The Thing!

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kaccy G.

This is the ultimate cheeseburger. The guys would order when they were REAL HUNGRY! It is also from the "Sandhills Lunchbox" Cafe. I waitressed there when I was growing up. We were tired of saying Double meat, double cheese bacon, jalpeno, cheeseburger and the guys couldn't remember it anyway so it was labeled the thing. It is very good.
