Making a juicy burger is always a treat, especially with summer and grilling season upon us. But plain ‘ol hamburgers get a little boring, so I thought I would spice things up by making them low-amine Cajun Burgers and serve them up hot with caramelized onions. Delicious!

1 lb lean ground beef

1 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning Mix

1 1/2 Tbsp gluten-free breadcrumbs

1/4 tsp salt

2 Tbsp egg whites, beaten

1 Tbsp safflower oil

1 large sweet onion

2 Tbsp butter (or butter substitute for dairy-free)

3 gluten-free hamburger buns (depending on size of bun and whether you like your burgers super thick or “normal” patty thickness)

Condiments of choice: low-amine no-tomato ketchup substitutelow-amine no-tomato BBQ sauce substitutelow-amine mayonnaise

  • Mix beef, Cajun Seasoning Mix, breadcrumbs, salt, egg whites, and safflower oil together in a bowl. Knead until well mixed.
  • In a cast iron pan, heat butter and add sweet onion cut into “C” shaped rings.

  • On low heat, cook onions slowly and stir often to slowly caramelize. When caramelized, set aside and turn grill on high.
  • Turn grill to medium high and form beef into burger patties about 5″ across.
  • Grill until desired doneness. Flip burger when patty unsticks from grill easily – you should not have to scrape it off the grill, as the natural oils will allow the burger to “let go” of the grill when it’s ready.
