Khing Thai Burgers!

Khing actually means garlic in Thai! This is a burger that my whole family loves! Comming from a half asian and half white background, its up to me to come up with dishes that will be enjoyed by both sides. I am a 29 year old Nursing student from Virginia. I love the medical field, but cooking has always been my passion. Any excuse I can use, just so I can be in the kitchen.
