Chefs continue to flex their delicious creativity in the kitchen with sweet and savory combinations that are sure to lead to heavenly heart attacks around the world; the latest insane dish to be served up is the Monte Cristo Burger. It is a monstrous creation made up of a beef patty covered in Gruyere fondue and prosciutto that has then been sandwiched between two vanilla custard-soaked buns that have been deep fried and dusted with powdered sugar.

Conceived by Michael Voltaggio for Umami Burger, a restaurant chain based in California, the Monte Cristo Burger is a limited edition creation that was revealed this week. If the Monte Cristo Burger did not impress already, it comes with a side of maple syrup as the perfect finishing touch.
