Okay, it’s not a beautiful picture, but it’s my first one, so give me a break. And I know I’m a slob with the mustard. Always have been.

The burger is not my recipe, actually… but one that I like a lot. Kind of an alternate take on the regular grilled burger; in this case, with lamb (that Maureen found on sale at the grocery today!). The recipe comes from Sam the Cooking Guy in San Diego:


This recipe works great with ground lamb, bison, or even pork, though the pork will really up the fat content. With the meal we included cole slaw and a little bit of potato salad.

Total estimated carb count: 49 grams (this counts the low carb beer in the background)
Take out the bun and the beer, and your carb count goes to just 18 grams! Or go with the cole slaw only and no bun, and you have no carbs.

Disclosure: I have received nothing from Sam the Cooking Guy or anyone else for posting this recipe. I just saw him do it once, thought it was easy, and I liked it. Carb counts are estimates only. Check with a registered dietician to find out what a healthy carb count is for you.
