It is well known in my group of friends that I am a little OBSESSED with burgers. When ever I am travelling I like to hunt out a burger, if there are no gluten free buns, I wrap it in a lettuce leaf assuming there are no breadcrumbs in the patty of course) and chow down.
The great thing about gluten free burgers, is you can usually switch out the meat and herbs, and create a range of different rissoles.
The ingredients can be added for as many rissole’s as you need… You need to make sure they are not to runny so use gluten free bread crumbs to bind.
This recipe is great on the bbq, cooked in a pan or in the oven. I like to make up a big batch and freeze them. Its great knowing exactly what goes into your meals.
- 1 Packet of Premium Beef Mince (lamb, turkey, pork or chicken is nice too)
- 2 Tablespoons of Tomato Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Garlic
- 1/2 tsp Coriander
- 1/2 tsp Chilli
- 1 Egg
- 1 Splash of Gluten Free Soy Sauce.
- Gluten Free Breadcrumbs or a little Corn or Rice Flour (add enough so you can form it into balls or patties, so it is not to sloppy, and they stick together.
Mix all of the ingredients up in a bowl, take the ball of meat and throw down into the bowl, the aim here is to activate the fats and warm them up, this will help your rissoles hold together.
Measure out even patties using a 1/2 cup measurement or ice cream scoop to keep them all a uniform size. Roll into balls and pop into the fridge for 30 minutes (this will also help them hold together).
From here you can either You can either freeze them as is or cook them up for your next bbq.
This is a fantastic recipe for summer, great in burgers or with a salad or gluten free wrap!
How I served mine
I assemble mine in a lettuce wrap and serve with a paper towel – for drips. On the side a little corn or perhaps some fries are perfect, depending on if you are going for heavy or light.
- Wash iceberg lettuce leafs and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Caramelize some onions in a little butter with some salt .
- Mustard, Tomato Sauce, Mayo
- And if you want to take it to the text level – BACON!… there is always room for bacon!
Now all I need is a nice red wine to have with mine 🙂
