Ohhh I love paleo recipes!  Make sure to check out Paleomg.com! This chick has some great ones!!  These are come of my favs!

I made this the other night.  I would leave off the avacodo topping next time.  It overpowers the taste of the burgers.  But the burgers are SOOOO yummy!!!

 

Pineapple Stuffed Chorizo Burgers
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 40 mins
Serves: 4-5
 
Ingredients

  • 1 pound chorizo
  • 0.5 pounds ground beef
  • ½ of a whole pineapple
  • 1 sweet potato or yam, thinly sliced
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of ½ a lime
  • juice of ½ a lemon
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. First, get the pineapple ready. Cut the pineapple in half. Cut off the end, then slice the sides off (you are just trying to get rid of the hard skin). Once the skin is off, cut slices of the pineapple into ¼ inch slices (thin enough to place insides a burger). Use your knife to cut out a circle in the middle of your pineapple slice to remove the hard core. You will need 4-5 slices.
  3. Now place the thinly sliced sweet potatoes or yam in a bowl along with the thin pineapple. Coat with coconut oil and a sprinkle of salt. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, baking sure not to overlap. Put in oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping half way through. The pineapple way cook a bit quicker and you may need to remove it before the sweet potatoes.
  4. While that is cooking, place the chorizo and ground beef in a bowl and mix well. Use the mixture to make 8 equal size balls. You could make 10 (to create 5 burgers) but they might not hold together as well. Flatten balls out into patties.
  5. Then you’ll want to make the avocado topping. Cut avocados in half, remove pits, and use a spoon to scoop out the avocado. Place in a food processor along the the lime, lemon, cayenne pepper, and a bit of salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.
  6. Once the pineapple is done cooking, let cool then place on top of one of your patties, place the second patty on top and use your fingers to seal up the burger, pinching the edges a few times. The more you make sure it is closed up, the better they will stick together when you cook them. Repeat with all burgers. Salt both sides of your burgers.
  7. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a couple tablespoons of bacon fat to the pan. Once the pan is extra hot, add the burgers to the pan, making sure not to crowd the pan so you get a nice crust on the burgers. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
  8. Once burgers have cooked on both sides, place in the oven either in your skillet or on a baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes.
  9. When burgers on done, place on top of a stack of sweet potato slices, then top with the avocado puree.

DH’s Fav:

OP, you said you’re trying homemade gaucamole…I make the best! Use these tips. πŸ˜‰

Use fresh cilantro – more than you think you need.

Use fresh lime juice – and use the pulp too.

Put a little salsa in your gauc – it gives it great flavor.

 

These recipes are making my mouth water!

Yay! This is awesome. I’m always trying new recipes, but here are some yummy ones that I go back to:
Eggplant Parmesan (I added some italian seasoning and garlic to the almond flour batter): http://healthycoconutblog.com/2011/01/15/eggplant-parmesan/

Peppermint Patties (made these in a muffin tin with muffin liners, and found the best way was to put a layer of chocolate, freeze for a minute, put the coconut oil mixture, freeze again, and then finally another layer of chocolate!): http://www.elanaspantry.com/peppermint-patties/

Bacon Wrapped Rosemary Sliders: http://paleomg.com/bacon-wrapped-rosemary-breakfast-sliders/

No-Grain Granola (I add a little vanilla and more cinnamon than the recipe calls for): http://paleoparents.com/2011/grain-free-granola/

Creamy Crockpot Chicken and Tomato Soup: http://rivernorthpaleo.blogspot.com/2012/03/creamy-crockpot-chicken-and-tomato-soup.html?m=1

I tend to make frittatas, julienned zucchini noodles cooked in garlic or basil olive oil, and carne asada a lot as well.

I’m also gonna take a moment to just wax on poetic about paleo/primal and how much I love eating this way. I’ve seriously never felt better or happier! I have eaten vegan, vegetarian, and typical SAD, but none have compared and I honestly didn’t think I would be able to stick to it for so long (I’ve been eating this way for four months now). I was hosting a party on Saturday for a friends birthday and decided to partake of some slices of bread, which invariably led to me waking up at 3am to puke! It’s just so interesting how grains and sugar effect my body now. And on top of just feeling awesome, I’ve lost close to 15 lbs and my body composition is changing, so even if I am not going down on the scale, I feel and look thinner. Eep, I love it and plan to make this my lifestyle!

@Miss Sardine:  Congratulations on the weight loss and other improvements! I’ve found that acne is basically gone nowadays, except right before my period. And even then, it’s one or two small blemishes that are easily hidden. Good luck staying on track and I hope you continue to enjoy it!

Girls, i just want to put it out there that if you are new to paleo, please remember that just because a treat is paleo you can’t go more crazy with it than you would have on a SAD diet. A lot of people make that mistake and it doesn’t help to deal with issues you might have with sugar addiction. Also, things breaded in almond flour shouldn’t be an everyday thing as a. cooking almond flour does some not entirely ideal things to it and b. it can really stall weight loss. I am not meaning to be harsh, just sometimes all the paleo cooking blogs make it look like they eat these treats daily and stay super slim when, in fact, they don’t. 

We’re paleo and I have so many recipes to share but don’t have time right now, I will come back later to share though πŸ™‚

@MrsHRC:  Very much agree that portion control is still necessary.

 

I make a paleo sweet potatoe casserole.

Sweet potatoes grated with food prcessor

Onion

cajun seasoning

ground turkey

Chili seasoning

Any seasoning you want.

I cook the turkey on the stove top and cook the hashbron in the oven at 425. Then mix in the turkey. I cut a square and serve it with egg…..scrambled for my Dirty Delete and over easy for me.

You can personalize this any way you want….throw some chopped peppers in the hashbrowns…etc

Its great for breakfast or dinner.
