This is a delicious burger but I cheated I pan fried it. I would love to make this on a shovel - I love the whole concept. I used Panko crumbs and loved the fried onion flakes in the burger. Garnished with sweet onion, tomato and YES Beets. They sound weird on a burger but they are really tasty. Of course I had cheese too Thanks Alskann for another burger that pops into my favorite burgers
