Bacon lettuce & tomatoes are legendary when it comes to combinations in the foodie world, so let us take it a step further. Have you ever had a BLT burger before with avocados? Now is your chance to try the BLT Avocado Bacon Burger.

Bacon Lettuce & Tomatoes

Here is some transparency. I love tomatoes, but I hate eating raw tomatoes. On the contrary, there are a few exceptions.

I love some guacamole with some diced-up raw tomatoes. Also, diced-up raw tomatoes are good with some Italian bread and mozzarella.

Furthermore, we can’t forget the goodness that comes with Rotel dip, and yes, this has diced-up raw tomatoes in it.

The taste of raw tomatoes can be a bit overwhelming, which would explain why the dishes I like with raw tomatoes have them diced up.

On the flip side, this BLT burger does not have diced-up tomatoes, but with everything else that the burger has going on, everything is still balanced.

Between this and a classic American Burger are the only times I am cool with tomatoes on my burger.

So, if you see me eating a BLT Avocado Bacon burger, just know that I am happy because this is not your average bacon lettuce & tomatoes.

The Bacon And Avocado Fusion Danced On The BLT Burger

This recipe has a lot of bacon in it. Not only is there bacon in the burger, but it also has bacon within the sauce that is put on the BLT burger.

This is what turns the BLT burger into a BLT Avocado Bacon burger.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but avocados and bacon have a taste that is made for each other.

The two flavors mesh so well, and I think the saltiness of bacon balances everything out because the Lord knows avocados can do with some salt.

Regardless of how to explain it, just know that these essential ingredients led to the creation of the avocado bacon sauce recipe.

How Do You Pick An Avocado?

Use the avocados that are soft but still have a firmness to them. You want the avocado to be ripe, but not too ripe to where the avocado is starting to spoil.

These avocados are perfect with bacon lettuce & tomatoes

How Ripe Should Avocado Be?

The avocado should be ripe enough that you can easily scoop it out of the skin with a spoon.

If you can’t do that, then the avocado isn’t ripe enough. On the flip side, the avocado will still be bright green.

If the avocado is turning brown or the avocado feels extremely soft, then you need to use them immediately.

Making The BLT Avocado Bacon Burger Recipe

Serving Size: 1

Bacon Lettuce & Tomatoes Burger:

  • 1/4 tsp Salt (1/8 tsp per patty)
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper (1/4 tsp per patty)
  • 4 oz Ground Beef  (2 oz per patty)
  • 4 Slices Tomatoes
  • 2 Pieces Lettuce
  • 4 Pieces Bacon
  • 2 Slices Cheddar Cheese

Avocado Bacon Sauce:

  • 6 oz Avocado
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Diced
  • 1 oz Onions, Diced
  • 4 pieces Cooked Bacon
  • 1 tbsp Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Lime Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

 Equipment:

  • Skillet
  • Lid
  • Spatula
  • Stove Top
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Food Processor

Cooking The Bacon

Heat up the skillet to medium heat for a few minutes. Once the skillet heats up, place the bacon slices in the skillet and cook them for a total of 12 minutes.

Make sure that you flip the bacon over after the first 6 minutes.

Cooking The Beef

Season the ground beef, then form your beef patties, then put them in the skillet after removing the bacon.

Cook the patties for 6 minutes. After 6 minutes, flip the patties over and cook for another 6 minutes.

In the remaining 2 minutes, add the sliced cheddar cheese. To ensure that the cheese on top of the patties melt, put some grease from the burger on top of the cheese.

Another option is that you can put the lid on top of the skillet.

Preparing Vegetables Of The Bacon Lettuce & Tomatoes

Grab your knife and slice up your vegetables.

Using The Food Processor

Out of the 8 pieces of bacon, you will put 4 of those pieces into the food processor, along with most of the remaining grease. Leave a little of the grease for when you are toasting your buns.

Next, place the rest of the avocado bacon sauce ingredients into the food processor. You will run the food processor until everything is completely blended. This should only take a few minutes at most.

Put The Avocado Bacon Sauce To The Side

Remove the aioli from the food processor, and put it to the side for the burger. Unless you want to eat more avocado bacon sauce than the burger, you will not use all the sauce.

The sauce is best stored in a mason jar.

Toasting The Buns

Remove the beef patties from the skillet, and replace them with the hamburger buns.

Make sure there is not a lot of grease in the skillet. This will help prevent the buns from getting soggy.

Have the flat side of the buns on the surface of the skillet, and cook the buns for 1 minute, or until desired crispiness.

Assemble The Burger

Once the bun is all nice and toasty, assemble the burger, then dig in.
