1/3 Avocado 80 Calories (7g fat)
Bun 130 Calories (1.5g fat)
2 slices Bacon 140 Calories (12g fat)
Total 690 Calories (36.5g fat)
It must be a very small bun. Otherwise, how would you get your mouth open enough to take a bite?

And from your recipe, if that's all on 1 burger, you're eating a half-pounder, stacked. But does it ever look yummy.

Kylie, for quite a while, you were simply commenting on other people's food and pictures. I was begining to think you were a food voyeur. Your picture proves otherwise. It looks very good. Nice job. Share the recipe.

Tonight at my house, it was Potatoes Anna, with pan-seared pork loin medallions and buttered, steamed spinach. The potatoes were dressed with a little paprika, salt, and pepper. As Potatoes Anna, they were baked in butter of course. I made them in individual ramekins, and gently eased them out and onto the plates. It made a very pretty presentation beside the nicely browned pork, and spinach. Best of all, it tasted great.

The pork had just a hint of pink in the middle, and so was juicy and full flavored. At times, I have to say that well prepared pork is my favorite meat flavor, until I eat a great steak, or wonderful chicken, or perfectly prepared trout, or, or, or...

Green salad with a Dijon/shallot vinaigrette to start. Main course: Shell pasta with a sauce of sauteed garlic, black olives, herbs, canned Tuscan tomatoes, and white wine. Served with Parmigiano Reggiano.
