I did it.

Here it is.

All I can say is that I went in to this with an open mind, not really knowing how it would taste. I wasn't expecting much but didn't think it would taste too bad.

It was one of the worst gastronomic experiences I have ever had. I have documented it in much more detail here if you are interested.

You're a better man than me -- well done, and thank you. I'm relieved to hear it was terrible, because the prospect of something like that tasting good just sounds depressing.

You are a very brave soul indeed Doc-G. But I have to ask: why the tomato sauce and why no bacon? Afterall, it's supposed to be a Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger. Should this really be considered an "official" entry? :laugh:

low fat beef + tomato sauce - bacon - grilled doughnut != the luther burger.

that is not an official entry. thanks for playing, and please try again.

My imagination created the Krispy Kreme Bacon (or not) Cheeseburger with no condiments whatsoever. Just a split glazed donut with a grilled hamburger patty topped with melted cheese and crispy bacon in between the doughnut halves. Maybe even with the insides of the doughnut quickly toasted under a broiler, if that would not happen to completely disintegrate/incinerate the doughnut itself in the process, but NO CONDIMENTS!!! That ketchup looks disgusting!!! Imagine mustard...gack! Imagine mayonnaise...urk!

source for post
The burger, which was introduced at Gateway’s December 10th sale, consists of a thick and juicy burger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon. The burger is then placed in between each side of a Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut.”

Actually, this sounds not unlike the Luther Burger named after (the late) singer Luther Vandross ... seems, according to Snopes.com, that he made the burger but had no bread in the house and opted instead for using a Krispy Kreme doughnut .. a mix of salty and sweet tastes ...

Does this sound:

(a) temptingly different? :biggrin:

(b) bizarre and repellant? :blink:

© a bit too heavy on calories? :hmmm:

(d) "this one scares even me!" :shock:

it's sad but the "luther burger" may explain, at least in part, why mr. vandross is no longer with us. :sad:

Ok all you 'ultra-trash cuisine' food snobs!

Here is the version with bacon. So not putting in Tomato sauce improves the flavour slightly and caramelisation of the bacon lends itself to the sweetness of the donut. That said however after some advice from readers, I also fried the donut in the bacon fat for that full Luther burger experience. The overwhelming mouthfeel of grease and fat on the palate however gives this version a worse mouthfeel than the last version with the Tomato Sauce.

Even if you ask nicely, this is something that I will not repeat again EVER!!!

If you want more pictures, then some of you are just going to have to get off your high horses and do it yourselves!!!

For the sake of accuracy, I have updated my my full article, which is posted here.

Doc-G I think I can safely speak for all of us when I say that you have indeed gone way above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you, thank you, a thousand times thank you. :smile: No doubt, for performing this public act of culinary self-flagellation you are most definitely the shit! (BTW, in America-speak, that's a good thing.) As for your observation on your website that......

If McDonalds bought out Krispy Kreme, is this the sort of dish we could expect to find in the future.

............well they've already done that. Behold:

The Bacon, Egg and Cheese McGriddle

Eerily similar to the Luther Burger is it not? Note that the pancakes for this breakfast treat are sweet, just like the Krispy Kreme donut.

Care to go for the hat trick and take a bite outta that? :rolleyes:

That is genuinely disgusting. :huh:

ETA: I don't watch Paula Deen (apparently with good reason, if this is the kind of "recipe" she promotes), but why is this the "Ladies" brunch burger? As a woman (though I've rarely been accused of being a lady), I think I'm offended. :raz:

I didn't realize until now that The Luther Burger is actually something people tried to replicate in their own homes. A few years ago, while working for a record company, I heard the story about Luther Vandross falling off the diet wagon and craving a burger. Having nothing around for bread, he instead used two donuts to cradle the burger. The colleague who told me this story claimed to have heard Luther admit this during an interview. I'd like to believe it's true. :raz:

No great shock that Paula Deen would pick up on this recipe.

The Luther burger was mentioned in other threads about this concoction. Should be called the "Lucifer Burger," because I imagine it's hell on your system. BTW, check out the House Seasoning. It looks like a tbsp. of that would blow the top of a sphynomanometer.

I watched Paula Deen once, and she was making some dish, and she said this, for real:

"I'm just gonna throw some butter in there, not because the recipe calls for it, but just because I had some out here on the counter and just thought I'd throw some in"

Seriously. And this is, pretty much, what her entire show is like. Bad food that's bad for you.

