It being July 4th, I decided to try the “All American Thickburger” from Hardee’s…
Low Carb Style of course. 🙂
This sparked a big discussion on Facebook – lol.
It’s a 1/3 pound thickburger and split hot dog with mayo, cheese & dill pickle – all in a lettuce wrap. It was absolutely delicious! In a junk food sorta way. And yes, they stalled for a long minute with *that* special order. 🙂 haha. Still, it was a super nice “All American” holiday treat. YUM!
Here’s how I ordered it: “I’ll take the All American Thickburger, low carb style – no bun, and in a lettuce wrap instead. Make it plain with cheese, keep the hot dog, and add mayo and pickle please. So just burger, cheese, hot dog, mayo, pickle in a lettuce wrap.” (I tried to make it easy!)
How many carbs? Hardee’s says “0”.
You can use the Hardee’s Nutrition Calculator to modify anything on their menu and get updated nutrition facts based on your modifications. I took away the bun, tomato, ketchup, chips, etc and got ZERO carbs:
I entered each item individually into MyFitnessPal – which is what I often do when there’s no real easy way to enter something as modified as that – and came out with 3 net carbs on my end. I decided to go with that. Hardee’s counts their hot dog as Zero Carbs, but I played it on the safe side…
You can order pretty much anything off the Hardee’s Menu as a low carb version. They have a fun site at http://www.seedrah.com which is their name backwards, and it’s called “See the OTHER side of Hardee’s”. 🙂
Note: It may be called Carl’s Jr in your area.
I’m a big fan of the Low Carb Thickburger and the Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club so I get those often. You have to be careful with the LC Thickburger though, as it comes with ketchup. So definitely use their nutrition calculator and order yours without extra carbs/sugar.
Note: Their nutrition calculator only works online, not on the mobile version of their site. It doesn’t even work if you pull up “full site” on your mobile. Boo!
The Hardee’s Low Carb All American Thickburger was AMAZING.
It was a seriously nice treat!
