Calories Per Serving


For the caramelized onions

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large vidalia (or sweet) onions, sliced
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar

For the guacamole

  • 2 avocadoes, mashed
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1 lime, juiced

For the BBQ mayonnaise

  • 1/2 Cup mayonnaise
  • 3 Tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons Dijon mustard

For the goat cheese-stuffed burgers

  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 Ounces goat cheese log, cut into ½-inch thick slices
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 Ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 2 Cups spring greens
  • 4 Hawaiian roll buns, toasted


For the caramelized onions

Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add olive oil and butter. When the butter has melted, add the onions and salt. Stir well to coat. Cover and let cook for 25 minutes, stirring often, until golden and soft. Stir in the sugar and cook for another 10 minutes.

For the guacamole

Mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Taste and season as required.

For the BBQ mayonnaise

Whisk all ingredients together until combined.

For the goat cheese-stuffed burgers

Place the ground beef in a large bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix gently to coat, and then divide the beef into four parts. Break each part in half and form into two patties. Place a round of goat cheese in the center of one patty and cover it with the other patty, pressing gently around the edges to seal the goat cheese in. Repeat with the remaining patties.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil and butter. Cook the burgers until your desired doneness (medium-well done will be about 4 minutes per side), and 1 minute before they are finished, place a few slices of cheddar on top.

To assemble the burgers, spread a few tablespoons of guacamole on the bottom bun, and place the burger on top. Cover with caramelized onions, BBQ mayo, and spring greens. Serve immediately.
