Bacon makes everything better, including bacon.
That’s the motto that many businesses have adopted in the past few months with a flurry of bacon concoctions hitting the market.
In California the restaurant Slater’s 50/50 has created a decadent tribute to bacon with The ‘merica burger. The burger is composed of a patty formed by 100 percent ground bacon. It is followed up with bacon cheddar cheese, strips of bacon and bacon island dressing. A sunny-side-up egg is added to help balance out the pork smorgasbord, but just for good measure the bun is made of pretzel bread with bacon bits inside.
For all you patriotic bacon lovers out there the ‘merica burger is the “July Burger of the Month” at Slater’s 50/50 and this is the second year it has been offered up. It can be purchased for $11.45 at all of their locations in Southern California.
If you can’t make it out to Southern California then you can stop at your local Carl’s Jr. or Hardee’s for a burger that doesn’t ground the bacon in, it piles it all over.
The Super Bacon Cheeseburger is a typical order with a beef patty, American cheese, mayonnaise, tomato, onion and lettuce. However, six strips of bacon are woven together to create a bacon masterpiece.
Six pieces of bacon may not be enough for you, so be sure to order it “epic” and another heaping load of bacon will be added to make it an astonishing 12 pieces of bacon.
Bacon has even found a niche for those with a sweet tooth in the form of Sonic’s peanut butter and bacon shake.
Now go out and try some of these delicacies, you don’t want to miss your chance to join in on the bacon sensations that are sweeping the nation.
