Burger King to introduce hot dogs

Burger King to introduce hot dogs
New item will be available nationwide on Feb. 23, 2016

Burger King is offering hot dogs at its more than 7,000 domestic locations, starting at select locations this week with nationwide rollout Feb. 23, the Miami-based company said.

The all-beef Grilled Dogs are being made on the same flame grills as the quick-service chain’s signature hamburgers and will be available in two varieties: The Classic Grilled Dog, topped with ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and relish in a bun; and The Chili Cheese Grilled Dog, topped with chili and shredded Cheddar cheese on a bun. Prices will vary by location, but the recommended price is $1.99 for the classic and $2.29 for the chilidog.

The hot dog itself is a custom product made for Burger King by Oscar Mayer. It was tested in five markets last year: Baltimore, Detroit, Kansas City, Memphis and Salt Lake City.

The launch makes Burger King the largest restaurant company to sell hot dogs, although numerous chains introduced hot dogs, added variations of existing hot dogs, or used hot dogs as part of a more complex menu item over the past year.

Mocha Frappe

Burger King Copycat Recipe

1 packet hot cocoa mix
1 tablespoon nondairy powdered creamer
2 no calorie sweetener packets (Splenda or Truvia)

Chicken Fries Are Back


Burger King New Item:

Availability: At participating restaurants while supplies last.

If you've ever wondered why Burger King, McDonald's and KFC consistently "bring back" shelved menu items (respectively, Chicken Fries, McRib/Shamrock Shake, the Double Down "sandwich") for a limited time, the key reason is simple: Quick-serve restaurants (QSRs) need to give Joe Consumer—who tires of the same old menu items all the time—a buzzy/fun reason to start patronizing their locations again.

Marketing the return of such menu items via social media is practically a no-brainer. For instance, since launching #chickenfriesareback on Monday, Burger King has averaged 380 tweets a minute while garnering 150,000 total social media mentions in the campaign's first 72 hours, according to Eric Hirschhorn, CMO of the Miami-Dade County, Fla.-based company.

"Over time, people forget what it is you have in the restaurant," he said, explaining the "bring back" strategy employed by so many QSRs. "So you bring things back for a period of time, and then you make business decisions based on that."

Angry Whopper

Burger King Copycat Recipe

hamburger patty
cooked bacon
pepper jack cheese
iceberg lettuce
spicy onion petals (recipe below)
sliced tomato
jalapeno slices
Angry Whopper Sauce (recipe below)
toasted, sesame seed bun

Preheat a barbecue grill on high. Toast both halves of the bun, face down, in a hot skillet. Set aside. Form the beef into a thin patty slightly larger than the bun. Lightly salt the hamburger patty and cook on the barbecue grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side.

Build the burger in the following stacking order from the bottom up: bottom bun, hamburger patty, Pepper Jack cheese, jalapenos, bacon, Angry Whopper sauce, onion petals, tomatoes, lettuce, top bun.

Angry Whopper Sauce
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Frank’s Hot Sauce
2 teaspoons real mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Onion Petals
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1 medium onion

Beat egg and combine it with milk in a bowl large enough to hold the onion; set aside.

In another bowl, combine flour, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, and cumin; set aside.

Cut about 3⁄4 to 1-inch off of the top and bottom of the onion, remove skin. Using a large, sharp knife, slice down the center of the onion about 3⁄4 of the way down, until you have 16 sections. Go back and cut all the way through.

Dip the onion petals in the milk mixture, and then coat well with the flour mixture.  Once you have coated all of the petals well, dip it into the milk and into the flour mixture again. Place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes while preheating the oil.

Preheat the oil to 350 degrees.  Fry the petals in the oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels.

International Chicken Sandwiches

Once upon a time, Burger King introduced an International Menu, meaning it offered Italian, French and American versions of a chicken sandwich.

  • Italian Chicken Sandwich, the chain's regular oblong chicken patty topped with sweet marinara and processed mozzarella cheese. 
  • French Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich, which was the same patty topped with sliced ham, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise.
  • American Chicken Sandwich version was topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.

Steakhouse Burgers

Remember when all the fast food burger joints were touting premium burgers. The BK XT Steakhouse Burgers were created in 2013 to compete with McDonald’s line of Angus Burgers.The BK patties were 30% larger than the McD’s Angus Burgers.

