Pickled Shallots and Avocado Spread:
To prepare the pickled shallots, combine vinegar, sugar and salt in an airtight jar until dissolved. Add shallots and whole spices to jar and fill with water until completely covered. Refrigerate for a day or at least 2 weeks. For the spread, combine mashed avocado, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard. Chop 2 Tbsp of the pickled shallots and add to spread mixture. Set aside while making burgers.
For the burgers, combine ground beef, bacon, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form four equal patties to ½” thick and grill on medium high heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and add a slice of cheese while cooking for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until desired doneness. Serve on toasted buns with a smear of the Avocado Spread. Add arugula, tomatoes, additional pickled shallots, and other desired toppings. Makes 4 burgers.
