Tonight everything has changed in the hamburger world. Every time I attempt to have any type of burger I’m stuck with the plain burger and no bun. Tonight, everything’s changin! My excitement about this new GF hamburger bun (that’s actually not filled with total junk) is soaring high!
On this fine night we decided to make grass-fed ground beef burgers and as we walked around Whole Foods we actually came across gluten free hamburger buns! If only you could have seen the excitement in my eyes as we quickly threw the package into our cart.
I’ve never been so happy about a hamburger bun before and boy was it worth every bit of hype. You see, I’m always the girl who makes sure her burger comes without the bun, not because I’m watching my carb intake, but because my body can’t tolerate the gluten that’s in the buns! Please check out Canyon Bakehouse for an incredible (healthier then all the rest) surprise.
We were so hungry when we got home from the market that we couldn’t wait to start cooking immediately.
I grabbed the ground meat, scallions, garlic powder, cinnamon and lime and prepared myself to make the best kickin’ burger around town.
We toasted the buns, got out the ketchup, hot sauce (for Chad) and sauerkraut. YUMMY
The cinnamon gave it the most incredible hint of sweetness. According to Chad, we made the best damn burger that he’s had in NYC!
Here’s the recipe: This will make 3-4 burgers depending on their size
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound of grass-fed ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ a lime
Start by removing your meat from the package and place it into a mixing bowl. Chop your scallions using the green and white parts and add them in with the meat. Then add your garlic and cinnamon and mix together. Make your patties and set them aside on a separate platter.
Place a frying pan on the stove and pour in your olive oil. Heat on high until the oil is hot, then lower to a medium flame. Place your burgers in the pan and let cook, flipping when needed so both sides cook evenly. Take the lime and sprinkle some juice over each side of the burgers. Sprinkle some extra cinnamon on each side as you flip the burgers. Cook until desired and place on a plate with paper towel to soak up any extra oil.
Load up your burger and enjoy!
