I love avocados!  When they are at their peak of ripeness, there is nothing more amazing with just a sprinkle of salt.

Avocado is great smeared on whole grain toast for breakfast and topped with a fried egg.  It is wonderful for lunch cut up into a fresh green salad.  It makes an amazing dip for tortilla chips.  And it is a fabulous addition to a juicy, grilled burger for a great summertime supper sandwich!

Avocado Burger

Yesterday, I made a batch of fresh guacamole from some avocados I had that were right at their peak of ripeness and decided to use it as a topping to some fresh grilled burgers for a hot summer Sunday supper.  We enjoyed the burgers with some fresh sweet corn on the cob and a tossed green salad.  It was the perfect meal to end a warm, relaxing weekend.

If the green color makes you nervous, let me tell you I have never had anyone try my guacamole that didn’t end up loving it – even the skeptics.  Hope you’ll give it a try.  Not only is it yummy, it is quite healthy!  Avocados have more potassium than bananas, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, and are packed with fiber.  Adding garlic, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime juice, make it even better!

Guacamole Burgers

Ingredients:Avocado Burger

Directions:

Prepare guacamole and set aside (covered tightly with plastic wrap to avoid air that will brown the avocados).

Mix ground beef and onion soup mix until well combined.  Form mixture into 6 large hamburger patties.  Grill burgers to medium-well (or your desired doneness).   Top with a slice of white American cheese, and allow to melt.

To assemble, place burger on bun, top with guacamole and sliced tomato.

Enjoy!

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. I like your “almost famous” 🙂 Someday it will be famous, when you open your own Bed and Breakfast 🙂 Thanks for sharing, am learning to like Avocado. I like a restaurant close by us that serves Strawberry and Spinach salad with avocado and nuts. It really is good!

  2. Your painting of avocados are perfect….just the right colors, splatters, everything! it could very well be used for a food magazine. I love guacamole, my son-in-law is Mexican-American and he leaves the pit in the guacamole, it keeps it fresh longer and odd but it looks decorative. You never hear about that and I thought I would pass it on to you. 🙂

  3. I can’t believe I lived almost the first forty years of my life without eating avocados! Now they are one of my favorite foods. I even cut them up and add them to my salads for a little extra flavor and texture. I’ve never tried them on a burger, though, so I’m going to give that a whirl. Thanks for the recipes! (I’m printing the guacamole one, too)
