Grand Prize: Bacon & Date Goat Cheese Burger

This burger is a rich and decadent combination of sweet and savory in every bite. If you can't find maple bacon in your local store, you can add 1-1/2 tablespoons maple syrup to the spinach-goat cheese mixture in the food processor and use regular bacon. —Sharon Michelle Anglin, Livingston, Montana
