Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 garlic, pasted or finely grated
  • 1/2 small red onion, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 large jalapeño, grated or finely chopped
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped (optional)
  • 12 slices meaty bacon
  • 1 1/4 pounds (1 package) ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • 8 slices Monterey Jack, white American or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 8 slices sourdough bread, toasted
  • 8 Romaine or leaf lettuce leaves
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, sliced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Coarsely mash avocados with lemon juice, garlic, red onion, jalapeño, salt and cilantro, if using.

Arrange bacon on a slotted broiler pan or a wire rack inserted in baking sheet. Bake to crisp, 15-18 minutes.

Preheat a cast-iron skillet over medium to medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine turkey with Worcestershire, salt and pepper then form 4 large, thin patties. Add oil to pan, 1 turn, then wipe pan with a paper towel to coat it in an even layer. Add patties and cook about 10 minutes, turning halfway, until cooked through. Top each patty with 2 slices of cheese in the last minute of cooking time.

Pile some guacamole on toast, top with a cheeseburger, 3 slices of bacon, some lettuce, tomato and another sliced of toast. Cut in half and serve.
