Stuffed burger:
1. Preheat grill for medium heat.
2. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, pepper, and salt using your hands. 

3. Form the mixture into 4 thin hamburger patties.
4. Place avocado, gruyere, and bacon in the center of 2 patties. Lay the remaining 2 patties over the other ones and pinch edges close. Flatten patties so they are consistently thick.
5. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill patties 5-7 minutes per side, or until well done.

Garlic fries:
1. Heat oil in a large skillet.
2. Slice potatoes about a 1/4 inch thick. Season with pepper and salt. 
3. Add potatoes to oil (To test if oil is hot enough, dip a potato slice in and see if it crackles. Oil should just cover the potatoes).
3. Cook for ~10 minutes, or until golden brown.
4.  Lay on paper towel lined plate and sprinkle garlic and salt & pepper over fries.
