Did you know that May is National Hamburger Month? Hamburgers have long been one of my favorite foods, but now that I am avoiding carbs, if I want to eat hamburgers this month I have to find alternate ways to do so. The following are 11 recipes for hamburgers without buns, hamburgers with alternatives to buns that are low or no carb, and hamburger alternates. (I also don’t eat cheese with my burgers, so please ignore any cheese in the below photos!)

Good Old Grilled Hamburgers via The Unrefined Kitchen

Tomato Buns via The Yum Yum Diaries

Lettuce Bun Turkey Burger via

Lamb Burgers with Portobello “Buns” via The Paleo Foodie Cookbook

Buns 4 - Fixed

Grain-free Hamburger Buns via Against All Grain

Hamburger Salad via Veronica’s Cornucopia

Hamburger Veggie Soup via Cherished Bliss

Paleo Hamburger Pie via Beauty and the Foodie

Do any of these sound good to you?

I eat carbs, but not usually at dinner (well shabbat is my exception!). I love cutting up a hardy veggie burger and making it a topping on a salad. Also - the Daiya cheese melts great for burgers apparently!

Huge fan of burgers here and always looking for ways to cut down on the carbs though. Think my favorite is the portobello buns ;)

Now I'm hungry.

I like that tomato slices as a bun idea!

They all sound good, but the soup might be my favorite.
My friend is a nutritionist and she claims that grass fed beef is a super food and that we just mess it up with cheese, bread and other stuff.

Wrapped in lettuce! What a fantastic idea!!

Dara said...

I really love the hamburger salad idea! and daiya cheese is totally yummy, just a bit expensive!

Dara said...

that's my least favorite, since I hate mushrooms! lol.

Dara said...

I like it too, but I wonder how messy it would be!

Dara said...

I'm definitely going to have to try the soup at some point.

Dara said...

yes! I had a hot dog in lettuce the other night and it wasn't bad at all.

I only eat hamburgers anymore wrapped in lettuce. I've gotten to the point that I prefer them that way.

I believe it's what's for dinner tonight!
