CALIFORNIA AVOCADO BURGER
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. pepper
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 1/2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados*
As needed Lettuce leaves as needed
2 onions, sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced
6 sesame seed burger buns
Combine Worcestershire, salt and pepper, and ground beef.
Shape into patties. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Broil, grill, or pan-fry to the desired doneness.
While burger patties are cooking, seed, peel and mash the avocado.
Serve each patty on a bun with lettuce, sliced tomatoes, and onion.
Top each burger patty with mashed ripe Fresh California Avocado.
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.
