Avocado Mayo


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • To prepare mayo: Combine avocado, mayonnaise, scallion, lime zest and a pinch of salt in a mini food processor. Puree until smooth.

  • To prepare sliders: Combine beef, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Form into 6 patties, about 3 inches in diameter.

  • Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 160 degrees F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Grill onion until lightly browned and tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Assemble each burger on a bun with a generous 1 tablespoon each of the Avocado Mayo, bacon, onion, mango, kale and sprouts.


Make Ahead Tip: Press plastic wrap directly on the surface of the Avocado Mayo (Step 2) and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)
