Slater’s 50/50 seems to be on a mission to get everyone on the planet to crave their food. I mean, they make their burgers with 50% beef and 50% bacon (hence the name) and everyone loves bacon.
Now they’re making a Sriracha Burger or, as they call it, “the ultimate tribute to the most amazing condiment known to mankind.”
And boy, is it Sriracha-y.
It’s made with a Sriracha infused 50/50 patty, Sriracha glazed bacon, Sriracha coleslaw, Sriracha sautéed mushrooms, Sriracha mayo, and pepperjack cheese which is then drizzled with Sriracha and served on a Brioche bun.
Want one? Well, the Sriracha Burger debuts Monday, December 9th at all locations for $10.95.
Rice Krispie Treats have come a long way since I was a kid. Back then, you mixed a box of cereal with some melted marshmallow, stuck it in a oven and tried to wait until it cooled before you started eating.
Now people like My Kansas City Mommy are making the dang things into burgers and watermelons and adding food coloring and chocolate chips and all sorts of food art shenanigans.
I don’t know how they made these burgers. I mean, I know what they’re made of, but I don’t know how they got the lettuce to look…lettuce-y.
If you think that’s awesome, check out the Rice Krispie Treat watermelon that actually tastes like watermelon after the break.

The television show Bob’s Burgers features a Burger of the Day that generally boasts a ridiculously funny name and is just plain ridiculous in concept. The folks at The Bob’s Burger Experiment are on a mission to recreate each and every one in all their crazy glory. It’s still a work-in-progress, but they’re off to a great start. The picture above shows the “Pepper Don’t Preach” burger which includes black pepper and garlic topped with a creamy raspberry chevre and diced cherry peppers. Yummy.
See the So Much Thyme, So Little Parsley burger after the break…

Japan adds to its list of amazing foods that you can’t get anywhere but there with bacon cubes. They’re not just a thing on their own, but a topping for a burger at Lotteria. They’ll be serving the Bacon Cube Deluxe Cheese Burger for a limited time beginning on November 29th. It will cost about $4.90 and comes with truffle sauce. As if the bacon wasn’t enough.
Let me know if this sounds familiar:
Burger King is rolling out the Big King once again (the burger premiered back in ’97, but only in limited markets for a limited time), and it features lettuce, white onions, pickles, a bun in the middle, sauce and a sesame seed bun.
Sounds vaguely like the Big Mac, right?
Anyway, that’s because the two burgers are pretty much identical–the only big difference is that the patties on the Big King are “fire-grilled,” a “special” feature that separates McDonald’s burgers from the King’s, according to consumer surveys.
In the fast food world, copycat menu items are a common occurrence. “Anybody can copy anybody in fast food,” says BurgerBusiness blog editor Scott Hume. “It’s an easy way to get something new on the menu.” Interestingly enough, consumers rarely pay attention to the particulars of who’s copying who–all they really care about is the taste, convenience and the price.
Keep your eyes out for the Big King at Burger Kings near you.

It’s difficult to eat a giant burger and still look well-mannered, but Japanese burger restaurant Freshness Burger has got you covered. They’ve designed the Liberation Wrapper to look like a woman just smiling when you hold the burger up to your face for a monster bite. Guys, either you have to look like a woman or you’re free to chow down on your burgers like beasts.

Word of warning: Once you start clicking, you won’t be able to stop. The Unlimited Burger Generator does exactly what its name implies. It creates a massive, mesmerizing stream of burgers of all sizes and types.
Guthrie Lonergan created the generator. Her other, equally mesmerizing work has been previously featured in the New Museum of New York’s Montage: Unmonumental Online exhibition.
Once again, you have been warned.

Think the Ramen burger is cool? Check out the Mac Attack Burger.
This mac and cheesy creation is the brainchild of Rockit Burger Bar in Chicago.
It tucks a gourmet beef patty, garnished with lettuce, tomato, green onion and Sriracha ketchup between two fried macaroni and cheese buns.
You wanna try it? Well, it was only at Rockit’s for a limited time earlier this month, but Mashable has the recipe so you can chow down on all of its’ delicious, artery clogging, cheesy goodness at home.
When Keizo Shimamoto unveiled his ramen burger, the Brooklyn foodies got all hot and bothered. But if you like your burgers a little more Philly, PYT has a Spaghetti Burger as their Burger of the Week.
It’s described as “Spaghetti cooked into tasty garlic butter buns. Mozzarella-stuffed meatball patty. Red sauce. Parmesan flakes.”
I’m guessing the heartburn is free. ::grin:: You have a week. I say go for it.
Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar in Dallas, is now serving this delicious-looking Pizzaburger.
Currently, you can get Five-Cheese or Pepperoni & Bacon Pizzaburgers. The Pepperoni & Bacon version takes a half-pound Angus beef patty, signature pizza sauce, grated cheese, pepperoni and bacon — then wraps and bakes them in hand-made pizza dough.
Mike Best, chief operating officer of Boston’s said, “Some things just belong together, and the Pizzaburger, first introduced by our sister company Boston Pizza in Canada, is our take on the perfect food combination.”
Um, I have a feeling it may also mean we’ll need extra Tums, but I’d try one.
