mini burgs


Trust me…you won’t even miss the bun!  Really…these burgers are so flavourful, you will want them to stand alone.  I have always been a meat lover (steak yummmm), but since zeroing in on my diet and increasing my workouts I have become a CRAZY CARNIVORE!!!  I can actually really notice that my body totally craves protein now…BIGTIME!

Preparing and cooking these tasty burgs are super easy and will satisfy those cravings ASAP.  To date, this is definately one of our favourite Paleo recipes.  When I made these the first time, I used lean ground beef and have since tried the same recipe with ground turkey.  Both turned out equally as delicious, it just depends on what you are in the mood for.  One thing is for sure…these little protein bites are definitely a PARTY in the mouth!

The next time I make these mini burgs, I am going to get more adventurous and experiment with elk, bison or maybe even wild boar~ who knows?  I am on a mission to investigate and check out some local butchers and farms to see what I can get my hands on!  Eaters BEWARE, these little stacks of goodness are highly addictive.  Bet you won’t be able to stop at 3 or 4 or 5…

    Sounds and looks great. Can you also tell us what the side dish is. It also looks delicious?

    • Cindy Sexton says:

      @ tim – the side dish is basically sauteed mushrooms, red onion and red peppers in coconut oil. For extra flavour sprinkle with sea salt and pepper or other spices! enjoy!

  2. Nathan says:

    I used bison and was really good, much better than when I made w/regular ground beef.
