The Spinach Ravioli Burger

I saw the ad for the 50,000 burger and thought ok how many different burgers can someone actually come up with. I then began thinking what would I come up with and bang it hit me. My family ever since I can remember every holiday would fight over how many raviolis we each ate, they were a hot commodity. And even to this day we "count" to check and see it anyone has eaten more than all the rest of us. Even the family members who are married into the family have come to love and do the same. (My 88 year old grandmas recipe) We enjoy and make them only once a year, so I thought why not adapt that recipe that taste into a burger.
