  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion , diced
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey, bison or beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups GFCFSF ketchup (Heinz makes organic that is HFCS-free)
  • 1/4 cup GF yellow mustard (French's is GF)
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 4 Udi's GF hamburger buns, or bread



Set a heavy-based pot over medium-high heat and add a 3-count of olive oil. Add onions and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes until translucent. Add ground meat, season well with salt and pepper and brown well all over, breaking it up with a wooden spoon—about 7 to 10 minutes. Add ketchup, mustard, cayenne, brown sugar and tomato paste. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Finish with a splash of apple cider vinegar and season it once more before serving on toasted hamburger buns.
