We love hamburgers in my family. Now that we are grain free, I thought serving it in a bowl without the bun would be the easiest way for the younger kids (and adults) to eat and enjoy. I was right! This recipe is a fun way to serve hamburgers, especially if you are grain free.
1 lb ground beef
1 cup cheddar cheese (*see comment below if making patties)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (*see comment below if making patties)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
In a large bowl combine beef, cheddar cheese, bbq sauce, onion and garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are combined. In a large skillet, cook the beef mixture on medium heat until beef is no longer pink in the middle (about 10-15 minutes). Once the meat is cooked, serve in bowls and add desired toppings.
You could also make the beef mixture into patties (I used a medium sized lid that belonged to one of my glass jars, to shape my patties). If you would like patties instead, I would recommend using 80/20 beef. If the beef is really lean, the burgers will fall apart. Cook the patties in a large skillet on the stove until the beef is no longer pink in the middle, making sure to cook each side evenly. Serve with desired toppings.
Either way you choose will be great because it a simple and delicious recipe. Enjoy!
*UPDATE: If you are going to be making hamburger bowls this will not make a difference but if you would like patties I would suggest using 20/80 beef as well as 1/2 cheese instead of 1 cup and 1/4 cup BBQ sauce instead of 1/2 cup.
