Double Down = Triple Bypass

So the geniuses that brought you the Famous Bowl (mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets, corn, cheese, and gravy) and Kentucky Grilled Chicken (KGC?) have created a new bun-less chicken sandwich.  For $4.99 you get two pieces of cheese and two strips of bacon covered in spicy pepper sauce, then they cram that between two pieces of fried chicken.  But it's white-meat chicken, so you know it's good for you.  Since I'm such a proponent of healthy eating, I stopped by my local KFC on Saturday to try their new offering.  For presentation, I give it a 1.

For tastiness, I give it an 8.

Wow, the deep-fried goodness really goes straight to your pores.  I start to sweat halfway through eating it.

Tina gives it a whirl as well.

Overall, I'd have to say it was better than I expected, but I started thinking "Ya know, there's got to be a way to make this cheesy, bacony, fried chickeny sammich even more unhealthy and tastier."
So after a quick trip to my local grocery store, it was game on.
I started with a flour tortilla, because everything, EVERYTHING, tastes better when made into a burrito.

Now we add some diced KFC Double Down...

...a slice of ham...

...some philly cheesesteak...

...gotta add a handful of tater tots in there...

...everyone loves macaroni and cheese...

...definitely need to throw some chili in there.  Chili rules...

...can't have chili without Fritos...

...and after much struggle, I'm finally able to roll it up, wrap it in foil, and put it in the toaster oven.  One for me, one for T.

After about 10 minutes, it's dinnertime!   My buddy tweeted this:

  1. Usc_normalApathyXnext I just wrote down the number for the Orlando Emergency Line in preparation for @tinaannb and   @floridachad's dinner. #EnjoySweatingGrease

Just look at how excited I am.


Feast your eyes on this delicious blend of ingredients.  Emeril Lagasse can kiss my ass.  BAM!

Tina pairs hers with a pinot noir, because she has an appreciation for fine dining.

Who likes heart palpitations?

Though later, she did tweet this:  

tinaannb @ApathyXnext My tummy hurts & my heart aches! I think@Floridachad is trying to kill me. Death by heart disease. Plz send ambulance & Pepto

About an hour later I really started to feel it.

Yep, this is what America is all about - overindulgence and oneupmanship.  
Now if you'll excuse me, I've suddenly grown very tired and am going to bed at 10pm...on a Saturday.  But I'll be seeing you in the morning...

Your move, Colonel Sanders.


  1. Why do my farts smell sweet & sour today? Weird.

  2. I feel ashamed...and kinda disgusted.
