Homemade Gluten Free Beef Burgers & Chippa Sauces Review

BTBS Gluten Free Beef BurgersIt's going to be warm half term this month, which usually means one thing in Britain: BBQ time! BBQs are great fun, but can also be a source of stress for anyone with specific dietary requirements.

Fortunately, many supermarkets are beginning to cater to specific dietary requirements, including allergies to gluten, egg and dairy. You can now find a range of breads, snacks and desserts in the free-from sections and in Sainsbury's and Morrison's you'll also find a great range of Chippa condiments, the UK's only free-from condiment range - all of which are gluten free and very tasty – perfect for adding to my homemade gluten-free burger recipe!

Homemade Gluten-Free Beef Burgers

Cook time: Less than 15 minutes

Makes 1 burger (simply double the ingredients as required to make more)

Homemade Gluten Free Beef Burgers
You will need:
  • 85g lean mince beef (turkey mince works well too)
  • 2 teaspoons of breadcrumbs – to make: take 1 slice of gluten-free bread, chopped into small squares and then add to a food processor or a blender attachment designed for grinding nuts
  • 1 pinch of garlic powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of of Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Chippa's Worcester Sauce.
  • 1 gluten-free burger bun – my favourite is free-from cook-at-home ciabatta bread (you can find these in the ‘free-from’ isles of most large supermarkets)
  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite Chippa sauce (mine is Chippa's May-O, but my partner chooses the Sweet Chilli sauce and my dad loves Chippa's brown sauce added to anything on the BBQ - especially sausages!)
  • To garnish the burger, you may like to use fresh salad leaves, grated carrot, red onion and even grilled mushrooms seasoned with parsley. Burgers are a great way to cram the veggies in! 
How to make:

Add the ground beef, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, Worcester Sauce, and Italian seasoning to a small bowl. Mix the meat and spices together with your hands. Form it into a burger around the size of your bun, I recommend using a large cookie-cutter for this.

If you have a fat-reducing grill, then simply cook the burger until there are no signs of pink and the burger is cooked all the way through. 

Alternately, cook the burger using a small griddle over medium-high heat, or use a BBQ (if the British weather allows!). Cook the burger for 3 to 5 minutes, flip it over after this time (any sooner and you may risk breaking up the burger), and cook it for an additional 3 to 4 minutes for a well-done burger. 

Place the burger on the bottom half of the bun and spread your chosen sauce on the top bun, then fill your burger with your chosen garnishes and enjoy!
