100% Bacon Burger Created

As everyone but Babe would admit, bacon is amazing. And Slater's 50/50, an American chain of restaurants, has really gone the whole hog with their new 100% bacon burger.

The 'Merica burger is a no-holds-barred 100% ground bacon burger, topped off with a sunny-side-up egg, bacon island dressing and bacon cheddar cheese. Just to reiterate, this is a burger of bacon and no mistakin'.

Slater's 50/50 has been making a name for itself with its regular 'Burger of the Month', and The 'Merica follows hot-on-the-heels of its Pulled Pork Burger, Chorizo Burger, Orange Chicken Burger, Lamb Burger and Chili Cheese Frito Burger in recent months. Indeed, the restaurant name comes from its flagship 50/50 burger, consisting of 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon.

Slater's revealed that The 'Merica was created following a dare between owner Scott Slater and some University friends. "Could a 100 percent ground bacon burger work? After some tweaking and perfecting (and a few small grease fires), the answer was yes." We guess when you make a pig-based dare, you reap what you Sow.

The burger is on sale until July 31: we can't wait to get our trotters on one.
