California Burgers from Marcelle Bienvenu

Updated: Mar 23, 2021

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!!!
