Serve it tonight: Combine first 4 ingredients. Form into 6 patties. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties until no longer pink and the internal temperature reaches at least 165°. Combine Red Bell Pepper Hummus Mix with water and let sit 10 minutes. Meanwhile, halve avocados and scoop out pulp. Mash with a fork and combine with hummus mixture. Top burger with hummus. Salt and pepper to taste. /p>

Freeze it for later: Combine turkey, onion and Rustic Herb Seasoning in a gallon resealable freezer bag. In a quart resealable freezer bag place whole, unpeeled avocados and packet of Red Bell Pepper Hummus Mix. Place both bags in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Add cilantro to meat mixture and prepare as directed above. Serve on lettuce leaves or hamburger buns, if desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unsuspected awesomeness! I have to admit these did not "look" good but I had to give them a try. They turned out amazing. I would not freeze the avocado next time. Give this gem a try so yummy
