Ingredients

  • 2 Lbs Ground Chuck Beef 80% lean / 20% fat
  • 4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • 4 Slices Swiss or Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 4 Hamburger Buns

Instructions

  1. Cut avocados in half and remove seed. Peel and cut into slices.

  2. Cut tomatoes into slices.

  3. Get your grill/pan/etc hot.

  4. Salt & pepper the ground beef and then divide into 8oz (1/2 lb) portions (or you can use smaller 6oz portions). Flatten into patties that are about 1/2 inch larger than the buns.

  5. Put a thumbprint in the middle of the patty so it doesn’t puff up when cooking.

  6. Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.

  7. Flip burgers and add cheese after a couple minutes. Put the buns face down on the grill. Cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.

  8. Stack up the ingredients and enjoy!
