Any burger can benefit from a big 'ol slice of smoked sausage. Get meaty!

We’re crazy-excited about Shake Shack’s juicy new cookbook, out just in time for National Burger Day and Food Republic’s own Burger Week. We’ve waited in the lines, tried everything on the menu and dutifully (and proudly) touted the perfection of Shake Shack’s simple fare to out-of-state family and friends. And now, we can all recreate these magnificent patties at home, like the Lockhart Link Burger.

This burger was created for the opening of our first Austin Shack to celebrate everything that’s great about Texas barbecue, especially the smoked jalapeño cheese sausage made by Kreuz Market in Lockhart, Texas, an hour south. You can order the very same sausage at or use your favorite smoked sausage links.
