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

Serves: 2-3
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).
