Default All-Bacon Burger Created By SoCal Burger Chain Slater's 50/50

Behold! A 100 percent ground bacon hamburger patty.

Southern California burger chain Slaterıs 50/50 whipped up the cholesterol-heavy
item as part of its new offering, the "Œmerica" burger. The all-bacon patty is
topped with a slice of thick cut bacon, a sunny side up egg, a new ³bacon
island² dressing and a heartly slice of bacon cheddar cheese.

Foodbeast reminds us that the 'merica burger is only the latest in a series of
gut-busting monthly burger creations.

Just last month the chain featured a Pulled Pork Burger, the month before
that was a Chorizo Burger, and in months prior theyıve had items like an Orange
Chicken Burger, a Lamb Burger and even a Chili Cheese Frito Burger back in
January of 2011.

It's also worth noting that Slater's 50/50 namesake is a burger that's 50
percent ground beef and 50 percent ground bacon. Other wacky creations include
the Burger Carbonara complete with creamy Alfredo sauce; the Peanut Butter And
Jellousy burger and the Thanksgiving Burger topped with stuffing, turkey gravy
and cranberry sauce.

OCWeekly has some insight into the burger's origins:

In a press release, the restaurant says this is the burger that started it
all: "The concept for Slater's 50/50 Burgers by Design came out of a dare at a
Charger's tailgate party between owner Scott Slater and some of his San Diego
State University buddies. Could a 100 percent ground bacon burger work? After
some tweaking and perfecting (and a few small grease fires), the answer was
yes."

Well, now we know.
