Schwarzenegger Steak Sandwich

Have you ever seen such a monstrosity?

This steak sandwich has 80,583 calories and contains cheese, steak, bacon and ostrich eggs!

Now WHO would attempt to eat a sandwich like this?

None other than Arnold Schwarzenegger – THE TERMINATOR.

“This sandwich will be so meaty,” Arnie says, “it will make a weak man cry.”

I’m crying already and I haven’t even attempted it.

Not that I will.

I LOVE beef but this amount is too powerful for me.

Baseball’s Craziest Hot Dogs

Not only is it basketball time, it’s BASEBALL time, too! I love this time of year!

Part of the experience of going to the ballpark to watch some baseball is the food, right?

Ya gotta get into the spirit of America’s pastime by eating a good ‘ol American hot dog.

BUT, some major league ballparks are taking their dogs, well, to the extreme.

Take Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers. They’ve got The Beast (see above), a grilled bratwurst cut in half and stuffed with a HOT DOG, then wrapped in bacon and topped off with sauerkraut and grilled onions on a pretzel roll.

WOW. That took some real thought — and calories.

Click here to see more crazy hot dog concoctions. Would you eat all of these? Not in one sitting, of course.

Why Bacon is Called Bacon

Bacon. It’s delicious. It’s flavorful. It’s what obsessions are made of.

But have you ever stopped to think why we call bacon BACON?

These are the things that keep me up late at night. But, luckily, this particular mystery has been solved.

The word “bacon” has Old French origins and means “back.” Back bacon is common in England and is made up of the loin and some belly.
