Add all ingredients into a big bowl. the best way to do this is with your hands. Scrunch the mixture together really well, then divide into 6 equal balls for burgers.

Wet your hands and roll the balls into burger-shaped patties about 2cm thick.

Place your burgers on the oiled baking tray and pat with a little olive oil. Cover them with cling film and put the tray into the fridge for at least an hour, or until the patties firm up.

Put some oil into a  frying pan or griddle pan, put it on a high heat and fry for 3 or 4 minutes per side.

Cut buns in half, layer with butter lettuce, gherkin, tomato, red onion, sauce of choice, cheese and avocado.
