When I was young my mother would reward me for practicing the piano. My favorite request was a trip into town,to the only gas station for miles around, and I would get my favorite food on earth; Jalapeno Poppers! This burger is inspired by my favorite childhood treat! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
