When I went paleo for the first time, one of the things I really missed was being able to eat crunchy and fried food. When you eat out, the very WORST thing is the fried food (well and the sugar and refined grains, but thats another story) because the oils are not only heated and cooled many times over, but they are generally GMO seed and vegetable oils, which are very inflammatory and can lead to heart disease, digestive distress and weight gain.

  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard

  1. For the burger: Blend burger ingredients in a large bowl with clean hands. Cook to your liking on the stovetop or grill.
  2. For the aioli: Blend all ingredients except olive oil and chicken fat with hand blender or mini food processor. Slowly drizzle oils in until fully incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keeps in fridge about a week.
  3. For the potatoes: Peel and spiralize potatoes. Heat your oil to 350 degrees and cook in batches, being careful not to overcrowd your potatoes. Drain on a paper towel and season with salt to taste.
