Low FODMAP Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe

Nothing says summer quite like a hamburger on the grill. While it would be delightful to enjoy that hamburger on a bun with some ketchup or mustard, the low FODMAP diet prohibits those items. Plus, many store bought hamburger patties contain fillers like onion and bread crumbs, and they’re pretty bland when you don’t have the right sauces.

So how do you enjoy summer grilling again? This recipe. All the tastes are put right into the burger, so you don’t have to worry about dressing it up later. You won’t even miss the bun… I promise.

  • Since ground beef naturally contains fat and grease, buy the leanest available. I usually use 96% lean.
  • While you may want to eat a few of these, be very cautious of your fat intake with the ground beef, cheese and bacon. I can usually handle about 2 and I have to call it quits.
  • Any cheese should work, I tend to use muenster (very low lactose amount) and cheddar most often.
