Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.
"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.
Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:
Italian sausage patty
Krispy Kreme doughnut
Macaroni and cheese
Quest blanco dip
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is a bacon wizard. Everything he’s made using bacon has made our mouths water and this latest creation is no exception. Behold the dainty, decadent glory of Bacon Weave S’mores. They’re like traditional s’mores with one meaty exception: Instead of graham crackers, the melted chocolate and marshmallow are sandwiched between two heavenly pieces of woven bacon strips.
"I made each square the exact same size as half of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which as you can see from the photos ended up being three pieces of bacon by two pieces of bacon. Since I didn’t need full slices of bacon for the squares either I was able to create two complete squares from just five pieces of bacon by cutting each one in half first.
Since the chocolate and marshmallow melt so easily that if you make these you’ll want to make sure that your bacon weave squares are completely cooked before you add the two final ingredients. After adding the chocolate and marshmallow it was just a quick 30 seconds in the microwave until my Bacon Weave S’mores were ready to eat!”

Nick from DudeFoods, creator of outrageous edibles and Geyser of Awesome hero, (previously featured here) recently combined one of every single sandwich on the menu at a McDonalds in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. To create this awesome edible monstrosity, which he dubbed The McEverything, Nick made sure to include all of the breakfast sandwiches in addition to the regular lunch/dinnertime offerings. The towering feast cost $140.33.
"You see, I have a bucket list, but instead of things like sky diving, swimming with sharks or other death defying feats of adventure that you’d find on most typical bucket lists mine is completely food related. The number one thing on my list for two or three years now has been to make this sandwich, which I’ve dubbed the McEverything."
"After all 43 sandwiches were finished and sitting at my table I got to work putting the McEverything together. I originally anticipated it only being a couple of feet high, but as you can see from the pictures it ended up MUCH taller than that. I took a few photos along the way as well just so the whole thing wouldn’t be a total waste if ended up tumbling over onto the floor before I finished stacking all the sandwiches on top of one another. Oh, and if you’re wondering how I held the entire thing together the answer is bamboo skewers… lots and lots of bamboo skewers….”

We hope you’re hungry, because it’s time pay a visit to the Bureau of Brobdingnagian Burgers where we’ll take a look at what might just be the “World’s Single Most Expensive Fast Food Hamburger.”
Ordered by Beau Chevassus of Chevassus Studios, this edible monstrosity is a modified Jumbo Jack burger from Jack In The Box. Instead of one beef patty there are 20, along with lots of bacon (probably not enough, because is there really such a thing?), slices of every cheese on the menu, fried eggs, onion rings, ham, turkey, chicken patties, and sour dough buns - all topped with one of Jack In The Box’s signature antenna balls. Whew! The price for this 9,044 calorie meal was $38.23.
Here’s hoping that no one grew so delirious while consuming all of this meat, cheese, and fried goodness, that they ended up eating the antenna ball too.
Even though we’ve barely recovered from our most recent visit, it’s time to grab a bib and head back over to the Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys
Last week we posted about an amazingly over the top Bloody Mary created by Sarah Jayne Pickart at O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah works at O’Davey’s on the first Sunday of every month. The pub doesn’t open until 11am, but eager patrons start queueing outside as early as 8am in hopes of getting their eager hands on one of Sarah’s awesome creations.
"While there, she works up between 100 and 150 very insane Marys, each of which 1) gets loaded with more food than most people eat in a day, 2) follows a changing theme (next month’s is “Props to the Pig”), and 3) COSTS FIVE FRIGGIN’ DOLLARS. God bless you, Midwest.”
It seems that the folks over at Thrillist were so impressed with Sarah’s Milwaukee Brewer’s Bloody Mary that they challenged her to outdo herself, and boy did she ever succeed. Behold the glorious monstrosity that is the “”Wisconsinite Delight" Bloody Mary.
Here is a complete list of ingredients (It’s a doozy):
And remember, it only costs $5:
"…despite giving away a shopping cart for $5, thanks to the crowds, they make more money on the days Sarah’s making bloody magic than the days she’s not."
Sarah Jayne Pickart, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!
If there’s a bloody mary out there that doesn’t pale in comparison to this one, we’d love to see it.

We’ve found a new addition for our collection of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys. This one comes with appetizers, lunch, snacks, nibbles, and more snacks. It’s the work of Midwestern food wizards at O’Davey’s Irish Pub located in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
This ultimate hangover cure is topped with an extensive beer chaser consisting of pop corn, bacon, peanuts, beans, sausage, pretzel, sliders, a pickle and (this is Wisconsin after all) a cracker and cheese curd. Plus a Brewers flag.
"That’s amazing. I’m coming to America just for these," a reader remarked in the Reddit forum.
An Australian commented: “As an Aussie, I can’t help but look at that and think… ‘Is this actually a thing??’ Are you serious? You can actually order that?”
It sure is. And it’s awesome. Just make sure you’ve got a few friends to share it with and some Tums on hand for later.
Are you ready for an awesomely sweet treat? (The correct response is: “Always!”)
Having woken one morning with an exceptionally awesome hunger, Nick from DudeFoods decided to combine every piece of meat he could find inside his fridge to ” make one monster breakfast creation.” You can see the results of his efforts here: a spectacular Seven Layer Breakfast Sandwich featuring bacon, turkey bacon, ham, turkey, breakfast sausage, turkey breakfast sausage and Canadian bacon and a few more ingredients in between:
Using egg rings I fried up seven perfectly round eggs and separated each one with a piece of toast — which I also cut into circles using the egg rings — and a different type of meat. I even added a couple tomato slices and some spinach. You know… to keep it healthy!

Feeling peckish? Grab your Let’s Get Messy Emergency BBQ Pig Out Kit and head to The Duck Inn at Oakenshaw, Redditch, England where Chef Jurgen Koller will serve you the biggest steak we’ve ever seen. This awesome hunk of meat is a 150 ounce rump steak measuring 12 inches wide, 12 inches long, and 4 inches thick. It requires over two hours of cooking time to reach medium rare and we feel full just looking at it.
"Brave diners are invited to take on the high-steaks challenge and polish off the slab of meat, along with a portion of chips and onion rings. Anyone who manages to scoff the steak in under an hour gets the £110 meal on the house. Since the challenge was launched at The Duck Inn at Oakenshaw, Redditch last year, only a handful of diners have attempted it and not one has managed to finish it."

Leah Foster, of Dilley, Texas creates awesome art installations using cupcakes that will either make your stomach growl or ache. She has now baked tens of thousands of cupcakes for her art, stringing them together to create towers of the little desserts and using them as a message exploring “gender-based body image expectations.”
An art student at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, New York, Leah “has baked more than 13,000 cupcakes for just two of her projects, but has lost count of the total number she has put in the oven.” Apparently nothing extra is used to preserve the cupcakes, but Leah does need to ensure that they are solid enough to avoid falling apart when she stacks them together.
Miss Foster told MailOnline: “I started baking the cupcakes as a way to explore gender-based body image expectations. It started out because cupcakes were a guilty pleasure for me. I’d bake them all the time, but never eat them. I really began to question the idea of the guilty pleasure. Was it for health reasons or for vanity? Was it because I’ve been taught that there is a certain image that I need to fit in order to be a presentable woman? I also began to identify with what I call the duality of the cupcake - this attraction and repulsion that exist at the same time.”
