When you go to a cookout, there is always that one difficult and complicated question: Hot dog or hamburger?
And I’m just there with my jiggly belly like:

But you don’t want everyone to know that you’re the gluttonous American that you are and you say, “I’ll just have a hamburger.”
Now there’s a reason to never be shamed into only having one grilled delicacy… thanks to the HAMDOG!!!
A bun that’s half hot dog, half hamburger and 100% glorious!
Australian Mark Murray originally invented the Hamdog in 2004, and secured a U.S. patent for the “combination hamburger hot dog bread bun” in 2009. He introduced his sandwich abortion to the world when it was pitched on the Australian version of Shark Tank last year.
“Everyone told me it wasn’t possible, because you’d need a patent lawyer and it would cost millions of dollars,” Murray told news.com.au. “Even [Boost Juice founder and Shark Tank judge] Janine Allis told me that it was impossible to patent. She’ll be eating her words now.”
In Australia, the Hamdog costs $8 and is made of a Bunbury beef patty cut in half, with a Hunsa hot dog inserted in the middle. It’s topped with lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles and three sauces – mustard, ketchup, and mayonnaise.
