    Summer is upon us and that usually means lots of barbecues and fun social gatherings involving food. Being on a gluten-free diet doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite All-American foods. The following recipe is for All-American gluten-free hamburgers. The recipe is easy and the results are delicious. Try it for yourself!

    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.


    Happy Eating!

    Hi Chris, Thank you for your comments. You are correct that the buns are typically the problem with eating gluten-free burgers. However there are so many gluten-free bread/buns options these days, that finding one is relatively easy. Finding gluten-free hamburger patties is another matter, and fillers are a concern for the hamburger patty itself. You do need to be careful that the hamburger patty wasn't made with wheat flour, as it often is used as a thickening agent to hold the meat together like glue. Take care and eat well. ~Destiny

    Fine recipe, however I clicked on it because I thought maybe it included a recipe for the buns. I've tried several of the gluten-free breads and the English muffins. They do not resemble regular bread products. They do not even hold together. Sometimes I toast a slice of the gluten-free English muffin and have it under the sandwich filling, making an open-face sandwich . Mostly I eat my homemade hamburgers without the bread. Tuna, chicken salads I have on a leaf of lettuce. Another issue is that these bread products are ridiculously expensive. $8.99 for a small loaf of bread substitute in my local supermarket.

  • About Me

    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.
