One hamburger and one chicken sandwich make their debut at the Wisconsin-based fast casual chain, Culver’s, while a second hamburger will debut in the coming months.
QSR Magazine today reports on the arrival of the Pepper Grinder Bacon ButterBurger and Pepper Grinder Bacon Chicken Sandwich. The former takes the restaurant’s signature sandwich, the ButterBurger (a two ounce beef patty topped with pickles, onion, ketchup and mustard and served atop a buttered, four-inch, toasted bun), and adds “hot pepper cheese and hand-mixed four-peppercorn mayonnaise, along with bacon.” The Pepper Grinder Bacon Chicken Sandwich uses the new ingredients, in addition to lettuce and tomato, to complement a breaded or grilled chicken breast patty on a buttered hoagie bun.
Yet another offering, the Luau ButterBurger, will soon follow. The Sauk Prarie Eagle notes that the sandwich arrives as the winning recipe submitted to the Ultimate ButterBurger Build-Off Contest, which challenged customers to invent their own, unique ButterBurger variation. Ingredients that comprise the new sandwich include “a pineapple ring marinated in teriyaki sauce, a slice of Wisconsin cheddar cheese and the traditional ButterBurger.”
The Pepper Grinder Bacon ButterBurger and Pepper Grinder Bacon Chicken Sandwich both remain on the Culver’s menu until September 19. The Luau ButterBurger launches on an undisclosed date for a limited time at the chain’s flagship location in Wisconsin, with a possible national rollout later.
