"Hamburger America is a tour through America highlighting some of the author's favorite burgers and burger joints. But more than that, through the interviews with the myriad shop owners and burger slingers I sense the joy that comes from being a business owner in America. The freedom to choose a menu, the freedom to assemble ingredients, the freedom to set prices and hours. And because these Americans are free to pursue their dreams they prosper while providing a great product that makes many people very happy." ~~ Donald Willaims

"Hats off to the evil genius that came up with this preposterously nauseating concoction. It is truly, breathtakingly repellent. I have one question though; why not go for broke and also deep fry the whole hideous mass. Just a thought."~~ Anonymous

“A half-pound burger, a fried egg, two strips of bacon, all sandwiched between two glazed doughnuts? Why not go all out and add a slice or two of cheese and use chocolate covered doughnuts?”

      Definitely intriging. I'm not sure I'd make or buy one, but maybe just a taste. . I do love salty and sweet, but I'm thing of chocolate covered pretzels when I say that. :D 5 stars for starting up the controversy, and with such an unusual recipe. Lensrolled to Cheeseburger Swiss vs American. Thanks so much.

      It's definitely up there in one of the worlds most unhealthiest snacks. There's a ballpark near us that sells this. I haven't tried it, but my sister did and she really like it. Maybe one day I'll get brave enough to try one.

      So have you "met" someone who has eaten it yet? I wish I worked at Google. They had the burgers in the cafeteria because one of their big head honchos was leaving the company. I guess he requested them?

      I have to say the Google cafeteria pic is one of the scariest I've ever seen! lol I saw Paula Dean talking about this not that long ago and my heart almost stopped. Plus I'm not a fan of mixing dessert and meat on my plate so...ewwww... Great lens. 5*

      Thanks for dropping by my blog. This lens is great! I love the Paula Dean video. She is such a crack up! I think if I ever get a chance to taste a krispy kreme burger, I would, but I have a feeling I'd only be able to handle a bite. That is just too scary! :)

      That looks and sounds yummy! Never heard of using a donut as a hamburger bun. I wish I knew how to cook. Otherwise I would experiment and make my own.

      It just does not sound that tasty to me but I am open for new things, so of course I would try it. Not grasshoppers though.. nope, not even between a Krispy Kreme Bun.

      W-H-A-T??? A Krispy Kreme Burger? My dear, I've never heard of such a thing but it sounds absolutely yummlicious -- might be hard on my high cholesterol. I'm not a vegetarian so I CAN try this, but if I do, hubby must have the other half. ;)

      Revolting isn't even a strong enough sentiment for this. Gee...does anyone wonder why our country has such huge problems with obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Krispy Kreme should be ashamed of themselves. God Bless America, anything for a profit.

      I'm not a donut fan, either, and even the thought of that burger makes my tummy hurt! I bet my boyfriend would love it, though. Great lens! :D

      Well that ranks right up there with deep fried Twinkies. LOL I personally would not eat one, but I wouldn't tell anyone not to if they wanted too. We don't have Krispy Kreme in Arizona anymore. The company closed all the stores here.
