Recipe: Mile High Burger

*Warning* Not for those afraid of heights.

Only kidding 🙂 — this stacked burger is safe for all meat-eaters. You no longer have to depend on your local burger joint when you want to chomp your teeth down on a juicy patty. If you’re feeling inspired, we recommend a side of homemade french fries (and an ice cream sundae for dessert, please).
