The “Square” / The Olive Burger

Move over mustard & pickles, make way for LTO. Kewpeeβ€”one of the original burger drive-insβ€”was founded in 1923 in Flint, MI and was the 1Λ’α΅— to feature a square patty. Not long after, Kewpee franchisee Bill Thomas debuted Halo Burger. Their signature Olive Burger has green olives. Olives? On a burger? Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it.

Happy Presidents Day! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

The Slugburger

Sink your teeth into this little bit of Mississippi history. The Slugburger dates back to 1917 in Corinth, MS, when John Weeks began using potato starch to extend the day’s run of ground beef and pork (Depression Era Hack!) This allowed Weeks Cafe to charge a nickel (aka slug) per burger.

Go Garappolo! 🏈
Happy Groundhog Day! 🐿

The Slider

#meatheadz love to get their hands on these onion-grilled mini-burgers. Whether your go-to is Slider pioneer White Castle, southern favorite Krystal, or Jersey’s own White Mana, the options are endless. Bet you can’t choose just one. Good news is with Bacon Blend, you don’t have to.

Go AFC!!! 🏈

The “Poached”

#meatheadz brought a little Wisconsin into the Bacon Blend kitchen. Pete’s Hamburger Stand in Prairie du Chien has been cooking burgers in water and onions for over 110 years. This method of poaching patties allowed Pete’s to serve up 60 burgers every 10 minutes or so. Great for cooking for the masses! And proof that you don’t have to be fancy to be delicious πŸ‘Œ Now where’d I put my Beast Lite?

Happy National Bacon Day!
