Bah. :p

Nothing tops THAT category like Taco Bell. :p

LOL!! I normally don't have trouble with either Taco Bell or White Castle, it's usually the type of food I eat that can clean me out, like lettuce. :whistle:

A little thing to know for the greasy carnivores among us - a bowl of oatmeal with breakfast a few mornings of the week.  Oatmeal removes cholesterol from your body.

I drink lots of orange juice and bike ride to and from work every day. :) I make an effort to eat in moderation.

:cool:

Yeah, orange juice is good too.  A bowl of oatmeal, a glass of orange juice, and 1/2 of that yummy sausage bacon egg breakfast sandwich, please!

I have to eat oatmeal.  I hang out at a diner where I can smoke and drink coffee and chat with my friends about local politics and stuff in general.  I can feel my arteries hardening just walking in the door and smelling the grease rolling off the 1/2 century old grill.  My favorite is their "Master Burger" - two super greasy patties with cheese and mayonaise.  My #2 favorite is their fried chicken strips with gravy and a side of french fries.  Last cholesterol test in February showed my cholesterol levels are a-ok!  Okay - I go swimming 2-3 times a week too.

My, but this thread took some interesting turns since my head hit my pillow last night!  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  Anyway, I see my name, so I'll take care of this before I post my review of the sandwich in question.  Well, not my review, my local paper's review.  :hehe:  :hehe:

Nonny, did you say you lived in Japan? If so, then this comment is for Saul, I saw on the News sometime ago where someone had made wasbi ice cream and if wasn't Japan then sorry...but it has been done (I hate it when my memory fails...sorry :( )

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yeah, back in 1975-77, before the wasabi ice cream happened, I'm pretty sure.  I remember hearing about it, don't remember where, but a good guess would be Little Tokyo in LA.  :)

I draw the line at sweets, though, but I'd try almost anything once.   :lol:  In terms of Japanese dessert, I like red bean. Red bean ice cream, red bean shakes, cakes with red bean in them-YUM! :drool:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I love red bean ice cream!  There's a place in Rancho Mirage that serves a red bean, ginger and one other flavor ice cream sundae with caramel sauce, so you'd think I'd go there oftener.  One time a sushi chef overheard me say something about my birthday, and he bowed and presented me with a pair of pink chopsticks.  :happy:

'Enormous' sandwich is big letdown
Richard Guzmán
The Desert Sun
March 31, 2005
The name alone would probably be enough to scare off less-qualified junk -food eaters, not to mention the sausage patty, three strips of bacon, a two-egg omelet and two American cheese slices inside a bun that come with Burger King's newest breakfast creation.

The "Enormous Omelet Sandwich," the fast-food chain's newest weapon against skinniness, debuted Monday to much hoopla from those celebrating the enormity of the "Enormous Omelet Sandwich."

OK, it wasn't exactly front-page material, but many news reports still salivated over the 730 calories and 47 grams of fat - more than the Whopper at 700 calories and 42 grams of fat - in the sandwich.

As the resident connoisseur of cheap eats in the valley, I had to verify just how enormous this meal really is, so I was off for breakfast with the King.

I must admit, I was a bit intimidated by what I read about it.

CNN quoted Penn State professor of nutrition Penny Kris-Etherton as saying, "Americans do not need an Enormous Omelet Sandwich."

"Breakfast Sandwich Horrifies Nutritionists," read a headline on an MSNBC Web site story. "Nutritionists call it a 'heart attack on a bun,' " the story read.

Wow, was I in over my head?

Is this the last the Coachella Valley will ever hear of Richard Guzmán, cut down in the prime of his life?

In the name of journalism, I had to take that risk.

In my overactive imagination, and since the power went out at my house the night before and I had no TV, I imaged a David and Goliath-like battle where I would try to overpower this enormous beast with my appetite. But when I got to the Burger King the next morning and ordered my opponent, I realized it was no contest.

Enormous? Pleeeeeease.

Compared to my expectations, this thing, at $3.09, was tiny, so tiny that I even added some hash browns to my order to make sure I wouldn't be hungry an hour later.

The so-called egg omelet was just thin slices, as was the sausage.

The three strips of bacon were paper-thin and the bun fit comfortably in one hand and in no time was fitting comfortably in my belly.

But this sandwich has figured out how to do something most of us haven't - how to be so thin while containing so many calories.

The only thing that's enormous about it is the hype behind it.
:rolleyes:

There was a time, back in the 1980s, when I actually ate Jack-in-the-Box bacon cheeseburgers two or three times a week!! I swore off the habit and have never gone back to it, and never will. I feel guilty enough occasionally eating a California Cobb Salad with chicken from McDonald's -- that's the *only* thing of freakin' McD's I'll ever eat. (And since I can get, and make, better salads, I really don't know why I do theirs at all...)

I eat oatmeal (with fruit and cinnamon) almost every morning, and drink orange juice. Mmmmm. ;)

For the grease connoisseurs, here in Texas we have what is called an old-fashioned grease burger - thick greasy hamburger patty (or 2), with cheese and  mayonnaise, and the bun has been lightly toasted on a greasy griddle for added flavor, so even the bun is greasy.  Personally, it's not one of my favorites, but I've known a few people who say they gotta have one occasionally to get their grease quota.  Old fashioned grease burgers seem to be more commonly made at little independently owned burger stands, rather than the big franchises.

^ Ha ... I see you are familiar with the famous Pitt Grill's "Master Burger"!  Had to go get my fill of second-hand grease earlier tonight.  I opted for the chicken wrap and face-to-face conversation with my cronies.  All three did me good.

Well, just so you can all stop wondering I actually had one of these the other day.

It was certainly big, and yes it was filling.  However it was also pretty bland.  Tasteless, even.

Definitely not recommended, even to those who might otherwise consider fast food to be one of the main food groups.

Next time I'm in the mood for some "food porn" for breakfast I'll hit IHOP or Denny's.
