Refigerate. 30 minutes before cooking on the grill: —Remove the meat from the refridgerator —Saute 4 large cap mushrooms and 1/2 large sweet, white onion, sliced in Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil for 3 minutes until mushrooms are caramelized and onions are transparent. Add 5 cloves of garlic, smashed and diced to the mix 1 minute before done. —Slice an Avocado into 1/4 pieces and set aside —While the mushrooms and onions and garlic are sauteing, make the meat into 1/4 lb. patties, (5) burgers for the meat indicated. —Put the burgers on a platter, the onions, garlic, mushrooms in a dish, and the Avocado into a dish.
