Gouda Bacon Burgers with Avocado

Jon doesn’t usually come up with recipes from scratch. Many of the dishes we enjoy are adaptations of other recipes he finds online. But today, this one is all his! And oh my it’s a good one. He said this recipe came to him while grocery shopping today. If my stomach had had more room, I would have devoured another one of these. The combination of the lean beef and the smoked bacon with the tangy dressing, crunchy onions and smooth avocado is simply heavenly. Stop whatever you are doing right now and make these…. okay, plan to make them this evening, or this weekend, whenever.


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/4 lb smoked bacon, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 2 tsp. Paprika Smoked Sweet
  • 1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • Sliced Gouda
  • Blue cheese dressing
  • French fried onions
  • Sliced avocado
  • Whole wheat buns


Combine ground beef, bacon, red onion, paprika, oregano and black pepper in a large bowl. Form patties. Grill to desired temperature (for us that’s medium rare), melt gouda on top, place on wheat bun, top with blue cheese dressing, french fried onions, and avocado. For extra taste, add more black pepper and a pinch of salt.
