Burgers with Avocado Salsa & Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise

I am a husband and father of 2 young boys, I love to try new ideas and came up with a avocado salsa that my family loves. When i saw the Build a Better Burger contest I figured why not try it as a topping for a burger. I made them for my family and needless to say it was a hit.

1 head garlic
3/4 cup Mayonnaise

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon xtra virgin olive oil

2 Avocados
2 plum tomatoes, seeded & chopped
1/3 cup chopped red onion
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 slices jalapeno

Garlic Mayo: Preheat gas grill to medium high. The to make mayo slice top 1/3 off head of garlic. Brush top of exposed garlic with olive oil. Replace top 1/2 and wrap with foil.

Brush grill grates with oil, put patties on grill, cover and cook for 4 minutes - without touching them -flip over and cook 3 minutes more. Add cheese slices to the top of the burgers and cover. Toast the rolls while the cheese is melting. To assemble burgers: Spread Garlic mayonnaise on the top and bottom of the roll and add burgers. Spoon a generous amount of the avocado salsa on each patty, cover with bun top and serve.
