When we took our mini trip to Las Vegas, I got a Groupon for a restaurant called Wild Burger. It took me weeks to plan that trip because I wanted to make sure we would be eating in healthy places. I looked up Wild Burger's website and saw they had gluten free options for their turkey burgers. VIOLA. I hit "purchase Groupon" quicker than you can count to one and when we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. This is where I learned that you can sub lettuce for buns! Wham Bam. I know I am probably behind the times, but anything that even hints that it tastes like a lettuce wrap is off my consumption radar. However, because of all the fixings in a lettuce burger, you can barely even taste the lettuce.
LONG STORY SHORT...
If you're on a low carb diet or unfortunately gluten intolerant...you should TRY IT!
I tried a tasty little concoction tonight. We had ground venison that did not want to stick in a patty...(if you're using a really lean meat, this can happen.) so, i took some raw milk cheese, shredded it, (Cause remember, pre shredded cheese is of the devil) and mixed it with my ground meat. It was surprisingly helpful.
The best part about all of this, is that you don't need a special recipe. You just need everything you'd use for a regular burger and omit the buns!! If I haven't enticed you to try it...here are some pictures to persuade.
