Culinary Concoctions

Okay, I’ll admit it, I love food.  For those of you who know me, that is not a big surprise.  For those of you who don’t, I enter my basketball-shaped stomach as Exhibit A.  I love to try new and exotic combinations.  It’s one of the things I enjoy most about cruising.  They always offer those dishes you hear about, but hardly ever get the chance to try like Chateaubriand and Baked Alaska. But, over the past couple years some of the finest culinary creations have come from a rather unexpected source… my fantasy football league’s annual draft day smorgasbord.


Eight Pounds of Manliness!

Last year, we took an invention of our friends at Burnt Finger BBQ called the Bacon Explosion and “beefed” it up… as well as chickened it up and porked it up.  The final product was an 8 pound roll of manliness chocked full of bacon, sausage, hamburger, pulled pork, barbecue chicken, jalapenos, cheese, and barbecue sauce that we dubbed the “Carnivorgasm”.  Although it was a little heart attack on a plate, it was one of the most delicious food items I devoured in 2011.


Careful! You’re gonna crack the granite countertop.

Now, we knew from the beginning that there was no topping last year’s masterpiece.  So, what we couldn’t pass in taste, we blew the doors off of in pure gluttony.  It’s the burger for the appetite of a king… and his queen, princes, princesses, knights, his army, and the offensive lines of the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and New York Giants.  It’s the colossal 10 pound cheeseburger!  And it was every bit as good as it looks!

So, what culinary delights have you came up with in the past?  Or what amazing food have you just discovered?  Let us know about your culinary concoctions in the comments below.
