McDonald’s New Cheddar Bacon Onion Sandwich Debut

This week, McDonald’s debuted the Cheddar Bacon Onion Sandwich in stores nationwide. It is available on a burger or grilled chicken. The sandwich consists of two new premium toppings of white cheddar and grilled onions, combined with McDonald’s existing hickory-smoked bacon. It is topped with a mustard sauce.

While the Cheddar Bacon Onion is a new item, it’s actually been around in very similar forms such as the Clubhouse Angus with smoky dijon and the English Pub burger.

McDonald’s focus on white cheddar is further proof that there might be an increased focus on the cheese as a premium ingredient in fast food restaurants. Earlier this week, Burger Business reported on white cheddar’s popularity as a specialty burger topping based on rumors about a not-yet-released Burger King Wopper with white cheddar.
