    Celiac.com 09/04/2020 - We all love burgers, but sometimes we want the burger experience without all the carbs. That’s why these Hemingway-style burger bites are perfect for a relaxed summer afternoon!

    For anyone who thought pan-fried hamburgers could never be exciting, the great Ernest Hemingway shows us how it's done. We make a small deviation from his original by keeping the patties small, but still thick. Serve them skewered with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle for a perfect summertime burger treat. Don't forget to pour yourself a nice drink for the occasion.

    Hemingway's Ingredients:

    • 1 lb. ground lean beef
    • 2 cloves, minced garlic
    • 2 little green onions, finely chopped
    • parsley [sic]
    • 1 heaping teaspoon, India relish
    • 2 tablespoons, capers
    • 1 heaping teaspoon, Spice Islands Sage [sic]
    • ½ teaspoon Spice Islands Beau Monde Seasoning
    • ½ teaspoon Spice Islands Mei Yen Pepper**
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 egg, beaten in a cup with a fork
    • About ⅓ cup dry red or white wine
    • 1 tablespoon cooking oil

    Directions:
    Break up the meat with a fork and scatter the garlic, onion and dry seasonings over it, then mix them into the meat with a fork or your fingers. 

    Let the bowl of meat sit out of the icebox for ten or fifteen minutes while you set the table and make the salad. 

    Add the relish, capers, everything else including wine and let the meat sit, quietly marinating, for another ten minutes if possible.

    Now make four fat, juicy patties with your hands. [Here, we make eight patties, still thick]

    The patties should be an inch thick, and soft in texture but not runny. 

    Have the oil in your frying pan hot but not smoking when you drop the patties and then turn the heat down and fry the burgers about four minutes. 

    Take the pan off the burner and turn the heat high again. Flip the burgers over, put the pan back on the hot fire, then after one minute, turn the heat down again and cook another three minutes. 

    Both sides of the burgers should be crispy brown and the middle pink and juicy.

    Serve patties skewered with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle for a perfect summertime burger treat. Don't forget to pour yourself a nice drink for the occasion. 

    NOTES: 

    • **Mei Yen Pepper is basically 4 parts salt, 4 parts sugar, and 1 part MSG.
    • Bel Monde Spice seasoning is just Salt, Sugar, Onion Powder, and Celery Seed.

    Celiac.com 06/11/2019 - A potentially major breakthrough in celiac disease treatment owes at least part of its success to a simple drive-in hamburger from Seattle's beloved and legendary Dick's Drive-In.

    10/02/2019 - The Impossible Burger is a gluten-free veggie burger made from potato and soy protein. What sets the Impossible Burger from other veggie burgers is that it is made from a plant version of heme, a shorter name for leghemoglobin.
    Heme is an iron-containing molecule found in blood, and it's part of what makes meat taste meaty. However, the plant-based heme that helps give the Impossible Burger patty its beefy taste comes from the roots of a soy plant, instead of animal blood. 
    According to many reviewers, when cooked, the Impossible Burger can deliver what meat-lovers are looking for in a vegetarian burger patty -- the big beef ...
