Juiciest Tastiest Best Bunless Burger Ever

Juiciest Tastiest Best Burger Ever www.eatcleanlivesimple.com

 

I love me some meat. Red delicious juicy meat.  And every now and again you need a good burger. One that melts in your mouth with flavor and you can say, dang that was good. However, now that the husby and I went fully gluten-free after the 21-day Standard Process Purification Program, we no longer eat bread. So a bunless burger has to be pretty much orgasmic all on its own because it is naked after all. But I can tell you from a girl who loves her burgers, when you make this burger, I don’t miss the buns at all and I love it naked!

I used bison, mainly because I got a heck of a deal at Kroger on ground bison that was about to expire, so I stocked my freezer with some good bison meat. But you could also use ground beef. We don’t have a grill but with my cast iron skillet, I actually prefer to grill on that anyways for a juicy finish. You can pretty much top this with whatever fixin’s tickle your pickle, but for me you can never go wrong with bacon. I love bacon. I would eat bacon with every meal if I could. Seriously, I am a bacon freak. But I also love to top this with sautéed mushrooms, onions, garlic, and avocados for a delicious combination of flavors that is seriously the Juiciest Tastiest Best Burger Ever!

While my bacon was baking in the oven, I chopped all my fixin’s and heated 1 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Added the garlic and let that cook for about a minute before adding the onions and mushrooms.  Once those were done I set them aside until my burgers were finished.

To make the burgers, I mixed my ground bison with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and formed 4 patties from my pound of meat. Then in my cast iron skillet on medium heat I cooked these bad boys for 3 minutes on each side and added sharp cheddar cheese. After they were done I removed them from heat and served them over a bed of lettuce from our CSA Week 3 Share.  Then I topped them with all my fixin’s to make them Ahh-mazing.
