Lettuce Wrapped Hamburgers – they make it all worth while!

I absolutely love home made hamburgers. They are a cheap and economical way to feed your family Paleo and they are a true comfort food to boot. Because the hamburger patty is so thick and juicy you don’t miss the bread at all. Especially if you have a few oven baked sweet potato fries on the side.

INGREDIENTS (for the beef burgers)

. 500 g grass fed beef mince
. 1 egg
. 1 medium onion, very finely diced
. 1 tspn garlic powder
. 1 tspn dried thyme (or any Italian herb combo)
. Large pinch salt and pepper

METHOD

1. Mix all ingredients together and divide mixture into four
2. Shape into patties and place on a plastic lined baking tray. Refrigerate for 30 min
3. Fry in a little olive oil until cooked to your liking
4. Place patty on top of lettuce leaf and layer your choice of salad ingredients and condiments and then cover with another large leaf. I used tomato, avocado, beetroot, mayonnaise and tomato sauce.

Oh and I melted some cheese onto my patty, my bad? I’m about to embark on a Whole 30 soon so I won’t be able to have those small indulgences for a while 🙂 Served alongside orange and white sweet potato chips baked in the oven, this was a really great dinner.
