Lean-Green Burgers with Avocado Ranch

I have to thank one of my favorite people for this one…Rachael Ray! She made a burger on her show a few weeks ago.

They’re generally healthy already, so I didn’t need to make too many modifications. My kids usually like greens anyway, so I didn’t need to trick them. But what better way to get your kiddos to eat their vegetables?! So go ahead, eat your greens…cause they’re inside the burger!
