Easy Bacon Avocado Burger on the Grill:

We love grilling out burgers once the warmer weather hits. But the toppings is what makes a burger so flavorful. The creamy avocado and crispy bacon takes the simple burger to the ultimate burger.

The ground beef is separated into hamburger patties and then grilled to perfection. Add your favorite toppings with the slice avocado and bacon for a simple burger recipe.

This is the perfect burger to cook this summer at your next BBQ. Add your favorite potato salad and chips for a complete meal idea.

Ingredients needed - beef, oil, salt, pepper, avocados, lettuce, onion, tomatoes, buns

Ingredients: 

  • Lean Ground Beef
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Bacon 
  • Ripe Fresh Avocados (sliced) 
  • Lettuce Leaves 
  • Onion (sliced) 
  • Tomatoes (sliced) 
  • Hamburger Buns

How to Make Grilled Bacon Avocado Burger: 

  • Step 1 – Divide the ground beef into 6 even balls (approximately ⅓ lb each). Then form the balls into patties that are approximately 4 inches wide and 1 inch thick.  Place the patties in the refrigerator (covered in plastic wrap) while you preheat the grill.  
  • Step 2 – Preheat the Grill over medium high heat (approximately 450-500 degrees F). Rub oil on the grill grates to prevent the patties from sticking to the grill. 
  • Step 3 – Prepare the bacon and other toppings while the grill preheats.  
  • Step 4 – Place the patties on the grill over direct heat.  Cook for 4-8 minutes (flipping the patties halfway through the cook time) depending on how you like your burger cooked (see notes).
