I don’t have patience for making grain-free, Paleo hamburger buns that require special flour. Too much time for something I’m afraid won’t taste good. Which is exactly how I ended up making this version of Whole 30 Hamburger Buns for Andy when he started the Whole 30 again.
The only way I could see it working was to make it with potatoes. So I used my Polish heritage to work up a potato pancake-inspired hamburger bun. I’m proud to say that every time I’ve made it since, Andy has raved about this recipe. The best thing is it’s super easy, only four ingredients, and holds well as a bun.
Whole 30 Hamburger Buns
Grain-free, easy to make replacements for bread buns.
2 large yellow potatoes,
1/4 small sweet onion, minced,
Pepper, to taste,
Cook potatoes in a microwave until soft, about 6-8 minutes. Split open potatoes and place inside a bowl. Throw away the skins. Add onions, salt, and pepper to bowl. Stir to combine. Using your hands, form four palm-sized patties.In a heated skillet with olive oil, place potato patties in oil. Cook for four minutes each side, or until golden brown and stable. Set aside to cool. Use as hamburger buns or as a base for protein.
