I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.

Gluten-Free Classic All  American Hamburgers (makes 4 1/4 lb. Patties)

Ingredients:
  • 4 gluten-free hamburger buns
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef or ground chuck (use grass-fed beef if available)
  • 2 tbsp. gluten-free Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 tbsp. potato starch
  • 3/4 tsp. salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp. black pepper (or to taste)
Toppings:
  • Leaf lettuce
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced red onion
  • Pickles
  • Cheddar cheese (or cheese substitute)
  • Gluten-free Ketchup
  • Gluten-free Mustard
  • Gluten-Free Mayonnaise
*Before you begin, you can also substitute beef with gluten-free ground turkey.
Combine all hamburger ingredients in a mixing bowl, you can use your hands but make sure they are clean. Cover and let sit in refrigerator at least 30 minutes and up to four hours. When ready to cook, divide the meat into four equal parts and form into 1/2 inch thick patties. Grill over high heat (450°-500°), about 3-4 minutes on each side, rotating 45° halfway through. Place the cheese slices on the burgers when they have about 30 seconds left on the grill.
Pull the burgers off the grill and let sit for about a minute. Build your hamburger with your favorite condiments and toppings and enjoy! For a complete meal, serve with a side salad, and gluten-free french fries.

Gluten-free buns are everywhere, and there are some really good options available. Buying gluten-free buns is as easy as getting online and placing an order.
