Recipe for Tuscam Burgers & Avocado-Tomato Spread


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (95% lean)
  • 1 Fresh California Avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 whole-grain hamburger buns, split
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh fennel bulb (core removed)


  1. Mash avocado in a small bowl (should be chunky, not smooth). Add sun-dried tomatoes and half of the garlic; mix well. Set aside.
  2. Combine beef, remaining garlic, 2 tablespoons minced basil leaves, and salt in a medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place patties in skillet; cook 10 to 12 minutes to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove patties from the skillet. Place buns cut side down in skillet, and cook 1 minute or until lightly toasted.
  4. Place burgers on the bottom of the buns; top each with equal amounts of avocado-tomato spread, fennel, and remaining basil leaves. Close sandwiches.
