AIP Burger Night: What to Eat with your AIP Burger?


Tis the season for burgers and backyard barbecues and all that entails. So, what's an AIP girl (or guy) to use to top her burger, or flavor or burgers, or enjoy alongside? What if you're invited to a backyard BBQ and asked to bring something? What do you do when all the traditional condiments are off the table?


Burgers are my favorite food group and I would happily eat burgers every day. For a while, burgers were my go to eating out option and a friend of mine and I explored every burger joint in town....but sadly at many of them my lunch was a plain patty sitting next to a pile of lettuce on a plate.

These recipes will help to ensure that you're AIP burger will be the envy of all of your friends. No need to feel left out when you can top your burger with bacon jam and caramelized onions with a side of broccoli salad and yuca fries and finish the meal with grilled watermelon.

My mouth is watering just thinking of all these yummy burger accompaniments. Get out there and fire up the grill and enjoy your AIP burger night!

If you need some inspiration for the burger itself, check out this burger round up from Comfort Bites Blog with 59 Paleo Burger Recipes (many of which are also AIP compliant).
