Meat Loaf Burgers

I have never been much of a fan of meatloaf for most of my life. I did once have meatloaf at a potluck that was fabulous, and I’ve tried lots of different recipes trying to duplicate that one.  One of the things I really dislike is meatloaf with a rubbery texture. Over the years, I learned in order to avoid that rubbery texture, it was necessary to use bread crumbs, or oatmeal. Well, of course with GAPS, those items are not legal, so I decided to try my main substitute for baked goods, almond flour.

And with this addition, I’ve learned to make these burgers that taste much like that meatloaf I had many years ago. Here is my recipe.

Meat Loaf Burgers

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup green bell peppers chopped finely
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3 tablespoons Prunotto Organic Tomato Puree
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter or your favorite GAPS legal fat

Mix all ingredients together. Form into patties.  Melt butter in a cast iron skillet until bubbly.  Cook burgers on one side for 10 minutes at medium low heat.  On my stove 5 is medium, so I cook these on 4.  Flip and cook for 10-15 minutes until done. You may want to cook at an even lower heat if you are trying to avoid dark browning of the meat.

I served these with steamed cabbage and a red sauce (think spaghetti substitute).

Makes 8 patties.

    Thanks for your recipe. I am excited to try it sometime. I also wanted to let you know that there are some ways to get organic fruit and vegetables without having to pay so much for it. Sometimes they also list farmers markets in the area as well. I also eat more when I have anxiety.

    I enjoy your thoughts and ideas. You are very insightful.

    Hi Olga, you are welcome! I really like burgers made this way. My husband says they taste “institutional” and won’t eat them which is just fine by me as he can’t tolerate any kind of peppers (even bell peppers) so I just make him regular burgers and make these special ones for me. Thank you for the link to I will check and see if there is anything available in my area. I am glad to hear I am not the only one that eats more when anxious. Do you think it is taking a toll on our body and we are just needing more calories? That would be nice. :-) Thank you for the nice compliment, Olga.

    I made this tonight. I substituted quinoa flour for the almond flour and added garlic powder to the mix. I thought it was very good! I’ll definitely be making it again.
