Woohoo! Happy Memorial Day weekend! It’s the first official “holiday” summer party of the year! (happy dance)

Which means pool party, living in your swim suit all day, Hamburgers, Grilled Corn, endless Cocktails, and finishing the night off with S’mores and fireworks! Or at least that’s how we do it here in Texas!

Any excuse to use fireworks!

On a side note, did you know that May is National Burger Month!?

I totally didn’t know that until recently! So of course I HAD to make sure I gave ya’ll at least one burger recipe before the month is up. The timing couldn’t be more perfect considering this weekend you’ll be grilling, and if you’re not you will be now after seeing this Show Stopper of a burger!

When it comes to burgers the one non-negotiable element is Avocado!

I really wanted to make something that was different than most burgers I make but still healthy… or as healthy as a burger can be. 🙂

This Smoky Avocado Burger is rubbed down with a smoky spice blend, charred on the grill, and topped with AVOCADO (duh) and a sweet Pineapple Pepper Relish that you’ll want to hoard all to yourself!

The flavor combinations bursting from this burger are mind blowing! It is definitely unlike any burger you’ve ever had!

It’s WAY BETTER!

If the pictures and description haven’t convinced you to give this burger a try … I don’t know what will. All I can say is, your burger life will be changed forever after indulging

Now, just to make sure you have options, last year I did a week’s worth of burger recipes –> BBQ Chicken Burger, Southwestern Turkey Burger, and an Italian Cheeseburger with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Basil Aioli (that one is my favorite) so you have NO excuse!

Bon Appetit my friends and Happy Grilling!

  1. The pineapples and avocado look S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G in this photo! I would substitute the beef for a salmon patty or veggie patty but I bet this will taste amazing!

    Holy cow! Made these tonight for dinner and everyone loved them! It’s not easy to find a recipe that pleases the picky eaters at my house but these burgers with all the different toppings were fantastic and won everyone over! Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. well the ones in the photo are alexia fries because I was lazy but i do have a recipe for crispy sweet potato fries on my site. just search sweet potato fries, it comes with a chipotle aioli YUM

    These burgers looked amazing, but I was disappointed in the taste. I followed the recipe to a “T”, but the amount of lime juice was so strong in the avocado and pineapple mixture that it just took over as far as my taste went. Also, I don’t know how the prep time was only 10 mins. It took me a solid half hour to 40 mins to prep everything…shoot just the peppers themselves had to be cooked for 6 to 9 mins. =(

    1. Oh I’m sorry to hear that Shar! If you make it again then definitely decrease the lime juice so it suits your taste better. As far as prep time, I actually included the cooking pepper time in the cooking time not the prep time. Hope things go better for you next time should you choose to make this again. The flavors together really are delicious!
