Easiest Ever Guacamole Hamburgers



I made these burgers for dinner last night.  They were the easiest ever.  So easy it was like cheating.  I mean really, who doesn't want to cheat when it comes to dinner.  I know I do. I seem to never have enough time to make mouthwatering food that takes hours to prepare, so when I can make something just as delicious and only takes half an hour I'm all over it !!  These guacamole burgers hit the spot.  I love guacamole and this was a really easy way to make it quick for a weeknight meal.  I did add cheddar cheese to my burger because that's what I had, but pepper jack would kick it up a notch !! I bet taco seasoning in the burger would be great and give it a taco taste.  

Ingredients:

  • For the Hamburgers
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • lettuce leaves
  • Cheese (cheddar, pepper jack....)
  • 6 hamburger buns

  • For The Guacamole:
  • For the guacamole, combine ingredients in a medium bowl:
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 medium tomato, diced
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 small onion, diced
  • juice of 1/2 fresh lime
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation:

  1. Combine Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and ground beef. Shape into 6 patties. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare grill and cook patties to desired doneness or cook in broiler.
  3. Place hamburger patty on bun half. Top with slice of cheese, lettuce, sliced tomatoes and guacamole. Top with bun half to serve.
