Paleo Recipe - Burger

Friday Night Is Burger Night

Perhaps Friday is the most awaited day of the week for most, if not all people, including kids. It is the indication that the weekend is coming and you get to rest for two days before going back to reality, work or school activities once more. And for many people, Friday night is the best day to have a night out or a relaxing time at home and to try out some delicious Paleo diet recipes.

Who doesn’t get excited with Friday? It is a day when everyone can finally say the toxic week at work or at school is over. If you are someone who prefers to be home rather than out partying all night, then having a great dish for dinner can definitely be the best idea ever. And why not end the week with a flavorful Paleo Burger? This dish is definitely a great alternative to pizza or pasta and you can enjoy it alone, with friends, or with your family and kids.

But did I mention that it is a Paleo approved burger and you might be thinking, is it possible? Burgers are no fun without buns. But the buns that are usually used for burgers are definitely not Paleo. But if you carry out some research you’ll find there are plenty of resources that will provide you with Paleo recipes. There are so many ingredients you can use under the Paleo food list that can make a burger better and suitable for the diet. You can even make buns out of Paleo diet food ingredients and you may find that you like these buns even on their own.

If you are new to the Paleolithic diet, you might think that it is plain boring and you would have to abstain from the foods that you might have enjoyed as a kid (pizza, burger and ice cream, anyone?). In reality, the Paleo diet is a very flexible diet and its ingredients are not limited. Yes, organic is preferred in Paleo but it does not strictly require you to buy costly organic ingredients if you can’t since there are many Paleo approved alternatives that you can also choose from. There are some products that are both cheap, fresh and can still be organic. You may even grow some Paleo approved foods in your very own garden which slashes off a few dollars from your Paleo grocery list.

If you enjoy baking, Paleo has alternative choices on flours, sugar alternatives, and other baking ingredients. If you’re into chips, you can also enjoy it without minding the fats by making your own chips from Paleo foods. Though potatoes are not accepted on this diet, you can use sweet potatoes instead or some of the leafy veggies that you can come across on the Paleo food list. Chocolates are no problem, too, since the Paleo lifestyle approves dark chocolate. The list of foods you usually enjoy that can be turned Paleo friendly can go on. But for now, let’s start with this all-time favorite the burger.

Our delicious recipe for burger buns that you'll enjoy more than the ones you used to buy.
Ingredients
  • 5 Eggs
  • ¼ Cup (59 ml) Coconut Oil - Melted
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 ml) Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ½ Teaspoon (2.50 g) Salt to Taste
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 g) Baking Soda
  • ¾ Cup (175 g) Coconut Flour
Instructions
  1. • Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C) and prepare a baking sheet. I like to use a layer of parchment paper on mine on to which I’ve spread a small amount of olive oil.
  2. • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs well. Mix in the coconut flour and baking soda.
  3. • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. You should get a fairly thick batter.
  4. • Using a spoon, scoop 3 spoonfuls of the batter. Form into a ball then flatten. The result should look like a small pancake, only thicker.
  5. • Put your flattened batter on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the buns are lightly brown on top.
  6. • Let the buns cool before slicing them half. This can make 6-8 buns, so you can store the rest in the fridge.

Let’s Make the Paleo Friday Night Burger:

  • Cook your Paleo burger patties the way you usually do and set aside.
  • Slice the Paleo buns in half and place your cooked patties.
  • Throw in your favorite Paleo veggies and voila! You have a Paleo Friday Night burger that you will definitely enjoy!

Approved Paleo Food - Sweet Potato Chips

This Paleo style burger will surely become a Friday special for you and your loved ones. For the meat of your Paleo patty, grass fed or organic is preferred because it is leaner and has more protein and nutrients with less fat. You are also assured that the meat you will eat came from healthy animals. Though you can always go for cheaper meat, the health quality of the meat is not as high as grass fed. If you have no choice or grass-fed meat is not available, always look for the best and most lean meats possible. The leanest parts have the highest levels of protein and healthy fats.

Indeed, no matter what snacks you enjoy as a kid and as an adult, the Paleo diet will have an alternative you can enjoy and you won’t even be able to tell the difference (or it might even be tastier!). The Paleo diet is not only healthy, it can also bring you the freedom to enjoy the food you love without the guilt.
