Deep Fried Cheeseburger at the National Hamburger Festival in Akron, OH [VIDEO]


If you’re like me part of you is saying yum that sounds delicious, while the other part of you is saying is this really necessary? The deep fried cheeseburger made its debut this weekend at the National Hamburger Festival in Akron, Ohio. Get a look at this tasty burger after the jump.

“We cook the cheeseburger, put it on a bun and dip it in batter before dropping it in a deep fryer,” said Drew Cerza, the festival’s founder.

Cerza came up with the idea for a deep-fried burger alongside a chef at a local burger restaurant. He wanted to combine two of his favorite things — hamburgers and chicken wings. Cerza said the special batter is a cross between funnel-cake batter and pancake batter, making the deep-fried cheeseburger both sweet and savory.

I bet they serve it up with a side of Lipitor and a ride to the hospital.

The Hamburger Festival started six years ago in Akron, one of at least four places that claim to be the birthplace of the burger. I don’t know about you but I would try this burger.
