For One Day, Burger King Will Serve A Whopper Donut At Select Stores

Burger King just announced that they’ll be releasing a Whopper Donut for National Donut Day. While not a traditional donut, this new entry to the King’s menu does resemble one in the sense that it has a big hole cut through it. Yup, straight through the core and into China.

Only minutes after he heard the news, fellow Foodbeast and donut writer Constantine Spyrou scoffed:

Burger King’s taking a Whopper, turning it into a donut, and then calling it and the part cut out two separate burgers?!

For those upset about getting a Whopper with less ingredients, the limited-time item will be served with a “free” mini slider to fill that void. Think of the slider as a snack you can save for later in the day.

Whopper-lovin’ burger heads who can’t miss such an exclusive will need to line up at these exact coordinates on June 1:

128 Tremont Street, Boston, Mass.

1100 5th Street, Miami Beach, Flo.

1601 N. Hacienda Boulevard, Los Angeles, Calif.

327 West 42nd Street, New York City, NY.

2450 S 1900 W, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Now if McDonald’s and Arby’s limited exclusives in the past were any indication, you may want to line up early to get your hands on one.

Carl’s Jr. Creates Triple-Stacked Slider As Part Of New Mini Burger Lineup

Carl’s Jr. just dropped a lineup of massive snack-sized burgers into their menu, including a triple-stacked slider that has as much beef as a regular hamburger.

The new Charbroiled Sliders come in single, double, or triple patty versions. Meant to be a new snack option for Carl’s, the largest slider can actually be a meal on its own. That’s because each patty weighs in at 1.3 ounces, meaning eating a Triple Slider is basically the same thing as downing a quarter pound burger. Except it’s about triple the height, which means I’m gonna have a hard time loosening my jaw to get around the whole thing.

The sliders are definitely on the cheap end, and appear to be Carl’s Jr.’s foray into the fast food ultra-cheap value menu wars. The single slider is just $1, the double slider costs $1.50, and the triple slider is $2. Each one gets topped with classic burger fixings: American cheese, mustard, ketchup, pickle, and diced onion.

You can also get the sliders in a $5 Box, which comes with two double sliders, fries, a 20 oz. drink, and a chocolate chip cookie.

Carl’s Jr. is also debuting a “Happy Hour” that just involves the double-stacked sliders. From 2-5 pm daily, their price will drop down to a buck. It does seem like a small discount, but if you take advantage of the “Happy Hour,” you’re basically ordering single sliders and getting double the meat. It’s all about the gains, y’all.

All of these offers involving the sliders will be around until April 24.

Arby’s Is Now Selling PIZZA… Sliders

Arby’s has been knocking it out of the park as of late with their limited-time menu offerings. The Venison Burger saw two different launches recently and both flew off the restaurant’s countertops faster than a deer lost in a campsite.

The sandwich chain’s newest item, believer it or not, is pizza.

No, Arby’s didn’t suddenly become a pizza chain over night. Rather, the company has released a new Pizza Slider. The new item features pepperoni, salami, melted provolone cheese, and a roasted garlic marinara sauce on a slider bun.

The new slider will be available at participating Arby’s locations through the end of June. It will join the ranks of Arby’s slider lineup which includes: Ham ‘n Cheese Sliders, Roast Beef ‘n Cheese, Buffalo Chicken, and Turkey ‘n Cheese.

This Is What a $400 White Castle Slider Looks Like

Expensive-White-Castle

If you have a $250 gift card for Williams-Sonoma, chances are you’ll probably spend it on some practical kitchenware. If you’re Nick from Dude Foods, however, you’re pretty much expected to do something a little different.

Using the entirety of the gift card, shipping included, Nick bought an ounce of Italian white truffles. One would assume that after purchasing such an extravagant ingredient he’d save it for a special occasion or some refined dish.

Nope. Homie threw it on a White Castle slider.

It wasn’t a complete waste of the ingredient, however. Since it is Dude Foods, Nick gathered some of the most expensively fancy ingredients he could find. This included both Pleasant Ridge Reserve and Hook’s 15 Year slices of cheddar, duck foie gras, port wine pate, Russian caviar, prosciutto, a fried quail egg and even some gold flecks. All stuffed into a White Castle slider.

Clocking in at $400, this burger definitely made a bold statement.

So how does a $400 burger stacked with truffles, caviar and foie gras taste?

According to Nick, terrible.

New White Castle Sriracha Chicken Sliders Come Topped with Jalapeño Crisps

sriracha

Yes, the Sriracha trend might be a little (okay, a lot) tired by now, but as long as there are still restaurants who do it justice, who’s complaining?

Over on the East coast, White Castle is releasing two spicy new chicken sliders featuring Sriracha-breaded patties and chipotle mayonnaise. Especially nice are the spicy jalapeño cheese and crunchy jalapeño crisps on the Ultimate version. How no one had thought of the crisps before is beyond us (they’re like regular jalapeños, but chips!), but kudos to White Castle. We like how your stoner little minds work.

Per the WC Facebook, there’s no official release date yet. If you’re in the area though, feel free to send us some in poor White Castle-less California once they do. Thanks babes.

How to Make It

1. In a large mixing bowl combine all of the dry rub ingredients and mix well. Score the pork butt. In a separate bowl, pour the olive oil/Jägermeister mix over the butt and rub it to coat. Add the entire dry rub and rub aggressively.Refrigerate covered overnight.

2. For the bbq sauce: Sauté the onions in olive oil until translucent. Add the honey and the brown sugar. Allow the honey, brown sugar and onions to come to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the Jägermeister, ketchup, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard and cider vinegar. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 2 hours. Add coffee and coffee grinds. Simmer for 4 hours, stirring continuously. Add the chipotle and the adobo sauce. In a blender, blend the sauce and season with salt and pepper. Strain through a china cap and allow to cool.

3. For the jicama slaw: Use the lime juice to first preserve the color of the avocado. Then, combine of all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and heat grill to high. Char the pork on the grill on both sides. Then, slather the pork in 2 cups of the bbq sauce and place in a deep half-hotel pan. Fill the hotel pan with chicken stock until the butt is mostly covered. Bring the liquid to a simmer on the stove-top over medium/high heat. Cover with parchment paper and tinfoil and finish cooking in the oven for 2.5–3 hours or until the pork meat can be loosened with a gentle tug of a fork.

5. Allow thepork to cool in the braising liquid. Pull the pork and place into a separate bowl. Mix with the remaining bbq sauce until the pork is moist and saturated.

6. Portion approximately 4 ounces of pulled pork for each slider bun and top with the jicama slaw.
