If you like the flavors of Fall, this is the perfect recipe for you! It takes some extra steps, but it is truly worth it.
You can have this burger with a bun, or if you are aiming for something more low carb, just put it in a lettuce wrap or even have it on a salad!
- 1 lb grass fed beef
- salt and pepper
- 2 apples
- 1 acorn squash
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 cloves roasted garlic
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 4 toasted buns *optional
- 1 cup fresh leafy greens
- Smoked Gouda cheese *optional for topping
Start by making your apple chips. I have been dehydrating LOTS of apples, but if you don’t have any on hand or don’t have a dehydrator make them this way:
Preheat the oven to 200 F.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Slice the acorn squash in half and scrape out the seeds.
Rub with oil and place on a baking sheet, flesh side down.
Flip the squash and roast another 15-20 minutes until soft.
For the burgers:
Split your beef into four patties and cook as desired with salt and pepper.
Assemble your burgers in the buns (if you are using them) with the cheese, Aoili, apple chips and greens layered on top of the patty.
