Juicy and flavorful, California Avocados give new life to this party classic.

Ingredients

Serves: 6
1 1/2  tsp.  Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2  tsp.  salt
3/4  tsp.  pepper
lb.  lean ground beef
1 1/2    ripe, Fresh California Avocados*
  As needed  Lettuce leaves as needed
  onions, sliced
  tomatoes, sliced
  sesame seed burger buns

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. Combine Worcestershire, salt and pepper and ground beef.
  2. Shape into patties. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Broil, grill or pan fry to desired doneness.
  4. While burger patties are cooking, seed, peel and mash the avocado.
  5. Serve each patty on bun with lettuce, sliced tomatoes and onion.
  6. Top each burger patty with mashed ripe Fresh California Avocado.

Serving Suggestions:
Try using baby spinach or baby arugula in place of the lettuce leaves for a delicious difference. Seasonally available heirloom tomatoes and sweet or red onions give burgers a garden-fresh flavor and pair beautifully with Fresh California Avocados.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
