Forget the buns! These burger bowls are loaded with ground beef, onion, tomatoes, avocado, and sweet potato fries – all served over a bed of greens and drizzled with a “special sauce”. They are so easy to make, healthy, and filling! Paleo, Whole30, and gluten free too!



for the beef:

  • 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

for the special sauce:

for the toppings:

  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • mixed greens or romaine lettuce
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/4 inch fry shape, optional


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat add ground beef, minced garlic, and onion powder. Brown ground beef, breaking up chunks, until no longer pink. Remove beef from skillet and set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, prepare the special sauce by whisking together the mayonnaise, BBQ sauce, yellow mustard, and apple cider vinegar until well combined.
  3. Assemble the burger bowls by layering the mixed greens, ground beef, tomatoes, red onions, sliced avocado, and sweet potato fries.
  4. Drizzle the special sauce over the burger bowl, and serve.


  • To make air fryer sweet potato fries (optional)- Preheat your air fryer to 390 degrees. Slice the sweet potatoes into a fry shape, and place in the air fryer. Toss with avocado oil, sea salt and black pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until fries are crisp to your liking. (You may have to work in batches, don’t overcrowd the air fryer).
