Wahlburgers Welcomes Jenny McCarthy, Burger QueenBy Scott Kearnan
November 5, 2013
It was the dream of many a teenage boy in the '90s: to share a burger with Jenny McCarthy. (Okay, that's the G-rated version.) Finally, the fantasy comes true, sort of, thanks to Wahlburgers. For its ongoing burger-of-the-month, Paul Wahlberg tapped the actress, who is currently dating his brother, actor and New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg, to create the November special. (Maybe the menu add was timed to be a birthday present, since The View co-host celebrated hers on November 1.) Though Wahlburgers once hosted a special by Rachael Ray, extending guest recipe honors to a non-chef celeb is a new approach, and McCarthy decided to mix things up. Her November burger is dubbed the "Chicago Dog," and pays tribute to her Windy City hometown with a trio of hot dog patties topped by tangy yellow mustard, chopped onion and house pickles (855-924-5246).
