Bunless Burgers

As one of the most basic Paleo dishes, the bunless burger is a testament to simplicity. High in protein, low in carbs (there’s actually no carbs!) and budget friendly, the bunless burger is a Paleo go-to if there ever was one!

Although usually made with ground beef, feel free to mix things up once in awhile with any variety of ground meat including chicken, turkey or lamb.  Serve this burger with your favorite veggies and Paleo sauces or dips or toss it on top of any of our wonderful salads.  For variety, make a wrap with with large leafy greens from Swiss chard, collard greens or kale or you can bake up some Paleo Burger Buns if you have a hankering for the “real thing”!
