The Theta Burger

The Theta Burger has been an Oklahoma City favorite for more than 80 years, allegedly tracing its roots to the ฮšฮ‘ฮ˜ sorority. Traditionally built with mayo, pickles, onions, shredded cheddar, and hickory bbq sauce โ€“ #meatheadz combined the bbq & mayo to make a comeback sauce for our Bacon Blend version.

The Big Boy

#meatheadz have loved these double-decker burgers since 1936. Whether your favorite is from California’s original Bob’s Big Boy, Michigan’s Big Boy Restaurants, or Ohio’s Frisch’s Big Boy, they are the original superburgers – gotta eat ’em all! Or enjoy all three with Bacon Blend ๐Ÿ˜‹.

The Butter Burger

Calling all cheeseheads! This Butter Bacon Blend right here was inspired by Solly’s Grille, a Milwaukee-area staple that dates back to the 1930s. There’s no better time to indulge in a Butter Burger than National Hamburger Month. These ooey-gooey, melty burgers are to die for. May the 4th be with you #meatheadz, several napkins you will need.

The Steakburger

What came first, the Steak Burger or the Double Cheeseburger (๐Ÿฃ or ๐Ÿฅš) What’s the fun in knowing? Gus Belt at Steak ‘n Shake was slinging both of these since the 1930s. On Easter Sunday, #meatheadz would rather sink their wabbit teeth into Bacon Blend than a plain old honey ham.

The Onion Burger

#meatheadz are taking the Bacon Blend kitchen to El Reno, OK for this next classic – the smashed Fried Onion Burger was invented at the Hamburger Inn in 1930. Tucker’s Onion Burgers, an OKC mainstay, is keeping this Depression Era tradition alive by smashing paper thin onions onto their burgers.

The Crumbly Burger

The scrumptious Crumbly Burger (aka Loose-Meat Sandwich) originated in Muscatine, IA at Maid-Rite in 1926, with their a-alike NuWAY hitting the scene several years later. Here’s our take on the American classic using crumbled Bacon Blend for all the #meatheadz out there.

The LTO “Square” / The Olive Burger

Move over mustard & pickles, make way for LTO. Kewpeeโ€”one of the original burger drive-insโ€”was founded in 1923 in Flint, MI and was the 1หขแต— 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.

The Slugburger

Sink your teeth into this deep-fried 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.

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.
