For dressing, heat a dry skillet on medium heat and toast sesame seeds 3 to 5 minutes, stirring. When seeds turn golden, remove from heat to prevent scorching. Place in blender with remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Set aside.

By hand, mix ground beef, eggs and seasonings to combine. Form into six patties, handling meat as little as possible. Grill patties about 3 minutes per side, or to taste.

Place burgers on buns, garnish with sliced tomato, avocado and onions, and spoon on sesame dressing.
