Deluxe Sweet Basil Burger

This is, without a doubt, our favorite burger. I am pretty sure, if it was up to Steven, we would be eating this several days a week. The flavor combination in this one is so perfect, you have got to try it!

Deluxe Sweet Basil Burger
1lb ground chicken
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp sweet basil
1 tsp garlic powder
Mix all burger ingredients together in a large bowl.

Allow to meld together in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This will really give you a depth of flavor.
Form into 4 oz patties and grill or cook on stove top (which we had to do because of our rainy Seattle weather).

Burger Toppings:
4 slices of nitrate free/uncured bacon
      6 oz fresh spinach
      2 tbsp oil (to cook spinach- can use bacon grease or evoo)
      ½ tsp salt
      1 tsp onion powder
4 eggs
2 Ripe Avocados
 Bake bacon in the oven.
Use rendered grease for the next step cooking the spinach.
In large saute/fry pan, place grease and heat. Add in spinach and spices and continually flip with tongs until wilted.
Fry eggs to desired yoke consistency.
Place burger on bed of fresh greens.

Once all ingredients are cooked, place spinach, bacon and egg on top of burger to warm through in the pan. Once warmed, place burger on a bed of fresh greens and top with ripe avocado. Enjoy!
