Cali Burgers

Tonight we decided to stay in and make some burgers. Avocado is one of my favorite foods. It really is the most perfect food. So we topped the burgers with an avocado mixture.

1.25 pounds of ground round or sirloin (it has a little less fat than ground chuck)
2 garlic cloves, minced or passed through a garlic press
a couple splashes of worcestershire sauce
a couple splashes of beer
salt and pepper
4 slices of cheddar cheese
slices of cooked turkey or regular bacon
1 Haas avocado
1-2 Tbsp diced red onion
sprinkle of garlic powder
juice of half a lemon
dollop of sour cream
lettuce and tomato (optional)
4 hamburger buns

In a mixing bowl, add the ground beef, garlic, worcestershire sauce, beer and salt and pepper. Mix well and form into four patties. Grill the burgers on a hot grill or in a grill pan over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes per side. When the burgers are almost done, top with cheese and let melt.

Meanwhile, cut the avocadoes in half and scoop out the insides into a bowl. Mash with a fork. Add the red onion, garlic powder and lemon juice. Mix well. Add a dollop of sour cream and mix well. Making the avocado mixture is better than just slicing the avocado because experience has proven that it will just fall out.

Place the burgers on the bottom buns, top with bacon and the avocado mixture, lettuce and tomato. Place with the top bun. Enjoy!
