While some foodservice outlets experiment with blended burgers featuring mushrooms, California-based Slater’s 50/50 has gone all-in with a blend of beef and bacon.

Scott Slater, founder of Slater’s 50/50, believes that bacon is meat candy, and this conviction inspired him to create the blended bacon burger, according to the company’s website. The 50/50 is patty made of 50 percent ground bacon and 50 percent Holstein ground beef. The company’s supplier is Brandt Beef – The True Natural, which is a family owned beef producer in Southern California.

But bacon isn’t the only thing about Slater’s 50/50 that’s bound to appeal to diners. Dogs are welcome at Slater’s 50/50 locations with patio seating, and canines get their own menu which offers a 50/50 patty, beef patty, two chicken strips, two bacon strips or a turkey patty.
