“We’ve been making these refreshing burgers for years,” Jill Christopher explains from Grants Pass, Oregon. “Served on onion rolls with cream cheese and avocado on top, they’re a nice change from the regular cheeseburger. Everybody asks for them when we barbecue.”

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 4 onion rolls, split and toasted
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into four patties.
  2. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  3. Spread cream cheese over cut side of roll tops. Place burgers, onion and avocado on roll bottoms; replace tops.
