Who doesn’t love Burgers? There are endless ways to make them… Turkey, Beef, Bison, Ostrich or even Alligator. Then there are the countless topping possibilities… Ketchup, BBQ Sauce, Ranch, Cheese, Bacon, Avocado, A1, Eggs, Fired Onion, Lettuce and the list goes on and on and on. For this particular Burger is a classic savory burger with a Ranch kick to it (my current obsession)! When I created this burger I was doing my first Whole30. I needed with more flavor, that was tasty while still being whole30 compliant. I am in love!!
Many different attempts went into making this burger. The biggest challenge was finding a grain free substitute for breadcrumbs and the right amount. After a few other failed tries I tried using Almond Flour and I have been using it ever since! We have been successfully using Almond Flour fro a while now with great success. It also works well for Turkey Burgers. Almond Flour works great at not only holding your burger together but it absorbs the juices nicely without drying out your burger. This is critical in the perfect burger.
One last, but very important trick…
You need to cook the burgers in a Cast Iron skillet! Make sure to pre-heat the skillet before placing the burgers in and make sure your skillet is oiled up. I typically use Duck Fat when making burgers. It works really well at getting those burgers a little bit crispy on the outside. Duck Fat is a healthy substitute for butter and oils. It gets nice and hot quickly while adding those extra nutrients to your burger. Don’t want to use Duck Fat? Avocado Oil perfectly as well. Whatever you use you will love this burger!!
