Mealtime Monday: Ranch Burgers w/ Avocado

Next up on the menu....
Ranch Burgers with Avocado!
Y'all. you. have. to. try. these! This is another fabulous, easy recipe from Mix and Match Mama's recipe collection. All I added in was lime juice, and I made Sweet Potato Fries to along with the burgers. Pat brought his own salsa and cheese to add into his, which he liked and it looked great too! The family loved this meal!here

Shopping List
For burgers:
1 pound ground beef
1 (1 oz) packet Ranch dressing seasoning mix
1 avocado
1 lime (optional add in squirt)
1 cup Ranch dressing (from the bottle)
Sliced red onions
Burger Buns

For fries:
Olive Oil, for tossing
2 or 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch long slices, then 1/4-wide inch strips
1 tablespoon each:
Chili powder
black pepper
garlic powder

Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine ground beef with the packet of Ranch dressing seasoning mix. Divide ground beef mixture into 4 burger patties (+one little one for us). Grill about 6 minutes each side.

While the burgers are on the grill, place sliced avocado pieces in a food processor. Add in Ranch dressing and pulse until combined. (If you don't have a food processor, just use your hand mixer.)

Directions for fries:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Line a sheet tray with parchment. In a large bowl toss sweet potatoes with just enough oil to coat.
Sprinkle with seasonings.
Lay sweet potatoes in single layer on prepared baking sheet, being sure not to overcrowd. Bake until sweet potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally, about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

Remove burgers from the grill. Top bun with burger patty, avocado ranch sauce and sliced onion. Give a nice squirt of lime juice over all. Then top with bun and enjoy!!

This is how mine looked. I love the avocado and lime!

This is how Pat's looked. Notice he added cheese and hot sauce/ salsa to his. One more variation that looked delish!
