  1. 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  2. 2 tablespoons of mixed herbs
  3. Salt and pepper to taste
  4. 2 ripe avocados
  5. 6 slices of bacon
  6. Large handful of spinach
  7. 2 large tomatoes sliced
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
  2. 2. Using your hands, combine the ground chicken or turkey, mixed herbs, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. 3. Form the mixture into six or eight circular burger shapes, but flatten them down so they are around 1-inch thick. (These will form the ‘bun’ for the burger.)
  4. 4. Place the burgers on a grill tray and cook for about 20 minutes, or you can panfry if pushed for time (this takes around 10 minutes).
  5. 5. While the burgers are cooking, start to prepare your filling.
  6. 6. Scoop all the flesh out of the avocados into a bowl, add salt and pepper, and simply mash together until creamy (keep it a little chunky like a guacamole ).
  7. 7. Cook the bacon in a frying pan until nice and golden.
  8. 8. Remove the burger ‘buns’ from the oven.
  9. 9. Assemble the layers in this order: meat bun, spinach leaves, two rashers of bacon, two spoonfuls of mashed avocado, tomato slices, and top with another meat bun.
  10. 10. Admire your creation for a few minutes then wolf it down you whilst it’s still hot!
  1. Try adding a tablespoon of fresh coriander, squeeze of fresh lemon juice or 1/2 teaspoon of chilli to the avocado mixture for an extra flavor hit.
