Low Carb Cheese Burger

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.

Enjoy!


Ingredients:

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
Procedure:

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.
