filled burger

As promised, here is the GAPS burger recipe! These aren’t just burgers…

burger filled with tomato paste mixture

They’re filled burgers! The herbed tomato paste reminded us of ketchup.
These are especially child-friendly because the messy “ketchup” is inside – not all over the child’s face and fingers and… 😉

filled burger ingredients

Just three ingredients:
ground beef (turkey won’t hold together)
tomato paste (we used about 3/4 of this can for 2 lbs of beef)
fresh herbs (sage and rosemary from the yard – we used the pictured amount for 2 lbs of beef)

filled burgers

Chop the herbs and mix into the tomato paste.
Form the beef into patties a little smaller than your palm. Put a little of the tomato/herb paste into the middle of one, and top with a second, pressing the edges together to enclose the filling.

tomato/herb filled burgers

Bethany found that forming the bottom patty into a sort of bowl helped keep the filling in. Experiment to figure out what works for you!

cooking the filled burgers

Bring the stock to a boil, reduce to med-low. Lower hamburger in with a spatula. The stock should come at least half-way up the burgers. Cover, and cook for 7 minutes. Flip burgers and cook covered another 7 minutes.

Enjoy!

    Those look yummy, and yes, very child friendly. I’m thinking Emma may want to give those a go one of these days. Thanks for posting this.
