How To Make Maggie McFly's Baja Burger — Recipe

We present to you, the Baja Burger!


One of the coolest things about supplying a great Burger to so many restaurants is seeing the different takes on the American classics that each Chef or owner has to offer. Some of the most interesting menus are put together with high quality and amazing flavors in mind. To accomplish both, many chefs turn to all-natural and sustainable ingredients.

A perfect example of this is Maggie McFly’s. With various locations across Connecticut (and one New Jersey location on the way), they prepare all of their dishes from scratch using the highest quality products, including humanely raised chicken and Certified Angus Beef®.

Our friend Jenette Candee, the regional manager at Maggie McFly’s, shared one such tasty dish in the form of the Baja Burger, one of the chain’s signature half-pound Burgers made with 100% Certified Angus Beef® Chuck and Brisket. To make it at home, we recommend our Signature Blend to get that classic flavor every Burger fan loves.
