Avocado-Bacon Stuffed Burgers

2018年8月8日

After such a busy week last week and trying to get settled back into a routine, I was excited to get back in the kitchen.

For some reason, I’ve been craving avocado.  While I’d love to be eating it with a basket of chips in the form of guacamole, I also love avocado paired with burgers and a little bacon.  So, in typical NTTC fashion, I decided to experiment a little and this is what I came up with!

I know what you’re thinking… you may be questioning the avocado hitting the grill.  I’m with you.  I was worried about the same, but holy crap… I worried for nothing!  These burgers had the most amazing flavor and the bacon and avocado on the inside offered a creamy delicious surprise.

3.  Divide meat into 4 parts.  Take one section and form it into a patty (about 2 oz.)  Top burger with 1/2 of the avocado mash and 1/2 of the chopped bacon.

4.  Form another burger out of another 2 oz. section of the meat mixture.  Cover the 1st burger and avocado-bacon mixture, sealing the edges.  Note:  The avocado was bursting through my stuffed burger, but this did not in any way impact the flavor!

5.  Lightly salt and pepper the burgers on each side, and grill until done.

6.  Serve the burger on a bun smeared with 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss, tomatoes, and spinach.  Note: I also paired the burger with an amazing arugula-tomato-avocado salad tossed in Kristo’s Cranberry-Pear Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil.
