Burger Patty

36 ounces ground beef (85 percent ground beef)

2 teaspoons hot sauce

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon chili powder

salt (heavy dash per burger)

pepper (light dash per burger)

Avocado Lime Sauce

2 avocados (ripe)

1 lime, juice of

olive oil, drizzle

salt, dash

The Burger

6 english muffins

6 slices pepper jack cheese

6 eggs arugula, handful per burger


1Set out ground beef about an hour before you begin cooking to rest at room temperature.

2Combine ground beef in large bowl with hot sauce, cumin, dried oregano, paprika, chili powder, and pepper.

3Mix with hands and then form into patties that are about one-inch thick. This will create six 6 oz. burgers.

4Prepare a large grill pan skillet by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Heat on medium-high heat and add each patty. Generously apply a dash of salt, evenly to each burger.

5Cook the burgers on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side, or until an internal temperature of 150 degrees reached. Set burgers aside on a paper-towel lined plate (to make a little less greasy). While still warm, place a slice of pepper jack cheese on each burger until melted.

6Mash two ripe avocados in medium sized bowl until smooth consistency (similar to guacamole).

7Juice one lime and add juice to bowl. Splash in a drizzle of olive oil and dash salt. Combine all together.

8Toast 6 English muffins in toaster or oven. While toasting, fry your eggs at medium-high heat in the same pan you used for the burgers.

9Place spoonful of avocado lime sauce on bottom layer of muffin.

10Continue to build the burger by adding the pepper jacked patty, fried egg, handful of arugula.

Additional Notes

I made the burgers thicker (around one inch) since I intended to cut each in half to make shareable for brunch. If spice isn't your thing, feel free to use any other desired choice of cheese. Hack: For staying together and presentation, stick one of those Bloody Mary/sandwich skewers in the burgers.
