Meatlover's Burger

Hi, I am Lexi and I am a native of Philadelphia. I just recently moved to NC after completing my degree in Culinary Arts. I love to eat and create new and exciting treats for my friends and family. I have seen this contest aired on Food Network, and I knew that I may just have a shot... So please sit back and enjoy the ride... Thank you. Lexi

Every piece of meat that's in this burger, I adore... I eat a meatlover's pizza from pizza hut, so let just make it a burger... This burger was inspired one day when i just wanted something good and gooey to eat. It's nothing exotic, but a wonderful treat when you wanna relax. Have fun with this one!!!
