The Carl's Jr / Hardee's Mushroom & Swiss All-Natural Burger

The Industry-first All-Natural Burger that Carl's Jr. released back in December, is now available at Hardee’s.  I must stress, these burgers boast grass-fed, free-range beef with no added hormones, antibiotics, or steroids.  This is a first from a major fast food company, and is an incredible feat considering how many burgers Carl's Jr. and Hardee's sells!

Whats more, Carl’s Jr. Debuted its first All-Natural Burger line extension featuring Mushrooms and Swiss.  This is one of my all time favorite burger varieties, so you know I just had to try one!  Today was that day.  Behold..

This burger was a sight to behold, and tasted every bit as good as it looks.  I must say that I forgot just how much flavor mushrooms could add to a burger, and the all natural sautéed mushrooms on this sandwich gave it an incredible punch of flavor.  The all natural Swiss cheese played perfectly off of the mushrooms, and added an incredible richness that paired wonderfully with the charbroiled, all-natural beef patty.  Of course, the fresh tomatoes, red onion, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and dill pickles, and fresh baked bun nicely rounded this sandwich out.

In the tradition of most Carl's Jr. Burgers, you're going to need more than just one napkin.  But hey, from my point of view.. it's not really a burger if you at least don't get a little messy!

I'm a big mushroom guy, and it seems like they are gaining a resurgence in recent years. Bart Minor, President and CEO for the Mushroom Council said the following;

“Mushrooms truly are ‘natural beauties,’ providing important nutrients, including B vitamins, vitamin D, selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin and more.  Our own research has found that Millennials, as well as Gen Z and Gen Y customers, love mushrooms because of their natural, meaty flavor and are looking for menu items that incorporate better-for-you ingredients that taste great--especially in this segment. Mushrooms are the perfect pairing and the 'natural' choice for this all-natural burger".

The new All-Natural Burger at Hardee’s is available as a single all-natural beef burger for $4.49, or as a double burger for $6.99. The new Mushroom & Swiss All-Natural Burger is available as a single all-natural beef burger for $5.39, or as a double burger for $7.89. Both may be ordered in a combo meal with fries and a drink. Guests may also substitute the all-natural patty on any burger on the menu for an additional charge.

One of these days I'm going to have to order a Double All-Natural, and I'm sure that day will come sooner than later!
