Below the Border Burger

Salute! This burger is a great main course for a party. It is a fun spin on everybody's two food favorites: hamburgers and Mexican food! There is a surprise in the middle of the burger sure to please family and friends!


1 1/2 lb ground sirloin
1 Tbsp. garlic salt
1 Tbsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup of very thinly sliced onions
1 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresca
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup mayo
2 Tbsp. ranch dressing
6 slices Havarti cheese
6 iceberg lettuce leaves
6 slices tomato
6 onion buns


In a mixing bowl, mix sirloin, garlic salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Reserving a 1/2 pound of the meat mixture, use 1 lb of the meat mixture to form six patties with a silver dollar size divot in the middle of each patty. Divide onions and queso fresca between the six patties placing them in the divots of the meat. Using the rest of the meat, make small patties to cover the top of each divot pressing lightly to seal.

Remove avocado from shell discarding the pit. Mash avocado with mayo and ranch dressing. Set aside. Grill burgers at 325 for 8 minutes each side. Top with Havarti cheese while still hot so it will melt. Put burgers onto buns topping with lettuce and tomato. Spread avocado mixture onto underside of top bun. Enjoy!


The onion and queso fresca (if you cannot find this type of cheese you can substitute any other favorite) keep the burger very moist and adds a lot of flavor!
