Making a delicious paleo burger is actually super easy, and it still tastes incredibly good. It’s also pretty healthy with most of the typical unhealthy ingredients being removed such as cheese and bread.
In this recipe instead of a regular bread bun, we will be using a couple of Portobello mushrooms. These delicious mushrooms only require a lightly bit of grilling and make for an amazing replacement for the burger bun.
You will also enjoy all the typical components of a good burger including an incredibly meaty burger with lettuce, bacon, tomato, avocado and anything else that’s great.
If you want a classic burger meal, then you should certainly cook up some tasty sweet potato fries to go with this dish. Keep in mind that the fries will add a few carbs to your meal, but you could always make the burger smaller to compensate for this.

Paleo Burger Recipe
- 500g (17 ½ oz.) ground beef or pork
- 1 egg
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 Tbsp. parsley, chopped
- 2 tsp. garlic, crushed
- Salt & pepper
- Portobello Mushrooms x 2 (Per Burger)
- Red onion
- Baby spinach
- In a bowl, place the ground beef, egg, onion, parsley, garlic and salt & pepper. Mix until well combined.
- Now form into beef burgers, I find 2 Tbsp. is usually enough mix to make one large burger.
- In a frying pan, add about 1 Tbsp. of a paleo friendly fat. Personally, I use either coconut oil or lard.
- Once hot, add the burgers & bacon and cook to your liking. Meanwhile, grill the Portobello mushrooms for 5 minutes on each side.
- Assemble the burgers with one Portobello mushroom facing down then the baby spinach, avocado, the burger, bacon and then finally the other Portobello mushroom facing upwards.
- The avocado works both well either mashed or sliced. Personally, I prefer it sliced. You can also turn it into guacamole instead. If you do end up doing this, then you can probably leave the red onion out as well.
- Something like the baby spinach can be swapped out for any leafy greens or even just left out completely. I prefer baby spinach in almost all of my meals.
- The burgers should hold together just fine. If you find that they’re starting to fall apart, then you may not have worked the mixture enough. Also, try and resist the urge to play with the food in the pan. You should find if you’re cooking at the right temperature you will only need to flip once or twice.
