INGREDIENTS

  • ¼ cucumber, seeds removed
  • 3ml ground cumin
  • 125ml Greek yoghurt
  • 400g beef mince
  • 5ml ground coriander
  • handful parsley, chopped
  • avocado oil, for frying
  • 6 Cheddar slices
  • 6 avocados
  • 6 small butter lettuce leaves
  • 6 rashers crispy, streaky bacon
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • sesame seeds, for sprinkling

METHOD

  1. Grate the cucumber and squeeze out all moisture. Mix through the cumin and yoghurt. Season.
  2. Combine the mince, coriander and parsley. Season. Shape into 6 patties.
  3. Heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high and fry the patties for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked. Place on a baking tray and top with Cheddar. Bake under a hot grill until the cheese has melted.
  4. Cut the avocados in half through the width. Remove the pits and peel the skins. Trim the point so that it stands. Season. Fill the holes with the tzatziki.
  5. Top 3 halves with lettuce, patties, bacon, tomato, onion and the remaining avo halves (secure with skewers if necessary). Sprinkle with seeds.

Health fact: moisturise from the inside with the antioxidants, amino acids and essential oils packed in an avocado!
