Hamburger's Zinfandill Burger

This burger is one of several that I make. This burger is paired with the bottle of Zinfandel used to make this burger. It is a different type of burger with out the standard toppings of Tomato, Lettuce,and condiments. Having the last name that I do, means I have to know how to make a better burger. It is a unique fusion of flavors, herbs, dry cheeses, and a well balanced zinfandel. This is an easy to make burger with three seperate parts the topping, and the meat, and the glaze. This burger is served on your favorite choice of bun. I like it on an Onion Roll, or Potatoe Bun with Sesame Seed. To make lower fat, use 90/10 beef and fat free feta, reduced fat mozzarella.
