We are between takes on our Big Mac Pizza shoot. Matt and I had no idea the monster we had on our hands, that the Big Mac Pizza would soon be featured on all of our favorite news outlets, from Elite Daily and NY Daily News, to The Daily Mail and BroBible. With no idea that it would amass over 12 million views in a month, we decided to hedge our bets...and make some Big Mac Fries while our pizza baked off in the oven.
Long fans of In-N-Out and their "secret" Animal Style Fries (fries, cheese, spread, grilled onions) and Roadkill Fries (same as Animal Style, but with a burger patty), we felt that McDonald's was long overdue for a loaded fries option of their own. With an excess of fries left over from the pizza, I pulled out a small brownie baking pan began loading her up with fries.
Matt shuffled over to the stove, chopping and caramelizing onions. Much like the Big Mac Pizza, we wanted to maintain visual cues from the iconic Big Mac -- we crumbled up the meat patties, added more slices of cheese and let it bake off in the oven until the color looked presentable (everything was cooked already, it was more about aesthetics and gooey-ness now).
Once out of the furnace we dotted it with more pickles, caramelized onions, spread and sesame seeds. The result? Well, the result was bad ass:
