This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUBBA burger. All opinions are 100% mine.
Southwestern Patty Melt is made between garlic bread, spread with chipotle mayonnaise, bacon, avocado and pepperjack cheese for a juicy burger with a kick!
We love burgers in our house and it’s always a family affair creating and crafting our own version of “the ultimate burger.”
I have to give all the credit to my husband for this creation.
It comes from his love of spicy, bacon and garlic bread, which to him, creates the perfect burger!
I mean just look at this picturesque burger. Don’t you just want to sink your teeth right into it?!
We recently discovered BUBBA burger in our local grocery store and we’re never turning back.
The burgers are high quality, high protein, clean ingredients (only one ingredient – choice chuck beef) and fun!
They have a wide variety across beef, turkey and plant-based and they’re gluten free!
We truly love them as they cook from frozen to hot and ready in about 10 minutes.
- 1 box (32oz) BUBBA Angus Beef burgers
