Grilled Cheese Burger

Right up front I’ve got to say that this pic generated a strong approach-avoidance conflict in me. On one hand, OMFG the fat, the calories, the over-the-topness of this sandwich idea. On the other hand, a hamburger on grilled cheese sandwiches!

Grilled Cheese Burger
Now Just Add Some Bacon 😈

Then I realized that there wasn’t that much difference, nutrition-wise, between the grilled cheese burger and a normal cheeseburger. Given normal portioning, the only added calories and fat would be from the butter used to grill the cheese sandwiches.

So…Oh Hell Yeah! Two great American sandwich classics, the grilled cheese sandwich and the hamburger, concatenated into a single meaty, cheesy wonder. And you could even add some bacon to it.

    If it were only the size of a wee little Castle Burger perhaps it would be; portion wise; more reasonable… hehe

    When you look at the current norm in burger portions, Sara, a burger such as this on normal bread would already be significantly smaller than the modern average.

    Realized that when I thought about the size of a Biff Burger… Remember Biff John??? Only place I’l have a burger…

    Yeah, I remember and miss Biff Burger. Awesome burgers and some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had. Their breakfasts were damn great too.
