In this burger, I employ my unique creation: Chipotle Bacon Maple Jam. It really does wonders to the burger, which is simultaneously sweet and spicy and a little bit smoky.
My inspiration for this burger comes from my favorite dish to eat in the fall: roasted pork with apple compote. It is a meal that celebrates harvest, my favorite time of year.
My burger recipe is a tribute to the creative and trend-setting cooks across the country who have been instrumental in reviving a culinary sense of pride in Regional American Cooking.
