Make the patties
In a medium bowl, add all ingredients for the patties (except ghee); combine well. Divide mixture in half and form into two patties. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Make the salsa
In a small bowl, gently combine all ingredients for the salsa and set aside.
Cook the patties
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a cast iron skillet, add 1 tablespoon ghee. When melted, add both patties and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Flip, then place pan in the oven and cook for another 4 minutes. Remove and let sit for 1 minute. Place each patty on the bottom half of a bun, add a scoop of avocado salsa, finish with bun tops, and serve.
