The Perfect Burger

This burger however is the kind of burger that nobody would ever say no to. Not too thin, not too thick; can be grilled on the stove or on an outside grill; no eggs, breadcrumbs or weird things in it; just pure beefy goodness that makes a perfect vessel for any toppings your heart desires.
