KNOXVILLE, TN - Bush Brothers & Co.'s Best's new plant and beef-based Bush's Best Blended Burger is available exclusively for foodservice operations and looks, tastes and cooks like an all-beef burger, but has less fat and fewer calories.

Beans and mushrooms replace 40% of the beef content; the Blended Burger has just four ingredients -- beef, Bush's Best Great Northern Beans, mushrooms and salt.

Pre-formed, frozen 4 oz. raw patties make it easy for foodservice operators to provide a gluten-, allergen-, dairy- and soy-free alternative to all-beef burgers.

Foodservice operators can use the Bush's Best Blended Burger in a classic burger application or as the foundation for more unique menuing ideas suggested by its maker. Bibb lettuce takes the place of a traditional bun in the bunless Greek burger, a gluten-free option featuring a Blended Burger topped with tomato, red onion, yellow bell pepper and red pepper hummus and feta cheese. Or, Bush Brothers suggests, operators try the pimento cheeseburger, featuring a Blended Burger with red cabbage vinegar slaw, banana peppers and pimento cheese, on a Hawaiian bun.

Bush Brothers & Co. is a fourth-generation, family-owned manufacturer of beans for the foodservice and retail food industries. Founded in 1908 as a canning facility for locally grown produce in the east Tennessee area, it has grown into the leading national brand of Baked Beans and other bean products under the Bush's Best brand.
