Wendy's Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger

Serving Size: 1

1/8 pound ground chuck -- formed 3 1/2" square
= (do this on waxed paper)
1 potato sandwich bun (hamburger-style)
1 thin tomato slice
2 slices Oscar Mayer Ready-Made bacon
1 slice Kraft Del-Deluxe real American cheese
2 iceberg lettuce leaves (to 3)
1/2 tablespoon Kraft mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon Heinz ketchup

Cooking Directions:
Pre-heat an electric griddle to 375 to 400 degrees. After its ready,
toast the bun faces lightly, about 30 seconds. Don't brown as much as the
McDonald's or Burger King buns. Set the bun(s) aside.

Microwave your bacon slices 30 to 40 seconds on a paper towel.

Dress the crown of your bun in the following order: Spread the mayo
evenly and apply the ketchup in a circular pattern. Next, it's the
lettuce leaves followed by the tomato. Put the cooked bacon on next, then
the cheese. Microwave for about 15 seconds to heat.

Cook the fresh or thawed burger patty about 2 minutes on the pre-heated
griddle, salting the top immediately after laying it down. After 2
minutes, turn the patty over, salt again, and cook for 3 more minutes.

When the burger is done, put the patty on the dressed bun, then the heel.
Wrap the burger in a 12- by 12-inch sheet of foil. Eat within five

This recipe yields 1 serving.

Sounds good; I love Wendy's hamburgers. I always assumed they use a lot of garlic powder as well, though I could be wrong.

First of all...which Wendy's did this come from?... I've worked for Wendy's for over a year now and I have made 100,000 junior bacon cheeseburgers... the normal junior bacon includes mayo, tomoato, lettuce...NO ketchup (unless requested) is on the crown of the junior bun...

actually the only "seasoning" that is used on the patty is a splash of salt (unless a "no salt" patty is requested)...

Also, for the record...the meat is fresh...not frozen...it doesn't not come in a can...(apparently there were rumors that it comes canned...ew...no, it doesn't)...the patties come individually separated in a sleeve...

Jolene is absolutely right... Mayo, tomato and lettuce goes on a Jr. Bacon, and they salt the burgers when they put them on the grill... Used to work at Wendy's, and know these things from personal experience.

Fresh meat, never frozen... Canned burgers?? Aack!
