Cooking perfect Gluten-Free Burgers

Get your grill smokin’ hot and let’s get cooking the best gluten-free burgers you will ever have!

Step 1: Prep the onions, garlic, and lettuce

Chop ½ Onion finely and mince 2 Garlic cloves. Cut some tomatoes to add as toppings for later. Rinse and dry the lettuce leaves that you’ll be using as a substitute for buns.

Step 2: Combine ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 pound ground beef, salt (1 tsp), black pepper (½ tsp), gluten-free Worcestershire sauce (1 tbsp), and any other substitutions or vegan options if needed. The secret ingredient to make these burgers stand apart is adding ¼ cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Mix well with the help of a fork or your hands until evenly combined.

Step 3: Form the Patties

Divide the seasoned minced beef mixture into four portions that are approximately the same size. Wet your hands slightly to prevent sticking, then form each portion into a ball and flatten it out to form a patty. Make an indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb so that they cook evenly on both sides.

Step 4: Cook the Burgers

Preheat your grill for at least five minutes before cooking. You can brush the cooking grates with olive oil to prevent sticking. Once heated, place patties on the grill grates and close the lid. Grill for about five minutes per side or until patties reach 160°F internal temperature.

Step 5: Assemble the Burgers

For an elevated flavor profile, add a slice of Swiss cheese or sharp cheddar on top of each patty, and let it melt slightly in the last minute of cooking. Take the patties off the grill and let them rest for a couple of minutes.

Directions to Serve

It’s time to serve these juicy and savory gluten-free burgers hot off the grill! Place your lettuce leaf on a plate and put your burger patty on top of it. Add some ketchup or mustard sauce as per your preference along with freshly chopped onions, tomatoes, and any other toppings that you like. You can also pair your burger with some oven-roasted potatoes or a salad for an equally satisfying meal.

Now that you know how to whip up these delicious gluten-free burgers, there’s no going back to regular burgers again!

Substitutions and Variations

When it comes to burgers, there are endless possibilities for substitutions and variations. For a vegan or vegetarian option, try swapping the ground beef for a plant-based patty like the Beyond Burger or even making your own veggie burger from scratch using ingredients like cooked long-grain rice, onion, cottage cheese, and egg.

If you’re looking to reduce your intake of red meat, ground turkey burger or bison burger are excellent alternatives that still provide great flavor and texture. For a healthier twist, consider using ground chicken in place of beef or mixing half beef and half pork to create a unique flavor combination.

To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute traditional flour with almond flour or another gluten-free flour. You can also use Worcestershire sauce that is labeled as gluten-free or substitute it with soy sauce.

For added flavor, try experimenting with different spices like smoked paprika or cumin. You can mix in some finely chopped onion or add garlic powder to enhance the overall taste of the burgers. Additionally, for an elevated experience, you can make tomato jam and use it as a topping for your grilled burgers.

Overall, don’t be afraid to get creative with your substitutions and variations. Whether it’s a vegan option or just trying out different spice blends, there’s always room for experimentation when it comes to creating the perfect burger recipe.

Well, my friends, once you’ve got your gluten-free grilled burgers all fired up and ready to chow down on, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect sides and toppings to serve alongside them.

For me, the classic burger toppings are always a winner. A fresh lettuce leaf, some juicy sliced tomatoes, and maybe even a few thin shreds of onion. These toppings will provide a cool and refreshing contrast to the rich, charred flavor of your burger.

But if you’re feeling more adventurous, there are plenty of other options available that can take your gluten-free burger game to the next level. One of my personal favorites is a homemade tomato jam. This sweet and spicy condiment makes for an amazing partner to the savory beef patty.

In terms of sides, there are no hard and fast rules. However, I would recommend keeping things relatively light and fresh. A crisp garden salad or some roasted vegetables (like peppers, zucchini or eggplant) would both be great choices.

If you want to keep things simple, don’t worry – sometimes all you need is a generous helping of crispy French fries or tater tots. Just make sure that they’re cooked in a dedicated fryer that has not been contaminated with any gluten-containing ingredients.

