    Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook onion in skillet 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until tender. Remove from skillet.
  • 3
    Add beef patties to skillet. Cook 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160°F. Place lettuce on the bottom, then the cheese and patties. Top patties with onion, avocado and tomato. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • To get to that luscious avocado quickly, first cut it lengthwise in half around the pit. On a solid surface and with your other hand out of the way, hit the pit with the blade of a sharp knife so it sticks, then twist the knife to easily remove the pit from the avocado. Carefully remove the pit from the knife with a paper towel because it's very slippery. Peel off the leathery skin with your fingers.
