I love bacon and I love burgers! So I decided to make a Paleo burger, which is basically just a burger with no bun. I like slightly spicy foods, so in general I always add a little heat to whatever I’m cooking, because it’s just better that way. 😉
What you will need (Makes 4 servings)
4 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked and set to the side.
1lb ground beef
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp oregano
pinch of salt and black pepper
Lettuce, for a “bun”
Spicy mustard for topping
Mix the ingredients from ** and beyond together and form patties. We use a George Foreman grill, because we love it. Seriously, it’s like my favorite piece of equipment in the kitchen. If you don’t have one, you should buy one, but in the meantime you can use a pan on the stove. In the George Foreman grill you place the patties for approximately 8 minutes or until it is no longer pink in the middle, to cook it in a pan cook for 4 minutes on one side and 4 on the other – check the center for pinkness.
When they are fully cooked, you put them onto a nice large piece of lettuce, add a little bit of spicy mustard and the bacon and voila, delicious and paleo friendly 🙂
