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!

Nice recipe, but you miss the whole point of gluten-free hamburgers. It's the bun that is the problem, not the burger.

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

Why does gluten-free bread taste a bit off?

Yeah it's okay (the burger), just that the bun tastes different.
The bun is quite yuck (not hating!)

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.

I also hate gluten free bread. I say just eat the hamburger patty with a side of potato salad and a vegetable!

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
