I had no plans of posting this recipe (believe it or not, I do not post everything I make for my family ;-) but these were soooooooo insanely good, I had to. I mean my family was already asking me (half way through eating the burger) when I was going to make the burgers again. There is just something about the combo of the smoke from the smoked paprika and wood grilling with the sweetness from the slow roasted tomatoes and rub, plus adding the richness from the cheese and avocado, Amazing!! We enjoyed this meal with a big simple salad, corn chips with smoked salsa and some roasted red pepper hummus. I will be cooking this meal again next week!
ps, I know in the picture is looks like there is ketchup on the bun but it is just the juice from the roasted tomato.
Roasted Tomato Avocado Smoked Burger
4 Smoked Burger*
Roasted Tomatoes, I used small/medium vine tomatoes
4 buns, we like whole wheat
sliced cheese, ideally something smoked like smoked provolone
Grill the buns, spread a little Dijon on for spiciness, top the burger with some roasted tomatoes and avocado, then enjoy!!
1 pound ground meat, I used elk
1/4 cup of my smoked paprika rub
Mix together and form four burgers. Grill as you like. If you have some wood for smoking, add that to your grill. We threw on some apple wood. As soon as you pull the burgers, top with cheese so it will melt.
