PRODUCT: New McDonald’s Quarter Pounders

We don’t often head to McDonald’s to have a burger: Our neighborhood is dotted with gourmet burger emporia that command our attention.

But one of Mickey D’s new Quarter Pounders will have us stopping in more frequently.

Updating the Quarter Pounder menu—the QP was introduced more than 40 years ago—are three new varieties with different toppings:

  • Bacon Habañero Ranch Quarter Pounder Burger, with white cheddar, thick-cut applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato and a spicy habanero ranch sauce.
  • Deluxe Quarter Pounder Burger, with American cheese, tomato, lettuce, crinkle-cut pickle slices, red onion, mayonnaise and mustard.
  •  

  • Bacon & Cheese Quarter Pounder Burger, with the thick-cut applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, crinkle cut pickle slices, red onion, ketchup, and mustard (it’s the Deluxe with bacon plus ketchup instead of mayonnaise.
  • The classic Quarter Pounder Burger With Cheese—two slices of cheese, onions and pickles—is still available.
  •  
    THE WINNER

    While each will have its fans, to us the Bacon Habañero Ranch Quarter Pounder Burger is tops. We’re more than happy that “hot and spicy” is now a menu option at the world‘s second largest restaurant chain*.

    The spicy hot habanero ranch sauce is so enjoyable that we’ll be making a simple version at home: Mix mayonnaise, ranch dressing or Russian dressing sriracha† or other hot sauce.

    The new burgers are available at participating locations for a recommended price of $3.99. We’re lovin’ it.
     
    *Subway is the world’s largest restaurant chain.

    †Sriracha is a hot chili sauce from Thailand. It is made from sun-ripened chile peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. It can be found in the Asian aisle of some supermarkets, in Asian grocery stores and online.
