We are now into the Summer grilling months.  One category of foods I have not entered were Hamburgers. I figured that everyone knows how to make burgers. I came across a couple of different hamburgers from Marcelle Beinvenu. So this week, I will feature two of them here.

1 pound lean Ground Beef

1 pound lean Ground Lamb

1/2 pound Ground Veal

2 tablespoons Soy Sauce

Salt & Black Pepper to taste

2 medium-size, ripe Haas Avocados, peeled, pitted and mashed

1 tablespoon fresh Lime Juice

1 tablespoon finely chopped Cilantro

Hot Sauce to taste

4 to 6 Toasted Buns

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground meats, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into patties. Grill (or broil) for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until all the pink disappears.

In a small bowl, combine the avocados, lime juice, cilantro and hot sauce, and season well with salt and pepper. Mix well.

Spread the avocado mixture on the buns and place a hamburger patty on top. Dress with grilled onions, tomatoes, herbs or lettuce.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
