Avocado Stuffed Burger

Let’s see… grass fed beef and avocado together as one.  Yes, please!  I’m kind of obsessed with avocado these days.  A friend shared this recipe in one of my accountability groups and it caught my attention.  You have to try this one!  

I love that we can pretty much use our grill year round if we want to.  No snow to deal with and it has been a beautiful 60 degrees lately.  North Carolina has won my heart!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
  • 2 avocados, ripe
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped NO OIL
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt (makes it salty depending on your sun-dried tomatoes)
  • Bacon fat (Optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-medium high heat
  2. Put your ground beef in a large mixing bowl and add black pepper, 1 teaspoon of sea salt, and the zest of one lemon
  3. Mix well and then using your hands form into thin patties all the same size (you need them thin because you will be using two of them to make one patty)
  4. In another mixing bowl combine avocados, sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice, and the remaining teaspoon of sea salt.
  5. Mash the avocado and mix ingredients well to get as smooth as you like
  6. Place your avocado mixture on the bottoms of half of the burgers, ensuring you leave room to seal the burgers without it leaking out
  7. Put your other patty over the top of your mixture and pinch the edges of your burgers together to seal all the way around
  8. Now go out and grill to your liking. I normally do about 6-8 Minutes per side on my grill but yours may be different. Ensure you cook evenly on both sides of the burger or you will end up with an undercooked and an overcooked side
  9. While grilling, I drizzle my burgers with bacon grease and it adds an amazing flavor
  10. When done grilling, allow your burgers to rest for 10 minutes and then serve. You can use the rest of your avocado mixture to top your burgers with and go to town
  11. Enjoy!
