Low-Carb Burgers with Brie and Avocado

 

These Low-Carb Burgers with Brie and Avocado are inspired by a burger I thought up and ordered at The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro in Brampton.  I was looking for a lighter burger option and opted for a 100% beef burger on a lettuce leaf and topped with some of my favourite toppings: brie, avocado, tomato and onion.  It was the best burger I have ever tasted!  Wanting to reproduce the same burger at home I created this recipe, which is very similar to the one I had.  The recipe features a thick, juicy beef burger on top of a green lettuce leaf topped with creamy avocado, melted brie, fresh tomato and red onion.  This is now my go-to burger recipe!

 

 

 

 

Tips for Making Perfect Burgers

 

  1. Use fresh, organic beef:  Fresh organic ground beef makes the most flavourful burgers, however regular beef may be substituted if desired.
  2. Do not over-mix:  When mixing the seasoning into the ground beef, do not knead the beef too much or the burgers will be dense and dry.
  3. Make an indentation:  The indentation made at the centre of each beef patty will ensure the burgers have a level height when cooked.
  4. Use high-quality mustard: Not all mustard is made alike and there is a huge difference between high-quality mustard and your average grocery store mustard.  These burgers taste best when you use high-quality mustard, which you can find at specialty stores or health food stores like Whole Foods.

 

 

Recipe Q & A

 

Q:  Can I substitute the lean ground beef for extra-lean? 

 A:  Yes you can.  The burgers will still be flavourful, however they will be slightly less juicy due to their lower fat content.

 Q:  Can I substitute the grape tomatoes for other tomato varieties? 

 A:  Yes you can, however grape tomatoes contribute a delicious sweet flavour to the burgers.

 Q:  Can I substitute the red onion for other onion varieties? 

 A:  Yes you can.  Sweet onion also goes well with these burgers.
