I have to admit, it's a nice idea. McDonald's recently started a new campaign asking Texans to create the ideal burger that best represents the Lone Star State. It kind of made my mouth water a bit as I customized my ideal burger but I think I nailed it (in my humble opinion) with the somewhat limited amount of ingredients I threw onto the crowd sourced sandwich.

What's more exciting is the winning burger will be brought to life with the name you deem it, and on top of that, the winner wins $5,000.

Here are the ingredients to what I call the "McWhataburger Wannabe":

What would you add or subtract to make this your authentic burger? Besides just going to Whataburger of course.

  • Texas Toast
  • Third Pound Patty
  • Pepper Jack
  • Caramelized Onions
  • Grilled Mushrooms
  • Applewood-Smoked Bacon
  • Sliced Jalapenos
  • BBQ Sauce
