Get ready for the unveiling of “Bacon Head!” Before we get started, let’s take a look at what Fuku Burger in Hollywood is offering up to burger lovers:
Behold The Mac’n’Cheese Burger!
That’s right, it’s burger that is topped with a fried mac ‘n’ cheese patty…and yes, it’s good! It’s just one unique item topping off a burger…how about this one?
Japan’s Burger King Goes Pumpkin Crazy!
Burger King Japan’s BK Pumpkin, and its bigger, pumpkinier sibling, the Pumpkin Bomb. Via a Google translated press release: both burgers come with beef patties, fried kabocha pumpkin slices, bacon, and lettuce. They’re also topped with a nut sauce made from sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts. The difference between the two? Pumpkin Bomb has a whole bunch more pumpkin on it, ten slices in total. A Pumpkin burger? I don’t think America is ready for this yet….
So I had my first 5 Guys burger, and yes, it lives up to the hype…this is one juicy, cheesy, tasting burger – and it’s BIG!
I also mentioned that it’s “cheesy”, right? This baby was “all in” – everything they wanted to put on it, they put on it – and it oozed real good…
The key thing was, however, that it tasted good – you could actually differentiate the flavors from each other: the meat, the cheese, the lettuce and tomato…it had unique flavors, not aone big mashup of taste….bravo, 5 Guys!
Some Fun Uses For Bacon!
Yes, the menu for bacon just keeps expanding….like this delicious and VERY bacon-y mac ‘n’ cheese:
What made this unique is that the bacon was whole, and it was thick, so you needed a knife to eat your mac ‘n’ cheese….but it worked…as did these deviled eggs topped with chewy chunks of bacon:
Your Bacon Org Chart!
However you want to utilize bacon, just follow these simple rules of social media:
And here are some other examples of burgers taken to the extreme…like my current favorite, the “Cheezborger” from Billy Goats Tavern in Chicago…
The Billy Goats burger works because you control how much you add to it, and as you can see, I LIKE PICKLES…
Burger In A Box?!?!?
Oops! A cheeseburger in a box? Who else has ever bought a frozen, pre-made cheeseburger in a box and taken it home to the microwave…..
What starts as a lifeless patty and melted cheese can be “adapted” to become a masterwork of burgerdom…
But if that’s the case, why not just make it all from scratch yourself? One of life’s unanswered questions….here’s another:
A Fry Slider!
What? Am I the only one to take a burger and add my french fries right to the top, and then top it with tartar sauce? If so, you are missing something GOOD!
And sometimes you just want a burger that is SO juicy, you might have to eat it with a spoon?
And sometimes, all you really need is bacon, bacon, bacon!
And finally, sometimes you just need a “bacon head” to greet you in the morning, so here it is!
