Burger patties can be an easy ketogenic and paleo lunch to make for the whole family. Keep this recipe in your meal planning collection! They are endlessly modifiable. You can combine meat with Mexican, Cajun, Italian or Thai seasoning blends, I’ve never met a spice mix that doesn’t taste good in a paleo burger patty. If you have leftover leafy greens like spinach, kale and Swiss chard or fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, add a handful of finely chopped material into the meat mixture before cooking.
Homemade Spice Blends
Making homemade spice blends is a budget friendly solution to enhance any meal in a pinch. Pun intended! Just a pinch or two of a flavor rich seasoning blend can enhance a meal with little effort. Keep a few on hand and rotate them between meals.
You’ll find recipes for the following in my cookbook The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook:

Rotating your favorite blends keeps simple recipes fresh and tasty. Make fried eggs for breakfast and use a different blend every morning. It will be like 7 unique recipes without any extra work.

Beef heart is a powerhouse of nutrition.
I’ve grown quite comfortable with cooking beef heart. I almost always buy it ground. It is so easy to replace a portion of ground beef (turkey, chicken, lamb, bison etc) of any recipe with ground beef heart.
Recipe Recommendation: Beef Heart Basil Patties
This is new territory for me. I’m quite intrigued by the concept of pan sauces. They are very easy and timely to make. I’ve taken the idea of pan sauce applied it to this recipe here. Essentially, you make a light brothy sauce by adding a small amount of beef broth the meet drippings and butter from cooking the onion. If you want to experiment with thickening the liquid, add a pinch of grass-fed beef gelatin and let it sit for 5 to 7 minutes. This would make it more like a gravy. I haven’t tried it out yet but considered doing it when I made the original recipe. If you do this, let me know how it works out in the comments below.
