Best Burger Recipe

The best burger recipe from The Paleo Kitchen is just one of over 120 brand new recipes in the book and I picked it to share. Want to know why, well honestly because it makes me want to eat the screen. I am hoping that is carries the same effect with you. That was on of my primary goals with the photography of this book. I want you to experience a euphoric taste bud experience just staring at the pages.

The book is over 340 pages and has everything you need to know from shopping lists, to tips of making cooking easier and even tear out guides to hang on your fridge to keep you on track.  There may be some pictures of me shoving cookies in my face on the pages too, so have a nice laugh.  I just remembered something even better, there is a video of me eating said cookies which I will show you later.

More Delicious Burger Recipes

Up until I was typing this post for the best burger recipe, I hadn’t realized my affinity for making burgers in general. I have learned a lot since my first burger and culminated the journey with this amazing recipe. Some of the other delicious burgers that served as research for this one are here:

Remember that video I talked about. The one where I stuffed 5 cookies in my mouth at once? I found it and now for your viewing pleasure.

These are the Macadamia Chocolate Chip cookies from page 267 of The Paleo Kitchen. They are to die for and I love making ice cream sandwiches with them. You should try it. Enjoy.

Perfect Paleo Burger
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3
For the burgers:
For the shoestring parsnip fries:
Garnish with:
  • sliced red onions
  • ¾ cup (180 mL) Avocado Mousse
  • romaine hearts
  • shoestring parsnip fries (from above)
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the burgers without overworking the meat.
  2. Divide meat into 3 equal portions and form into ½-inch (12-mm)-thick patties. Use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of each burger. Set aside.
  3. Using a spiral slicer or julienne slicer, cut the parsnips into strings.
  4. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat, and preheat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  5. Once grill is hot, place the burgers on the grill and close the lid. Cook 6 minutes.
  6. While the burgers are cooking, add the coconut oil to the saucepan. Test the oil by placing one parsnip shoestring in the oil to ensure the oil bubbles. Add the parsnips to the oil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown. When the parsnips finish cooking, place them on a paper towel−lined plate to drain.
  7. Flip the burgers and cook for 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. Remove the burgers from grill and let rest for 5 to 7 minutes.
  8. To assemble the burgers, place each on a bed of lettuce and top with sliced red onions, ¼ cup (60 mL) avocado mousse, and parsnip fries.

  1. Looks good, but not as good as your avocado stuffed burger. Still, I can’t help but wish this was sitting in front of me on a plate… I’ll have to see if I can’t whip up something similar when I get a chance. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I live north of the Arctic Circle, so variety produce is hard to come by. Would substituting zucchini, or something like that, be OK for the parsnips? Thanks!

  3. I am Cajun, and my comfort foods are nowhere near paleo. I love muffalatas and etouffee and dirty rice (which is pretty good with cauliflower rice), but the one I miss most is chicken and sausage gumbo. I have tried to adapt different recipes for it with disastrous results. I would love to see a paleo version of a good chicken and sausage gumbo.

  4. What?.. No bacon? Ha ha. This looks fabulous. Patiently awaiting the new cookbook. And the new look looks good!

  5. Can’t wait to try out this new awesome looking burger!! And a book! Congrats! I can hardly wait to get my hands on all the new and exciting recipes in it! And I love the new website look.
    Thanks for all you do!!

  6. Before I went gluten free and then paleo, I used to make apple dumplings with a can of crescent rolls which were wrapped around apple pieces and baked in a butter and sugar mixture. I miss those…

    P.S. I can’t wait to get my copy of the paleo kitchen in the mail!!

  7. Great website! I saved the recipe. I’m on a big gut healing journey – SIBO. I am saving the new recipes for when I can someday try them. Wish me well! See you at the end!

  8. I like the new website! It’s easy to navigate and find what I’m looking for. Thanks for all the great recipes, George!

  9. Burger looks great George!! And, congrats on the book. Look forward to receiving it! Oh, something I’d like to see….some crockpot breakfast recipes. Keep up the great work and congrats again!

