Grilled Hamburger Recipe

Here is another hamburger recipe from the Food Network magazine I tried. The burger looked really good as it was and the only change I made was using iceberg lettuce instead of watercress. I was really excited to make burgers this week because I finally got a new grill! The highlight of these burgers is the avocado relish. The avocado relish is basically a combination of avocados, jalapeño peppers, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. These burgers are great with a thick slice of tomato and for the cheese- you can either use slices of Monterey jack or cheddar. This is just another one of my great summer recipes. This will make 2 large burgers or you could get more depending on the size of your patties. Enjoy.

  • 1lb ground beef chuck
  • 1 tomato (sliced)
  • 2 slices Monterey jack or cheddar cheese
  • lettuce (torn)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • canola oil (for brushing)
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Avocado relish-
  • 2 avocados (chopped)
  • ½ of a small onion (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
  • The juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)




  1. Shape ground chuck into patties (no more than ¾” thick). Make a depression in the center of each patty with your thumb so the burgers won’t budge.
  2. Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to high heat. Brush each patty with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Place patties on the grill and grill burgers until they are fully cooked. Right before the burgers are done top each patty with a slice of cheese and allow it to melt.
  3. Remove patties from grill.
  4. To make avocado relish – in a medium bowl combine avocados, onion, jalapeño pepper, cilantro. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime onto the mixture tossing to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  5.  To assemble burgers- place a patty on the bottom of a hamburger bun. Top with a slice of tomato, lettuce and avocado relish.
  6. over with the top half of the bun.

I find if you make the hamburger patties 1 to 2 hours before you cook them and chill them in the fridge they stay together very well on the grill. Thanks Bobby Flay!
