Burger King Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger

If I had a dollar for every time Burger King released a burger topped with their mediocre onion rings, I’d have enough money to buy a Burger King burger topped with their mediocre onion rings. But even though Burger King’s onion rings aren’t anything special, when BK combines them with one of their burgers, it usually creates magic. There was the Rodeo Cheeseburger, Angry Whopper, Western Angus Steak Burger, Western BBQ BK Toppers, Rodeo Whopper, and now there’s the Burger King Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger.

This new Burger King sandwich isn’t the first one topped with onion rings and it also isn’t the first one to have a beef patty stuffed with, um…stuff. In 2011, they attempted to burn our mouths with their Jalapeño Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger.

I’m now going to explain what’s in the Burger King Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger like I’m an overzealous marketing person and use more adjectives than I need to. The Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger is made up of a juicy and cowtstanding USDA-Inspected fire-grilled ground beef patty stuffed with yummy, swinesational hardwood smoked bacon and delicious, gooey cheddar cheese, topped with fresh-cut, crisp, and greenish lettuce; ripe, succulent tomato slices; red, vinegary, and stain-causing ketchup; creamy, white, and oozable mayonnaise; and crispy, golden brown, and bad breath-causing onion rings all on a warm, squishy artisan-style bun.

With the inclusion of onion rings, I thought the Burger King Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger would’ve followed in the footsteps of many other onion ring-topped BK burgers and come with barbecue sauce. But alas, I had to settle for barbecue sauce’s condiment cousins, ketchup and mayo. However, and this is going to sound strange, the ketchup and a few other ingredients, at times, made the burger taste as if it had barbecue sauce. Besides that, the ketchup and mayonnaise made my hands look like I turned into the Incredible Hulk and SMASH STORE CONDIMENT SECTION!

If you’re like me and complain regularly on a semi-popular food review blog about how I can rarely taste the bacon in most fast food burgers, then you’ll be happy to hear the flavor of the bacon in the thick patty stands out. Every bite I took from this burger had a nice smoky and swinetastic flavor. It feels a little weird to be biting on bacon bits instead of strips of bacon and it makes the patty taste even saltier, but who cares? I can finally taste the bacon in a fast food burger!

Let’s celebrate with bacon!

However, what didn’t stand out were the bits of cheddar in the beef patty, which was the same issue the Jalapeño Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger had. But the onion rings did somewhat make up for the cheese by providing a mild onion flavor that went well with the beef and gave the burger a slight crunchiness.

With Burger King’s limited time only spring menu, they’re giving you a lot of new sandwich choices — a turkey burger, a new Whopper variety, a new chicken sandwich, a veggie burger, and this burger. If you’re having trouble deciding what to eat, I think you can’t go wrong with the Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger.

Pros: Nice flavor. I can taste the bacon in a fast food burger. Thick patty. Onion rings provided a little crunchiness. At times, the burger tasted as if it has barbecue sauce. BK burger + onion rings = magic.
Cons: Cheddar in the patty didn’t add anything. Someone may have put too much ketchup and mayonnaise in my burger. Awesome source of sodium. Available for a limited time. Going adjective crazy.

    Anyone else notice that BK now brands their burgers as “Fire Grilled” rather than the old “Flame Broiled”?

    • Simon says:

      I think the term ‘Fire Grilled’ explains the cooking process better than ‘Flame Broiled’ as, in the UK at least, a lot of people have no idea what broiled means.

      I love seeing all these products that BK US offer. It’s such a pity that Burger King in the UK doesn’t try new and exciting things like this and just resort to lame variations of Whoppers.

    My husband and I stopped for a bite to eat before we went grocery shopping. I was disappointed in this burger. Maybe it was just that particular Burger King, but it was a sad buger. The lettuce was the thick white part of iceberg lettuce, the tomato had a funky texture, the cheese must have leaked all out because there was hardly any, and our buns were kinda stale.. We always end up wondering why we still bother. 15.03 for 2 value meals.

    EWWWWWWWW!!!

    WOW! What a dissapointment! I wanted to try just the burger the other day and it cost me almost $6.00. Now for $6.00 I am expecting a huge juicy burger! WROMG! Small, wasn’t even in a box. Just a wrapper. It was way overcooked and just not at all worth $6.00. More like $2.00 max. I am so dissapointed!!!! This could of been a good burger had it been bigger, better cooked and juicy!

    Really? The only health-related claim was for sodium? What about fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, etc.? That’s the biggest reason this thing is so disgusting.
