Garlic guacamole burgers

Sooo ... tonight's dinner totally made up for last night's flop. I forgot how many mushrooms I needed this week when I was at the store, so we skipped the mushrooms on the burgers and added caramelized onions instead. If you like mushrooms, you can use them in place of or in addition to the onions, but you will need to start the mushrooms cooking before the burgers as they take longer to cook.

I love this dinner and forget in between times how good it is. Not to pat myself on the back or anything.

This sounds complicated, but it's really not.

2 Tbs olive oil
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1 pound ground beef
1-1/2 tsp seasoning salt of your choice
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried parsley

2 Tbs olive oil
1 yellow onion, sliced
fresh ground pepper

2 avocados
dash of each to taste: garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, lemon juice, lime juice, and tobasco sauce

Light mayonnaise
8 french steak rolls

In large skillet, heat olive oil over medium low heat and saute garlic for just a couple of minutes. take just the garlic out of the pan and put in medium mixing bowl with meat, seasoning salt, parsley, pepper, and sauteed garlic. Mix well. Make 8 patties about the same size and cook in the garlic oil over medium high heat until done, flipping only once.

While they are cooking: Slice onion. Heat olive oil in medium skillet over medium heat and add onion and ground pepper. Cook just until browned.

While both of the above are cooking: Make your guacamole. Mash avocados with the other ingredients and adjust to your taste.

Slice your rolls in half.

On the bottom bun, spread a little light mayo and add a spoonful of onions (I didn't measure this, just adjusted based on who would be eating which burger). Put burger directly on the onions. On the top bun, spread about 1 Tbs of guacamole. Put the top bun on top of the burger ... and moan with delight.


So Dawn, you don't necessarily need to come over for dinner ... you can do this yourself! hehehe.
