Burgers. Everyone loves burgers, right? Even once I made the switch to Keto, I would still make an occasional allowance, as one bun wasn’t going to break the carb bank. But I came to learn that buns, much like other wheat based products, are in essence, just a delivery mechanism, they hold very little flavor, and in the quest for the best replacement, I made these delightful burger boats.
In a large mixing bowl, place your ground beef, garlic, salt, and dried herbs of your choice
Mix it around, with hands is easiest, until the salt, herbs, are garlic, are mixed through adequately
When you’re happy, shape them as your lettuce dictates, and let them rest on the bench while you handle the next steps
Peppers are pretty great, I think, but it’s even greater when pan fried in some butter, so I did just that. Slice yours in flattish pieces and throw them in the pan. You’ll know they’re ready when they have some browning.
If you’re super concerned about your carb intake, you can definitely omit this part.
I prefer my burgers to be juicier and not overcooked, so I cook my patties on a higher heat than most, choose what suits you though
Like any good burger, this one too, commands layers. I start off with the Cos lettuce, and a couple of pieces of fried peppers
Followed up with a layer of delicious cheese
And now it’s time for the patties. I cut mine in half, as once they’d cooked and deformed slightly, they were just too wide.
Avocado is a must in almost all meals, and this one is no exception, and that’s not to mention the jalapeños!
I used a very traditional ketchup and mustard for mine, choosing the lowest carb varieties I could find. Chop and change it to suit your tastes.
I’m so happy with how these turned out, they were just delicious, I was over the moon. I’ve tried many keto friendly burgers, but these are definitely my favorite.
