KANSAS CITY, MO. — Bacon is sizzling on seasonal menus.

Fast-casual concept BurgerFi is introducing the Ultimate Bacon Bash meal, which includes the Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburger, bacon cheese fries and a limited-time maple bacon shake.

“BurgerFi loves to put a new spin on a classic fan favorite,” said Paul Griffin, chief culinary officer of BurgerFi. “There’s never too much bacon, and this sweet and savory combination continues to win for foodies and BurgerFi on redefining what consumers love and crave the most.”

The Garlic Butter Bacon Burger is returning to Sonic Drive-Ins nationwide for a limited time. The sandwich has a beef patty topped with garlic butter, two slices of American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and grilled onions on a toasted bakery bun.

Headlining the holiday menu at First Watch is the Million Dollar Breakfast Sandwich, which has a pork sausage patty, an over-easy egg, smoked Wisconsin gouda, fresh arugula and Mike’s Hot Honey drizzled on a griddled English muffin. A key component is the restaurant chain’s signature Million Dollar Bacon, which is hardwood smoked and baked with brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and maple syrup.

“I can say this Million Dollar Breakfast Sandwich is one of my favorite seasonal menu items we had the joy of creating,” said Shane Schaibly, senior vice president of culinary strategy for First Watch. “The combination of Mike’s with our fan-favorite Million Dollar Bacon, smoked Wisconsin Gouda, all-natural pork sausage and a griddled English Muffin — it’s a flavor combination that you simply have to taste for yourself.”
