Burger King Is Launching A New Halloumi Bacon Burger And Oh My
In a squidgy and salty double serving of good news, Burger King is not only launching a brand-new Halloumi Bacon King Burger but is bringing back its fan-favourite Halloumi King, too.
Cheese fanatics, this is not a drill.
Newcomer burger Halloumi Bacon King comes with crispy bacon sandwiched between two golden-fried halloumi patties, served in a brioche bun with lettuce, mayo and a fresh slice of tomato.
In case you need reminding, the much-loved Halloumi King Burger contains two fried Halloumi patties, onion, crisp lettuce and mayo, along with ripe tomato, all served in a brioche bun. Yum!
Both burgers are available from today and mark the expansion of BK's currently reduced menus at restaurants across the UK, just in time for a long hot summer.
It's no understatement that us Brits can't get enough of halloumi - we're the biggest importers of the stuff and chow down on a whopping 2,000 tonnes of the traditional Cypriot cheese every year.
We'll be accessorising our halloumi burgers with an ice-cold glass of coke and Burger King's signature golden french fries.
Elsewhere on the Burger King menu, the Bacon King Burger will make its return from today.
BK's bacon-filled staple sees two savoury flame-grilled 100% British and Irish beef burgers, topped with a generous portion of thick-cut smoked bacon, melted American cheese and topped with ketchup and creamy mayonnaise, all on a soft sesame seed bun.
The news comes as Burger King continues its phased re-opening plan following lockdown, with a goal of reopening 350 locations for delivery and drive thru by the end of June.
A number of safety measures including social distancing in kitchens and regular hand sanitising have been put in place to ensure the safety of customers, staff and partners.
Katie Evans, Marketing Director at Burger King UK said: "We are so pleased to be able to start expanding our menu again as we continue to ease out of lockdown with our phased re-opening plan.
"You asked, we listened and now we can finally bring a dose of much-needed joy with the return of our very popular Halloumi King Burger and brand-new Halloumi King Burger, just in time for summer."
We can taste the squidgy, salty halloumi already. Get us to a BK immediately.