  10. Love the site, love the burger….but all I kept thinking is what is Avacado Mousse …. I don’t see that recipe but it looks delicious. In the book, right? :D Great job and best of luck!

  11. This recipe looks amazing and I am going to make it today!

    You said you wanted suggestions and on of my favorite things ever is a Rueben sandwich. I have been looking for months to find a good Paleo bread recipe that isn’t sweet, and doesn’t require a bread maker. If you could help me with my quest for the perfect Paleo Rueben that would be terrific.

  12. This burger looks amazing, George! The website looks great. Navigation is easy. Looking forward to the book release.

  13. Love the new looks! Congratulations on the new look and new book! That burger looks delicious, too! Will be making that in the near future!

  14. Love the new look. Super fast to load all those great pics and handy thumbnails that I use to navigate with! Easy to navigate too. I love that you share your fab recipes as well as the other tasty things from the rest of the paleo community out there. So much to share! Just keep on keepin on with the good stuff, George.

  15. I’m so happy you have a book. I bought it immediately because I love your ebook Caveman Feast. In there everything has a picture and you have a table of contents so I just find a recipe and click on it and it takes me there. So many ebooks don’t have a table of contents or the the click links. Plus I love your recipes in there. I admit I’m hung up on the crock pot chuck roast with the slits in it to stuff bacon and garlic. The whole thing melts in your mouth! So I am sure your new book will be great because your pictures have been great and the thought you put into the recipes and the layout. Way to go George! I also love your enthusiasm.

  16. Oh, yowza that sounds delicious! Gotta agree with Diane re: lack of bacon though haha. Think i’ll try it Slaters-style and add ground bacon to the patty :). Great new website! So clean…

  17. I enjoyed reading your bio….major kudos for what you have been able to accomplish and also for turning your focus from your own self to the self of others. I do think the top of the page is a bit to Flintstone-ish for me….but this is just me. Thanks for being so generous with sharing so many of your recipes gratis. Your new book looks very interesting…but a little too expensive for me.
    Keep up the good work…and keep spreading the good word.

  18. Hey George!
    Congrats on the new website and new book! The burger recipe looks delicious…gotta try it!

  19. Love the look of the new site, and how it reacts on my iPad. There isn’t excessive loading and reloading while it matches the mobile device. Everything looks very clean and crisp! And all your recipes have transferred over!! Yay!!

    Looking forward to trying this. I’ve got the ingredients for grocery shopping this week.

    Thanks for all you do for us!

  20. George, like the other commenters, I’m surprised there is no bacon. Thought I could cook it in bacon grease, but every time I try that on the grill, it just drips through the grates. Will try it this weekend!! Your book is pre-ordered. I’m looking forward to trying that stack of pancakes shown on the cover. Keep up the good work, Sir. And thank you for your years of service.

  21. I agree! This sounds amazing!! I cannot wait to make it! However I am shocked it is missing the bacon!!! Lol

  22. Maybe this is weird, but I just had to have surgery and have so been craving banana pudding with Nilla wafers, so…Paleo Nilla wafers pretty please? Cannot wait for your new cookbook! Your enthusiasm is contagious!

  23. I CANNOT wait for my book! I preordered forever ago and am so excited! I first heard about “paleo” about a year ago and your website and Juli’s were the first two I came across, they are still my favorites! Thank you!!

  24. George CONGRATS!!!! YOU are tooooo cute. Love the website and LOVE ALL your recipes and yes, I’m excited for you too ;-)

  25. What?!! No bacon on or in the burger? That looks amazing, really. Just had to tease you on the bacon ;) I think I would make one w/o the avo and parsnips, and add sauteed MMMmushrooms.
    I love the new header with the buff caveman and the choice of lettering. Also want to say that you are doing a good thing sharing yourself and this information with the world. I watched the video where you jumped on that monster tractor tire… Hell yeah, super caveman! You ROCK!!!
