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!
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!
- 1 1/2 lbs. Ground Beef
- 1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1 recipe Jodi’s Almost Famous Holy Guacamole
- 6 Onion Burger Buns
- 1 large ripe tomato, sliced
- 6 slices white American cheese
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.
Cheers & Hugs,
