I’ve never made homemade burgers before, pretty much out of laziness. But this one is too easy not to try! And I generally have eaten my carbs during the day, so eating one of these bunless is just as good as with a bun…or so I tell myself. This is pictured with an Udi’s gluten free bun (hubs has Celiac’s).
Homemade beef burgers with red onion and pineapple:
2 lbs lean ground beef (95% or higher)
1.5 tsp smoked or reg paprika (I’ve made it both ways, both good)
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp sea salt (optional)
Pineapple slices – cored, fresh preferred
red onion slices
cheese slices to top (optional)
green lettuce leaf to wrap it in (optional)
Mix beef and spices together, form into 6 patties. Grill to desired doneness – I have cooked these on the griddle too and they came out well. Top with pineapple & onion (and cheese if desired).
21 day fixers – one burger equals 1 red, approximately 1/2 purple if you do the pineapple slice and 1/2 blue if you do the cheese. I don’t bother counting the red onion/lettuce leaf.
