Simple Burgers with Bacon, Avocado, and Onion

Aly, my 8-year-old, came up with our dinner menu tonight. As my most reluctant eater, I was happy to see her trying SO hard to keep it paleo. We happily enjoyed a simple burger (ours adorned with bacon, grilled onion, and mashed avocado), steamed broccoli,  and...banana! Dave and I subbed some fried green tomatoes for our side. This is a super kid-friendly, super easy, and super yummy meal. Enjoy!

Serves 4.

1 pound grass-fed ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
olive oil
1 avocado, mashed
1 onion, sliced and sauteed
4-8 slices bacon, cooked until crisp
salad greens
steamed broccoli
fried green tomatoes

  1. Preheat grill to medium high.
  2. Place all burger ingredients in a medium bowl. Use your hands to thoroughly combine without compacting the meat too much.
  3. Form the burger into 4 equal-sized patties. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Drizzle both sides with olive oil.
  4. Grill for 3-5 minutes per side, or until the burgers reach your desired degree of doneness.
  5. To serve, divide salad greens evenly among 4 plates and place a burger on top of each. Top each burger with bacon, avocado, and onions. Serve with steamed broccoli and fried green tomatoes.
