    • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 6 slices sharp cheddar cheese
    • 6 soft multigrain buns, split



    1. In a small bowl, stir mayo, honey and 1½ teaspoons cayenne to combine. Set aside.
    2. Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet until fat has rendered and bacon is crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Place apples, water, 6 tablespoons syrup, and 3 teaspoons cayenne in a small saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook mixture, stirring, until apples have softened and most of the liquid has evaporated. Use your spoon to gently mash the mixture, then stir in the bacon. Keep warm
    3. Preheat a grill to medium high. In a medium bowl, mix Lick's Burger Patties 3 tablespoons syrup, salt, and pepper gently with your hands, being careful not to overmix. Divide mixture into six patties and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Top each patty with a slice of cheese immediately after cooking, and grill buns until lightly toasted. Smear a bit of mayo on each side of each bun. Top bun bottoms with a patty and some compote. Close with bun tops, and serve.
