Burgers with Liver (Recipe)

Diet Compliance: GFCF/SCD/LOD/FG/Egg-Free/Nut-Free

To make it low salicylate, eliminate the herbs and spices, use only except salt to season.

For low FODMAP, avoid onion powder.

I know this dish may not sound tasty, but these burgers are delicious!  No one will know they are eating liver.  Liver is high level of iron, zinc, vitamins A, C, and B12. I strongly recommend it.


  • 1 lb ground beef 
  • ¼-1/3 cup ground liver (put liver in food processor and blend until smooth) about 2-3 oz.  Avoid any liver that is not thoroughly blended
  • 1-2 teaspoons onion powder
  • Rosemary, white pepper, or other herb or spice (white pepper is lower oxalate)
  • Salt, dash


Mix together and form into patties.  Cook as usual – in a pan, on the grill, or as desired. Since these contain raw liver, cook them until thoroughly done (when they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees fahrenheit).
