Easy Paleo Burgers and Fries

When you start eating healthy foods there are always foods that you crave. Burgers are one of them so why not try this healthy alternative.

Instead of a bun use a portobello mushroom and if you use the cool trick in this video you will also be able to pick it up and eat it just as you would a normal burger in a very unhealthy bun.

I always find that my sweet potatoes stick to the pan but by using wax paper will prevent this.

So Let’s get started


16 oz 90/10 ground beef
salt, black pepper, onion/garlic powder
coconut cooking spray
2 medium sweet potatoes (cut into long strips)
4 medium sized portobello mushrooms (stemmed)
lettuce and tomatoes
4 toothpicks

1. Preheat the oven at 392˚F or 200˚C. Pour the sweet potatoes onto a large baking pan, spray with coconut oil, season with cinnamon. Mix very well with hands.

2. Place the portobello mushrooms into another baking pan, season with salt and pepper, and spray with coconut oil spray.

Once the oven is ready, put both the sweet potatoes and mushrooms into the oven. Cook for 30 min.

3. While the mushrooms and sweet potatoes are cooking, season the ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic/onion powder, and make 4 patties ( 4 oz each).

4. Cook the patties by grilling or cooking on stove top.

For cooking on stove top (no oil needed):
cook one side for 1 min, flip, and cook the other side for 1 min. Repeat until the burger is cooked to your liking. It takes about 6 mins. to medium. After burgers are cooked, let them rest on a plate.

5. Once sweet potatoes and mushrooms are cooked, season them with salt and pepper.

6. Assemble the burgers: mushrooms/lettuce/tomato/burger and fix the burger with a tooth pick.

7. Serve the burger with sweet potato fries.
