These colossal cheeseburgers are unbelievably tender and juicy inside, with plenty of cheese and bacon on the outside. A simple smashed avocado mixture adds a perfect fresh finishing touch!

Total Time 40minutes
1cupdry bread crumbs
8garlic clovesfinely minced
3medium ripe avocadospeeled and pitted
2tablespoonsminced fresh cilantro
8hamburger buns for serving
In a large bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Shape meat into 8 patties and make a dent in the center of each one.
Grill hamburgers over medium-high heat, flipping occasionally until meat registers 180F. During last 5 minutes of cooking, top each hamburger with mozzarella slices and cook until melted. Transfer burgers to a plate and wrap each one in slices of bacon. Set aside for a moment while you prepare the smashed avocado.
In a medium bowl, mash all avocado ingredients until combined (mixture will still be slightly chunky)
Assemble the burgers: Place a bacon-wrapped hamburger on each bun and generously top with smashed avocado mixture. Serve hamburgers immediately after assembling.
Hamburgers are best if eaten immediately after assembling.
