Inside-Out Burgers with Avocado and Sprouts


  • 1.25 pound(s) 90% lean ground beef
  • .5 cup(s) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup(s) alfalfa or radish sprouts
  • .25 cup(s) (loosely packed) fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 4 multigrain hamburger buns, split
  • 2 small tomatoes, each cut into 4 wedges


  1. Lightly spray ridged grill pan or skillet with nonstick cooking spray, then heat on medium until hot.
  2. Meanwhile, on work surface, shape ground beef into eight 3 1/2-inch patties, handling meat as little as possible for best texture. Place Cheddar in center of 4 patties, leaving 1/2-inch border around each patty's edge. Top with remaining 4 patties, and press edges together to seal burgers well. Lightly sprinkle burgers with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to season both sides.
  3. Place burgers in hot grill pan, and cook 12 minutes for medium or until desired doneness, turning burgers over once halfway through cooking.
  4. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mash avocado with lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. In another small bowl, combine alfalfa sprouts and chopped cilantro.
  5. Serve burgers on buns with sprout and avocado mixtures. Serve tomato wedges on the side.
