Mango Avocado Burger


Ingredients:
1 1/2 lb ground beef*
2 tablespoons mango juice or nectar
2 tablespoons Montreal seasoning**
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 shallot, minced
1 small onion minced

to serve:
split crusty rolls
sliced mango
sliced avocado




*I use 94% lean
**a blend of coarse salt, pepper, granulated garlic, red pepper flakes and paprika

Directions:
Prepare your grill as usual-if you are using charcoal, we like to add some wood chips for added smoky flavor. Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together all of the burger ingredients by hand. Do not over work the meat. Gently form into 6 patties. Grill to your desired doneness. Place on the bottom half of the roll, top with alternating slices of mango and avocado. Top with the roll and serve.
My thoughts:
I have to say, avocado and mango slices are my favorite toppings for burgers. The avocado's creamy mildness offsets the sweet mango and both play off the smoky burger flavor. Matt likes his with a little mango ketchup, but I'm a purist.

  1. You have got to be kidding me! That looks amazing! Mango and avocado are two of my favorite foods on this earth. I never thought to put them together. Not to mention my love for a good old fashioned burger. You have outdone yourself!

  2. I have never had mango on a burger, but I can only imagine how wonderful that would be!! I love grilled pineapple on burgers, so I'm sure I would love mango!

  3. Now that is an interesting combination. Around these parts it's pimento cheese. But we're simple folk. :)
