I don’t have a burger post on here! The other night I made burgers with avocado and crispy bacon and added a side of sliced baked potatoes. Here’s the recipe:
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 16 strips bacon
- 2-3 avocados
- Worcestershire sauce
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- 8 burger buns
Toppings: Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, caramelized or raw onions, ketchup, mustard
- Grab about .25 pounds of beef and form into a large ball. Press down on a flat surface until it forms a round disk, about 3/4-inch thick. Repeat with the remaining beef to make 8 patties.
- Sprinkle beef patties with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Drizzle with Worcestershire sauce. Flip them over and repeat on the other side.
- Heat an indoor grill to high. Spray lightly with Pam. Add the patties and cook, covered, 3 minutes. Flip them over and cook an additional 6-7 minutes for medium well, or until they reach the desired temperature. I generally stay in the 140-150 range for medium.
You can bake the bacon in the oven for 15-17 minutes on a rimmed baking sheet or microwave it while the burgers cook.
Serve hamburgers with lettuce, tomato, sliced avocado and bacon!
Yields 8 burgers
