Directions

  1. Make the relish: combine the avocados, onion, jalapeno, lime juice, and cilantro in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. The relish can be made up to 1 hour in advance and kept at room temperature.
  3. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions (about 6 ounces each).
  4. Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch thick burger and make a deep depression in the center with your thumb.
  5. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper.
  6. Heat oil in a pan or griddle over high heat until the oil begins to shimmer; cook the burgers until golden brown and slightly charred on the first side, about 3 minutes for beef, 5 minutes for turkey; flip burgers over; cook until golden brown and slightly charred on the second side (4 minutes for med-rare beef, 5 minutes for turkey).
  7. During last minute of cooking, cover each patty with a slice of cheese and cover with a basting cover or tent burgers with foil.
  8. Place the burgers on the bun bottoms and top each one with a few sprigs of watercress, a slice of tomato, and a dollop of the avocado relish.
  9. Cover with bun tops and serve immediately.

This was very easy to put together and was very fresh-tasting. I did not serve buns or cheese with this. I also was out of cilantro and could not find watercress. We still really enjoyed this and I will definitely make again, if only for the simplicity. Next time I might try the pepper jack cheese.
