McDonald's Bacon Smokehouse Burger features a quarter-pound beef patty, thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon, bacon-onion sauce, crispy onion strings, white cheddar cheese, and sweet mustard sauce on a toasted Artisan roll.
Despite touting hotter, juicy beef, my beef patty was lukewarm at best even as there was a fair amount of waiting to get to me. Fortunately, I was dining in and when I brought it to their attention, they replaced it for me. The second burger delivered on the hot and juicy promise with a loose, coarser grind than is typical from major fast food burger chains.
The combination of bacon strips and bacon-onion sauce joined forces to give the burger an extra smoky quality. Neither one offered much in the way of crispiness though. The bacon-onion sauce was also good for a sweet, caramelized onion flavor.
That flavor, in turn, was enhanced by the charred onion note of the just-slightly-crispy onion strings. The slice of white cheddar cheese added a more complex, sharper taste than the mild and creamy processed stuff McDonald's has gone with in the past.
Given that it's actual cheddar, it didn't melt much. The sweet mustard sauce was a similar to a mild honey mustard. It contributed a light sweetness, a bit of tang, and a distinct mustard note.
Taken altogether, McDonald's Bacon Smokehouse Burger turned out pretty nicely with what's essentially a simple cheeseburger gussied up with some bacon, onions, and sweet mustard.Learn how Burger King is turning the tables on McDonald's, and adding another fascinating chapter to a story of one of the most iconic business rivalries of all time.
