7. Grab a palm-sized chunk of mince and roll it into a ball. Gently flatten the patty using your hands, press down in the centre to hollow it out slightly, making space for where your avo will go. (Note: it’s not advised to press the patty directly onto a counter or board as it can get stuck, so do the shaping in your hands.)
