Recipe For Guacamole Burgers

I always look for the positive in all situations, and even more so in ones that are not good. For instance, on the Friday afternoon I was supposed to cook with Jonathan Daddia, I was deserted by Robyn. Whilst waiting for her I met Hayley who sells the most wonderful Wasabi. This led to an idea and the idea led to a possibility. And if that comes to fruition, the wait will have been well worth it! In my life, there have been lots of bad moments but all in all, the scale is way up on the good side, and I suppose that is what counts. One of the up things is my blog – Dave now cooks with me and my kitchen time is spent thinking of recipes to share. Of course, some nights we have the old faithful pasta dish, but most nights we have something new and creative. These burgers came about as I did not want to serve up a plain burger patty on a roll, and I was not in the mood for meatballs. I used the lovely ingredients I found while shopping and this is what I came up with, a guacamole burger.

  1. It’s our last meal at home here in Mauritius this evening – we are eating out at friends from tomorrow evening until we leave and I made hamburger patties from the last of the mince in the freezer which Pete will braai. Sadly ours wont’ be as yummy as yours though – no lovely mushrooms, guacamole or quails eggs, instead we will add beetroot slices and onions.

  2. I love urgers, but only home made, anbd this looks wonderful. Love the idea of the quails eggs – I´d imagine they stay fresh for a week or so…although not speaking from experience as I tend to gobble them up when I find them!

  3. What an interesting recipe. I’ll wager these were delicious. It’s always nice to put a new spin on familiar food. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  4. I always enjoy reading your list of ingredients because you often use things I didn’t know existed! Like ‘1 teaspoon oak smoked red bell pepper’.

    Quails’ eggs normally have quite a long ‘sell by’ date.
