Xtreme Eating 2016

You’ve seen plenty of restaurants that offer a “dare you to eat it” entree that appeals to total gastronomes, or more likely, journalists and bloggers who are willing to give free advertising to something outrageous. In addition to extreme meals that you can get for free if you finish all of it, there are more and more extreme meal combos that appear to give you a lot of bang for your buck. They might intrigue your palate, but your eyes may be bigger than your stomach, not to mention your metabolism.  

“Think you can handle this Whole Hog Burger?” asks the menu at Uno Pizzeria & Grill (129 locations). “OVER A POUND OF MEAT. Hamburger, sausage, bacon, prosciutto and pepperoni. PLUS–Four types of cheese, garlic mayo & pickles. With fries & onion rings. Extra napkins free!”

Extra calories, too! Enough to hit 2,850—more than a 24- hour supply. And don’t forget the three days’ worth of sat fat (62 grams), six-day stockpile of sodium (9,790 mg), and white-flour bun! You might as well eat four McDonald’s Quarter Pounders with Cheese and two medium fries doused with 18 packets of salt.

That’s just one of eight extreme meals you can pig out on. The Center for Science in the Public Interest compiled a list of menu offerings from restaurants that tip the scales in volume, calories, salt, or just plain overindulgence.  -via Metafilter

I miss the Chicago Uno's spaghetti and MEATBALL. Yes, one meatball about the size of a softball. Don't think it is on their menu these days.

A pound of red meat? Layers of crunchy vegetables? Trade the fried starches for broccoli but make up the calories with beer and you have what I call "Thursday Night".