Steakhouse XT Burger: “The Steakhouse XT™ burger is all about an extra thick, seasoned beef patty topped with crisp lettuce, red-ripe tomatoes, onions, ketchup, and creamy mayo. 

A.1. Steakhouse XT Burger: An extra-thick flame broiled 7 oouce beef patty topped with mayo, crispy onions, A.1.® Thick & Hearty Steak Sauce, plus American cheese, lettuce and red-ripe tomatoes. 

Smokey Cheddar Steakhouse XT Burger: BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese and bacon as it’s main players.

Stuffed Burgers

Burger King first introduced Jalapeno Cheddar Stuffed Steakhouse Burger in 2011 as a limited time only item at participating restaurants. The Bacon Cheddar Stuffed Burger is part of the new 2013 summer menu . Both burgers are served on an artesan bun and topped with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and onion rings. Since you are making these at home you can customize them according to your liking.

I bought this gadget in the as seen on TV section at Walmart last month and have been playing around with different fillings.  You have to precook any vegetable or meat that you want to put inside.
It's a lot of work to make them. I found that if you freeze them first they cook up better. These burgers are huge and take about 15 minutes on a George Foreman grill which is definitely the best way to cook them.

Whiplash Whopper

After hundreds of reviews on fast food products, it’s a little shocking that the Burger King Whopper has never been featured in a review.  A new version of the Whopper burger on the market is enough to get me to shell out some money for a purchase.  A Whopper purchase is rare for me, but I was eager to give the newWhiplash Whopper a taste.  Maybe the Iron Man 2 tie-in has got me hooked or the fact that this burger has crispy red peppers…whatever the case, I bought the burger and here are my impressions.

The Whiplash Whopper featured your standard Whopper beef patty topped with lettuce, tomato, a spicy dressing, crispy fried onions red peppers and Pepper jack cheese on a sesame seed bun.  

Pizza Burger


Burger King’s Pizza Burger debuted in September, 2010 at its Whopper Bar restaurant in New York. The megaburger featured a 9 1/2 inch bun and four patties, cut into slices like pizza. It was topped with pepperoni, mozzarella, marinara and Tuscan sauce. The company said the burger is intended to be shared, but there are doubtlessly a large number of individuals – not to mention large individuals – who relish the challenge of downing the whole thing on their own.

Seasonal Holiday Treats

Burger King had these new seasonal holiday gingerbread treats available for a limited time during the 2013 Christmas season.

  • The Gingerbread Shake made with creamy vanilla soft ice cream, topped with crispy gingersnap cookie crumbles and finished with a swirl of sweet gingerbread sauce.

  • The Gingerbread Cookie Shake, vanilla soft serve ice cream with gingerbread syrup, whipped toppings and crumbled gingersnaps.

Chicken and Waffle Sandwich Bombs

Burger King tested a Chicken & Waffle Sandwich regionally in the Northeast back in early 2014. It featured a split waffle filled with the same chicken used in the chain’s Original Chicken Sandwich — was added to the menu priced at $2.29. The Chicken and Waffles test didn't go so well and disappeared very quickly. The online reviews were horrible.

If I were going to try to make to these at home I would grab some frozen Eggo Waffles and get some ready to eat breaded chicken tenders from the deli at Walmart.

Burger King's new menu has a purpose. Last year, Wendy's surpassed Burger King to become the second best selling burger chain in the United States. It was close: Wendy's had $8.5 billion in sales, while Burger King had $8.4 billion. (Both were miles behind No. 1 McDonald's, at $34 billion). In an effort to regain the No. 2 slot,  the chain has undergone a massive makeover, complete with Burger King new menu items, decor, and employee uniforms.

Burger King first unveiled salads in 2002, but the nation’s third-largest burger chain has long lagged behind McDonald’s and Wendy's in the salad game. Now the company is trying to make big changes, including three new “Garden Fresh” salad offerings. The Burger King new menu includes:
  • Chicken, Apple, and Cranberry Salad  
  • Chicken BLT Salad  
  • Chicken Caesar Salad    

All of the salads come with your choice of grilled or breaded chicken.

The Chicken, Apple Cranberry Salad has seven premium lettuces, crisp apples, sweet dried cranberries, and crumbly blue cheese. Served with a Creamy Apple Cider Vinaigrette.
