This super easy keto, Whole30Paleo blended ground beef, 4 Pepper BurgerFit burger recipe with the Mushroom Sprout Burger Topper made with Koops’ Mustard and SunGarden sprouts is a summer favorite!

My go-to appliance for cooking burgers is the Beefer! If you don’t have a Beefer, don’t sweat it! A regular grill works great for these burgers too. The Beefer gets up to 1,500 degrees, cooks fast, and achieves the perfect consistency for foods. I cooked the burger, bacon, and mushrooms with the sprouts all in the Beefer!

To cook the bacon and mushrooms, I sliced the mushrooms and laid the bacon over them. That way all of the yummy fat would cook with the mushrooms and there was no need to add additional cooking fat. Once the bacon was cooked, I removed it from the Beefer and continued cooking the mushrooms. For the last few minutes, I threw in the Crunchy Sprout Mix from SunGarden. I served the bacon and veggie mixture over the BurgerFit burger and sprinkled it all our Original BurgerFit Smoked Salts. It was delicious!

Trying to get kids to eat vegetables can be really difficult and that is why I love that this burger is made with bell peppers and sweet peppers! You can leave out the spicy peppers in this recipe if you or your kids are sensitive to spicy foods but even if you keep them in there, a lot of people don’t find the spice overwhelming because the meat and vegetables help diffuse the spice. Kids (and picky adults) won’t even know they are eating vegetables and they will be loving it! Also, using sprouts can also be a win for getting a kid to eat vegetables. A sprout is a lot less intimidating to try than a whole vegetable. Sprouts are cute and fun and they make kids curious. Plus, sprouts have such a concentrated amount of nutrients that you don’t have to worry about your kids not getting their vitamins and minerals – a small portion of sprouts will have them covered!

When cooking the peppers for the 4 pepper BurgerFit burger, I used coconut oil but you could use any cooking fat that you prefer to cook with: olive oil, avocado oil, lard, tallow, etc.

One of my favorite mustards to use when grilling is the Koops’ Dusseldorf Mustard. I’m not sure why I feel the two pairs so well together but they do! You can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards, though!

Some of the Koops’ Mustards that I think would be great on this burger are:

If you want to try a different type of sprout instead of the Crunchy Sprout Mix from SunGarden, some of the SunGarden sprouts that I think would be great on this burger are:

My favorite way to eat this burger is over a bed of greens with sprouts and mustard on top. I’ll also throw any of the unused mushrooms and spinach from making the burgers, even if it is already blended, on the greens too. It is so delicious!! I usually don’t even use a salad dressing and use Koops’ mustard instead. If I decide I want a little dressing, I’ll usually whip up one of my favorite jar shaken dressing recipes. My boys (my husband and son) always love making a traditional burger with a bun, pickles, and cheese. If you are wanting to get a little more creative with ways to serve your BurgerFit burgers, we have BurgerFit deconstructed recipes to help you out!

4 Pepper BurgerFit Burger

I always plant several varieties of pepper plants in my garden, and the summer when I created this recipe, we were on pepper overload! I needed a creative way to help us eat some of them. In the original recipe, I used fresh serrano peppers instead of cayenne because that is what I had on hand from the garden. Either works great for this recipe!

Equipment

Skillet
Measuring spoons
Knife
Cutting board
Spatula
Food processor
Large bowl

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cooking fat
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 sweet peppers
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt divided
  • 1/4 fresh jalapeno
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 lb ground meat
  • 2 tbsp Koops' Jalapeno Mustard

Toppings:

Instructions

  • Heat a skillet on medium heat with 2 tablespoons cooking fat. Chop the bell peppers and sweet peppers, removing the center seeds. Chop just enough jalapeno to your desired spiciness. Add all of the peppers to the skillet with ½ teaspoon of salt. Sauté all the peppers until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Once cooked, put the peppers, cayenne pepper, and garlic in the food processor (or finely chop). Let the mixture cool completely. 
  • In a large bowl, mix the ground meat and remaining teaspoon of salt. Gradually incorporate the vegetable mixture into the ground meat. Add as much as you can while still being able to form your burgers as normal.
    *If you end up adding too much vegetable mixture, don’t worry! Just form your burgers and cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Cook burgers on medium heat on the stove for 5 minutes each side or to your preference. Cooking times can vary.
  • Optional: Serve with the Koops' Mustard and SunGarden Sprouts.

BurgerFit and SunGarden met through mutual connections in the same town where BurgerFit is headquartered. Both companies immediately connected through helping people eating healthier. Sprouts are a perfect, simple addition to any mal and we love how well they go with BurgerFit.

    Great recipe for mushroom, bacon and sprout. My husband who is not a fan of mushroom tried this after I made it. Not only did he filled his plate but he also requested that this food be made on his birthday!!!! This speaks volumes on how we all liked it.
