I love burgers, but whenever I go to a restaurant I end up taking off the bun, adding avocado, swapping the fries for salad and then I've created a sub-par, $25-dollar burger. Forget the restaurant. Buy some ground beef (or turkey) or really any other meat or tofu you want and dress up the toppings with anything you like!
1lb grass fed ground beef
Salt & pepper to taste (burger)
Sprinkle of ginger and cayenne (optional)
Red leave lettuce, cut in half, lengthwise so you have the soft part as your "bun"
Red onion sliced thin (as much as you want!)
1/2 avocado, sliced how you like
Dab of organic butter
4 mushrooms, thinly sliced
6 chopped basil leaves
5 sprigs of cilantro
Prepping & Cooking
Preheat over to 400. Line baking pan with foil and place baking rack on top of it. Separate the meat into 4 and roll into patties. Place burgers on the pan and top with salt and pepper (and any other seasonings), flip and top other side. Put in the oven for 20-30 minutes (20 for rare and 30 for well). Flip once.
Wash and cut lettuce and set aside. Dice all your veggies and toppings and set aside. Saute mushrooms for about two minutes in a little butter and set aside. Use the mushroom broth to fry the egg - I fry on a really low heat with a top so it creates a soft yolk. Set aside. When burgers are done, place with your toppings in the lettuce wraps. Enjoy!
