Where’s the beef? Not in the ‘Merica burger. If you don’t believe there’s such a thing as too much bacon, you’ve got kindred spirits among the creative minds at Slater’s 50/50, a small, pork product-obsessed California burger chain.
Slater’s 50/50 is a trio of restaurants in Southern California that has been making a name for itself with its only-in-America blend of 50% beef and 50% bacon in its burgers. While that might be enough bacon for many people, Slater’s has now introduced The ‘Merica burger, featuring a patty made of 100% ground bacon topped with a slice of thick cut bacon, a sunny side up egg, a slab of bacon cheddar cheese, and, of course, “bacon island” dressing .
The name is awesome! I don’t know…I would try ONE BITE just to say I did. I think I might like it better on a bed of grits, hold the sauce. I love bacon, but this is over the top. Bacon ice cream, however, is surprisingly delicious.
