Avocado Egg Burger (Plus a Giveaway!)

By Editorial Team
11 Comments

There’s just something about an egg burger. The runny yolk and savory taste of beef together feel about as rich and decadent and satisfying as it gets. Add avocado with the typical burger fixings, and you’re looking at the king of keto burgers.

This might not become your everyday burger, but we’d call it one of those must-have burger experiences. The fresh tastes, the creamy textures, the sheer audacity of it—few burgers inspire the way this one does.

Servings: 4 burgers

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of grass-fed beef
  • 4 eggs fried in avocado oil
  • 4 firm avocados
  • 3 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 8 slices of red onion
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 3 Tbsp. Primal Kitchen® Chipotle Lime Mayo
  • 2/3 cup microgreens
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Form hamburger into 4 patties. Grill for 8-10 minutes on medium heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on finished burgers as desired.

Fry eggs on high heat for 2 minutes to get crispy edges and a soft, runny, yolk.

Peel avocado and discard pit. Cut beefsteak or vine-on tomatoes into slices. Cut red onion slices. Wash microgreens and dry.

Stack burger with bottom of avocado, then onion, tomato slice, burger, microgreens, egg, and Chipotle Lime Mayo. Then top with other avocado half. Enjoy!

  1. Looks pretty good, sounds pretty good, probably tastes pretty good
    But how on earth do go around eating it? I don’t associate burgers with cutlery to be honest

  2. Why are you presenting this without a single comment about how impossible it would be to eat? I’ve tried it a few times, and the pinterest fails for this idea abound online. I hope I’m not moderated out because I love your recipes but being realistic is appreciated too. My recommendation: use a fork. This isn’t a sandwich. But it is delicious.

    1. I was thinking one could use a dehydrator to make firm, thinly sliced avacados slices (or call em avacado fries, or whatever lol).

      Also, can squeeze it between two plates to flatten out. Also, Use extra large tooth picks to hold it together (turn it into a keto shish kabob). A few ideas come to mind ????

        1. I mean, I SEE A CHALLENGE!!!! (emotes im sending are coming out as question marks)

    2. Replace bottom “bun” with a salad, keep the rest. Rebrand as a burger salad

  3. Interesting – Mercola has what appears to be the exact same recipe/idea on his site only he does credit Paelohacks. Maybe the inclusion of a Primal Kitchen ingredient makes it a whole different entity? Either way – this looks like a fun concept—

  4. Interesting. Was wondering how you’d make avacado bread (that’s what it looks like). Now I see it’s two avacados w/ sesame seeds. Looks like something festive, good for Halloween or St Patty’s, lol. That, and delicious!

  5. This is a joke, right? Two avocado halves as your buns? Yes, it looks really cool but is without a doubt the least practical bun idea I’ve ever seen. First, that’s just TOO much avocado. Second, let me go about dislocating my jaw so I can eat this as a sandwich. Like I said, though, very colorful and a great photo.

  6. I’d REALLY appreciate the opportunity to participate in these giveaways of delicious high quality food without having to participate in social media. Please include some contests for us social media-abstainers!
