I wish that I could say that I conquered this beast but I truly don’t think I’m ready for something of this magnitude. My pals Jordie and Jason were brave enough to take down this sandwich, a Double Down in between a McDonalds Big Mac. Weighing in at 1080 calories the Swag Sandwich, as it’s been named, is not to be fucked with. It’s a collision of beef, chicken, cheddar, Monterey Jack, Mac sauce, Colonel’s sauce, bacon, and veggies equivalent to a barnyard explosion in your mouth. Who knows if I’ll ever have the gut to try it but here’s what Jordie aka the “test subject” had to say about it:
“The Double Down alone is like fastfood magic but we wanted to take it to the next level. I would say the experiment was a success; the Mac sauce really kicks it up a notch. But beware this sandwich is not for the faint of heart, as I type this I’m sitting on the toilet and I can tell you it’s a bad scene.”
The fast food chain In-N-Out Burger is widely considered to be one of the best burger joints in the world. My last trip to LA involved an adventure to hamburger heaven and I knew right away that I’d want to go back. Unfortunately I live 4,063 km away from the joint I last visited. Luckily, today I was shown a way to recreate such hot deliciousness. Kenji over at Serious Eats Burger Lab deciphered the ultra secret burger formula and came up with a recipe that produces an almost perfect copy of the original. I knew I had to try it myself.
