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….”
Head over to DudeFoods for more photos and information about Nick’s awesome McEverything sandwich.
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.
Nick from DudeFoods is at it again (previously featured here), this time building on his 100% Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich by using it to create the quite literally heart-stopping Bread Cheese Bacon Double Cheeseburger:
"For the top and bottom grilled cheese sandwiches I used the smoked bacon bread cheese — or Brun-uusto as they call it — from Brunkow Cheese The middle grilled cheese once again consisted of the same Carr Valley Cheese Company bread cheese that I used for my original sandwich. Rounding things out were two 1/3 pound ground beef patties — also topped with cheese — and a total of six slices of bacon. I’m not sure exactly how much my burger actually weighed, but after holding it with one hand for a couple minutes as I snapped some pictures my wrist actually started to hurt.
After I was done eating my burger — which was completely amazing in case you were wondering — I was talking to my buddy Curt and he decided to add up the amount of calories in it, which according to his calculations is 4,300”
We might have to go run around the block a couple times to work off the calories consumed just by looking at photos of this incredible burger.
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.
Proving yet again that bacon makes everything better, Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) made mouthwatering quesadillas by replacing everyday flour tortillas with awesome tortillas made of woven strips of bacon. And thus the Bacon Weave Quesadilla was born and the day got that much better.
Visit DudeFoods for the recipe and then please considering inviting us over to enjoy them with you.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) has done it again. It’s another awesome exercise in overindulgence, this time in the form of a mouthwatering ice cream cone made out of a large chocolate chip cookie. WANT!

We just happened upon another awesome addition to our collection of The Last Supper parodies: Entitled The Gluttony of the Last Supper, this ceramic sculpture was created by artist Gillian Joyce and is currently on display at Gallery Zozimus in Dublin, Ireland.
