“Just because I don't eat meat doesn't mean I don't miss certain things--especially certain comfort foods. This is one of those foods. I've even impressed a few self-proclaimed carnivores with these. The avocados are optional, but they really do add to the whole...ummm... sandwich experience? Wow that sounds kinda lame. Anyway, I suppose you could use actual ground beef to make these but I cannot vouch for that version of this recipe. Prep/cooking times are estimated.”
