With well oiled hands, shape into 6 patties (or use my favorite burger press). Chill for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend and patties to firm up.

Oil BBQ grate and grill burgers until fully cooked (internal temperature reaches 165°F), about 5-7 minutes per side.

For guacamole, combine lime juice and onion in a dish and let sit 15 minutes to mellow onions strong flavor. Add remaining ingredients, mashing to combine everything into a smooth mixture. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

  1. This burger was awesome. Even my teenage daughter who hates meat, took a bite and ended up eating the whole burger. I used bacon instead of pancetta, turkey burger and my GF breadcrumb stash from the freezer. The turkey burger was so tasty that I didn’t even bother making the guacamole! (My crew is used to Trader Joe’s turkey burgers—which are great but you can grow tired of them.) Well done and many thanks. I finally can get a decent GF meal!!!!
