In a large bowl, mix together the pork, garlic, hot pepper sauce and black pepper. Shape pork mixture into a flat round pattie that measures about 11- inches in diameter - or one inch larger than your bread.

Carefully place giant pattie over hot grill (place burger on a flat baking sheet for transferring to the grill) and grill for about 10 minutes.

Turn the pattie over by sliding it onto the baking sheet. Grab a second baking sheet and sandwich the pattie between both baking sheets and turn over to invert. Slide the pattie onto the grill so the uncooked side is facing downward and continue to grill for 10 minutes longer.

In the meantime, heat oil in medium saute pan. Add onions and saute until tender, about 4 minutes.

Place the bottom half of the bread on a serving platter (cut side up). Spread lettuce to cover the bread. Top with the cooked burger. Spread sauteed onions over burger and top with with the remaining bread.

Spear each olive with a toothpick. Evenly insert toothpicks into the sandwich from the the top of the bread through to the bottom (in a circular formation) so the pierced olive is resting on the top of the bread and the toothpicks are positioned to hold each wedge together when sliced.

Slice into 8 wedges (in between toothpicks) and serve.
