Big Fat Stuffed Yummy Greek Burger

Hi: This is such a yummy burger! It was an experiment that I tried once and it turned out so well and was such a hit with everyone . All I served to proclaimed, "this is a winner". When I asked what condiments would you choose to top it off with all proclaimed it needed nothing but the burger and the bun . I used fresh ingredients and quality freshly ground beef . For health reasons, I did make sure the meat was cooked well enough which is 160 degrees or higher in the center of the burger. My personal preference is no pink remaining in the beef and so this was cooked that way. I selected the name because that is exactly what the burger is, enjoy! Melinda :)
