(Newser) – A new class of foodies is scoffing at calorie-consciousness and organic growing—what Robert Ashley dubs the Gross-Food Movement in Gourmet. A few tantalizing treats invented by the movement’s pioneers:

  • Porkgasm: a pig sculpture made from bacon, sausage, and ham, filled with smoked sausage, more bacon, and pork belly.

  • Taco Town Taco: the real-life version of a Saturday Night Live joke combines tortillas and beans with an egg-and-sausage-stuffed crepe, pizza, and a blueberry pancake, deep-fried and dunked in chili.
  • Bacone: egg, cheese, hash browns, and gravy with a biscuit on top, all inside a deep-fried cone of bacon.
  • Bacon Explosion: more—you guessed it—bacon wrapped around sausage and even more bacon.
