This California Club Burger just might be my new favorite burger. I feel like we so often overthink burgers, but the key is to keep it simple.  All you really need is salt, garlic powder, and bold smokehouse black pepper to turn lean ground beef into a flavorful and tasty burger patty.

Top off that patty with all the fixin’s like fresh sprouts, cucumber, avocado, and bacon (because BACON) and a hearty drizzle of creamy ranch dressing.

THIS is what Summer tastes like.

I made this tonight, and it was SO good. I couldn’t find sprouts at the grocery stores here, I went to two different ones, and both were sold out, so I just left those off, but other than that I kept it the same. I will definitely be making these again!

These California Club Burgers look so good. I am always looking for a different way to prepare a burger. I’m anxious to try them. Shared and pinned. Thanks again.

Thanks for sharing!
