Ingredients

  • 2

    large avocados, preferably Haas, peeled and pitted

  • 1

    Tbs. fresh lime juice

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • 1 1/2

    Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 1/2

    lb. ground beef

  • 2

    oz. pepper jack cheese, grated

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 4

    hamburger buns

  • 8

    bacon slices, cooked until crispy

Directions

Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Place a la plancha cast-iron griddle on the grill to preheat. In a bowl, combine the avocados and lime juice and mash them together with a fork. Season with salt and stir in the cilantro. Set the guacamole aside. Divide the ground beef into eight 3-oz. portions and shape each into a ball. Using a stuffed burger press according to the manufacturer’s instructions, make 4 burgers, stuffing each with 1/2 oz. cheese. Season the burgers with salt and pepper. Place the burgers on the la plancha and cook, turning once, about 4 minutes per side. Place the burgers on the buns and top each with 1/4 cup guacamole and 2 bacon slices. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
