Concession Food Item of the Week: The Brunch Burger
At Extra Mustard, we don’t like to accept what’s conventional. We like to explore unique flavors and interesting combinations of fine cuisine. That means that a normal burger is bland in our eyes (and mouths). A simple fried egg? Boring. Even plain ol’ bacon or a glazed doughnut just doesn’t cut it for us. But what if we put them together?
WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT?: The Brunch Burger
WHO HATH WROUGHT THIS MONSTROSITY?: PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pa.
WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: The Brunch Burger is made of a burger patty (60% beef, 40% bacon), sharp cheddar cheese, a fried egg, and it is all held together by a nicely toasted glazed doughnut topped with black, white and yellow sprinkles (in honor of the host team, the Pittsburgh Pirates).
HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN’?: 902, without chips or a drink.
ISN'T 902 CALORIES KIND OF A LOT?: How American are you? Real Americans don’t ask those kinds of questions.
HOW MUCH THINNER WILL MY WALLET GET WHEN I BUY THIS?: Relax. It only costs $7.50.
REALLY? ONLY $7.50?: Yep. Well, that’s not including the hospital bills you’ll probably have to pay to resuscitate you after passing out from the sugar-beef-bacon fat combination.
By the way, even though baseball season is nearing its end, PNC Park will probably roll out this beautiful creation once again because of how popular it was. To be exact, The Brunch Burger inspired 3.5 million tweets on its debut.
