These Bite-Size ‘Pops’ Are Actually Deep Fried Burgers

The newest burgers at Slater’s 50/50 may smaller in size, but everything else about them is big — the flavors, the buzz surrounding them, and even more significantly, their impact.

Exclusively available as Slater’s ‘Burger Of The Month’ during August of 2017, the premium burger chain developed a sweet and savory combination of two new burger creations that are actually smaller-scale versions of their classic ‘Old Timey’ and ‘Peanut Butter and Jellousy’ burgers — deep-fried and served on a stick.

The “Old Timey” features a Black Canyon Angus Beef patty, thick cut bacon, American cheese, grilled onion, lettuce, tomato, and 100 island dressing on a mini brioche bun, covered in crispy panko breadcrumbs, and the “Peanut Butter and Jellousy” comes with a Black Canyon Angus beef patty, thick-cut bacon, and peanut butter on a mini brioche bun, coated in chocolate cereal crumbs and smothered in strawberry jelly.

Those who are already fans of Slater’s signature burger offerings will be able to enjoy them in a whole new way, while also contributing to a powerful cause. Slater’s Burger Pops were ultimately developed in collaboration with Foodbeast and Project Hope Alliance, a Costa Mesa-based nonprofit organization committed to ending the cycle of homelessness.

A portion of the proceeds from the Burger Pops at all six Slater’s 50/50 California locations — Anaheim Hills, Huntington Beach, Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga, San Diego, and San Marcos — will be donated to Project Hope Alliance. Even more, Elysian Brewing Company will match Slater’s 50/50’s total donation to Project Hope Alliance.

Needless to say, we expect these little guys to be pretty pop-ular.

Foodbeast Is Donating Proceeds From ‘Family Dinner’ To Less Fortunate

Foodbeast’s mission is obvious—we strive to offer value to our audience via the food-centric entertainment and information we provide via our food news stories, recipe videos, miscellaneous eating adventures, and of course, #foodporn. Some people are familiar with us from a mixture of all of these, while some know us best for one single channel. Above everything, you should know our hearts and souls lie with foodit’s what wakes us up in the morning, and it’s what sweetly tucks us into our beds every night.

We aren’t very into the idea of taking the food on our plates for granted, because at the end of the day, we know that there are individuals in this world who can hardly even pay for their groceries. These same individuals do not have the means to keep their children in school regularly. These same individuals cannot even afford a home. And even more, these individuals are living right in our own backyard.

Being based in Santa Ana, we are incredibly aware of how many are affected by homelessness in our beloved Orange County. It hurts to see your own community, your own family, in such a painful situation. Hence, this is the premise for our Foodbeast Family Dinner series—we wanted to somehow bring together our community, our family, to show support for those who are struggling each and everyday just to make ends meet. And it just so happens that food is the perfect way to bring people together.

We knew that we wanted to specifically benefit the Project Hope Alliance for our first philanthropic dinner, as the Costa Mesa-based non for profit organization has worked tirelessly to end the cycle of homelessness for children and their families in Orange County for over 25 years. We also knew that Chef Linh Nguyen would be able to create the perfect menu for the evening, one built around a comfortable, family-style palette, yet was very much “Foodbeast-worthy.”

Now all that’s left is bringing our community—our family—together, at the dinner table. We cordially invite you to be a part of our family too, and show your support and strength for those who need it most. See the details of the dinner below:

Who: Foodbeast x Chef Linh Nguyen x Project Hope Alliance x Melissa’s Produce x Goose Island Beer Co.
What: Foodbeast Family Dinner, Volume One (benefitting Project Hope Alliance)
Where: Foodbeast Studio Kitchen in the 4th Street Market
When: Saturday, July 2, 2016 (two sessions: 5pm and 8pm)
