Anyone who's been paying attention around these parts probably already knows how we at F&W feel about Shake Shack sandwiches. (For those who haven't: We feel good about them. Very good.) So it should come as no surprise to know how excited we were to hear about this summer's new pop-up burger: The Bacon CheddarShack burger, which hits all U.S. locations—barring JFK Airport, stadiums and ballparks—on June 3.
The burger will feature all natural Angus beef, double-smoked Niman Ranch bacon, and a cheese sauce made with both a 3-year aged Wisconsin cheddar and American cheese.

"We wanted to bring a sharp, punchy note to the sauce while also keeping that creamy richness," said Mark Rosati, Shake Shack's culinary director, in an interview with F&W. "Cheddar has that sharpness and richness, and the 3-year aged Wisconsin has a lot of power, but the American cheese gives it that creaminess."
