This burger was inspired by the burger my bf ordered (and I was soooo tempted to) at Nick’s Laguna Beach. I thought it was so inventive to put a burger on an English muffin! Although their English muffin was homemade, this one really hit the spot in my opinion.

English Muffin Burgers
Makes 4
1 lb of ground beef
4 English muffins
4 slices of
1 hass avocado
2 romaine leaves
2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce (I used Carolina’s Gold BBQ sauce from Trader Joes)

  1. Divide the meat into 4 sections. Form patties and season.
  2. Over medium heat, cook the burger patties until desired done-ness is achieved. Top each burger with a slice of cheddar cheese.
  3. Toast the English muffin “buns.”
  4. Spread 1/2 Tbsp. of barbecue sauce on the top side of each of the English muffins.
  5. Cut the romaine leaves in half, and the avocado into fourths (then slice).
  6. On the bottom English muffin, layer the lettuce, burger patty with cheese, and avocado.
  7. Top with BBQ sauced English muffin.

These Cajun fries were inspired by the fries they apparently have at Five Guys. I wouldn’t know, but it was put in as a request by my bf for “a healthy version of Five Guys fries.”
