This chimichurri burger recipe has my heart!
Respect the Bun® with Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics and create the best BBQ burger recipes this summer! My family never turns down a stunning, juicy burger, and when it comes to finishing off these BBQ beauties, we top them off with our favorite Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns which are always baked the right way.
Stack that burger!
How do you stack your burger? Some days, I enjoy them plain and straight forward with a bit of mustard, while other times I can seem to get enough avocado or caramelized onions piled on there. For this chimichurri burger recipe, I’ve added a stunning, garlicky chimichurri sauce, then layered it with heirloom tomatoes, provolone cheese, creamy avocados slices and caramelized onions.

- 2 lbs fresh ground Beef
- Salt and Pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- 1 - 2 tsp Liquid Smoke, optional
- 1 medium Red Onion, sliced and lightly salted
- 1 - 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 heirloom Tomato, sliced
- Avocado, sliced
- Provolone Cheese slices
- Chimichurri Sauce, recipe here
- In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, salt, pepper and garlic powder together until well incorporated.
- Form into desired size beef patties.
- Chill, covered, in refrigerator at least 30 minutes before grilling.
- Prepare your grill.
- Heat a cast iron skillet on the grill with about 1 Tbsp of Olive Oil, then add the sliced Onions and cook for about 5 minutes or until tender and starting to brown. Set aside.
- You can either cook the burgers on your grill directly or indirectly using the cast iron skillet (as I did). Cook the burger patties for about 3 - 5 minutes on each side or until your desired doneness. If topping with cheese, add to burger patties and allow to melt for about 30 seconds while on the grill.
- Top your Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns with a slice of heirloom tomatoes, grilled burger patties, caramelized Onions, sliced Avocados and drizzle with Chimichurri sauce.
