Sadly, the above ad is fake. I would have adored it if it was an actual whimsical – or mocking if you’re of the flat-toothed dietary persuasion – but, alas and alack, neither the advertisement nor Crompton’s Beef Farm are real.
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!
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.
