Bacon Burger

Directions

Mix the seasoning ingredients together and set aside.

Mash together the roasted garlic, mayonaise, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before using, to allow flavors to blend together

Break apart the raw ground beef and add minced bacon and seasoning blend. Divide into 6 balls of the same size. Using your hand, flatten each into a pattie and, using your thumb, press in the center of each pattie. Cover and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes.

Heat your grill, to about 350°F. Place burger patties on grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or when color change happens about 3/4 way up the side of the burger. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until desired.

Spread garlic mash onto buns and add burger, cheese, bacon, lettuce, and avocado.
