Sometimes you need the right level of acidity and the perfect price point to put two and two together. Sometimes you just need a healthy dollop of Nutella and a few choice strips of bacon. Welcome to the Internet.
In a new series called “Don’t Eat That!” John of Neatorama has decided to test one of the internet’s most firmly held dogmas – that Nutella and bacon make everything better – by combining two sandwiches which probably should have never been combined, the Reuben and the Elvis.
He describes his ingredients:
“The Reuben sections, which embraced the Elvis portion like the wings of an angel escorting the King of Rock and Roll to Heaven, consisted of:
2 slices of rye bread dipped in the above mentioned French toast mix
4 slices of corned beef, each 1/4 of an inch thick
1 tablespoon of Thousand Island salad dressing
1/3 cup of sauerkraut
2 slices of Swiss cheese.”
For those of you keeping score at home, that’s a peanut butter, banana, bacon and Nutella sandwich surrounded by corned beef, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island and sauerkraut. Say it with me, all together now. Ewwwwwwww.
Because this is the internet, however, John reports the sandwich turned out to be “surprisingly edible,” and was particularly taken with the combination of bacon and nutella. Now all it needs is a tiny dash of Sriracha salt to be absolutely perfect.
