They're calling it "Bacon Hour".

I know, I know, for bacon lovers, we need way longer than just one hour. But I'll take it.

According to a news release, McDonald's is adding some bacon-forward items to the menu soon, the Big Mac® Bacon burger, Quarter Pounder®* Bacon burger and Cheesy Bacon Fries.

So to celebrate McDonald's is offering one order of Applewood smoked bacon for free for one hour next week.

Chef Michael Haracz, McDonald’s Manager of Culinary Innovation says in the release,

““When we said there’s no such thing as too much bacon, we weren’t kidding. January 29, we’ll be upping the bacon ante—the bac-ante, if you will—and celebrating this glorious food favorite like never before,. I love bacon. America loves bacon. I really can’t wait to see the crazy and daring combinations our customers put together.”

Some things to note:

  • One order is two half-pieces of bacon.
  • Bacon Hour is Tuesday, January 29th from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

So how will you take advantage of Bacon Hour?

Pop it on your burger? Or really go nuts and bacon-ify your vanilla shake?
