These burgers use avocado halves as the buns. They are a fun and low carb way to serve burgers this summer for your next grilling event.

I am so happy with how these turned out! I’ve been brainstorming ideas for Memorial Day weekend. We will definitely be using our grill and smoker. While browsing through avocado recipes, I came across images for avocado burger buns.

I saw a few photos, but I didn’t like that the avocados were sliced cross-wise, making them really tall and hard to eat. So the first thing I did was slice my avocados lengthwise, so that they are close in height and width to a regular bread bun.

  • 4 large avocados (you want avocados that are ripe but still very firm, see notes)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef or turkey (you can also use pre-made quarter pound patties)
  • 4 slices of cheese of your choice (I did swiss and cheddar)
  • 1/2 tsp white sesame seeds
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • about 16 baby spinach leaves
  • 4 large green leaf lettuce leaves (each one should be big enough to wrap around your avocado burger)
  • salt and pepper
  • condiments of your choice

  1. Slice avocados in half, length-wise. Remove seed. Peel away the skin from the avocado halves. For each avocado, choose the prettier, rounder half. Lay the selected halves face down and then sprinkle with white sesame seeds (about 1/8 tsp each). Gently press the seeds into the surface of the avocado flesh so that they remain in place.
  2. With your ground meat, form four quarter pound balls. Season with salt and pepper. Place onto hot grill (you can also cook in a pan on a stove) and press down gently so that the balls form patties. Cook each side a few minutes until burgers are close to your desired doneness. Add a cheese slice on top of each patty and cover the grill until burgers are done and cheese is melted.
  3. To assemble your burgers, place each of avocado halves without sesame seeds onto a lettuce leaf. If needed, you can slice a little off the bottom of the avocados so that the avocado half has a flat surface to stand on. You can also maneuver and fold the lettuce leaves so that they help form a stable base for the avocado halves. Add 2 pieces of baby spinach, 1 slice of tomato, burger patty, 2 more pieces of spinach, any condiments you desire, and then top with an avocado half (one that has the sesame seeds). You do need to be careful as you stack the burger and place items in a way so that the weight is evenly distributed. Serve burgers while still warm.
  4. When eating the burger, you can unfold and use the lettuce to wrap around the burger, to help keep the burger together and also keep your hands from getting dirty as touching the avocado halves directly can get messy.
