> Guacamole Burgers
Guacamole Burgers are a family favorite! Easy griddled (or grilled) burgers are piled high with an easy guacamole and served with raw veggies and grapes. It’s a satisfying and colorful meal!
These guacamole burgers are so rich and satisfying, that you don’t need much when it comes to side dishes. You could certainly roast some sweet potatoes or whip up a coleslaw, or keep it simple with some fresh veggies and healthy greek yogurt veggie dip (takes less than 5 minutes!). I’m telling you, the burger will steal the show so the sides aren’t as important.
- 2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 1/4 tsp. salt, divided
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 large avocado
- 1/4 red onion
- 6 buns
- 6 slices cheese
- baby carrots
- 1 red or yellow pepper
- 1 small cucumber
- veggie dip
- Prepare ingredients:
Make dip if making it from scratch.
Wash and slice pepper and cucumber.
Thinly slice red onion.
Mash avocado with 1 Tbsp. lemon juice and 1/4 tsp. salt.
- Divide meat into 5-6 patties and lightly form into a disc shape while rotating in your hands. You don’t want to overwork the meat, so be gentle with it! When the burger is about 1 inch thick, create an indent in the middle so the burger doesn’t puff up too much while cooking. Set aside on a platter.
- Heat a large pan (cast iron if you have it) over medium-high heat. Add butter to the pan and when the butter is hot, season burgers with 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper on both sides and place into pan with a little room between burgers. (Work in batches if you need to.) Cook for 3-5 minutes and flip over, add a slice of cheese, and cook for another 3-5 minutes. (General rule of thumb is: 6 minutes for a medium rare burger, 10 minutes for well done.)
- While burgers cook, toast buns under broiler for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
- Top burgers with guacamole and red onion slices. Serve with veggies, dip, and grapes.
