Over the past few months, we've shown you how to create your own 'Big Mac Angus' (Big Mac with two Angus beef patties) and the 'Noah's Ark' (battered chicken, a beef patty and bacon). Now, a reader has written in with his own bespoke burger: behold the the Colonel's McWhopper in all its glory...
When we ran our DIY burger posts, we promised our readers that we'd publish photos of their own creations. Benjamin Long in Victoria has accepted the challenge.
"As a follow up to your Noah's Arc burger, why don't you try the Colonels McWhopper? You need a Whopper from Hungry Jack's, a McDonald's Big Mac, and three crispy strips from KFC," explains Benjamin on his creation.
"Open up the whopper and put the Big Mac inside, minus the top and bottom portions of the bun. Then layer the crispy strips from KFC on top of the big mac. Close the whopper bun and enjoy."
Benjamin concocted his artery-clogging feast half a decade ago but took a photo with his "old Nokia dumb phone" to mark the occasion.
"Me and my mate Jay constructed one each, at a spot in Geelong where all three fast food outlets were in walking distance. It was about five years ago and I remember being full and like my heart was going to stop. I’m a pretty fit guy and I like to eat healthy so I was a struggle for me. But all that being said it tasted great! I won’t ever do it again through."
