Would you like fries with that?
Who thinks up this stuff anyway?
A ball park in Michigan - where else? - has added this 4,800 calorie monster to its menu.
It contains nearly 300 grams of fat, 744 milligrams of cholesterol and more than 10,000 milligrams of sodium. That's more than 4 times the recommended daily allowance of sodium.
Start with an 8-inch sesame seed bun that requires 1 pound of dough and is made specially for the Whitecaps by Nantucket Baking Co. of Grand Rapids.
Spoon on nearly a cup of chili and place five one-third pound hamburger patties on top of that. (Get it, 5/3 pounds of beef for the Fifth Third Burger?)
Add five slices of American cheese and liberal doses of salsa, nacho cheese and Fritos. Top it off with lettuce, tomato and sour cream, and you have a burger that can be sliced with a pizza cutter and feed four people for $20. Jalapenos are optional.
