Fast Food Lasagna

Have you ever seen Epic Meal Time on Youtube? If not watch this video so you can better understand this post.

These guys make a lasagna using hamburgers from fast food restaurants and bacon instead of lasagna noodles, there is also an entire bottle of Jack Daniel’s in the marinara sauce. For the Super Bowl this year Jesse decided he wanted to make a fast food lasagna. In the video they use about 45 burgers, several pounds of bacon, marinara sauce (with JD), onion rings, Big Mac sauce and cheese. We shrank ours a bit and only used 12 burgers, 1.5 lbs. of bacon, 3 onion rings, 1 bag of mozzarella cheese, and bbq sauce (with about a cup of rum in it). 

We baked all of the bacon in the oven so it wouldnt get to crispy and curl up. It took about 30 minutes with the oven set to 400 degrees. (Sorry for the poor picture quality, we used Jesse’s iPhone instead of my camera.)

BBQ Rum Sauce

After the bacon was cooked we started layering the “lasagna.” Our order was burgers, bacon, cheese, sauce, burgers, bacon, onion rings, cheese, sauce, burgers, bacon, cheese. The images that follow may disturb you. 

Then we baked it for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees to melt all of the cheeses. This thing looked and smelled disgusting, but it actually tasted kinda good. It was like a giant BBQ bacon cheeseburger. Only about 1/4 of it was eaten, but the party we went to had so much food that it wasn’t very surprising. There were 2 pots of chili, at least 5 different dips and chips, homemade pizza pockets, pigs in a blanket, wings, cookies, cake pops, truffles and of course soda and beer. I’m pretty sure I have a food hangover and will be eating raw veggies for a few days…

Did you watch the Super Bowl? Or make an epic lasagna? Tell me about your weekend! 🙂


  1. I went to the beach and my puppy was very scared of the ocean, and I got run over by a shopping cart

  2. Oh man, I’ll have to send this link over the my boyfriend – He loves Epic Meal time.

    My boyfriend & I’s team is the patriots, so I drove home a very pissed off angry drunk around midnight last night and still managed to make it to work on time this morning :p

    We made chili for the big game, but I wasn’t allowed to share his recipe, lol. It’s a secret.

  3. Haha I was seriously laughing reading this! I can’t believe someone thought of fast food lasagna!

    I just so happened to eat a whole lot of crab fries with cheese whiz during the game, so my meal wasn’t much better…in a healthy way, not in a delicious way 🙂

  4. Wow! That is quite an intense version of lasagna! I had a couple of people at our house for the game, and there was entirelyyyy too much food for the 6 of us. We had sandwiches, cheese, pepperoni, crackers, cookies, pretzels with hershey kisses and m&m’s on them {cute little treat made by my neighbors}, buffalo chicken dip and I made mexican dip. I filled up on the mexican dip and buffalo chicken dip, and could barely fit anything else in my belly. We had sooo much food left over, it was ridiculous haha. But I guess that is how it is for super bowl parties!

    And I agree with you…I feel like I need to eat only fruits and veggies for the next week!!! Ohhhh boy! Haha!

  5. Oh. My. Gosh. That looks so gross. Why do I want to try it? It helps me keep my faith in mankind that only a quarter of that got eaten. It seems to me that something that unhealthy should only be eaten if it’s amazing, not “kinda good”. I still want to try it.

  6. Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove

    Isn’t it funny how much food always ends up at a superbowl party?? There were only 8 of us and we could have eaten for a week with what we had left over.

    I have never heard of fast food lasagna but it looks pretty interesting!

  7. Oh my, I think my cholesterol went up a couple hundred points just reading this. But, thanks for the chuckle, every step made me laugh a little more. And, then to have you say it tasted “kinda” good. Too funny!

  8. Brandi @ His Shabby Her Chic

    At first I thought it looked super grossed, but finished it looked almost delicious. Interesting share for sure! I’m sure it was absolutely horrible for you though!

  9. Oh…! I have never heard of fast food lasagna. I couldn’t decide if it was going to be really good…..or just really? And you answered my question. My husband would love this! Perfect food for the superbowl!

  10. Amy@BuffaloRoam

    Wowsa! I wasn’t sure what to think of this, but to tell you the truth my tummy was growling by the end of it. Hmmm…

  11. Whitney @ Drab to Fab Design

    Holy moly! That looks pretty interesting, for sure. I’ve never heard of Epic Meal time, I’ll have to check that out! I made spicy velveeta sausage dip yesterday. I always make enough for us to snack on for a few days 😉

  12. Krystle @ Color Transformed Family

    Wow! After giving up fast food a year and a half ago I can’t imagine eating that but I am sure it was fun to make… and a surprise for anybody who cut into it thinking it was a “real” lasagna.
    We had friends over for ate hamburgers, zucchini fries, pita chips, and roasted chickpeas… I felt like I was cooking the entire game but had a blast.

  13. Oh my. This looks amazing and disgusting all at the same time! But leaning more towards the amazing side.

  14. Kelly @ Corner of Main

    Oh wow. I think I would have a heart attack if I had some, lol.
    We actually did not watch the Super Bowl or the half time show…I think we were watching reruns of Chopped 😉

  15. Wow, that looks really healthy, but who cares when it’s the superbowl, right?

    That fast food lasagna kinda reminds me of a carl’s jr. western bacon cheeseburger, which I love!

    You guys are so funny!


  16. I think my arteries clogged just looking at those photos. But I’d want to try it anyway.

  17. Oh wow. I love me a fast food burger, but I’m not too sure about this. If nothing else, a good convo starter for a party 🙂

  18. Oh. my. lands. Bacon in a lasagna. Wow, that looks incredibly good!!

  19. My husband lurves epic meal time!!!!!!!! He makes me watch all the videos. HA! I’m ganna have to show him this…..we’ll have to host an epic meal time party with our friends!! So doing this!!
