You know that item on the diner menu that you never order because it’s battered, deep-fried and causes chest pains? Well, someone thought it would be a great idea to turn the Monte Cristo into a burger.
The Monte Cristo Burger, brought to us by Umami Burger and Michael Voltaggio, borrows the concept of the deadly ham and cheese sandwich. It’s a beef patty with Gruyere fondue and prosciutto, sandwiched between two vanilla custard-soaked buns that are deep fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
The burger, that’ll surely kill you, will be available at all Umami Burger locations starting January 28. Enjoy at your own risk.
