Say goodbye to boring paleo burgers with this gourmet recipe! Takes a little extra prep time, but its hot-off-the-grill, crazy-good taste makes it so worth it!
The inspiration for this juicy paleo burger comes from a restaurant here in Phoenix called the Sandbar Mexican Grill.
Hubby and I like to hit this one when the desert temps here have cooled down enough to enjoy sitting outside. The Sandbar is a casual place, where you’ll get imported sand between your toes as you stroll up to one of their high-top tables cleverly made from a surf board.
How could you not have fun at a place like this? Music, sun and a laid-back atmosphere. It’s a great place to grab a bite, watch some sports, and soak up the sunshine.
Our favorite item on their menu is the Jalepeno Burger, served paleo-style. I’ve tried begging waiters for the recipe, but I guess they’re sworn to secrecy. I finally gave up and decided I’d have to figure out what’s in this yummy burger all by myself.
I’ve got to tell you, my version is pretty darn close to the Sandbar’s. Kinda proud of myself actually for breaking this burger’s code.
Of course, I couldn’t leave the original well enough alone, so I added some crumbled bacon to the patty to kick it up a notch, and I came up with a rich, mayo-style aioli topping to go with it.
If you like a little spice with your burger, this is the paleo recipe to try. It’s not five-alarm over the top, but it has just enough heat to raise your eyebrows and warm your taste buds. I think you’re really going to like this burger’s savory, smokey flavor…followed by the coolness of the avocado and aioli sauce. Delish!
With all that good stuff, who needs a bun? Not me. Not you. Gotta save room for those sweet potato fries!
Eat up and enjoy!
