As odd is it may sound, bacon plays the starring role in KFC Australia’s newest limited-time menu item: the Bacon Lovers Burger.
The Bacon Lovers Burger features an Original Recipe chicken fillet, two slices of bacon, two cheese slices and KFC’s new Baconnaise sauce, all sandwiched between a brioche-style bun. It’s worth noting that the bacon used on this burger is best described as back bacon. The slices are large and round – not the familiar, smaller thin strips we’re accustomed to.
Baconnaise sauce is exactly what it sound like – bacon mayonnaise.
The Bacon Lovers Burger sells for $6.95 ($5.18 USD) on its own, or you can pick it up as part of a combo with fries and a drink for $9.95 ($7.41 USD). It’s also available in a Bacon Lovers Burger Boxed Meal, where you get one Bacon Lovers Burger, one piece of Original Recipe chicken, popcorn chicken, fries, Potato & Gravy and a drink, for $12.95 ($9.57 USD).
