Travis Scott Burger 

On September 8, 2020, McDonald’s and Travis Scott collaborated to launch the Travis Scott burger, or as I like to call it, the burger of epic proportions. 

As expected, it became a massive hit. An upgraded version of the classic Quarter Pounder, it’s no wonder it became viral both on TikTok and in the real world.

But sadly, all great things must come to an end. The Travis Scott burger may no longer be sold today, but it lives on in our hearts forever…

And in this copycat recipe!

You don’t need to be a fan to fall in love with the Travis Scott burger. The combination of buns, beef patty, bacon, and cheese is a sure win.

And while this copycat burger may not have Travis Scott’s branding, it’s just as amazing.

Travis Scott Burger Ingredients: Burger Bun, Bacon, Ground Beef, Cheese, Dill Pickles and Shredded Lettuce


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sesame seed burger bun. Any brand works, but Pepperidge Farms buns look and taste the most like Mickey D’s. I also recommend toasting them beforehand. It makes all the difference.
  • Butter and garlic salt. If you’re toasting the buns.
  • Bacon. It’s what transforms the Quarter Pounder into the Travis Scott burger. Use thick cut, applewood smoked bacon. It has a sweet and smoky flavor that complements the beef patty really well. 
  • Ground beef. For moist and juicy burgers, always go for 80/20 ground chuck. 
  • Salt and pepper. A little seasoning goes a long way. Keep the flavors simple because you won’t want to overpower the rest of the ingredients.
  • American cheese. Two slices for extra melty goodness.
  • Ketchup and yellow mustard. These classic condiments never disappoint.
  • Diced white onion, dill pickle, & shredded lettuce. The quintessential burger toppings.

What’s Special About a Travis Scott Burger? 

I mean, just look at it! This beautiful monstrosity is undeniably delicious.

A Quarter Pounder alone is already awesome, but when given the Travis Scott treatment, it becomes epic.

With the Travis Scott burger, you don’t just get a quarter-pound worth of beef patty. You also get two slices of American cheese, lettuce, and bacon.

This burger proves that Travis Scott isn’t only a legendary rapper. He knows a thing or two about good food, as well.

Tips for the Best Burger 

Want to make your Travis Scott burger even more delicious? Utilize some of these tips:

  • Use high-quality beef. The patty is the star of the burger, after all! I like ground chuck that’s 80 to 85 percent lean. It yields the perfect balance of richness and flavor. If you use leaner beef, your burger will be dry.
  • Grind your own beef. It takes more time and effort, but you’re guaranteed quality. Ground meats from supermarkets are cheaper, but there’s no telling what other types or cuts of meat go in there!
  • Don’t over-work the meat. Over-mixing causes the juices in the meat to ooze out, resulting in a dry patty. Just gently form it into a patty and season the edges.
  • Don’t over-work the meat – part 2. Once the patty is cooking, leave it alone. Don’t press it. Don’t flip it again and again. Just leave it. The more you press and flip, the tougher the patty gets.
  • Make slightly oversized patties. Form the patty about an inch wider than the buns. It will shrink as it cooks, giving you a perfect bun-to-patty proportion.
  • Take steps to avoid bloating. Make an indent at the center of the patty with your thumb. The heat sends the juices of the meat towards the center, which results in a swollen patty. Making a dent solves the problem.
  • Let the patty rest. Give the patty 5 minutes to rest to let the juices redistribute throughout. Maximum burger juiciness guaranteed! 
  • Microwave it! This one sounds crazy, but it works! To get that steamed, fast food effect, heat the whole burger in the microwave for 30 seconds. It’ll come out nice and steamy.
  • Add mayo. For extra moist burgers, spread mayo on the bottom bun.

Prep time


Cooking time





Whether you’re a fan of the famed rapper or just want an extra special burger, the Travis Scott burger is a must-try. It’s thick, juicy, and is guaranteed to satisfy!


  • softened butter, for toasting the bun

  • 1 sesame seed burger bun

  • 1 pinch garlic salt

  • 2 slices American cheese, divided

  • 2 slices thick-cut applewood smoked bacon

  • 1/4 pound ground beef

  • salt and pepper, to taste

  • shredded lettuce

  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard

  • 1 tablespoon diced white onion

  • 3-4 ripple-cut dill pickle slices


  • Spread the softened butter onto the bottom and top buns and season with garlic salt. Toast the buns on a frying pan or skillet. Toast them butter side down over medium heat until lightly golden. Place one slice of American cheese over the bottom bun to melt. Set aside.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the cooked bacon onto a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess grease.
  • As the bacon is cooking, shape the ground beef into a round and then flatten, careful not to overwork the meat. Sprinkle the top heavily with salt and pepper.
  • After cooking the bacon, place the patty into the pan, seasoned side down. Season the other side and cook over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • At the last minute of cooking, add the remaining slice of American cheese to melt it. Transfer the patty onto a serving plate and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • To assemble, place the bottom bun on a plate. Top it with the patty, followed by the bacon and lettuce. Spread the top bun with ketchup and yellow mustard. Stick the onions and pickles into the condiments. Close the burger and enjoy!


  • Chill. Refrigerate the patty for 10 minutes before you cook to seal in the juices.
  • Use a meat thermometer. It’s the only way to get accurate results. The reading should be at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit to be safe for eating.
  • Vary the bun. The classic sesame is always a good idea. However, you can also substitute potato buns, English muffins, brioche buns, or pretzel buns!
