  • According to Wendy's calculations, the Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger calories come in at 680.[4] You can lighten the calorie count by omitting the cheese or using a lowfat version, replacing the bacon with turkey bacon, and swapping the ground chuck for extra lean beef.
  • To ensure that your burger patty cooks evenly, try broiling it rather than frying it in a pan or grilling it.[3]

How to Shape a Burger Patty

Tips for shaping burger patties can help you avoid cooking a burger that bulges in the middle or shrinks during the cooking process. After you shape the patty, use your thumb to press an indent into the center of the patty. This depression keeps the burger from swelling up as it cooks.[5]
