MONTREAL — KFC’s Double Down better watch its back.

Four Montreal men have created a behemoth of a meal that leaves KFC's infamous sandwich — made with two deep-fried chicken breasts instead of a bun — in its dust.

The creators have billed it as the greasiest sandwich ever. It's made from a gooey combo of steamed hot dogs, bacon and poutine, dumped on a French-toasted baguette and covered in maple syrup.

They then dubbed their Frankensandwich ‘The Angry French Canadian’ and estimate the whole thing to carry a whopping 5,343 calories and 207 grams of fat.

One of the creators of the gut-busting recipe, 25-year-old Harley Morenstein, defends his concoction.

“Gravy and maple syrup is not a disgusting combination,” he said on Thursday. “It’s got the loving warmth of the poutine we all know in Quebec with this sweet taste of the pure maple syrup.”

This week, the four friends posted a video on Youtube of them creating and eating the beast of a sandwich.

Morenstein said he’s a little taken aback by the reaction — the video has over 70,000 views and has been picked up by blogs all over the world.

“People love food,” he said. “These days people are being healthy, so they can vicariously eat these disgusting monstrosities through us. We’re the guinea pigs.”

Morenstrein said the glutinous friends plan on posting even more strange food combos soon, and they’ll be bigger and better, if not fattier.

“It’s not about just fatty foods, it’s about epic proportions,” he said. “If I could find a way to use cottage cheese in an epic matter, then I would do it.”
