Burgers:
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Heat a large frying pan and add some oil.
Fry a small amount of the burger mixture to check the seasoning. Adjust if necessary.
Form the mince mixture into burgers and fry for +- 4 minutes per side until browned and cooked through.
When you’ve flipped the burger the first time, place a slice  of cheese on the patty and allow to melt while the patty is cooking.
Serve on a fresh bread roll with home-made salsa and guacamole.

Guacamole:
Remove the avocado flesh from the skin and mash with the lemon juice, salt & pepper.
Set aside until you’re ready to use it.
