Who doesn’t love Burgers? There are endless ways to make them… Turkey, Beef, Bison, Ostrich or even Alligator, not to mention 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. This particular Burger is a classic savory burger with a little bit of a Ranch kick to it (my current obsession)! I created this burger when doing a Whole30 needing something tasty and fun yet still meeting the Whole30 requirements and fell in love with it.
Many experimentations went into making this burger. The biggest challenge was finding a grain free substitute for breadcrumbs. After a few other failed experiments I tried using Almond Flour and I have been using Almond Flour ever since! I have tested it making countless burgers, to include turkey burgers, I found that it works great at not only holding your burger together but it absorbs the juices nicely without drying out your burger, which is critical in the perfect burger.
One last, but very important trick to making a good burger is to cook it 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 cooking fast. Duck Fat is a healthy substitute for butter and oils. It gets nice and hot quickly while adding those extra nutrients to your burger. I have also found that Avocado Oil works nicely as well. Either on would be amazing for cooking that perfect burger!
