Paleo Burger

So, I should have take a picture of this, but I didn’t, so you’re just going to have to trust that this is super tasty. Since we don’t eat grains anymore (at least most of the time) we haven’t had hamburgers for a long time, which is a shame, since they really are healthy for you despite what vegetarians might say. A friend mentioned that certain burger restaurants had protein style burgers where they just put lettuce on the ends of the burger, so I decided to try it out. I have a huge head of Iceberg lettuce that was just going to rot in my fridge, because we much prefer the taste of Romain lettuce, so I picked a few leaves off the head, which was much harder than I thought it would be, probably because it had been wrapped in cellophane. Then I made some super scrumptious burgers that were just delicious. Here’s the recipe.

Paleo Burger


  • 2 hamburger patties
  • 1-2 bell peppers, sliced thin
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked
  • 3/4 C shredded cheese
  • 1/4 C baby spinach
  • lettuce


  1. Cook the patties in a frying pan, adding salt and pepper.
  2. Add the peppers as soon as you're done slicing them.
  3. When the patties are cooked, place the on a plate, add a few pieces of spinach, and top with a small handful of cheese. Put the plate in a cold oven, and then turn the oven on.
  4. Heat bacon in the frying pan.
  5. When heated through, remove the bacon and peppers from the burner.
  6. When cheese is melted, remove from oven.
  7. Place lettuce on two plates, add patties, bacon, and peppers, then top with another lettuce leaf.
  8. Enjoy!
