We Kinda Want to Eat This Cheeseburger Encased in French Fries?

A burger and fries is as American as the Super Bowl, Doogie Howser, and overpaying for coffee. And so is cooking up massive dishes loaded with thousands of calories that look like they were brought to life in Dr. Frankenstein’s kitchen. That’s why it feels like someone should be playing the Star Spangled Banner as we watch this enormous culinary concoction prepared, because it’s made up of multiple cheeseburgers encased in french fries and deep fried.

The YouTube channel HealthyJunkFood visited Comfort Kitchen in Saratoga Springs, New York with a dream–to try and turn a regular meal into something that could simultaneously repulse while also being totally intoxicating. But they didn’t just limit themselves to trying to create a burger and fries….pie?….cake?….free standing casserole? (shrug), they also built a humongous tater tot and loaded the inside with patties and cheese. But this isn’t just about the end result, this is about the journey, because it turns out making absurd frankenfoods isn’t as easy as throwing them into a deep fryer, they take actual planning and lots of trial and error.

If YouTube were around in the ’90s McDonald’s absolutely would have stolen this idea and added a massive “cheeseburger-inside-a-french-fry-bomb”  to their menu. And it would have sold like crazy. However consumers are a little more sophisticated in 2018 and we don’t value these gargantuan, fatty, diet-busting monstrosities any more.

And I’m still going to need to eat one right now. Not only because it strangely looks freaking awesome (well, not the tater tot one), it’s my civic duty. Because if there’s one thing more American than having a cheeseburger and some french fries, it’s having way too many of them deep friend and served all at once.
