Bunless Burgers: Low-FODMAP Recipe

Mmm mm homemade burgers – simple to make, delicious, extremely versatile, and the best bit? You know exactly what’s gone into them. I have to admit I was shocked by the ingredients in shop bought versions – flour, additives, more additives…GAH! Why?! No thanks, none of that – just the good stuff. I used ingredients that I already had in – the result…paprika burgers topped with feta, tomato and chives – all the best recipes are random ones after all! 😉

FullSizeRender (2)Ingredients (makes 4 good sized burgers):
500g beef mince (or alternative mince)
Smoked paprika (or alternative seasoning)
1 tomato, sliced
Crumbled feta cheese
Chives
Drizzle of olive oil

1. Break up the mince meat and add any desired extras – in my case, paprika. Mix together well, and then divide into four equal portions. Create ‘burger’ shapes.
2. Pop the burgers on a baking tray in a foil parcel – drizzle with olive oil, and add any extras – in my case, sliced tomato. Into the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until cooked.
3. Pop the grill on, and add the burgers with the feta and chives – place under the grill for a couple of minutes until the feta has browned slightly.
4. Serve up with of sides choice – a side salad with some polenta chips, or potato salad, maybe? 🙂

Here’s some alternative low-FODMAP ingredients you could add…
Seasonings: Herbs (basil, mint, etc.), cumin, chilli.
Toppings: Sliced aubergine, pepper, mozzarella, camembert, cottage cheese, halloumi, olives.
Sauces: Mustard, mayonnaise.

Or you could always just have it as a conventional burger with a gluten-free bun – the options are endless!
