This Low Carb Cheeseburger is simple yet super delish! Enjoy having it sandwiched between a bun (it’s low carb), wrapped in lettuce or sitting on a bed of salad. It’s up to you.
I am a fastfood person. I find comfort in eating burgers and fries when we eat out. When we changed into the LCHF lifesyle, I made sure I find ways to make sure I can still eat my favourite food. Subtle changes like removing the buns & replacing fries into vegetable salad, actually made it healthier and I don’t feel deprived. For me, this is a surefire way to become successful in changing to a new eating lifestyle.
This meat patty recipe is very versatile. It can also be used to make hamburger steak (salisbury steak) & meatballs for pasta dishes. The buns I used is made from coconut flour so its absolutely low carb. It’s soft and chewy and also very easy to make.
Although I only put the basics on my burger, I would love to know what other toppings do you add on yours to take it to the next level.
Meat Patties (makes 6)
750 grams beef mince (substitute with chicken mince or pork mince)
2 medium onions, chopped finely
2 whole eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter, for frying
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients together except the butter. Mix gently by hand until well combined. Divide equally into 6 and form into balls. Flatten until its about 8cm diameter. Press the center of the each patty to make a small dent, this will help to make the patty stay flat when cooked. Set aside.
Heat small frying pan (or a griddle pan) to medium heat. Once pan is hot enough drop about 1 teaspoon butter in the center and place one patty on top. Press the patty (but not too hard) for about 10 seconds to sear. Allow to fry/grill 5 minutes each side.
Remove cooked patty, place on a plate and cover with tinfoil. Set Aside.
Cook the rest following the procedure but make sure you scrape the bits & wipe the oil off the pan before frying up the next patty.
To assemble the Low Carb Cheeseburger you need:
