Before I began my low FODMAP journey, I used to absolutely love going out for burgers.Even if it was to the dodgiest burger joint, I just love the whole experience of eating a burger – that first flavourful bite, getting sauce and mustard allover your hands, the salty chips. So when I found out I needed to go on the lowFODMAP diet, I was pretty disheartened by how difficult it was to find a burger to fit my needs. Gluten free buns is one thing, but what about a patty with no onion or garlic, or a good substitute for all those condiments I had to remove?
Well, I’ve addressed all those issues here, with a burger you can make and enjoy in your very own home: my low FODMAP beef burger. Supermarkets offer so many amazing gluten free burger buns options these days (including brioche buns, which is my jam), so that’s a good start. Then add a juicy, flavoursome beef patty, some carefully selected fillings and condiments, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a meal.
You’re not going to want to skip any of the wet ingredients for the patty. We want the mixture to be nice and wet so that they don’t dry out when we cook them.
I would also recommend cooking the patties on one side until browned, and then after you flip them to cook the other side, placing your slice of low FODMAP cheese on top so it has a chance to melt.
This recipe is also super customisable, so feel free to add in any of your favourite lowFODMAP burger additions – I just went with my standard go-tos, but the choice is yours! I think it pairs perfectly with some crispy homemade fries (cut up a potato into wedges, spray the wedges with oil and season with salt and pepper before baking in the oven for around 30 minutes) and a refreshing gluten free beer.
If you’ve got leftovers, I would recommend storing all your burger ingredients separately to avoid things going soggy. Cooked patties will last in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 days – just make sure you re-heat it thoroughly all the way through before eating!
