- Place all the ingredients for the burgers in a large bowl. Season and mix well. Cover and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
- Using wet hands, shape the mixture into 8 burgers. Place them flat between sheets of baking paper in a rigid freezerproof container. Freeze for up to 3 months.
- Defrost the burgers completely in the fridge; this will take 3-4 hours.
- Heat a griddle pan or barbecue to hot. Brush both sides of the burgers with oil and cook for 3-4 minutes each side or until well browned and cooked.
- Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium hot. Top each burger with a slice of cheese and grill for 2 minutes until bubbling. Toast the burger buns until lightly golden.
- Mix the mayonnaise with the mustard and spread over the base of each bun.
- Add some tomato, lettuce and avocado slices, then the burger, red onion slices and the other half of the bun.
- Serve with a small bowl of ketchup and fries, if you like.
