Eatin' Good in YOUR Neighborhood

This post is sponsored by Applebee’s. All opinions are my own.

It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a good burger. Give me a medium rare, bacon and cheese topped burger and I’m pretty much putty at the food version of Disneyland. The thing is, not all burgers are created equal.

Fortunately for you and me, Applebee’s is stepping outside the box.

Applebee’s is now offering the new “All-In” Burgers, which puts a creative twist on cheeseburgers, by smashing ingredients – like onions, bacon and even pineapple – into fresh ground beef before cooking to sear in the flavor, which are then topped with additional ingredients and served on a brioche bun for a better-tasting burger.
The American Standard: A new take on the classic cheeseburger, pickles, bacon and onion are seared in and topped with signature sauce and American cheese

Sweet Asian Pineapple: This spicy-sweet burger has sweet, juicy pineapple seared in and is topped off with spicy Sweet Asian Chile sauce and Jack cheese

Triple Bacon: Any bacon lover’s dream, this burger has bacon seared in and adds, you guessed it, more bacon, BBQ bacon ranch and cheddar cheese on top for the finishing touches

Mushroom Swiss: Portobello and button mushrooms are seared in for flavor and topped with smoky mayo and Swiss cheese.

K and his dad stuck with what they knew and both ordered the Triple Bacon burger. K is anti-cheese {I know, it's a travesty} so this was his burger. 

As much as I love bacon on a burger, I wanted something different and went with the Mushroom Swiss. Normally I'm not a big fan of Swiss cheese but on this it was perfect. There was so much flavor and it was cooked exactly the way I like.

Hooray for burger selfies!

And what’s a great burger without a great beer to wash it all down with? As much as I’d love to be a beer snob, I just don’t have the attention span for that. What I do have time for – trying as many craft beers as I can. If you’re into craft beer, or just trying something new, Applebee’s has you covered. They’re expanding their craft beer selection to add to the existing lineup of specialty cocktails.
