Cronut Burger, Breakfast Sandwich In Chicago: Devil Dawgs To Debut Hype-Heavy 'Wiches (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

It was bound to happen sooner or later.

The cronut, perhaps the most (over?)hyped food mash-up ever, has itself been mashed up with another greasy American favorite: the cheeseburger.

On Sept. 10, Devil Dawgs, a hot dog stand in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood, will unveil two new sandwiches that utilize cronuts -- or, in this case "crognets," as Dominique Ansel trademarked the original "cronut" term -- for what will surely be a gluttonous, sweet-savory culinary sensation.

According to DNAinfo Chicago, the sandwiches -- a "Demon's Delight" steak burger sandwich and a "Wake n' Bacon" fried egg sandwich -- will both be built on maple bacon crognets from Chicago bakery La Boulangerie, one of the first in the area to hop on the cronut craze-wagon this summer.

And here's the Wake n' Bacon:

Both sandwiches will also be topped with (what else?) American cheese and a remoulade called "Devil Sauce," according to Crain's Chicago Business.

"What can be bad about it other than you have to work out a little bit longer to eat more of them?" Devil Dawgs owner Alan Katz told DNAinfo.

The sandwiches will be priced at $6.99 apiece and are sure to sell quickly.
