three dead animals, between toasted buns.

3 Mmmmm. I'll have two, please.

4 Don't forget the turkaden (sp) - a chicken inside a duck inside a goose inside a turkey, or something like that.

Or you could go in the opposite direction like the Brits and have a spaghetti and marmite on white bread sandwich. (Shudder)

5 Or a "meata PETA", preferably chicken.

7 I think the Atkins diet has finally driven Ace over the brink, taking many of his followers with him. It was only a matter of time...

8 Don't laugh. Ever tried a Pastrami Burger? mmmmm pastrami burger....

And it's turducken. A chicken inside a duck inside a turkey. All boneless.

9 I'm a chef-wannabe and came across this recipe for turducken a few months ago. If you have the time, patience and money (unlike myself), bon appetit!

10 I ain't gonna eat anything called a Turd...whatever.

11 The all-time record for stuffing the maximum amount of saturated fat into a single dish has be the hamdog.

It's is a hot dog wrapped in cheese. Then it's wrapped in a hamburger patty. Then the whole thing is deep fried. Served on a hoagie bun. Then it's covered with chili.

It's really best served with a slice of bacon and a fried egg on top.

Now that's good eatin'.

12 slublog,
am i missing something here? The perfect burger would have three animals? lets see, beef, the burger, chicken the chicken and veal, oh yeah beef. So is cheese an animal? or is there some eastern airlines mystery meat included here that I don't know about in your chicken cordon bleu? Inquiring minds want to know. or do you think veal is goat? kemp.

Posted by: kemperman at April 28, 2006 03:32 PM (Wc54u)

13 Pork is the mystery meat here. Chicken, pork and beef. If we could find a way to add fish to the mix, it would really excellent.

Posted by: Slublog at April 28, 2006 03:46 PM (aGpO3)

14 Ham, actually.

When I make chicken cordon bleu, it has ham.

15 "Other restaurants have just topped burgers with cheese, peppers and onions, and called them 'Cheesesteak burgers,' but they didn't taste like a Cheesesteak," said Brad Haley, executive vice president of marketing for

They sure didn't, Brad. Thanks for going the extra mile.

16 Somebody order a burger? Here in Vegas we snear at your philly cheesesteak garnish. We prefer lobster, or even truffles thankewverrymuch.

Posted by: Enas Yorl at April 28, 2006 04:48 PM (5wPX8)

17 Enas Yorl,

A somewhat recent addition to Vegas, and long time LA favorite, is Pink's. It's a hot dog place, which is like saying the Titanic was a boat. Seriously - check it out.

Just to review, yes I did say "Pink's. It's a hot dog place." Stuff that in your "meat pita" and . . . um . . . do whatever it is you do after stuffing it.

18 Moe: Hey Sabu, I need another Magnum, of your best champagne here, eh! And bring us your finest food stuffed with the second finest.

Waiter: Good choice sir, that's lobster stuffed with tacos!

21 What about some trouser snake -- the other white meat

Posted by: Mike at April 28, 2006 06:28 PM (XbJeu)

22 Jerkoff was correct - we have the ultimate hotdog purveyor here too.

Remember - what happens in Vegas - STAYS in Vegas - except for calories. Those you get to take with you, after depositing an equal amount of cash. Thankewverrymuch.

23 People on Atkins have been eating meata pitas and meat rollups for years.

Posted by: Lone Ranger at April 28, 2006 06:50 PM (zgXhM)

24 there is something LIKE a meat pita. it's more like a meat Wrap, but some roulades consiste almost exclusively of beef and cheese.

26 Slublog,

Sorry, I my rich white Southern mom NEVER included any PORK in my Cordon Bleu. Do you think she was a closet Jew or maybe a Mohamadden? The only pork we got to eat was cooked on a pit for 12-20 hours with lots of beer for the pig and dad. Why would Yankees put pork on cheese? yeech. Beer yes, cheese, no, too much grease for the delicate Southern taste buds. Kemp

27 And after that, the perfect snack: the hamwinkie

A roll of ham inside a delicious snack cake!

Stuffed Elephant

Skin, trim and clean elephant. Insert stuffed camel. Serves friendly crowd of 200-300.

29 I think this is called a paradise burger, something my sons tried this past week. A bacon cheeseburger, but instead of a bun you use two grilled cheese sandwiches. Mmmmm...

Posted by: Philip at April 30, 2006 08:58 AM (LCPsu)

30 May also be inspired by the "Carnivore Platter" from "Cheers," which I believe was a steak smothered in pork chops.

Posted by: Robb at April 30, 2006 04:21 PM (o+VUh)

31 I'm sorry but the day that I pay 15 dollars for a hot dog will be the day that you pry the stuffed camel from my cold dead hands.

Alton, do you cook that elephant for 5 or 6 days?

33 The Real Steve,

You can get the original Pinks in LA for around 1/2 as much. Really - they're spectacular.
