I found a recipe last night in a food magazine and decided to try it tonight. I took the basic recipe and changed it up and it came out so amazing! I thought I'd share it with my readers!
Avocado Tomato CheeseBurger
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp westchestershire sauce
1 medium ripe avocado
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
Put all ingredients in blender and process till smooth - refrigerate till needed.
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 pound ground beef (I used black Angus ground beef - made for some awesome burgers)
Mix all ingredients together and shape into 4 patties.
In frying pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil - when hot put burgers in pan and fry 7-8 minutes on each side - till 165 degrees and juices running clear.
While burgers are frying, cut open 4 ciabatta rolls, brush with olive oil and put under the broiler till toasted.
Take each roll and put 1 tbsp of avacado mayonnaise on top and bottom of rolls. On bottom half, put several baby spinach leaves.
When burgers are done cooking, place a slice of fresh mozzarella (I use Sorrento brand - seen here because we don't have access to good Italian grocery stores up here) cover the burgers and let cheese just start to melt. Take burgers and place them on top of spinach on bottom roll. Sprinkle on some dried basil. Top with two slices of tomato and a dash of pepper. Top with top roll.
Then sit back and enjoy and savor each and every delicious bite.
This burger was just fabulous - the flavors were just so amazing together!!! This recipe is a definite keeper in our house!
If you decide to try it, let me know what you think!!
