Tonight I made our favorite meal, Burgers! When Ashley began eating gluten free she hadn’t realized what she was giving up. She was crushed because she realized she was giving up burgers. She didn’t know if she could do it (when we first started out we had a ton of gluten free stuff and I missed my usual snacks, so when I was at work or running errands I would often pick up a burger and then a pack of gum to hide the evidence! I know I’m awful.).However it wasn’t long till Ashley found a way for us to make
homemade GF burgers and with GF buns. We were saved! We found out that you can use GF rolled oats. We use the big box you can get at Costco. Oats are naturally gluten free yet the Quaker box we get has the potential of being contaminated. Be very careful of this if you have celiac disease. The food product must be certified gluten free and clearly have it marked. Udi’s GF Burger Buns are the best out there in our opinion. And it’s very important to always toast GF bread! and then keep it stored in the freezer for it to keep (I’ll post more on this topic).
The recipe is basic enough, and maybe that’s why I like it, but it’s a keeper!
Gluten Free Burgers
1lb ground beef
1/2 c GF rolled oats
1/4 c amazing dad’s BBQ sauce (Honey Bunny) any flavor
1/2 tbs onion and garlic powder
pepper and salt to taste
Optional (but highly recommended!)
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 c kale, washed and finely chopped
few shakes of Woodland Natural Hickory Liquid Smoke Flavor (the best part)
Preheat oven 400 degrees, cook time 20- 25 mins
Add all ingredients together and make into patties (or meat balls or meat loaf) place on shallow pan with tin foil. Pour more BBQ sauce on top for more flavor. Serve on top of Udi’s Gluten free burger buns
Love to hear how yours turn out! Enjoy and may the GF be with you