This has been making the rounds on the Internet.  Thought I would share.  It's called the Lady's Brunch Burger: a hamburger, two strips of bacon and a fried egg sandwiched between two glazed donuts "buns":  http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/re..._127127,00.html

(sigh) This I why I stopped watching Food TV.

Yeah, that thing has been in my "away" message on Google Talk/AIM for a while now. It's horrifying.

BTW, check out this post early on in this thread.

      I have been making pancetta for the first time. I have experience with the curing process doing things like bacon and cold smoked salmon in the past but this is the first time I have ever hanged anything.
       
      After a week of curing it has had 11 days  hanging so far (I was planning on taking it to 28 days hanging) Although I foolishly forgot to weigh it. 
      It smells really good like some awesome salami and the outer rim of the pancetta looks lovely and rich and dark.
      It was a recipe by Kuhlman in one of their charcuterie books.
      But when I inspected it today it had the mould growing on it as in the pics below. I have since scrubbed the mould off with white wine vinegar and returned it to the cellar. Is it wise to continue?

      Following my posting a supermarket bought roast rabbit in the Dinner topic, @Anna N expressed her surprise at my local supermarkets selling such things just like in the west supermarkets sell rotisserie chickens. I promised to photograph the pre-cooked food round these parts.

      I can't identify them all, so have fun guessing!

      More pre-cooked food to come. Apologies for some bady lit images - I guess the designers didn't figure on nosy foreigners inspecting the goods and disseminating pictures worldwide.

      Normally, the local market has bresaola in tissue paper thin slices. Today they also had packages in small dice, probably the leftover ends, bits and pieces. Any thoughts on how to enjoy them, besides nibbling on it?

      Linguine with Squash, Goat Cheese and Bacon
      Serves 4 as Main Dishor 6 as Side.
      I stumbled on this while looking for recipes with goat cheese. It's from Real Simple (and it is!). I couldn't imagine the combination of flavors, but it was wonderful.

      6 slices bacon
      1 2- to 2 ½-pound butternut squash—peeled, seeded, and diced (4 to 5 cups)
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1-1/2 c chicken broth
      1 tsp kosher salt
      4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled
      1 lb linguine, cooked
      1 T olive oil
      2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

      Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, then crumble or break into pieces; set aside. Drain all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet. Add the squash and garlic to the skillet and sauté over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth and salt. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the squash is cooked through and softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Add half the goat cheese and stir well to combine. Place the cooked linguine in a large bowl. Stir the sauce into the linguine and toss well to coat. Drizzle with the olive oil and add the reserved bacon, the remaining goat cheese, and the pepper. Serve immediately.

      Duck Leg Confit Potstickers
      Serves 4 as Appetizer.
      These are seriously decadent potstickers.
      I devised this recipe as part of a Duck Three Ways dinner wherein over the course of three days I dismantled a whole duck using various parts for various things, including rendering fat, making stock and confiting the legs. If you're super-ambitious and do it my way, you'll have duck stock and duck fat on hand as this recipe calls for; otherwise, substitute chicken stock and peanut oil or whatever you have on hand.

      2 confited duck legs, bones discarded and meat shredded
      2 c sliced shiitake caps
      1/2 c sliced scallions
      splash fish sauce
      1 tsp grated fresh ginger
      1 tsp grated fresh garlic
      pinch Five Spice powder
      pot sticker wrappers
      3 c duck stock
      3 T duck fat

      1. Saute shiitakes in duck fat over high heat until most liquid has evaporated and they are beginning to brown.
      Meanwhile, reduce about 1 C duck stock in a small saucepan over medium heat until it's almost syrupy in consistency and tastes sweet.
      Also, warm a couple of cups of unreduced duck stock over low heat in another saucepan.
      2. Combine mushrooms, duck meat, scallions, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and Five Spice powder in a bowl.
      3. Place a teaspoon or so of the duck mixture in the center of a potsticker wrapper; wet half of the edge with water and seal, pinching and pleating one side.
      If you prepare more potstickers than you're going to want to eat, they can be frozen on cookie sheets then put into freezer bags for later.
      4. When all potstickers are sealed, heat a flat-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, melt enough duck fat to thinly cover the bottom, then add the potstickers.
      5. Cook undisturbed until the bottoms are browned, 3-5 minutes, then enough unreduced duck stock to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2 inch deep and cover the pan.
      6. Cook until most liquid is absorbed, then uncover and cook until remaining liquid evaporates.
      While potstickers are cooking, make a dipping sauce by combining the reduced duck stock 1:1 with soy sauce, then adding a little rice vinegar, brown sugar (if the duck stock isn't sweet enough), and sesame oil.
      Serve potstickers immediately when done.
