Paleo burgers are packed with protein, they are low carb, and budget friendly. We’ve assembled a list of our favourite Paleo hamburger recipes using a range of meats including beef, lamb, chicken, pork, seafood, turkey, kangaroo, and buffalo. If you can’t find good quality grass-fed mince, you can always grind your own using a food processor. You don’t need a bun – you can serve burgers with a simple salad, between two portobello mushroom, or wrapped in lettuce.

Burgers are so quick and easy to make, you can always make a larger batch and freeze some for even quicker mid-week dinners! Burgers are also the perfect vehicle for sneaking veggies into your kids dinners.The possibilities for burgers are endless, so use these recipes as inspiration and experiment!
