Two weeks into your Whole30, and I bet you’re hankering for a burger right about now. And not just any burger—we’re talking about the biggest, baddest, bacon-iest burger in town: Whole30-friendly Big-O Bacon Burgers! I mean, how can you go wrong with an umami-packed patty made of ground beef, mushrooms, and BACON?
The key to keeping these burgers Whole30-friendly is to use sugar-free bacon, like Wellshire Farms’ Sugar Free Paleo Dry Rubbed Bacon. Not sure where to find it? If you head into your local Whole Foods Market, just go to the bacon section and look for the little Nom Nom Paleo sign. As part of my month-long January partnership with Whole Foods Market, all stores will feature “Nom Nom Paleo Picks”—including my selection for compliant bacon!
Oh, and it goes without saying, but you gotta lose the bun, too.
That said, if you’re dying to eat with your hands, feel free to roast some portobello mushrooms to use as “buns”—they’ll add even more umami to these ridiculously tasty burgers. (And no, this isn’t SWYPO; as the Whole30 call out, swapping in “a portobello mushroom cap for a burger bun” is totally fine on the Whole30.)
Add some slices of avocado, red onion, and tomato, and you’re all set! Isn’t it about time that you make some Whole30-friendly Big-O Bacon Burgers?
A note to my Nomsters: This is one of a series of daily blog posts I’m writing in the month of January 2018 to help those doing a Whole30 to kick off the New Year. Not sure what the Whole30 is, or want info on how to get started? Read my Whole30 prep post—and then come back to Nom Nom Paleo every single day for recipes to inspire, delight, and sustain you on your Whole30!
And remember: Throughout January 2018, I’m partnering with Whole Foods Market nationwide! In all Whole Foods Market stores, you’ll find my personally curated Nom Nom Paleo Picks on the shelves, a rotating menu of ready-to-eat Nom Nom Paleo dishes in the hot bar, and even my famous Magic Mushroom Powder available for sale!
