A Damfino?

The closest thing to a Damfino I could find.

When Bob Crampton sent me his email describing this concoction, I knew it would only be a matter of time before I tried it. It would have been minutes later, but having no hot dogs in the house, I was delayed. I then kept forgetting to put them on my grocery list, so it took a few weeks before I was looking for the cardiologist approved bacon (oddly, there was none), when my eyes were drawn to the hot dogs and I remembered the email.

A package was purchased.

And the culinary experience invented forty years ago in San Diego was recreated in my house, with a lifter in one hand and the phone in the other with 9-1-1 already punched in, just in case I had a sudden heart attack from the grease and sodium.

I survived.

And have since made it three times. You have to pace yourself with these things. They’re crazy. Basically it’s a grilled cheese sandwich with a fried hot dog, sliced in half, stuck in between the layers of cheese. Essentially you’ve taken something already bad for you, and made it even worse. Like Wendy’s Baconator. I can picture their corporate headquarters when they came up with this:

“Bacon-cheeseburger sales are down. What can we do about it?”
“Well, sir, we need to make them more appealing to the health conscious consumer.”
“How do we do that?”
“Umm, add more bacon and cheese?”
“Do it!”
“I was joking.”
“I wasn’t!”

So I’m going to assume Bob was young when he invented this thing, America had no clue about heart disease, cholesterol or high blood pressure, and when you’re young, who gives a s**t about that stuff anyway? But his invention has now been immortalized in print and eInk, and now perhaps enjoyed in new households around the world.

But when your paramedic asks what you were thinking, don’t blame me.

Blame Bob!

And for those of you who haven’t read the new book yet, and still are wondering what a Damfino is?

It’s D-A-M-F-I-N-O, as in, “Damned-If-I-Know”.

Read the book for the full explanation of how this name came about.

And how many calories are in this concoction?

Damned if I know.

If you’re hungry, make yourself a sandwich, download the new book, and enjoy them both.

And if you’ve got any crazy culinary creations, send them to me. It might just make it into the next book!

Now I’m off to Wendy’s to get a Baconator sandwich.
