- Make a simple guacamole by gently mixing the avocado, garlic, green onions, salt and pepper together. Reserve about a third of the guacamole and stir the rest into the protein patties, being careful not to over mix.
- Shape into 4 patties. Grill or broil until done (about 3-5 minutes on each side).
- Top bottom buns with optional ketchup or mustard, add a thin slice of onion, top with burger patty and a dollop of remaining mashed avocado.
Serving Suggestion: Serve in a lettuce wrap instead of the buns.
Beverage Pairing: Cucumber-infused water.
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.
