That Double Bypass Burger sounds awesome (minus the egg). I'm gonna have to try the grilled cheese "bun" thing out sometime....

It was pretty incredible. I remember everyone in our area turned to watch me when the waitress brought the burge, which was a little embarrassing. It was surprisingly easy to finish and very, very good. Fried eggs on burgers are better than you think. For Christmas, Leigh Anne got me some Baconnaise, bacon-flavored mayo. I have now tried it on fried bologna, salmon, turkey, salami, ham, and hamburgers. I'm going to make s'mores and then dip them into the baconnaise, and I'm pretty sure it'll be good.
