This paleo hamburger skillet tastes like your favorite fast food burger with a healthy twist featuring homemade Thousand Island Dressing. A perfect meal for those that are paleo, keto or on a round of Whole30.
Ever since “going paleo” or “eating Whole30” , I eat bunless burgers like nobody’s business. The truth is, it is a perfect option for almost any restaurant so you can stick with whatever eating habits work for you.
The paleo hamburger skillet takes your burger game to the next level. No restaurant is needed and it can be served on top of cauliflower rice or a bed of romaine or iceberg lettuce.
But the REAL star of the show is my Thousand Island Dressing. This dressing can be used on salad alone but when it’s paired with a burger, some sort of magic happens that takes you back to the days where you probably ate without being conscious of what it was doing to your body.

This recipe also makes at least 6-8 servings which is perfect for leftovers and can be eaten hot or cold. It is also compliant with paleo, whole30 and low carb keto diets!
