Who says burgers can't be healthy? These homemade gluten-free burgers are a quick & easy fix when you fancy something a little meaty and the whole family will love them.
Homemade burgers are a great way to get creative in the kitchen and it's also a great way to know exactly what's going into them.
I make these burgers with whatever mincemeat I fancy enjoying at the time (pick from beef, pork or lamb) and add in a few essential herbs such as smoked paprika, chilli, tarragon, coriander or cumin.
It's really easy to make your own burgers at home. Simply add your mincemeat to a food processor along with the other ingredients, pulse until everything is combined and then fry in a pan on medium heat until cooked.
Homemade Gluten-free Primal Burgers
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 450g lean mincemeat (beef, pork or lamb)
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg, pre-whisked
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 3-4 tbsp herbs, we suggest smoked paprika, chilli, tarragon, coriander or cumin
- In a blender, gently pulse the meat with the onions, salt, pepper and egg and add your
- favourite herbs.
- Try and avoid it becoming a purée, some texture is always best.
- As their flavours generally become diluted during cooking, we find that you normally
- require more herbs than you first think.
- On a chopping board, shape the burgers with your hands, then you can either shallow fry
- in coconut oil, butter, ghee or place in the oven. If frying, fry on a medium heat for about 4
- minutes each side for medium, longer if you prefer well done, or about 20 minutes in the
- oven at gas mark 7 (220 degrees Celsius).
