1:12 Donut Bacon Cheeseburger by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Donut Bacon Cheeseburger by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Donut bacon cheeseburgers. With a healthy side of chili fries. Made from polymer clay.

So, I have to ask...would you try it? Have you tried it? I'd have to say no to both. Even looking up reference pictures made my stomach feel uneasy. :P

Week 1 of my carnival food series. I have a blog post on this one up: bon-appeteats.blogspot.com/

The burgers and chili fries are also finally available in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/listing/161537248…

I would try it, if I was bribed with like $5 for every bite I took as long as I was allowed to barf it all up later.

Your food looks so yummy. It's hard to imagine this being clay! I recently tried one of these as part of a special offer and actually it was really delicious! Can't say that I'd eat it more than three times in a lifetime, though.

I've heard of something like this...the donut makes it sweet while the meat makes it juicy and savory. I miiiiight try it, but I'm super picky about my food. Burgers already contribute to heart attacks, why add in diabetes to the mix? :)

I could never try this, it makes me feel queasy :XD: did you know that there is such thing as fried butter on a stick? people apparently eat that...and they enjoy it too!! i can't even... :faint:
beautiful work as always! I love the coloring!

Oh yes, I've heard of the fried butter. Apparently it tastes like the center part of a cinnamon roll (which, honestly, does sound really good lol). I'd try that over this though. :P

I've never tried one, but I probably would if given the chance. My sister has had one and said it's really good, but I dunno. I'm not a huge fan of doughnuts to begin with, so I don't think I'd enjoy it very much XD Seems like it wouldn't be worth all the extra calories and cholesterol and whatnot, but then there are people who love them, so who knows.

Anyway, you always have the most amazing and realistic-looking model foods! *__* I love the chili fries in the background as well!

No, and no.  I like my cheeseburgers on regular buns they way they are supposed to be, and my donuts (when I can have them, which is rare) to be pristine from all savory things and preferably covered in chocolate or maple frosting, ready for dunking in my hot chocolate.  Putting burger makings on a sweet, yummy donut is just....wrong.  >_<;

The thing that gets me is just how much grease would be in this thing. :P Burgers on their own are bad enough. And it's carnival food, so you know it's going to be extra greasy with a side of grease. No thanks!

The one "fad" new carnival food I ever really liked, outside of the usual traditions like corn dogs, cotton candy (there's a challenge in mini, love to see that), hamburgers, funnel cakes, Indian tacos, and the like, was a deep-fried 3 Musketeers bar.  Oh, lordee, talk about heaven!  But also needing to be split between two people, because eating a whole one by yourself is just way too much...

The only thing I've ever had at a carnival were chili cheese fries and funnel cake, both of which I instantly regretted having. While fried chocolate bars do sound somewhat appealing, I know I could never realistically eat one, even if I split it with other people.

I figured I had to try the danged thing at least once, so my mom and I split one...but it's not something I would buy with any regularity, and the next fair, they were gone, so it was a once-off deal anyways.  Good thing, really.   Actually, when I go to the county fair, I prefer to buy my food from the booths operated by local groups instead of those carney food booths that travel from fair to fair because they are usually better tasting, better for you, and don't upset the stomach (unless you foolishly go on a whippy/shaky/bouncy ride too soon after eating ;) )

Booths like the high school cheerleaders, the 4-H'ers, or the local Cattlewomen's club.  Around here, the first makes wonderful individual strawberry shortcakes; the second funnel cakes that are light and hardly greasy (they form them as usual in the fryer, then once the outside is done and they'll hold shape, they whip'em out and finish'em by baking'em on a flat tray in one of several hot barbecues, if you can believe that); and the last burgers that would put even Carl's Jr so-called six-buck-burgers to shame for only $4.50!

I'm jealous! We don't have much of that around here. Last time I even saw a fair with actual food booths was about 4 hours north of where I am in the middle of nowhere. It was a strawberry festival, and it was delicious. They had the usual rides, but also some livestock and food judging which I'd never seen outside of movies. It was a real treat and I wish I could go back.

We have a county fair every year up here, we're pretty rural but not out in nowhere.  Just one of the smallest populated counties in my state.  Some years are better and some worse.  But many of the county businesses have booths in the commercial building (including a candy store...old fashioned goodies similar to what you make in mini.  Have you ever thought of a rainbow "unicorn horn" lolly?  That's one of the things this place sells!), while the local clubs and groups use it as a major fund-raiser.

As a result, the food is always good, thanks to all the grandmas and country cooks that have supplied the recipes!  It's fun to go...competition in artwork, foods, textiles, clothes, table settings, veggies and flowers, and livestock from pigs and goats to horses in dressage, carriage, jumping, draft horse (or mule) hauling...and of course a carnival and a petting farm for kids.

Oooh, okay, I know what those look like. I may include them in my next project - thank you for mentioning them!

That sounds like a ton of fun. I'd end up buying way too much stuff though. XD I'll have to see if they have that strawberry festival still; all your descriptions are making me really want to go back.

I know a place in LA that has this on the menu, and it's the biggest seller. They get their donuts from Randy's donuts on Manchester just off the N. bound 405. Randy's is not as airy as some other's in the area.

Sweet and savory...if offered to me (for free of course) I would try it. I like my burgers plain so it would be ketchup, onions, cheese, bacon and burger on it. I might skip the ketchup and cheese to make it more...appatizing to myself lol

Ah yes, free does change things up a bit. XD Learned in college to never pass up free food. lol I prefer mine with grilled onions and good blue cheese, though there is a place near by that loads theirs up with crunched up potato chips, mozzarella cheese, and pineapple sauce. Stupidly addictive.

But when you do really think about it (eating pretty much moldy cheese), it loses some of it's appeal. :P

Exactly...lol

Like I love me some hard cheeses....chedder, parmigiano (the real stuff from Italy) and so on. I grew up on cheese actually lol...my grandparents were Greek and they had the good stuff.

Of course now I find out I have a bit of lactose intolerance. Which really sucks when one of your fav foods is just cheese.
