In the interest of the American way of life, I would like to offer my latest guaranteed metabolism boosting, weight loss sandwich: The All American Fried Fat Sandwich. We know we love the crunchy bits of fat from your steak or chops and always secretly eat them even though we know we’re not supposed to. Why not have a sandwich devoted to these delicious bits? This masterpiece is the culmination of all things American.
Let’s get started, shall we?
Use either Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip. I don’t like either one of them, so I don’t care much about this part. But it’s un-American not to have mayo.
Used on sandwich: 6 T. 540 calories, 60 grams of fat, 30 mg chl., 540 mg sodium. Good stuff!
Yes, two different kinds of salt. The more sodium, the better your insides will be preserved.
Used on sandwich: 1/2 t each. Lawry’s: 760 mg sodium, Kosher: 960 mg sodium. Total sodium: 1720 mg. Tasty!
This is where the cheesy goodness starts to happen. Did you know that you can eat the cheese, complete with plastic wrapper? You can never have too much plastic in your system! We unwrapped ours. Your choice!
Add a slice of cheese to each bread and distribute the fried fat on one side, bacon on the other. There was just enough fat for one sandwich, good thing we bought two steaks!
We’re piling it on now! Um, um good!
If you want to go further, you can add the gravy. This could also be served “Open Face.” I used to love open face sandwiches when I was a kid. No surprises there. And, you guys, Gravy!
Delicious, salty gravy…
If you’re a real fan of fried food, this All American Fried Fat Sandwich can be taken to the next level with the simple addition of Fried Bread. First, fry up some Wonder Bread in the pan you cooked the bacon and fried fat in. What the hell? The kitchen is already a greasy, salty mess by this time. End pieces work nicely for this.
Assemble sandwich with fried bread, all other ingredients remaining the same, although you may feel the need to add extra cheese or bacon at this point. Go for it! Drizzle some gravy over the top and serve with a side of bacon.

Happy Fourth of July. Eat, drink and be merry and think of me on the way to the emergency room when you’re having a heart attack. Kidding!
Seriously, we eat these all the time! Enjoy!
