Football season is here. What are you serving up for game day? Gluten Free BBQ Pork Burgers with Onion Rings are sure to become a new favorite.
It's no secret how much I love burgers, such as my Gluten Free Blackberry Balsamic Lamb Burgers. When it comes to building the ultimate burger sometimes you just have to go over the top. These fully loaded burgers will be love at first bite.
Double the Pork
Why just have pork one way when you can double up on all of the savory goodness of the pig? Gluten Free BBQ Pork Burgers with Onions Rings pack flavor and texture in every monster bite.
Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get a little messy when you eat this burger. From the juicy pork burger itself to the crispy onion rings coated in Pork Panko, this is a burger for all of the senses.
These burgers get a double dose of pork that also adds flavor and texture from the addition of Bacon's Heir Pork Panko. Pork Panko contains only two simple ingredients, pork rinds and salt. It's an even one to one swap for traditional breadcrumbs. In addition to being Glute Free it is also sugar free and has zero carbs. It also has a higher heat tolerance making it ideal for grilling.
The Pork Panko also finds its way onto the onion rings. Gluten Free flour and baking powder help make these savory snacks light, crispy, and airy. Make them for the burger, but double up on them because I promise not all of them will make it to the bun!
