Burgers, Grain-free Bread and Sweet Potato Fries

Sometimes you just gotta' have a burger and fries. Mmm.

Plain and simple
I have a similar burger recipe on this site (located here) but this time I decided to have a bread with it. I must say it was a pretty dang good meal. Oh and I will also say: burgers are just better on a grill. Period. Last time we made them we didn't have access to a grill - um yeah there is just something to be said about a good ole' fashion flame cooking your meat ;) 

Burgers, Grain-free Bread and Sweet Potato Fries

For the sweet potatoe fries:

1 very large sweet potato or 2 medium sized

Method: 

Cut into wedges, lay on a baking sheet, coat very lightly and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. At 20 minutes, flip the fries over and bake about another 10 minutes. Turn down the heat to about 180 degrees, brush lightly with a small amount of coconut oil and place back into the oven about another fifteen minutes.

When the rest of the meal is just about done, toss the sweet potatoes in white truffle oil (very small amount - about 1/8 tsp) and place back into the oven to stay warm.

For the bread

Bake the Primal Herb Bread about 1.5 hrs prior to your meal so that is cooled a bit before your slice (can do this at the same time as the sweet potato fries)

For the burgers:

1 lbs ground beef
Dash of ground pepper
Dash of sea salt
Dash of cumin
Dash or oregano 
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp something sweet, I used a but of cranberry chutney

Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly and form the patties, I made three. Grill to your liking. 

Mushrooms, shallots & spinach

2 cups mushrooms of your choice (chopped)
3 shallots, diced
3 handfuls spinach
1/3 cup water
Dash of ground pepper
Pinch of garlic
Pinch of  Greek seasoning


Method:

Heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a medium size pan on low-medium, begin to saute the mushrooms and add in all of the seasoning. Once they start to cook, add in the shallots and water. Cover for about five minutes. Give it a stir, drain the majority of the water (keep about a tablespoon in) and add in the spinach. Give it a stir and cover.

Well, there ya' have it folks.

Enjoy ;)
