Lots of these have more calories than I'm currently eating in a day. Yikes!

I remember having breakfast at IHOP or Denny's or something a few years ago. (In my defense, I was in Las Vegas, I was in a hurry, and it was the most convenient place between my origin and my destination.) I wound up ordering one of the big pile o'food breakfast offerings, and eating about half of it. At some point during the meal I pointed at it and commented to my companion, "You know what's horrifying? There are lots of people in America who think this is a normal breakfast."

Yikes! One breakfast with all the calories I eat in one day now. No wonder we're probably the fattest, sickest people on the planet. Just over a year ago I was eating like that dude from Man Vs Food. Well, almost that bad. I still have issues with cleaning my plate when I shouldn't. I have to stay away from places that serve blintzes now... my breakfast poison of choice before my new WOE.

1. IHOP: Big Country Breakfast with Chicken Fried Steak and Sausage Gravy
2490 calories, 149g fat

Ya know...you can get a lengthy jail term in this country for selling things a lot less dangerous than that.

Yikes! This has convinced me that hollandaise sauce is never OK to eat while on my diet.

squery, like everything else it's about moderation. If you have hollandaise every now and then in reasonable quantities, it's not going to hurt you. It's a treat, not a staple.

Whoah! We don't have any of those breakfasts here, but I often go to cafes for breakfast and now I am wondering how much fat actually gets snuck in to my food... ?!

There goes my appetite. Am I the only one that doesn't find any of this appealing at all...? What the heck is "chicken fried steak" and "cream gravy" ??

not gonna lie, the Caramel Pecanbon looks amaaaaazing! but as far as the other items - gross! The grossest to me would have to go to the Country Sausage Biscuit Platter.

Tubbs:
"Chicken fried steak" = inferior quality beef mechanically tenderized (like beating the living daylight out of it), battered/breaded and deep fried.

"Cream gravy" = grease/pan dripping, etc. with flour and milk, usually flavored with MSG.

Thanks for the nightmares, Mdep! Razz
