Very tasty! I added a half pack of Lipton's Onion Soup mix for a bit more flavor. Delish!!!!! Simple and easy dinner.

This is the most amazing recipe for my family. Between work and jusggling a preschooler it can be tough to compete with fast food and expensive take out. I love just putting together this recipe for burgers any night of the week. These amazing burgers can be paired with and side such as salad or veggies or fries or and amazing sweet treat at the end. The possibilities are endless. I like to make the burgers with different breads and buns and even no bun at all which is the way ny three year old enjoys them the most.

Very satisfying for two hungry adults. Fresh take on a well loved classic burger. Quick prep time. We also toasted the buns. Delicious for lunch or dinner. We served it with a side of fresh herbs and a slice of lemon.

My daughter and I love food that can be easily prepared and fun too make together. Unfortunately we don't have an outside grill, but we make the best of it when making burgers. This recipe is fun, easy to make, and not bad on the on the pocket as many of the ingredients are usually on sale. I like the spin of adding avocado, which is a favorite summer vegetable...
