Herb-Infused Burgers

Ingredients

2 lb. ground turkey, buffalo, chicken or beef (or any combination of these)

1/4-1/3 cup chopped fresh herbs (basil, chives, rosemary or thyme)

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 cup crushed gluten-free cereal (Rice or Corn Chex, Corn Flakes) or gluten-free breadcrumbs

1 egg, lightly beaten

Salt and pepper

Optional Additions:

Sliced tomatoes

Sliced avocado

Leaf lettuce

Other favorite burger toppings

Directions

Prepare the grill or turn on the oven broiler. In a mixing bowl, place meat, herbs, lemon juice, crushed cereal or gluten-free breadcrumbs, egg, salt and pepper. Mix until well-combined. Divide into 8 equal portions and shape into patties. Place on a heated grill or on broiler pan and place in the oven (about 2-3 inches from heat). Cook burgers 8-10 minutes, until well-browned (not blackened). Turn burgers 2-3 times for even cooking. Serve burger open-faced on flax focaccia bread or other gluten-free bun. You may also serve it without a bun and with a side of steamed greens, a salad and/or 1/4 - 1/2 cup of cooked wild rice, quinoa or other whole grain.
