Ballpark Burger Adds Krispy Kremes to the Mix


An All-Beef Patty With Cheese, Bacon on Krispy Kreme Donut Buns


By JESSICA GOLDEN and LYNDA FIGUEREDO
June 23, 2006




It may be a cardiologist's worst nightmare -- a Black Angus all-beef patty covered in melted cheese, two strips of savory bacon all between a sugary, deep-fried Krispy Kreme donut.



This mouthwatering burger is getting some major league buzz ever since Illinois' Frontier League baseball team, the Gateway Grizzlies, began serving the 1,000-calorie treat at their concession stands.


Dubbed the "Luther Burger," its Atlanta creators Chandler Goff and Jeff Girard, owners of Mulligan's Bar and Grill, fine-tuned a recipe they found in a magazine and created the artery-clogging cheeseburger.
The general manager of the Gateway Grizzlies, Tony Funterburg, saw more than just a burger -- he saw earning potential and a way to bring more people to games.


Funterberg says the results are incredible, attendance has grown and it's just about the most popular thing in the ballpark.


Cory McDaniel liked the Luther Burger so much he had three in one sitting. "It really is the best burger you've ever had," he said.


"I know it sounds weird but it's sweet, mouth-watering and makes me hungry just talking about it," said Keith Chapman, another Grizzlies fan and owner of an Illinois car dealership.


Others are repulsed by the idea of a cheeseburger squished between a Krispy Krème glazed donut. "Ew, that is way too many carbs and cal's...a heart attack waiting to happen," said student Michelle Laurcanne.
"Are you trying to make me gag?" said another woman.


Some burger purists are also repelled by the Luther.


"Changing the classic cheeseburger is just plain wrong, it's a conflict of cultures," New York high schooler Meredith Dean said.


That's not stopping people from tinkering with the classic burger.


From cheeseburger salad to cheeseburger soups, menus all over the country are reinventing the once-classic burger.


"I've had a burger with bologna cheese and bacon and I love it!" said banking executive Michael Szwejbka.


How about cheeseburger sushi? "Cheeseburger tacos sound good and so does cheeseburger salad but definitely not on top of sushi," said Fmu Tarmin, manager of a New York sushi restaurant.

Whatever cheeseburger combination you're having though, there's no question the Luther Burger is definitely a guilty pleasure -- and one to be enjoyed infrequently.
"We don't recommend that you make a habit of eating this, but I don't think once a month will kill you," said its inventor Jeff Girard.

HORRIBLE IDEA! Krispie Kremes are bad enough doughnuts by themselves.



Dunkin is MUCH better, but still wouldn't work with meat in them. Try this with sesame seed bagels and you may have a winner.

Yes, I realize it's 2 years old but this is news to me.

A burger on a donut? Gross.

Give me a few drinks and I'd probably try a bite though

I'm sure someone out there has already done that.

I was watching a show last night and they had deep fried pickles. They actually sounded pretty good.

Re: Ballpark Burger Adds Krispy Kremes to the Mix

We had a deep frier at our tailgate for the game against the cowboys last year, and after we were done making hot wings we started tossing in whatever we could find. Even without the batter, a deep fried Milano cookie and a cupcake are still pretty damn good.

From the guys who brought you the Krispy Kreme Burger:
iron stef: can the krispy kreme burger be topped?

Quote:
Twinkie Dog: A deep fried Twinkie is cut open and a Farmland 8:1 hot dog is deep fried then placed in the middle. It is available from July 11th to July 13th.

It should come with an instruction manual, and a complimentary heart ventricle.

Re: Ballpark Burger Adds Krispy Kremes to the Mix

Like Buster, I am dunkin donuts kind of guy, but that being said, I'd certainly try it. It may be gross, but you never know until you try.

About the hamdog, that picture looks gross. Having an egg on a burger is VERY good if any of you haven't tried it fyi. The best burger I have had was at red robin with an egg on it.

That deep fried twinkie hotdog might be gross, but that sounds rather mouthwatering. I would certainly give a few bucks to try that.

Re: Ballpark Burger Adds Krispy Kremes to the Mix

I don't like McDonald's McGriddles, the sweet syrup and the egg/meat combo just doesn't jive for me. So I doubt I'd like that donut burger.

But it's a cool idea. Tinkering with food like that, especially at a ballpark, is smart because people will be like yo did you try that donut burger yet? And then people buy tickets to your game AND try your burger.

We should make a Warpath Burger and sell it at tailgates: 1/4 pound beef, 1/4 pound pork roll, 4 strips bacon with onion rings, smoked cheddar, and BBQ sauce.

You gotta have Hog on your burger!