As for drinks, well it’s tough to go wrong with an ice-cold beer on a warm summer afternoon. But if you’re looking for something non-alcoholic (or if beer just isn’t your thing), there are plenty of other options available. Think lemonade, iced tea, sparkling water or even an herbal iced tea mocktail.

So there you have it – ideas aplenty for how to serve up your ultimate gluten-free burgers in style! With these tips in mind, you’re sure to impress your friends and family with your grilling prowess.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Now that your gluten-free grilled burgers are ready, you may be wondering what to do with any leftovers. Luckily, they can easily be stored and reheated for a delicious meal later on.

To store cooked burgers, simply let them cool to room temperature before placing them in an airtight container or ziplock bag. You can keep them in the fridge for up to four days, or freeze them for up to three months.

When reheating your burgers, there are a few methods you can use. The easiest way is to microwave them for 30 seconds to a minute on each side, or until heated through. You can also reheat them in the oven at 350°F for about five minutes, or on the stovetop over medium heat for two to three minutes per side.

If you want to save time on busy weeknights or prep for outdoor gatherings, you can also make the burger patties ahead of time and store them in the fridge for up to 24 hours before grilling. Or, consider grilling a large batch of burgers and then freezing extras for later use.

Finally, if you want to switch things up and try different types of burgers such as veggie burgers, bison burgers or chicken burgers, remember that you can adapt this recipe’s cooking instructions and ingredients accordingly. Just stick to gluten-free ingredients and give it your personal touch; experimentation is half the fun of cooking!

Now that you have the ingredients ready and the burger patties formed, it’s time to grill them to perfection. Here are some tips to help you get the best-tasting gluten-free burgers:

1. Use a meat thermometer: To ensure that your burger is cooked all the way through, use a meat thermometer to test for the internal temperature. Beef burgers should reach 160°F, while chicken or turkey burgers should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.

2. Preheat the grill: Make sure to preheat your grill before placing the burgers on it. A preheated grill ensures that the burgers are cooked evenly and don’t stick to the grill.

3. Oil your grill: Before placing your burgers on the grill, oil it with a paper towel dipped in olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. This will prevent sticking and make it easier to flip the burgers.

4. Don’t press down on your burger: Pressing down on your burger with a spatula releases all of its flavorful juices and dries them out. Resist the urge to press down on your burger while it’s cooking.

5. Let them rest: After you’ve removed the burgers from the grill, give them a few minutes to rest before serving them. This allows for the juices to redistribute and results in a juicier burger.

By following these simple tips, you can achieve perfectly grilled gluten-free burgers every time!


Now that you know the ins and outs of making scrumptious gluten-free grilled burgers, it’s time to answer some frequently asked questions about this recipe. I understand that as much as folks are excited to try out an amazing recipe like this, they may still have questions and concerns. Fear not! In this section, I will provide answers to some of the most common inquiries about this gluten-free grilled burgers recipe. FAQs have never been so delicious!

What can you use to bind burgers instead of breadcrumbs?

If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional bread crumbs in your cooking, you can try using panko, cracker or pretzel crumbs, crushed unsweetened cereal like cornflakes, or rolled oats. However, it’s worth noting that rolled oats should only be used as a substitute in meat mixtures like meat loaf and burgers.

Can hamburgers be gluten-free?

When it comes to a gluten-free diet for those with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, unprocessed beef that is purchased from a grocery store is considered safe for consumption. Moreover, if you avoid incorporating gluten-containing ingredients and cross-contamination, burgers made from 100% ground beef will also be gluten-free.

What makes a hamburger gluten-free?

If you plan on making homemade hamburgers with meat labeled as “100% ground beef,” you can rest assured that they are gluten-free. However, if you prefer to go out to eat and order pre-formed patties at a restaurant, it’s important to be aware that they may contain wheat. Additionally, you should also be cautious of imitation crab meat that is commonly found in prepared seafood salads and California-style sushi rolls since it may contain gluten.

What can you use instead of egg to bind hamburgers?

If you’re looking for a vegan egg replacement, simply mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 3 tablespoons of water together. After letting it sit for about 5 minutes, you’ll notice the mixture becoming thick and gel-like. This makes for a great binding agent in any recipe. Keep this healthy organic, gluten-free and dairy-free substitute on hand for all your cooking needs.
