Avocado Aioli Burgers ($10 meal)

Avocado Burger 8

I think I professed my love for hamburgers in my last Favorite Things Thursday Post.

There is nothing better than a big fat juicy hamburger. A big fat juice hamburger on a toasted bun, slathered with aioli sauce, melty cheese and a creamy avocado…..oh pinch me now!

Like I said last week, I like my hamburgers with lots of coarse Kosher salt and lots and lot of freshly ground pepper. And I like them on the rare side of medium- rare! If there is juice dripping off my elbow when I am eating it, well then  I know my work as the master hamburger griller is done!

You get this delicious hamburger and a side of homemade sweet potato fries all for $10! Yup.

Sweet Potato Fries will not be as crunchy as a regular french fry. The hamburgers can also be cooked on an outdoor grill. *Price estimate does not include pantry staples you may likely already have. Prices are also adjusted for quantity; for example if a recipe calls for half an onion, we include the cost of that quantity.* Recipe Created for Sweetbay Supermarket by Leslie Green – The Hungry Housewife.
