Homemade Burgers with M&S Gluten Free Burger Buns

Everyone loves a burger right? Whether it be a Chicken, Veggie or Beef burger, everyone has had one at some point in their lives. And for me they are an easy, tasty meal that are easily adapted to suit all of our needs and keep everyone happy! (We have some picky eaters!)

Since being Gluten Free I have fell for the trickery of certain restaurants stating that they do 'Gluten Free Burgers', but simply serving them without the bun and putting salad with it. No. That does not class as a Gluten Free Burger in my eyes. Why should we have to miss out!

I found these Gluten Free Burger Buns in Marks and Spencers last week and just had to buy them. I was worried that they would be dry and crumbly like some brands of Buns, but I was pleasantly surprised and they stayed in tact! Hurrah - Well done Marks and Spencers!!

And I don't know about you, but i can't eat a burger without a side of Sweet Potato Fries! It's taken me years to finally be able to make them without it taking an hour for them to crisp up in the oven. If you've got some rock salt, I would really recommend sprinkling some on the fries halfway through cooking for some extra crunch.

Ingredients. 

  • 750g 5% Fat Beef Mince.
  • Half a cup of Gluten Free Breadcrumbs.
  • 1 Egg.
  • Gluten Free Buns - I used Marks and Spencer's New Burger Buns.
  • 4 Sweet Potatoes.
  • Salt and Pepper.
  • 1 teaspoon of Paprika 
  • Coconut Oil.

  1. Slice up the sweet potatoes (Keep the skin on) and place on a microwavable bowl. Cover them with water and place in the microwave for about 5 minutes. 
  2. On a baking tray place the softened sweet potatoes and cover in melted coconut oil, salt, pepper and Paprika. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, until crispy. 
  3. In a large bowl, add in your mince, breadcrumbs, Egg and season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until they have formed together. Cut the mixture into 4 and mould into patties.
  4. In a frying pan, heat up a tablespoon of coconut oil. When melted, add in the burgers and turn periodically until cooked through, this usually takes about 10/15 minutes, depending on how well done you like your burgers. 
  5. Cut the buns in half, cover with mayo, lettuce, relish, or whatever your preference! Mine was served with a flat mushroom and garlic mayo! 
  6. Enjoy!
