Fire up the grill...

The "Eternity" Burger just won first place in 
The Austin-American Statesman's Best Backyard Burger Chef. 

Yummm. What a perfect burger for Labor Day Weekend. 

The winning recipe:

8 oz. ground Angus beef

2 oz. white Cheddar cheese, grated

1 small avacado, sliced 1/4 inch thick

2 Hatch green chiles, chopped

2 Tbsp. crushed-up Fritos

2 Tbsp. cream cheese

1 whole grain wheat bun

1 Tbsp. melted butter

1 Tbsp. Dijon-style mustard

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. sea salt

In mixing bowl, combine beef with Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, black pepper and sea salt. Mix well and form one good patty for the grill. Grill over high heat and turn only one time. After flipping beef over, place cheese on top of patty to melt. Cover burger to help the melting . Prepare meat to desired doneness.

Open bun up and place on hot grill to toast.

Mix mustard, butter in a small bowl.

Place avocado slices directly on bottom bun and sprinkle crushed Fritos on top. Use a knife to "spread" the Fritos into the soft avocado.

Spread mustard sauce on top of it.

Place burger with melted cheese on top of the mustard sauce. Cover with green chiles.

Spread cream cheese on top bun, then place on top of chiles.
