Happy, healthy holidays! If you were looking for a nice, light salad, oh my god, are you in the wrong place. But if we have your attention, you may as well grab a pile of napkins and keep reading.
The Latest in Beer Cheese Bacon Culinary Artistry
And what exactly is a Budweiser Beer Cheese Bacon Burger, you ask? Oh, we’re so glad you asked.
In late October, the 1,100-restaurant Carl’s Jr. chain began rolling out this new burger and the new Budweiser Bacon Beer Cheese Bacon Fries. Both menu items are served up smothered in a warm, beer-infused cheese sauce.
The waffle fries, drenched in sauce, are also topped with bacon crumbles, because of course they are. Why would they not be topped with bacon crumbles? This is America, people.
You won’t get a buzz from these fine products because any alcohol content is cooked off in the sauce. But you get that distinctive beer cheese taste, and the burger also comes with Swiss cheese and caramelized onions — and 940 calories.
How to Get Your BOGO Beer Cheese Bacon Burgers
Please note that this offer is available only after “regular breakfast hours,” according to the printable coupon. We call this to your attention just in case you were pondering having a couple of Budweiser Beer Cheese Bacon Burgers for breakfast.
