“If life were predictable it would cease to be life,
and be without flavor.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Mix It Up
On a healing diet, I cook a LOT of burgers, so to keep from getting bored, I like to mix up the flavors a bit. Mickey at Autoimmune Wellness gave me the idea with her herb burgers. The herb version below is a variation on hers, using dried herbs instead of fresh (sadly, I have no herb garden). She eats her burgers for breakfast, but they’re delicious any time of day, and would make a perfect addition to your Fourth of July BBQ. In my Paleo Road Trip article, I mentioned that I also pack these for the road, because they taste great cold and make a filling course for your roadside picnic.
In addition to the herb version, I created two more: Italian and Garlic/Onion. Feel free to experiment with other combinations. Just because we sacrifice the bun, doesn’t mean we sacrifice the flavor!
More Flavor Variations
Update: As the paleo AIP community has grown, store-bought spice blends and condiments are now available. Convenience food on the autoimmune protocol is a true gift!
