My Fatty Patty

It was SuperBowl XLV weekend and I was excited for my Packers team. I wanted this to be the best superbowl ever...I'm talking about food. I came up with this hamburger 3 days before the game and I just wanted it full of flavor. This burger is now going to be my family's called a fatty patty but it's actually pretty healthy. Now...I'm a huge fan of messy, sloppy food so I purposely made my burger sloppy. It's just something about a burger that is dripping with grease and messy that makes it so good.

Pears, peeled and halved
Red and green peppers
Onion, sliced in rounds
Tomatoes, sliced
Swiss cheese

1 Avocado, peeled and halved
3 Tbsp. Miracle Whip
1 tsp. Lime juice
1/8 tsp. of Salt and pepper
Cilantro, chopped
Sriracha Sauce

2 lbs. Ground beef
Mozzarella cheese, diced
2 tsp. Oregano
2 tsp. Thyme
Cilantro, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 Egg


***I didn't measure out the ingredients so the measurements aren't exact...I just eye balled everything. Just taste as you go.***

Prepare the grill. Place onion rings and pears on grill until carmalized. Place bacon on grill until cooked. Place red and green peppers on grill until skins are charred. Place them in a bowl and cover with siran wrap (this steams the peppers), then peel away charred skins and seeds. Cut into strips.

In bowl, mix patty ingredients all together, except cheese. Form patties; not to fat and not to thin. Make sure to really press them together to hold their shape when grilling. Make a dent in the center and stuff with about 2-3 dices of mozzarella cheese. Grill.

In a small bowl, mashed up the avocado, lime juice, salt, and pepper together. Add miracle whip and cilantro.

In another small bowl, mix sriracha sauce and miracle whip. You can add as much siracha or as little as you like.

Butter both buns and place on grill for a nice crispy color.

Assemble: Spread sriracha sauce on bottom bread, add lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, patty, swiss cheese, pears, and bacon. Spread avocado sauce on top bun and top off burger. Enjoy.

***If you have leftovers like me...I have a recipe for that too***
