World’s Biggest Winners

Foods that guaranty to pack on the most pounds

Every once in a while, we encounter a country that has some sort of food that you must try. It is usually something that if you had more than once, you might not ever fit into your clothes again. We have had quite a few meals like this, but there are three in particular that stand out at what we will call the “World’s Biggest Winners” … guaranteeing to pack on the pounds if consumed regularly. Note that these dishes are all meant for 1 person, yet we shared them, and still felt overwhelmed! Drum roll please….

  1. Coming in at #3, the Franscecia from Porto, Portugal (Our nickname: heart attack between two slices of bread)A sandwich that has been ranked as one of the top ten sandwiches of the world, consisting of wet-cured ham, linguica, fresh sausage, and steak between slices of wonder bread, topped with tomatoe, fried egg, cheese, and a beer sauce. Served with french fries.

  1. 2, the Pljeskavica near Kragujevac, Serbia (Our nickname: hamburger taco) A few hamburgers without the bun, folded around cheese and ham like a big calzone.

  1. …and the #1 Biggest Winner is the Chorvitos of Montevideo, Uruguay (Our nickname: cholesterol on a platter)Can be a sandwich or platter. Churrasco beef, bacon, ham, egg, olives, all under melted cheese, served with enough fries to feed a family of five.
