These 11 super-sized sandwiches laugh in the face of healthy eating, taking sandwich-making to dangerous new levels.

 

WARNING: The following sandwiches are not for the easily shocked, so those with heart conditions or high cholesterol should look away now…

 

The KFC Zinger Tower Burger

 

 

Because fried chicken just isn’t enough, KFC’s Zinger Tower stacks boneless spicy fried chicken, melted cheese and onion rings with tomato sauce and mayonnaise racking up 660 calories and 33.5g of fat. “Finger lickin’ bad…”

 

The Pork Hammer

 

 

 

Big Ass Sandwiches of Portland, Oregon is home to creations like the ‘Gut Bomb’ and their signature creation ‘The Pork Hammer’; piled high with ham, sausage and bacon, topped with fistfuls of home-cut fries and masses of coleslaw, giving the term ‘pigging out’ a whole new meaning.

 

Grilled Cheese Burger Melt

 

 

Friendly's grilled cheese burger melt packs a gut-busting punch with a hefty beef patty nestled in between two grilled cheese sandwiches, serving up a whopping 1,500 calories and 97g of fat. Not so ‘Friendly’ after all.

 

Redonkadonk

 

 

 

The only thing more ridiculous than its name is the list of ingredients it contains. If a meat-fix is what you are looking for, then Brunchbox in Portland, Oregon has just what you need. The Redonkadonk boasts a jumbo filling of eggs, ham, spam, bacon and cheese on a beef patty sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches; a creation so ridiculous, they gave it a name to match.

 

Doner Kebab

 

 

 

Doner kebabs remain one of our favourite foods to tuck into after a night out, but healthy they are not. Just a small doner kebab contains 1,000 calories and 63g of fat! Large portions contain closer to 2,000 calories and well over 100g of fat. This is heart attack food at its finest.

 

The ‘Fat Daddy’

 

 

Munchies 420 Café in Sarasota, Florida has created a monster. ‘The Fat Daddy’ is a back-breaking creation, filled with chopped steak, mushroom, onions, peppers, a cheeseburger, chicken fingers, breaded mozzarella sticks, potato wedges, lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise. Dessert anyone?

 

The Monte Cristo

 

 

 

Head to the Rusty Pelican Café in Seattle, Washington where you can indulge in a ‘Monte Cristo’ two doorstep slices of cinnamon swirl bread dipped and fried in egg batter encasing slices of ham, turkey and Swiss cheese dusted with icing sugar, served with jam.

 

Michigan BLT

 

 

‘Tony’s I-75’ in Birch Run, Michigan is home to the Michigan BLT. With a whole pound of bacon, this BLT clocks up an astounding 4,000 calories and 190g of fat; guaranteed to satisfy even the hungriest of carnivores. But with so much ‘B’, you’d be hard pushed to find the ‘L’ or ‘T’ that make this a classic example of the sandwich.

 

‘Eat’ Club Sandwich

 

 

The innocent looking club sandwich from Eat contains turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, spinach and tomatoes all topped off with a Dijon mustard mayonnaise totalling an eye-watering 768 calories and a shocking 46.1g of fat. 'To Eat or not to Eat? That is the question.'

 

 

Quadruple Bypass Burger

 

 

 

Ambulances at the ready for the Quadruple Bypass Burger, from the Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona. Containing 2lbs of beef and an estimated 8,000 calories, it’s not hard to see how the Quadruple Bypass Burger got its name.

 

 

Gelato Brioche Sandwich

 

 

At the Gran Caffé Bar 900 in Alcamo, Sicily you can find sweet rioche buns chock full of super creamy Italian ice cream. Averaging around 600 calories with more than 20g of fat, these sweet treats are a lethal way to end a meal.

That sounds absolutely delightful.

I like this one:

 

Chez Bailo

 

Pop down to Bailo's house in Birmingham and he'll treat you to the delight of beans and cheese encapsulated into a pancake. Delicious and morish, these will knock your socks off with a taste explosion in your mouth, and will only set you back 500 calories and a miniscule 16g of fat.

Love that show.

Just waiting for him to have a coronary on tv.

 

The burritto in Vegas was ridiculous.

 

Just watched one where a "professional" competitive eater ate a 5.5lb Burrito in 3.5 mins. My one big envy is how many small, locally owned establishments there are in the US compared to the UK where your choices are limited to Mcdonalds etc.

 

Britain is just one homogenous entity devoid of character anymore.

You make an interesting point there. I was thinking of setting up some sort of catering business recently and the costs involved seemed so prohibitive that I ended up looking at making lunches from home and delivering them to workplaces. Low overheads you see, before I abandoned the idea as being a high effort to reward ratio.

The thing is, what you say makes me wonder if there are costs in our economy that are relatively lower in the states. Maybe these people can rent a premises without re-mortgaging their house to afford it.

We don't have the same culture of eating out as often in this country, not everyone obviously and it is changing, but I think thats the main difference.

 

This, by the way is after studying building surveying and coming out to find there is practically zero recruitment. I'm going to have to come up with a small business idea to make my own job. I might start a thread asking for advice and ideas at some point.

it is scary that there are so many "crazy eating" places over here.

 

i know of at least 3 in Omaha and we are a fairly small city.

 

my wife and I have made a conscious effort to avoid any of the buffet style places as they offer so much food, and so much variety, that is hard to control your eating. not too long ago, a place in town offered "all you can eat baby back ribs" and the place was packed every night, with queues at peak times. the cost was about $10 and included tons of other choices.

 

a place like Chilis charges $18 for 1 slab of these delicious ribs.

I'm a bit partial to the doner myself. I had no idea it had so much fat, i'd always thought its grilled and the fat runs off. :(

 

 

Next time I've respected my body by pouring loads of beer into it, I'm continuing the night's trend and having a salad.

bit poor f***ing taste that isn't it? do fat b*stards have to sign a waiver before eating it in case they actually do have a coronary?

Sorry - that's b******s - I can't remember the last time I ate in a McDonalds - and I have to get my lunch 'out' somewhere virtually every day of my working life. There's plenty of choice IF you make a conscious efrfort not to eat burgers for every meal.
