Start cooking

Serves: 4

1 lb. ground beef (80/20) 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. onion powder 1 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. pepper 1 egg 1 tsp. vegetable oil 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese 4 brioche buns 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, divided 1 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced 4 lettuce leaves 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced 8 slices cooked bacon
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and egg. Divide in four and shape into 1-inch patties, about as wide as the burger buns. Make a small indent with your thumb in the center of the patty.
  2. If cooking on a stove top, heat a thin layer of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottom cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add in the burger patties and sear for 3-5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
  3. If cooking on a grill, grill the burgers for 3-5 minutes on each side over direct heat or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
  4. Add a slice of cheese to each burger, cover with either a skillet or grill lid to melt the cheese, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Remove burgers and place on burger bun bottoms. Add BBQ sauce to the other half of the buns.
  6. Top with fresh avocado slices, tomato slices, lettuce, red onion and bacon.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with French fries.

Beverage Pairing: Pair with an ice-cold beer.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.

Did You Know?

It’s a good idea to brush a little oil on the cut side of a California Avocado before grilling. They are also delicious in a host of other entrée recipes, from stove top to oven-baked to multi-cooker preparation.

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
