CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Mega MonsterBurger
Thick & Thin
Hey, Hardee's -- you're not exactly making it easy for us. It's one thing to
whip up a guilt-free version of your basic burger, but that MASSIVE towering
Monster Thickburger of yours is a different story. With TWO beefy burger
patties, THREE layers of cheese, a DOUBLE order of crispy bacon, and a
creamy slathering of mayo, that colossal caloriefest wasn't exactly a snap to
swap. But, no food challenge is too large for HG (in fact, the harder they are,
the MORE we love 'em!), and we managed to pull this one off with some
staggeringly awesome stats. Our Mega MonsterBurger has more than THIRTY
times LESS fat and just a fraction of the calories of that crazy Thickburger.
Ours also has 6 times as much fiber and a whopping 46 grams of protein!
Yeah, we're good.
1 Wonder Light Hamburger Bun
2 Boca Meatless Burgers, Original
2 slices Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon 2 slices fat-free American cheese;
each cut into 3 strips
1 tbsp. fat-free mayo
If desired, toast bun and set aside. In a pan sprayed with nonstick spray,
cook bacon to desired crispiness over medium heat, flipping occasionally.
Prepare burger patties according to package directions (either in a pan with
nonstick spray, or in the microwave). While still hot, top each patty with 2
strips of the cheese. Break bacon slices in half. Criss-cross 2 bacon halves
over the bun bottom, and top with the remaining 2 strips of cheese. Stack
both cheese-topped burger patties on top, and then criss-cross the other two
bacon halves over that. Lastly, smear the mayo on the inside of the top of
the bun, and finish off your sandwich with it. Enjoy!

Hardee's Monster Thickburger
Hardee's prides itself on the Thickburger line, and we get it. Ginormous
burgers with cheese and other fatty items are appealing (we know this). But
serving up a sandwich that has more than 1,400 calories and over a hundred
grams of fat is truly frightening. And as if these horrifying stats weren't awful
enough, consider the fact that hardly anyone visits a fast-food joint and
orders ONLY a burger. By the time you tack the sides on to your Hardee's
meal, it'll likely exceed the calories needed for an entire day (and will
probably contain enough fat grams for a very long weekend!). So the next
time you wanna kick a killer burger craving to the curb without swallowing a
gazillion unnecessary calories, get busy in the kitchen and assemble HG's
Mega MonsterBurger. And let Hardee's Monster Thickburger terrorize
