Turkey-Bacon-Guacamole Burgers

So tomorrow is the big game! Super Bowl....what number is it???? Oh yes, Super Bowl XLIV... right??? I really wish I was more of a football fan. The game will be on tomorrow at our house and we will have chips, dip, and beer on hand. I will try to watch and grasp just what all of those penalty flags are all about.

I will also whip up some guacamole, thanks to Joe!

Isn't this just the coolest little kit you've ever seen? I spotted it the moment I entered the store and I nearly jumped for joy! I am pretty sure that the employees at Trader Joe's are used to this jumping for joy business and probably wouldn't have even batted an eye.

Here is a great way to use your guacamole kit!

Turkey-Bacon-Guacamole Burgers
by theUngourmet

makes 4 1/4lb burgers

1 lb ground turkey
4 slices of turkey bacon
1 trader joe's guacamole kit
sliced cheddar cheese
lettuce leaves
a nice loaf of crusty bread

Put together your guacamole. Cook your bacon until crisp. Shape your patties, season with your choice of seasoning. Cook thoroughly. Place the turkey burgers on toasted bread and garnish with cheese, guacamole and lettuce.

Serve with chips and beer.

Cheer for your favorite team and have a fun day!

So much fun. I'm reading about all this football frenzy all of you are getting ready for, and I can't help it but smile. There's nothing like that on this side of the world.
Ok, when Italy won World Soccer Championship that was pretty crazy, but people mostly drink and go out in the streets to celebrate, there is nothing like "must have food" you prepare at home.
I love this idea of a burger with guacamole, and the kit is so handy :)))

The burgers sound great, and that little kit is a fabulous marketing tool!

This burger sounds perfect for Super Bowl or any other day for that matter. A winner no matter who wins the football game.

I love those kits at TJ's! I swear that that store and I have a psychic connection.

These burgers are one of the best ways to enjoy guac!

And I don't understand those penalty flags either. I'm just in it for the food.

Hopefully I'll have leftover avocados after today's game and I'll give this rcipe a try tomorrow! I think the best way for you to enjoy the game is get some money on the game. A little side bet with the hubs even. That way you'll be cheering for that next touchdown and then shopping the next day!

Looks like a mighty tasty burger although I do thing the Guacomole kit is a bit of a racket. Everything in the kit is available at the grocery.

No Trader Joe's here but I did visit my first one when in San Francisco. This is also a reminder that I was going to make Guac Burgers this week, love the turkey bacon.

p/s I know this response is a bit delayed (been super busy!) but thanks for visiting my travel blog. Hope your son is catching up well on his Chinese studies. Altho' I'm Chinese but I'm horrible with the language :(

cool kit - I am making ground chicken tacos and I sure wish I had a little guac to go with it...the bacon burger cheesy combo looks like the ticket!

Jenn said...

Funny TJ's has a kit. Not much of a football fan myself, but I will be eating some yummy snacks while the game is one though.

Chef Aimee said...

Not much of a football fan either - I was just afraid to say it out loud! Left something for you on my blog - stop by and pick it up when you get a minute.

What a great idea to have a guacamole kit!

But I would pass it by, not a fan of onions or tomatoes in my guac! :D

KennyT said...
