Mexican Burgers with Avocado, Fried Egg & Tomato Salsa

Well, well, look who decided to show her face on here once more. The last couple of weeks have been quite life changing for me. I finished my 9-month graduation placement, handed in my thesis, and done my thesis defense. And what do you know…

I GRADUATED!!!everybody dance now the office

So yeah, after all the stress and nerves I just had to relax and sit down to read a book. However, I did have time to make this wonderfully easy burger! It’s sort of inspired by Mexican cuisine, and may I say that it is mighty delicious.IMG_1602When you bite through the crunchy bread, the egg yolk starts running slightly, and combines its silky flavour with the intense tomato salsa and the freshness of the coriander. Add to this the creamy avocado and the stunning burger, and you’ve got yourself a fiesta in your mouth! IMG_1605

Also, it literally takes you about 15 minutes to make. Fun times.

Mexican Burger with Avocado, Fried Egg & Tomato Salsa

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 4 burgers
  • 4 crunchy bread rolls
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 grams rocket lettuce
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 or 2 chili peppers (depending on how spicy you want the salsa to be)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1-2 tsp of sugar

Used kitchen appliances

  • 2 frying pans
  • 1 mixing bowl


  1. Start with the tomato salsa: Finely dice the tomatoes, slice the onions, and place in the mixing bowl. Remove the seeds from the peppers, chop the cilantro, and add to the tomatoes. Pour over the lime juice and sugar. Mix and season to taste. Leave in the fridge. For an optimal result you could make this beforehand.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil/butter in both frying pans. Bake the burgers on a medium heat until cooked (about 8-10 min). Fry the eggs on a medium heat as well, about 5 minutes so the yolk stays runny.
  3. Slice the avocado (find out how here). Slice the bread rolls in half horizontally. Place some rocket lettuce on the bottom, add the avocados, the burger, the tomato salsa, and the fried egg on top. Top it with the other half of the bread.
