The "Wisconsin" Cheese Burger

The burger: Abe & Arthur's turned to the Midwest for inspiration — in particular, the cheese-making state of Wisconsin — and used a cheese spread rather than a cheese slice or cheese sauce. The Widmer's cheddar and brick cheese spread was accompanied by a roasted tomato, Nueske bacon, and a brioche bun with a half-sour pickle. Oh, and truffle fries!

My takeaway: Don't ever knock cheese spread on a burger 'til you've tried it. It's not runny like cheese sauce, but it's creamier and more prominent in the burger than a mere slice of cheese.
