Yield: Yields about 1 cup avocado spread
Servings: Serve 4
This burger—two patties surrounding molten cheese core—was inspired by the specialty at Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The creamy, tangy avocado spread is terrific on all kinds of burgers and can be made ahead (thanks to the lime juice and vinegar, it won’t readily discolor).

I made this as a recipe for 2 with 8 ounces of ground turkey, which was plenty. All in all, low on flavor. Avocado spread was too thin and pretty flavorless as were the burgers. They definitely needed more cheese. Not a bust just not a repeat.
We really enjoyed this recipe - it was something different from the typical burger. That being said, I used half the lemon zest called for (because I find a little lemon, like rosemary, goes a long way) ad it was still too much - lemon was the overriding taste to the burger. Next time I would up all the other seasonings and use about a quarter of the lemon zest. I also added garlic, like the other reviewer, and really liked that flavor.
Great flavour....especially for ground turkey. I added some minced garlic, no other changes. I did goof with the execution....the burgers were really thick, so I thought I would brown them and finish them in the oven, but all the cheese oozed out...still had the cheese flavour, but didn't stay in the centre. Next time will stick to the grill pan. The avocado sauce was also great, once it had time for the flavours to mellow.
