Hardee’s Has a Bacon Melt with Velveeta Cheese


Throwing Velveeta on a burger isn’t as uncommon as one might think, especially for those with the late-night munchies. Hardee’s adding a Velveeta-filled option to their menu, however, appears to be a first for a major fast food chain. Because at the end of the day, we’d like to think their test kitchen is run by a bunch of 20-somethings with the munchies.

The Bacon Velveeta Patty Meltdown features a 100 percent Black Angus beef patty topped with grilled onions, applewood-smoked bacon and globs of melted Velveeta cheese. It’s then sandwiched between two slices of sourdough bread.

Customers can find the Meltdown  in 1/4 pound, 1/3 pound and 1/2 pound servings. The beef patties will more than likely be weighed prior to hitting the grill.

No word yet on how long they’ll be on the Hardee’s menu, though we’re sure it’ll be at least through early 2015. Velveeta aficionados can purchase the Meltdown at participating Hardee’s locations. Prices will vary depending on location and patty size.
