Chained Up: Waffle House Hash Browns

"The Big Nasty."  It's my own personal holy grail.

What is "The Big Nasty" exactly?

Well, all I know is that when I wake up in the morning with a pounding headache, dry mouth and an empty stomach, it's what I'm craving -- a culinary cure for hangovers.

Country fried steak with FunYuns, Velveeta cheese, little smokies and ranch sauce on top perhaps?

Maybe.  I'm not sure.

But that never ending search for "The Big Nasty" perfection is what had me stumbling into Waffle House early one weekend morning.

Ok, it wasn't really that early.  More like noon.

Waffle House's entry into "The Big Nasty" competition was a full plate of their famous hashbrowns -- ordered smothered, covered, chunked and country.

For Waffle House rookies, that's hashbrowns with onions, melted cheese, diced ham and sausage gravy poured all over . . .

So did Waffle House's hashbrowns succeed in earning the title of  "The Big Nasty?"

No.  But it placed.  In fact, I'm thinking of giving their hashbrowns the title of "The Massive Disgusting."

Which is truly an honor to be proud of.

  1. You should have gone with the "All the way" hashbrowns - it includes a little bit of everything and top the sausage gravy off with some chili. That probably could've been worthy of the title "Big Nasty"...
