American quick service hamburger company Wendy’s has added new smoky mushroom bacon cheeseburger and baked potato to its fast food menu.

The new burger is loaded with smoky, sautéed portabella mushrooms, melted asiago cheese, crispy Applewood smoked bacon and crunchy fried onions atop of juicy, beef.

According to the company, it sources fresh beef available in the neighbouring US, Canada, and Alaska.

In order to satisfy diners who prefer the same cheeseburger without beef, Wendy’s is offering its new smoky mushroom bacon potato with sautéed portabella mushrooms, cheddar cheese sauce and crispy Applewood smoked bacon.

The fast food restaurant’s new offerings will be available for a limited time at participating locations.

Wendy’s hamburgers were introduced by Dave Thomas to Columbus, Ohio, in 1969. Its menu offerings include fries and sides, hamburgers, sandwiches, salads, chicken wraps, frosty, beverages, chillers and many more.
