Crazy County Fair Food: "The Vandross" Donut Bacon Cheeseburger

Alright, so earlier this week we showed you the Pork Parfait, but that's really just meat and potatoes in a cup. When it comes to culinary advancement in the genre of "fair food" the over the top double Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburger is a great innovation.

You can find the donut burger at the Carousel Foods booth at the Dade County Fair. Look for the Burger Beast Approved sticker on the cart and you'll know you're at the right place.

If you're wondering, the donut burger has an estimated 800 calories, whereas the giant turkey leg carries 1,200. That's acording to Carousel Foods management, who say the giant turkey leg is by far their best selling item.

In any case, the donut burger is delicious. Some people call it "The Vandross" because as legend has it Luther Vandross invented it after running out of bread. Here are some more pictures of it being made.
