Mashed brought this recipe to our attention as shared by chef and recipe developer Jason Goldstein of Chop Happy.

Make your own Wendy’s Baconator burger

According to Goldstein, this recipe is “super easy,” so wow that doesn’t add pressure at all! Before diving into the recipe, the source reminds readers that the Baconator has 960 calories and 66 grams of fat. On top of this, it also has 1,540 milligrams of sodium, yikes!

Not to kill the mood, the source only wanted to warn us that this isn’t the ideal daily meal, even for us guilty eaters, but it’s tasty to try from time to time.

Now, the full recipe can be found on mashed, but to give you an idea, you’ll need 1 pound of ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, eight bacon strips, four slices of American cheese, two hamburger buns, ketchup, and mayo.
