Avocado Sliders

Adding a fresh Chilean Avocado to a burger is a simple and delicious way to make that burger even better. Not only do they add a rich creamy taste to burgers, they also are a great nutrient-dense topping that can be used as a substitute for other toppings that contain saturated fat.

2 lbs. (90% lean) ground beef 
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 medium sweet onion, minced 
1 Tbsp. reduced sodium Worchestershire sauce 
Sea salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
ripe avocados, mashed 
whole wheat buns

Place ground beef in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with garlic powder, onion, Worchestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix together using a large wooden spoon (or your hands) until combined. Form into 4 patties.

Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add burgers and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes. Turn and continue cooking until desired doneness is reached, about 2 minutes for medium, 3 for medium well, or 4 for well done.

Transfer burgers to buns. Add desired toppings (including Chilean Avocados). Serve hot.
