How to Eat Gluten Free at a Burger Place

B is for Bunless Burger!

Eating in burger in a gluten-filled world is often risky. You can't see what is happening in the restaurant kitchen and you have to put your trust in a waitress. You pray she'll convey the need for changing gloves, cleaning the grill and keeping all bread items away from your meal.
A few years ago 5 Guys Burgers and Fries opened close to my home. I am in burger heaven.

The kitchen is visible, the cashier yells, "Change gloves! Gluten allergy!"

It's true, I have to eat my burger with a fork an knife, but I don't mind. That means I have extra weight watcher points for those fries!

  1. I often have bun-less burgers (diabetes) only no fries. There's just something about that sizzling beefy-cheesy goodness that transcends the bun and makes a fork inconsequential!

  2. So true, Margi. I don't even miss the bun anymore. It just gets in my way.

  3. Wow- I had no idea! Still looks pretty good.

  4. That looks so good, bun or no bun. I never thought about having to change the gloves...WOW.

  5. tabswritings, there are so many things that have to be done to make sure I don't get gluten. Gloves are the first step. It's worth it though I feel so much better. Diana

  6. Barbara Lynn, it was yummy. I should have made a 'B' with the mustard.. :)

  7. Great post! I don't have problems with gluten, but do better both health and weight-wise when I limit carbs, so I can relate to this! (Although I'd skip the fries, too, as well as the bun.)

  8. I had no idea gluten allergies required a change of gloves in preparation!
    Now I'm craving a hamburger patty. Just the patty...
