Toasted Almond Peppercorn Currant Glaze Burger

Hi, I'm not quite sure what you are looking for in the introduction, so I will tell you a little about my self. I am a 41 year old male who has a passion for cooking just about anything, especially if its new. The build a better burger contest was a new challage for me, I took some of my favortie recipes and came up with this wonderful tasting burger. The grilling aspect really brings out all the flavors, even more so than the oven. I love to compete in anything and feel like my personality along with my cooking skills would be a good match for this contest. I hope you enjoy the burgers as much as my friends and family. I hope to see you at the contest. Sincerely, Tom.
