We love Paula Deen around here. Her creativity, her Southern charm, her shocking ability to still be alive. For this week's Sandwich Monday, we try one of her most famous recipes: The Lady's Brunch Burger. It's basically a bacon cheeseburger topped with a fried egg, with two glazed donuts replacing the bun. If you think that sounds gross, you're wrong. You're also probably going to outlive us.
Eva: This has every single meal in one sandwich. Bacon and eggs for breakfast, burger for lunch, donut for dinner.
Mike: It's missing a chocolate cake layer.
Ian: Watching you eat that, I can see the beef patty through the donut hole. It's like a window to my future regret.
Mike: It is sticky. This is a meal best eaten with gloves. Or a HAZMAT suit.
Eva: Or you could have someone feed it to you.
Ian: Yeah, like how the Ancient Obese Greeks fed each other grapes, surrounded by donuts.
Eva: It's called the Lady's Brunch Burger. It's a very specific Lady, who would eat this Brunch Burger.
Ian: Is this the kind of thing you eat on a Ladies Night, Eva?
Eva: Yes. You'd know that if you'd seen Sex in the City 2.
Mike: It makes me wonder about bacon and donuts, it's amazing how well they go together.
Ian: It makes me wonder if the part of my life I spent not eating this was a waste.
