Jared: A deep fried pork patty covered in bacon and jack cheese, topped with honey mustard and sweet chili sauce? I’m in. There are few things Ausies do right: wrestle gators, breed hot bikini clad women and, now, make fast food so good that it’s worth the heart attack. I bet you this sandwich alone, will make Crocodile Dundee rethink his choices next time he goes to Los Angeles.
Grant: Funny thing, dear reader, in that it’s Austria, not Australia. It’s a schnitzel sandwich, which makes for a pretty nice fit with Austrian culture. I do love the idea of a fried rib patty topped with cheese, bacon, honey mustard, and chili sauce. I imagine the key presenter at the McDonald’s meeting saying something like this: “Let’s take this block of pig fat and top it with milk fat, more pig fat, a mayonnaise-based sauce (oil-derived fat, for those keeping track), and, what the hell, something semi-spicy.” I’d eat one, but you have to keep in mind that when the McRib resurfaced here in the States, I ordered them in pairs.
