If there is one thing that I have really missed since switching to a gluten-free diet it is a tasty Australian hamburger with the lot. It’s not like I ate them every day, week or month – but when the craving hits there is just nothing like the combination of bacon, beetroot, onions and sauce – magic.

I have to confess that last month I broke down and bought a hamburger at McDonalds Warilla. It was on a day filled with medical appointments and I just caved. I knew what the gluten in the bun would do to me but my restraint had just disappeared. I was riding past the sign for McDonald’s when headed to the car park of Warilla Library when I found myself headed into McDonald’s instead. Despite the fact I knew what previous visits had triggered (stomach cramps, bloating, irritable bowel, discomfort, brain fog etc) I just couldn’t help myself. Sadly the hamburger was very disappointing and I was wishing that it had been a tasty hamburger with the lot.

As I look at the photo I took of the Hamburger with the Lot from Metzi’s Tasty Takeaways it prompted me to make a challenge to all takeaway operators in the Illawarra and readers of this blog


I have found a number of recipes online and online stockists of gluten-free burger buns.
