Who doesn’t love a guacamole bacon burger? I know I do! Making a Paleo version is quite simple, and – oh man – it is delicious. Depending on the type of almond flour/meal you use, your buns will likely have an almost buttery feel to them. They’re pretty hearty, as well. Hopefully, this simple, familiar meal will provide you with that sense of pre-Paleo tastiness we all need from time to time.
Filling Guacamole Bacon Burger
This guacamole bacon burger is a good snack to have when you want some greasy comfort food to satisfy your cravings.
- 2 medium avocados ripe
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- 1 ½ pound ground beef grass-fed
- 8 slices bacon nitrate-free
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch black pepper
- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- 2 medium eggs
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon honey
- Thoroughly mash your avocado with a fork until mostly smooth. Add the rest of your guacamole ingredients and mix with your fork for 1 minute.
- Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, preferably a few hours.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Add eggs to the mixing bowl and thoroughly whisk.
- Add salt, baking soda, and honey to the mixing bowl. Mix until frothy.
- Add almond flour. Mix completely.
- Grease a baking sheet.
- Divide mixture into 4 equal parts on a baking sheet, rounding them. They should be about 4- to 5-inch wide and about 1/2-inch thick.
- Bake for 12 minutes. Set aside to cool.
- Cook bacon to your desired crispiness. When done, place bacon on a plate with paper towels. Retain 1 tablespoon of bacon fat. Save or discard the rest.
- For the burger, form your beef into 4 equal-sized patties. Season with salt and pepper per side.
- Using your thumb, press down the burger to make an indent in the middle of the patty (this helps keep the size of the patty even through cooking).
- Cook the patties in the pan with retained bacon fat.
- Cook until your desired level of doneness – I personally cook 4-ounce patties on medium for about 4 minutes per side for well done (but not dry).
- Use a bread knife to cut the buns in half. Assemble your burgers. Serve and enjoy!
