Simple Guacamole

Sometimes simple is best, and when it comes to topping my burger, I want to let the avocado shine. So I go with a stripped down guacamole that brings out the flavors.

  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • Salt/pepper to taste

Mash one ripe avocado in a small dish with a fork. Add lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. 

Bacon Cheese Guacamole Burger

  • Johnsonville Bratwurst Grillers
  • Guacamole
  • Cheddar cheese (sliced)
  • Bacon (cooked)
