Ready for the Olympics? Well, don’t forget your meat! What about a London “bacon cruise” like the one you see above? Or better yet, how about some Olympic sausage rings?
Olympic Rings Of Sausage!
Yep, time to take those iconic Olympic rings, which stand for glory in the field of athletic endeavors, and bastardize them right up into some great looking food – with meat!
A BACON-RING OLYMPICS PIZZA!
What better way to support the world’s greatest athletes than make an Olympics pizza with bacon rings?
Yes, you can make little rings of bacon and watch your favorite sport for the next two weeks…the best way to participate in this Olympics madness! And didn’t it look a little bit like levitating bacon rings hovering over Olympic stadium?
SIZZLING RINGS OF LEVITATING OLYMPIC BACON!
We know that for the next two weeks, there will be a frenzy of athletic activity around London – AND lots and lots of food to consume! Feel like an Olympics doughnut?
The great Elvis Presley, for one, loved food. And bacon. And Doughnuts. So let’s celebrate that fact by celebrating Elvis’s Olympic-sized appetite!
Yes, it is fair to say that Elvis liked food – sometimes strange and exotic food…but was there any reason for someone to go and do this?
Still, Elvis liked his food, and in that vein, here is an homage to Elvis by way of our best friend bacon:
The “Elvis Doughnut”!
Yep, The King would have loved this: Bacon and banana baked onto the top of a doughnut…he could have one any time he wanted…and look at how they were designed to evoke the Olympic rings…nice touch…but, just like the Olympics is the hardest ticket in town, here are some Olympic-sized burgers that are impossible to get:
The Holeman & Finch Burger in Atlanta, Georgia
According to our friends at Eater, this is one tough burger to get. Number Available: 24 each night. Here is how it works: every night at 10:00 an H&F staffer comes out with a bullhorn and announces that it’s burger time, and then 24 double patty cheeseburgers are served to an eager crowd.
Talk about playing hard to get….here is something you can do RIGHT NOW!
The “McSurf ‘n Turf!”
OK, I found this on a “bacon and cheese” website – someone had the nerve to take a McDonald’s filet-o-fish and stuff it inside a quarter pounder with cheese…oh my…I call this “Franken-McD’s”…the unholy mashup of McDonald’s food into something not meant to be observed…with that in mind….let’s see it again…
Editor’s Note: To be honest, if you put enough tartar sauce on it, I just might bite down on it!
Now, back to the “hard to get” stuff:
The Craigie on Main Burger in Cambridge, Massachussetts
Number Available: Less than 20. This “off-menu” burger is ground in-house from three different cuts of meat and beef bone marrow; it is only served in the bar area of Craigie on Main. Servers tip off diners if they’re available, and if they’re not, tough luck.
And talk about playing hard to get – look at this bad boy!
The Luther at ChurchKey in Washington, DC
Number Available: 30 every Sunday. ChurchKey pastry chef Tiffany MacIsaac told the Washington City Paper they used to make as many Luthers as people wanted, until one day “We fried so many doughnuts one day, the fryer broke.” Now the fried chicken/bacon sandwich on a brioche doughnut with maple-chicken jus and candied pecans is only available to 30 lucky diners every Sunday.
Did you hear what I said? It’s a “fried chicken/bacon sandwich on a brioche doughnut!”
It sure is! You want bigger? CRAZIER? Well here you go!
The Mega Mel Burger!
Yep, the “MEGA MEL!” This monstrous burger is built with five pounds of beef, one pound of bacon and a quarter pound of cheese – yes, ONE POUND OF BACON!
So, in closing, remember that, as you watch the greatest Athletes in the world compete, stick you mouth around something Olympian and bite down hard!
