A. I never liked mushrooms until I was in my 5th decade; I missed a lot. B. The first Mrs. Burgerdogboy, on burger outings, ONLY went for variations of a mushroom/Swiss burger (shows she knew more than I) Her “go-to” mush/Swiss was at the now defunct chain “Mr. Steak.” C. Portabella mushrooms are all the rage, and are actually very mature crimini mushrooms, marketed under a number of different names.
The size you’ll find on Wendy’s new Portabella Bacon Melt are often labeled “Baby Bellas” in the grocery.
Wendy’s new burger is topped with fresh cooked, thick-cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, and sautéed portabella mushrooms in a creamy cheddar cheese sauce made with Old English Cheddar.
Wendy’s shows no signs of relinquishing the # 2 spot they recently attained. They are working hard at menu, store, and personnel upgrades.
Although I wouldn’t personally think that cheddar sauce and portabellas would be a great combo, I really liked it. Add the applewood smoked bacon to Wendy’s fresh burger, and you’ve got a winning combination.
Speaking of combinations, I did get the combo, and Wendy’s fries upgrade continue to be one of the best in fast food.
I hope the Portabella Bacon Melt becomes a permanent edition to the menu.
Good job, Wendy’s.
