June 25, 2018

100% fresh beef quarter-pound burger meets smoky bacon in new flavorful, bold burger

Fresh beef, cooked right when ordered, in all Quarter Pounder and Signature Crafted Recipe burgers is now available in participating McDonald’s restaurants in the contiguous U.S.***

McDonald’s continues to innovate its Signature Crafted Recipes menu, which features unique flavor combinations and quality ingredients. To bring customers more of the craveable and delicious tastes they love, McDonald’s introduces the Bacon Smokehouse burger – as part of the Signature Crafted Recipes lineup – to its menu.

The new Bacon Smokehouse is a mouthwatering burger that is made with hearty and satisfying thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon, sweet and smoky bacon-onion sauce, crispy, in-house fried onion strings, real white cheddar cheese and a mild sweet mustard sauce. Customers have the option to purchase the freshly prepared burger with either a single or double 100% fresh beef quarter-pound* patty that’s hotter and juicier**. The burger is served on a toasted Artisan Roll. Customers can also purchase the Bacon Smokehouse with chicken (Buttermilk Crispy Chicken or Artisan Grilled Chicken) instead of a fresh beef patty, if preferred.

Signature Crafted Recipes by McDonald’s is a collection of premium recipe flavors that elevate 100% fresh beef quarter-pound* burgers.

The move to fresh beef quarter-pound* burgers is the latest step in McDonald’s food journey to build a better McDonald’s. It’s also one of the latest customer-led initiatives in the U.S. that builds on several other recent milestones, including All Day Breakfast, committing to only sourcing cage-free eggs by 2025 in the U.S. and serving chicken items made from chicken not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine.****

All McDonald’s fresh beef quarter-pound* burgers use 100 percent beef with absolutely no fillers, additives or preservatives.

Bacon Smokehouse will be available nationwide at participating U.S. restaurants beginning in early July.
