What’s inside this avocado burger? Anything you want.

The idea is from Love One TodayLove One Today, the consumer website for the Hass Avocado Board and a source for everything avocado, including recipes.

Starting with two avocado halves that form the “buns” or “bread,” you can add:

  • Any type of patty
  • Any type of sandwich fixings
  • Chicken, egg or seafood salad
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce, onion and tomato
  • Other raw vegetables (artichoke hearts, arugula, cucumbers, kale, radishes, red cabbage, shaved vegetables (broccoli stems, carrots or fennel), snow peas, sprouts, watercress
  • Pickled vegetables
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Salad dressing (blue cheese, ranch, Russian)
  • Slaw
  • Condiments: chutney, mostarda, mayonnaise (ideally, flavored mayo*), olives, salsa, slaw, tapenade
  •  
    For our first avocado burger, we created the Ultimate Veggie Burger: veggie burger, lettuce and tomato, sweet onion, pickled vegetables, raw vegetables, roasted vegetables, sprouts…and melted gruyère cheese.

    (Frankly, we went through everything in the fridge.)

    We placed the gruyère in a ramekin, melted it in the microwave, and poured it over the other ingredients piled onto the bottom avocado half; then put the top on and garnished the veggie burger with a toothpick of assorted olives.

    We served our Ultimate Veggie Burger with a fruit skewer made from what we had on hand: melon balls, seedless grapes and strawberries.

    A good lunch was had by all!
