- 6 avocados
- 6 small butter lettuce leaves
- 6 rashers crispy, streaky bacon

- Grate the cucumber and squeeze out all moisture. Mix through the cumin and yoghurt. Season.
- Combine the mince, coriander and parsley. Season. Shape into 6 patties.
- 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.
- 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.
