May 26 2012
It’s hot as sin outside, need popsicles, a slip-n-slide and a cool brewski to cool down? How about getting outside to grill my favorite burger recipe? With 97/3% lean ground beef, you can still look HOT in that bikini and grill up all summer long!
Avocado and Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers
3 pounds lean ground beef 97/3 lean beef
2 semi firm avocados
1 C Blue cheese crumbles
1 tablespoon oregano, dried or fresh, finely chopped
6 brioche hamburger buns, toasted and warmed thru on the grill
Sea salt to taste
In a large bowl, using your clean hands, combine beef, with the oregano, and seas salt, mix well
Shape beef into 6 balls. Scoop a heaping tablespoon out from center of each; reserve.
Fill each burger with 2 or 3 avocado slices, and blue cheese.
Press the reserved meat over filling, pinching to seal. Gently flatten into patties (about 5 inches in diameter). Refrigerate until the patties are all chilled.
Safely preheat your grill to medium-high. Brush your clean grill with a touch of olive oil. Grill, flipping once, about 4 minutes per side for rare or 10 minutes per side for well-done.
Toast hot-ass buns, on the grill + throw on a few slices of proscuitto on top of the burger if desired. Serve burgers on toasted buns with your favorite condiments: tomato, lettuce, pickles, mustard and a touch of balsamic vinegar is always a good choice.
