A brilliant new concept for a hamburger and hotdog hybrid is making its presence known on the Internet. The appropriately named HamDog is the combination of the two staple fast food dishes.
Unlike most quick food combinations, it’s not a hot dog with chopped hamburger meat and cheese on top, but rather a carefully designed hamburger with a hot dog placed inside with a custom bun to fit both proteins.
Here is the official image for the concept, courtesy of Google Patents:
The inventor, Mark Murray, was first seen pitching his concept on Shark Tank Austrailia last year.
Response to his product was pretty tepid from the panel, but after working in the food news industry for so many years we think it’s a GENIUS product.
According to News.com.au, Murray has been selling the product at local markets in Perth, Australia, and has been met with “incredible” response. Murray is currently looking for “resellers,” similar to franchisees, to buy a HamDog marquee for $10,000.
Hopefully one of those investors will find their way to California. We’d love to get our hands on a HamDog and slather the sides with mustard and relish, then load the middle with thousand island.
