Behold, the Green Bay Packers’ 3.5-pound ‘Big Game Burger’ (photo)


Just in time for the Green Bay Packers’ showdown with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL Divisional Round at Lambeau Field this weekend, Delaware North, the food service provider for the revered stadium, has unveiled a gargantuan burger that should serve the Cheeseheads well, filling up their bellies as they brave the chilly temperatures on Sunday afternoon.

Behold, the “Big Game Burger.”

Sweet sassy molassey. That’s a pound-and-a-half of meat right there, folks, and a three-and-a-half-pound feast of egregious gluttony.

In a nod to the deer hunting tradition of the great State of Wisconsin, the burger patty not only features 1/2 pound of ground certified angus beef, not to mention a mouth-watering 1/2 pound of bacon goodness, a 1/2 pound of ground venison has been mixed into the 24-ounce testament to meaty majesty.

The toppings slathered between a “Big Mother” pretzel bun are as follows, via CBS Sports: “Crispy fried onions, jalapeño smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato (6 slices!), pickles, secret sauce and a heaping helping of housemade jalapeño cheese (jalapeños, multiple cheddars and BBQ sauce).”

Well, at least there’s some lettuce and tomato slices in there. It’s kinda like a real meaty, real cheesy, really fattening salad … in a way. And all for the reasonable stadium price of $20.

Rolaids, it is assumed, are extra.

Throw in a “Horse Collar,” another gastronomic gutbomb offering from Lambeau’s concessions that features a grilled 22-inch kielbasa topped with fried sauerkraut and smothered in beer cheese (that unfortunately kinda looks like a toilet seat), and well, bon appétit!
