Most people love a good cheeseburger, but did you know you can trim your patty in more ways than you thought possible? Why limit yourself to cheese and ketchup when you could have a flavor explosion by simply experimenting with different toppings? In this recipe, try combining the sharpness of cheese with a little bit of fruity marmalade and the crunch of cornflakes. You won’t believe how good this is until you taste it yourself!

3/4 c spinach
1/8 c red pepper
