we found this recipe via whole foods, but made a few modifications to make it 100% gluten free deliciousness. these are so insanely good with buffalo, our red meat of choice in the house. super low on calories, a great protein, and fantastic for burgers. if using gluten free toast like we did, be sure to form your patties a bit smaller than you typically would. we served ours with dulcet moroccan mustard to give it a little extra kick at the end. enjoy!
3/4 pound grass-fed buffalo
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
2 ounces sharp cheddar, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 tablespoon gluten free Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded peeled Granny Smith apple
4 gluten free hamburger buns (or 8 slices toast)
gluten free mayonnaise
combine beef, onion, cheddar, mustard, salt, pepper and apple in a large bowl and form into four (4-inch) patties. grill over medium heat or broil, flipping once, until done to your taste, 6 to 8 minutes. or, spray a large skillet with cooking spray and cook over medium heat, 6 to 8 minutes.
