Paradise Found Avocado BBQ Burger

The name "Paradise Found" came from the name that we chose to christen our boathouse!! We feel that we are very lucky to truly live in paradise! We enjoy grilling and I hope you enjoy this burger.


Paradise Found Avocado BBQ Burger
(Burger ingredients)
2 lb ground chuck
1 T minced onion
1/4 t salt
1 T BBQ seasoning
Mix and set aside (makes 6 Burgers)
(Avocado BBQ Sauce ingredients)
3/4 c Sutter Home White Zin
2 T butter
1/4 c brown sugar
3 T ketchup
2 T flour
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t chili powder
1/2 ripe avocado mashed
(Burger stuffing ingredients)
1/2 c shredded crab meat
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz. Velveeta cheese
Large Kaiser Onion Buns


Set cheeses out to soften before you are ready to start. When they are softened mix both cheeses and crab meat together in a bowl and then set back in refridgerator until you are ready to start grilling. Mix ground chuck, minced onion, salt and BBQ seasoning together and put in refridgerator to chill. Heat grill to medium flame. BBQ sauce should be started first. Bring wine, brown sugar, ketchup and butter to a boil (in an old sauce pot as the fire tends to blacken the pot). Stir in flour until smooth and add the remaining ingredients, stirring often. Simmer to desired consistency. Patty burgers and make hole in center and stuff with cheese and crabmeat mixture, Re-patty and Grill burgers approx 20-25 minutes turning occasionally until done.


Open a Kaiser Onion Bun and top with burger, Avocado BBQ sauce and a big slab of Tomato if desired. Top with top side of Kaiser bun and enjoy!! The taste is a great burger -- and if you close your eyes you get just a hint of the taste of the islands!!
