salsa plus additional for serving

50% reduced-fat grated cheddar

Place patties on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place buns on a baking sheet and heat in oven until warm to the touch, 4 to 6 minutes.

Add remaining oil, flip patties and cook until underside is golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve topped with salsa, lettuce, avocado, onions and, if desired, on buns.
