I always hear of people using a portobello mushroom as a vegetarian burger patty. It only seems appropriate to try it as the bun with a beef burger! Paleo style.
I also figured that adding homemade guacamole and nitrate free bacon would make it double awesome, and I was right.
I’ll give the ingredients for 1 burger so multiply as you wish!
2 portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1 all natural gluten free beef burger patty
2-3 slices tomato
2-3 slices nitrate free bacon, cooked
A healthy serving of homemade guacamole
a few rings of sliced red onion
BBQ both the portobello mushrooms (with stems removed) face down, as well as the burger patty. I found they take about the same amount of time, but keep an eye on the mushrooms and take them off when they suit your liking.
While those are on the BBQ, fry the bacon, prepare the homemade guacamole and slice the tomato and red onion.
Pile your mushroom high with your burger patty, bacon, sliced tomato, guacamole and red onion. Top with the other mushroom. Eat it like a regular burger, if you can fit it in your mouth!
You could try this with any other paleo friendly toppings too.
