Bob Evans Can Claim the Single Fattiest Dish in Ohio



Fatty, sure, but delicious. Look at that. Mmmmmm.
  • Fatty, sure, but delicious. Look at that. Mmmmmm.

Ohio is full of fatty foods. It's kind of our specialty. The Buckeye state excels at comfort food, the kind of calorie-laden adventures into succulent tasteland that make us the 13th fattest state in the country.

Wonder what the fattiest is? (And by that, we mean tastiest, obviously.) put together a list of the fattiest food by state, and Bob Evans takes first place for Ohio in this undoubtedly unscientific study. (Seriously, how do you even begin to pretend to have a list of every meal served in every restaurant in every state?)

So, kudos to you, Bob Evans, for not only serving as Ohio's favorite hangover breakfast joint, but also for slinging dishes like the Sausage Biscuit Bowl, which contains the max amount of fat a human is supposed to consume in a single day. Alfalfa sprouts and egg whites are for wussies anyway.

Ingredients: Home fries, eggs, sausage gravy, sausage, cheddar cheese, scallions, margarine, in a biscuit bowl

Fat content: 61 grams of fat and 28 grams of saturated fat—just about the maximum recommended intake for an entire day.
