Heart Attack Lasagna 2.0: Now 'Only' 11K Calories! (VIDEO)


lasagnaFriends, a disturbing food trend is emerging in our culinary landscape: Gargantuan, heart attack-inducing lasagnas made with the most unhealthy ingredients imaginable. The inherent irony in this new trend? The fact that it makes us both gag and salivate all at the same time.

Earlier this week we introduced you to the Fast Food Lasagna, which weighed in at 5,463 grams of fat and 71,488 calories. Today we're shining the light on the Mac 'n' Cheese Meat Lasagna. True, this one disappoints at "only" 11K calories, but never fear: The list of ingredients is no less nauseating/appealing ...

Essentially, the Mac 'n' Cheese Meat Lasagna, as the video so artfully demonstrates, is likely what would happen if the kids were let loose in the kitchen and had unrestricted access to all their favorite foods.

  • Chicken nuggets (68 g fat, 1,104 calories)
  • Sausage (176 g fat, 1,980 calories)
  • Bacon (96 g fat, 1,104 calories)
  • Hot dogs (150 g fat, 1,800 calories)
  • Cheese sauce made from: Velveeta (120 g fat, 1,600 calories); Cheese Whiz (91 g fat, 1,170 calories); Kraft Mac 'n' Cheese packets (24 g fat, 1,560 calories); shredded cheddar cheese (72 g fat, 880 calories)

The whole monstrosity clocks in at 797 grams of fat and 11,198 calories. Not quite 71K. But keep in mind that the Fast Food Lasagna requires more than a few trips to the drive-thru, while the Mac version can be made using ingredients you likely already have in your freezer/refrigerator/pantry. (That's either a refreshing or frightening thought.)

Here's a scary thought: How will the next batch of lasagna-makers raise the stakes even higher? Do we have a lasagna layered with donuts, fast food apple pies, and frosting? Or how about one with French Fries, potato chips, and mayo? I shudder to think as my stomach rumbles ...

Well, the fat and calorie level doesn't matter to me, but the thought of it is still nasty!! I'm not much for fast food, but it's not because of the nutritional non-value - it's because it tastes like crap! At least from the major fast food chains. If it's a 'real' handmade burger from a small burger joint, then I'll go for that, just don't like the pre-processed McDonald's type crap meat.

My homemade lasagna is a heart attack waiting to happen in itself - just not as muc so as what this kid made!

Maybe I'm losing my sense of humour in my "old" age (26), but this just makes me really sad for that kids future and the future of  the human race in general. What is wrong with this kids parents?!

"Next time, we eat my sister!" XD Sorry, that part made me laugh.

Okay, I wouldn't eat it, and I'm fairly certain these kids don't eat this way every day if the fact that they're both fairly skinny says anything, so I'm not really worried there. But it still doesn't sound appetizing to me. Especially mixing Velveeta with processed cheese powder. Blech.

Heh!  It totally made me laugh when I saw this.  These kids obviously don't eat this way normally and a occasional crazy meal when you have the metabolism of a kid is just fun!  I also am coming from being a mommy of three competitive swimmers.  My kids would gobble that up in a second--not that I would probably feed it to them.  Yey again, my 6'1" 14 year old that weighs an all muscle 147 just graduated to eating two chipotle mega burritos and is still hungry.  It's either a tapeworm or the 20+ hours a week that he swims. :)  When I showed the video to him last night on my blog, his first question was, "When are we making this??"  This is also the kid that will eat 2-3 raw red peppers straight and eat a case of cuties if you let him.  I guess it's all about balance.
