By Chris V. Thangham     May 3, 2008 in Health
Men's Health identified one food item that will fill all your calories needs not only for the day but for a few days. It is right named the "No.1 Worst Food in America."
In their article, Men’s Health names “Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing” as the No. 1 Worst Food in America.
Aussie Cheese Fries has a massive 2,900 calories, 182 grams fat and 240g carbs.
Even if you are unable to eat the whole thing and split it with friends or family, you still will be absorbing high calories, more than the daily requirement. And since not everyone eats just fries, then the sit-down meal may exceed 3,500 calories.

Here is the sample recipe of Aussie Cheese Fries. In the actual recipe Outback restaurant uses fresh potatoes not frozen fries.
Ingredients:
• 1 (2 lb) bag of frozen French fries
• 1 cup shredded colby-monterey jack cheese (An excellent suggestion is to use the cheese that is labeled as "Taco Cheese", cheese for Tacos.)
• 6 pieces bacon, cooked
Directions:
1. Divide the fries into half, and use the other half later.
2. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
3. If you do not have a thermostat, make sure the oil is hot enough, so that when you set a French fry in there it will cook immediately.
4. If the French fry sinks to the bottom, and barely bubbles, it is not hot enough.
5. Fry the potatoes in small batches, they are done when they are golden brown, and float to the top of the skillet.
6. Be sure to drain the potatoes on paper towels.
7. You can keep them warm in the oven while the other fries are done.
8. When all French fries are done cooking, and drained place them onto a platter.
9. Salt the French fries if you like, and sprinkle on cheese and cooked bacon.
10. Pop these back into a warm oven until the cheese begins to melt.
It may look tempting but watch out for the calories. If you still want to eat these Cheese Fries, then Men’s Health suggests starting the meal with a high protein dish like the Seared Ahi or the Shrimp on the Barbie.
