Have you ever heard of Foodgawker? Or maybe Dwellinggawker, Craftgawker, or Weddinggawker? Well if you haven’t, then you need to hurry up and get over to these sites! My favorite one, for obvious reasons, is Foodgawker. Each site is a photo gallery that allows you to visually search and discover – in Foodgawker’s case – new recipes, techniques, and ingredients to motivate you in your kitchen. They publish food photography submitted only by food bloggers from around the world and each image takes you directly to the post containing the recipe. It’s like Pinterest for bloggers! But there is no repinning, just the ability to “heart” a recipe (which adds it to your favorites). The site is updated all day long, every single day, and it has thousands of images and an incredible search engine. The other three sites are the exact same concept except that they of course show images from home blogs, craft blogs, and wedding blogs. Head over and see what I’m talking about (or click on my Foodgawker gallery icon on the right side of this page!).
I wanted to talk about Foodgawker because I have found so, so many recipes that I just love! I also get a ton of inspiration, like for this incredible burger that has quickly become my favorite! It’s so simple and delicious and yet how have I never thought of this before?! Make this, ASAP!
Avocado and Prosciutto Burger
Yield 4 burgers
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 whole wheat buns
- 4-6 slices prosciutto
- 4 slices cheese of your choice (try feta or swiss!)
- 2 avocados, cut in half and then sliced lengthwise
- mayo or other condiments
- red onion, thinly sliced
- Mix the ground beef with the minced garlic, salt and pepper (to your liking), and dried basil. Shape the beef into 4 uniform patties and press a small indent in the middle of each patty to keep them from bulging when cooked.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, clean it thoroughly, and spray the grill with grilling oil.
- Grill each patty to your desired temperature.
- Once the patties are done, remove them and then grill your prosciutto strips for about a minute (or until they crisp up).
- Load up your burger with condiments (Safflower mayo, mustard, whatever you prefer!) on each bun, then the patty, your cheese, onion, prosciutto slices, and lastly, the avocado slices.
