McDonald’s Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder with Cheese is sort of a mixture of two different Quarter Pounder varieties — Quarter Pounder Deluxe and Quarter Pounder Bacon – however with the same old condiments kicked to the curb, the pickles punched out of the park, and the onions out of the image.
The most recent Quarter Pounder variation contains a beef patty, two American cheese slices, applewood smoked bacon, Roma tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and a brand new smoky sauce on a toasted sesame seed bun. It’s additionally accessible with two beef patties.
Earlier than seeing photos of this burger, I assumed due to the “smoky” in its identify that it might have a barbecue sauce. However as you may see within the photographs, the smoky sauce seems to be like mayonnaise or ranch dressing. Its tangy and smoky taste makes it just like a bacon-flavored ranch dressing, nevertheless it doesn’t have a robust taste regardless that it’s on each buns.
Is the sauce tasty sufficient that I’d need it on each McDonald’s burger? I’m undecided as a result of I really feel it’s there particularly to reinforce the bacon’s taste, very like the new fudge within the new Oreo Fudge McFlurry enhances the chocolatey cookie crumbles. So placing it in burgers that don’t have bacon won’t work. Talking of the pork, I liked biting into the slices I had in mine. They had been thick, salty, meaty, barely crispy, and, as I’ve skilled with the common bacon Quarter Pounder, paired nicely with the meat patty.
The lettuce was crunchy, considerably inexperienced, and fell out from the burger prefer it was pretending to be in a Huge Mac. As for the Roma tomatoes, two shiny purple slices added a barely candy and acidic chew. Whereas consuming the burger, I forgot two American slices had been in it as a result of my style buds didn’t discover them. As an alternative, they ended up extra targeted on the bacon and smoky sauce.
Total, McDonald’s Smoky BLT Quarter Pounder with Cheese is a tasty variation of its traditional burger, and it efficiently makes me consider a BLT. I do imagine its identify is extra of a mouthful than the burger itself, however I suppose I needs to be glad that it’s not the McDonald’s Smoky Bacon Lettuce Tomato Quarter Pounder with Pasteurized Course of American Cheese.
