My signature burger is nothing too crazy, I like a patty with fresh onion and jalapeno mixed in ona fresh sesame seed bun. Toppings would include sliced avocado, tomato, lettuce and picklewith a nice thick slice of cheddarcheese.I think we would have to call it the fergyburger!

To answer the question of my signature burgerit would probably have smooth peanut butter and crispy bacon with sauteed red onion on it served on a brioche bun. It would be called the“sweet nutty”! Don’t knock it till you try itit’s surprisingly delicious.
