I like meat so much I don't even need bread, just fry the meat and I'll use it for bread to make a friggin' bacon & cheese sandwich.

America is so awesome it hurts sometimes (my heart, that is).

Side note: I actually took a 4 mile run this morning for just looking at a picture of the Double Down.

fried chicken, cheese, and bacon. Who needs bread.
What's the most concise and accurate term for this beast? Is it a bacon & cheese, fried chicken sandwich? I suppose this is on par with one of the other more ridiculous American menu items that is often taken for granted: the ice cream sandwich. I mean really, you take two cookies and jam icecream in between. The desert version of the double down!

That looks fantastic. I love bacon, chicken and cheese but never thought of combining them before! Might make one later.

Actually, strangely enough, there are tons of fast food items way worse for you than the Double Down, especially if you get it grilled.

Grilled Double Down - 460Cal 23G Fat
Double Down 540Cal 32G Fat

McDonalds Quaterpounder - 535 Cal & 29 G Fat
Taco Bell Volcano Nachos 1000 Cal & 60 G Fat
Subway 6" Tuna Salad Sub 530 Cal & 30 G Fat
--------6" Spicy Italian 520 Cal & 28 G Fat
Wendy's Fish Sandwich 500 Cal & 24 G Fat
Burger King Whopper w/ Cheese 770 Cal & 48 G Fat

So, really in the grand scheme of things it's no worse for you than any other normal fast food menu item. Whodathunkit?

Maybe not, but there's nothing better on a plate than a ribeye/strip steak/porterhouse/sirloin/filet from a grass-fed, pasture-raised cow straight off the grill...mmmmm
