Timani Gluten Free Hamburger Buns
1 lb ground chicken
½ cup store-bought basil pesto
½ cup parmesan cheese, finely shredded
4 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tomato, thickly sliced
1-2 handfuls of fresh baby spinach leaves
¼ red onion, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat grill or skillet to medium-high heat.
Combine ground chicken, half of the pesto, the parmesan, garlic salt and pepper in a bowl (do not over-mix) and form four patties.
Brush oil on the grill (or oil the skillet) and cook patties, about 5-6 minutes, then flip. Ensure internal temperature reaches 165 ºF. Remove burgers from heat and rest.
Brush remaining oil on tops and bottoms of buns and place on grill for 30-45 seconds, or until desired char marks are apparent.
Top buns with spinach, chicken patties, slice of tomato, onions, pesto. Serve and enjoy!
