Basic Bacon Avocado Burgers

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:

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 16 strips bacon
  • 2-3 avocados
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • 8 burger buns

Toppings: Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, caramelized or raw onions, ketchup, mustard

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Sprinkle beef patties with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Drizzle with Worcestershire sauce. Flip them over and repeat on the other side.
  3. 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
