Angus Burgers Coming To McDonald's

If you’re in Southern California and feeling adventurous, you can try the new experimental Angus Burger at McDonald’s. From the OC Register:

On Monday, McDonald’s will launch a line of three premium six-ounce burgers made with 100 percent USDA-inspected Angus beef in restaurants in Orange, Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties. Cost: $3.99. Here’s a list of the offerings.

Angus Bacon and Cheese: Bacon, melted American cheese, sliced red onions, mustard, ketchup and pickles.

Angus Mushroom and Swiss: Sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese and mayonnaise

Angus Deluxe: Topped with melted American cheese, sliced red onions and tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, mustard and mayonnaise.

Angus is a breed of cattle known for tender, marbled beef. The new “Angus Third Pounder” weighs in at a hefty 760 calories and 41 grams of fat. Add bacon and the burger shoots up to 860 calories and 48 grams of fat. —MEGHANN MARCO
