Guac Burgers Without the Buns

I had something similar to this in a restaurant recently and was really impressed with the flavors.  I think the original had salsa but I don't always like salsa, so I skipped it.

Basically, it's a turkey burger with mozzarella and guacamole.  Here's how I made the guacamole.  I didn't have any tomatoes and I don't know that I always love it with tomatoes anyway.

Guacamole My Way:

1 avocado
half an onion
a generous amount of cumin
half a lime, juiced
a clove of garlic

Blend it all with a food processor and blitz it to the smoothness you like.  I like to use my Pampered Chef Manual Food Processor but you could do it however you'd like.

For the burgers:

Make turkey burgers however you like.  I added a little cumin to them too.

Top with mozzarella and let it melt.

Spread on a generous amount of guacamole.  K-ster said my amount was too generous but since it's got such good ingredients, I had to slather it on!

I served it with garlic bread because we're classy around here.

And because we didn't have any actual buns, so I used bread I had made for sandwiches.  Delicious!
