Cheeseburger with Guacamole, a Fried Egg and Cilantro Mayo

This burger was more of my hubby’s idea. He doesn’t cook, but he can come up with some really tasty ideas for a meal. It’s a nice, juicy cheeseburger with guacamole, topped with a fried egg and a cilantro mayo. This is definitely a two napkin burger.

Here’s what you need:

Cilantro Mayo:

This was for 3 serving

*1/3 C. mayonnaise

*1 tsp lime juice

*1/2 tsp. hot sauce; or more to taste

*1 tsp. garlic powder; or to taste

*1/4 tsp. smoked paprika

*1/8 tsp white pepper

*1 1/2 TBS chopped cilantro


*1 large avocado or 2 small ones

*juice of 1 lime

*onion powder; to taste

*garlic powder; to taste

*1/2 tsp salt; or more to taste

*chopped cilantro (or dried); to taste

*1/2 small red onion, diced

*1 Roma tomato; chopped

For the Burger

*1 LB ground beef (preferably 80% lean and 20% fat ratio)

*1 TBS Worcestershire sauce ; or to taste

*2 tsp. garlic powder; or to taste

*2 tsp. onion powder; or to taste

*1 tsp. salt; or more to taste

*sliced cheese; I used Colby Monterey Jack blend

*1 egg per hamburger

*hamburger buns

For the cilantro mayo, make this at least 30 minutes before serving, this gives the flavors to come together. In a small bowl add mayo.

Then add rest of the ingredients for the cilantro mayo. Mix well.

Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

For the guacamole, follow the recipe from here: Chorizo Cheese Burger with Guacamole, then mix in the onion and the tomato.

Place a piece plastic wrap onto the guacamole and covering the bowl. This will keep it from turning brown for a short amount of time; set aside.

In a large bowl, place ground beef and add Worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powder, and salt.

lightly mix together, making sure not to over mix or beef will be tough.

Form in to patties making an indentation in the middle.

Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium high heat. When skillet is hot add the patties.

Cook for about 5 minutes or until a crust forms on the bottom. Turn over and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.

Place cheese slices over the patties and cover the skillet.

Continue cooking for about 1 minute or until cheese melts. On a side note, yes, there is one patty that is not dressed for the party….you know there is always that one person who has to be different. Gotta love them any way.

Place patties on a platter and cover loosely with foil.

In the same skillet, drain off some of the fat and turn the heat down to medium. Crack eggs into the skillet, salt and pepper the eggs to taste. The eggs will cook fast. I like mine sunny side up (yolks facing up and not turned over while cooking), but if you prefer over easy, turn them over for a few seconds then remove from the skillet.

While eggs are cooking, toast the hamburger buns.

Place patties onto the bottom buns.

Spread the guacamole on top of the patties, then top with the fried egg.

Spread on desired amount of the cilantro mayo onto the top bun.

Place on top of the patties. Serve and enjoy!
