A few months ago Schar were kind enough to send me a huge box of their new range products; Viennese Whirls, Chocolate Chip Buns, their new Sourdough and their American Style Burger Buns.
Now if you have burger buns, how can you not make burgers to go in them!! Thank you Schar for giving me an excuse to make a whole load of burgers.
When it comes to living with allergies, in the beginning it can be difficult to find foods that are quick, easy and tasty but burgers are one of my go to quick dinners, show stopper BBQ editions and lunchbox fillers. Burgers are fantastic hot or cold and so versatile. You can make them out of practically any mince meat and get creative with herbs and spices galore! What’s more it is incredibly easy to make them gluten free, dairy free and egg free! They could be top 14 allergy free if you wanted, not to mention low-FODMAP.
I’ll have more burgers recipes coming your way because I just love to experiment and as I said they are such a great meal for those with allergies. Last time it was Lamb Burgers with a side of Spring Greens this time i went for something a bit spicier and what a treat to have burger buns to go with.
These buns are packed for long life in sets of 2, ideal if its just one or two of you eating gluten free. I personally love to toast my burger bun to add a crunchy side. These buns grilled really well. The flavour was just a plain burger bun which was great because then you can add condiments and any flavour of burger! Sky’s the limit!
So lets get cooking!
Gluten Free Rosemary and Mustard Burgers with Schar American Style Burger Buns
Perfect for a summer BBQ or to enjoy for dinner any day of the week!
If you need egg-free, simply omit the egg from this recipe, I promise it’ll taste just as good.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 13 minutes
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp (dollop of) yellow mustard (make sure its gluten free!)
- 3 tsp paprika
- 1.5 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
- 1/ tsp cumin powder
- 1 kg lean beef steak mince
- 4 Schar Gluten Free Burger Buns
Turn your grill on and let it heat to high and prepare you grill rack. (*Tip: use some fold to cover the bottom of the tray to make washing up easier.)
In a bowl beat the egg, mustard and dried spices, herbs, salt and pepper. Beat until it has all been evenly mixed and there are no lumps of powder.
Now add the beef mince. Use your hands to bring the burger mix together so that the beef is covered in your seasoning. Now a handful of mince and flatten into a burger shape.
Place your burger onto you grill rack. Continue to make burgers until all the mince has been used up. You should make about 10 burgers.
Now place your burger filled grill rack right under the grill.
Grill for 8-13 minutes on the first side and then turn over and grill the second side for a further 8-10 minutes. If you want rare burgers, cook for 8 minutes on each side. If you would like more well done, cook for longer on each side. Make sure the burger is piping hot in the centre, even if you are having it rare.
Now slice your burger buns in half and place under your grill to toast the inside of the buns. Grill for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
Now it’s time to serve up! You could have a simple burger in a bun, or why not adding some mustard or tomato chutney?
