LA Burger


I came across this burger in Food Network’s magazine and just had to make it. For those of you that don’t subscribe to Food Network’s magazine, I suggest you do – everything I’ve made from there has been absolutely fabulous.

LA Burger

serves 4

4 hamburger buns

4 slices extra sharp cheddar cheese
2 Haas avocadoes, chopped

1 lime, juiced
1/2 small onion, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
Ketchup or tomato slices

  1. Grill the burgers to your liking and melt the cheddar on top.
  2. To prepare the guacamole topping: combine the avocados, jalapeno, lime juice, onion, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mash until well mixed.
  3. To assemble the burger: place 1 hamburger patty with cheese onto the bottom bun. Top with ketchup (or a tomato slice), guacamole, and watercress. Place on top bun and enjoy!
