I have been craving a burger and fries ALL week. Anytime I am on a round of Whole 30, I usually don’t crave much of anything, but this week has been different. This recipe just shows that you can calm your cravings by substituting a satisfying meal that doesn’t skimp on flavor. This burger is almost like eating the real thing, juicy, thick and delicious….then throw the sweet potato fries dipped in approved ranch dressing in the mix, you are set!
When stress comes in my life, I am one to not eat a thing at all or eat ALL things I come in contact with, it’s one or the other. Comfort food calms me and makes me happy and this mushroom bun burger serves just as that, comfort food that leaves me feeling satisfied without all the guilt.
Y’all, this meal is Whole 30 approved and taste majestic….WARNING, you may turn into a “unicorn” after consuming. Seriously though, it’s like combining healthiness and awesomeness all in one yummy burger/meal. Here is how it goes down, 2 large portobello mushrooms (cooked or raw, your choice) covered in Whole 30 approved mayo (use Tessemae’s brand or make your own) along with mustard, tomatoes, red onions, lettuce and pickles, topped with a grass fed burger patty and BACON. Are you drooling yet?
All you Whole 30 and Paleo humans, go do yourself and your family a favor and make this for dinner tonight. Shoot, even if you are a human who eats junk food all the time, that’s okay, you will dig this meal too.
