By now, any of our regular readers has figured out that I have a soft spot for fast food breakfast. But even I have my limits.
Hardee’s has just rolled back out one of their “limited time only” menu items, the Fried Bologna Biscuit. How very McRib of them.
I know that this has been rolled out in the Southeast once before, back in 2009, but it must have completely missed my radar, because this is the first time that I’ve come across this beast: A fried egg omelette, a slice of cheese, and a slice of fried Oscar Mayer bologna, all on a buttered biscuit.
In case you were wondering just how much damage this will do to you, here are some of the stats: 610 calories (390 from fat), 43g of fat, 230 mg of cholesterol, and 1620mg of sodium.
Now, don’t get me wrong…I know, firsthand, that few things are as deliciously trashy as a slice of fried bologna. In fact, just last week I enjoyed the Billy Bob’s fried bologna sandwich at The Family Dog (though I’d knocked back a few Spiked Shandy’s beforehand).
Has anyone out there tried this before? Do you plan to? Does this make you sad and disgusted with the state of America, or is this the best thing since KFC’s Double Down?
