Guacamole is the perfect sandwich spread – anywhere you would add some avocado slices, think about using some guac instead. There is a prepared one that is just fantastic – Wholly Guacamole. It is super fresh tasting and available in the refrigerated section of your grocery store. The guac adds great flavor, moistness, and a healthful amount of MUFAs for your diet 🙂

2 slices light wheat brad (40 calories each)
6 slices thin deli sliced turkey breast (Hillshire Farms thin sliced is great !)
2 slices tomato
2 T Wholly Guacamole
Spread guac on bread then add turkey and tomato. Enjoy !
The avocado topping brings back much needed moisture to an often dry turkey burger. Feel free to add tomato and onion slices – they carry a minimum of calories. If you can’t get your hands on a nice ripe avocado, substitute Wholly Guacamole (a super fresh guac available in the refrigerator section of your market).

2 turkey burgers (Jennie-O)
2 100 calorie buns (Arnold Select Sandwich Thins – multi grain)
1/2 c worth of avocado slices (about 6 slices) – or use some Wholly Guacamole (available at most markets)
salt and pepper
Heat a pan on medium high. Remove from heat to spray with Pam. Heat frozen burgers according to package instructions (you can alternately grill or broil the burgers, but cook them slow so they do not dry out). When done, place on a bun and add 3 slices of avocado on the top.
This makes the job of making avocado slices a breeze – tools such as these make perfect slices all the time !
These are not are not a replacement for burgers – if you think of it that way, you are going to be disappointed. Take these for what they are – an amazing savory, tasty pressed veggie patty that is only 120 calories. Topped with avocado and salsa, and placed on a bun, it makes a great meal.

4 Morningstar black bean burgers
4 Arnold Thins 100 calorie flat buns
1 avocado, sliced (or 3 T Wholly Guacamole per burger)
1 c salsa
Cook black bean burgers according to package instructions. Place on buns and top with 1/4 the sliced avocado and 1/4 c salsa. Although not shown on the package, I often heat the oven to 375 degrees and place the burgers on a baking sheet sprayed with Pam and then cook for 15 minutes – they come out perfect !
