Do you like BBQ?

We love the grilling season as soon as the first sun comes out, and the weather gets a little warmer. 

My husband and his friends always buy all the possible meat variations and different sausages there are, and our fun begins.

Summer here in Europe does not last for a very long time and therefore whenever there is a possibility of a barbecue or grill we are all for it. I wish we live in a place where summer is a whole year-round. 

I love snow, but one or two weeks of skiing is more than enough. For me, for the whole year, the rest could be summer and summer and summer.

Do not forget to look at our Sugar-Free Marshmallows or Keto Smores Chaffle Recipe to take with you.

Ground beef is a perfect ingredient to make any possible recipe you can imagine.

If I have time I add and make a Keto Meatloaf, Pumpkin Meatballs, once the pumpkin season comes in. 

Or I just add whatever we have and make Bolognese Sauce go with one of our Keto Noodles or Pasta variations.

Is Burger without a Bun Keto?

I wanted to answer this question because there are still quite a few people asking if there is a hamburger which they can eat on the keto or low-carb lifestyle.

For some people, it is natural that every burger is keto because most of the hamburgers or burgers, in general, contain minced meat only.

But

There are so many products which you can buy in the supermarket that contain flour and various other ingredients you would not even think of. If you make a homemade burger, and you know exactly what you put in then you can make sure that it is Keto or low-carb.

But if you’re buying a burger in the shop, you always have to read the labels. Do not trust any advertising or words written about how healthy that is.

So to answer the question if a burger without a bun is a keto I can say if it is homemade and if it is from our website then yes it is fully Keto and fully Low carb.

What do you call a Bun-less Burger?

The definition of a Bunless burger is a burger without the bun. 
As we all know, all the fast-food restaurants serving burgers offer various bread buns where the burger is placed into the middle and layered with extras like bacon, cheese, and whatsoever. 
But the bun is always there. It has always been like this in fast-food restaurants until the last few years, where more healthy approaches and lifestyle have become introduced.

Nowadays, you will find so many fast-food chains offering Keto burgers or burgers without a bun.

They normally replace the bun with salad leaves and wrap it in the plastic paper.

But there are so many variations you can use if you would like to make a perfect bunless burger.

You can decorate those patties with whatever you wish to, like cheese, veggies, bacon tomatoes, onion, and you can wrap it in salad leaves or any of the vegetable leaves.

You can also use the burgers or Patties as the buns. Use two Burgers and in the middle, you can layer them with cheese, veggies, tomatoes, pickles, bacon, and whatever you wish and desire.

Bun-less Bacon Burgers Low Carb

Want Spicy Keto Recipe for BBQ?

As you have probably realized, most of my recipes are not spicy at all. 

The reason for this is that all the recipes I’m making are made especially for my daughter who has Type One Diabetes, and thanks to the diabetes Low-Carb approach has been introduced to us. 

But if you would love to spice up those burgers, you can certainly add some Jalapeño or Cayenne Peppers or a few drops or spoons of Tabasco.

What can you use instead of Buns in a Bunless Keto Burger?

Even though this recipe is called a Bunless Keto Bacon Burger, you can always add some extra layers to make a full burger like dish.

You can use avocado as the buns replacement and enjoy it for breakfast as Avocado Burger.

As I already mentioned you can use any of the vegetable leaves to cover the burgers and make it a bunless burger.

You can use Portobello Mushrooms which you have grilled in advance and have a perfect Portobello Mushroom Keto Burger.

You can cut big tomatoes into half and use them as well instead of a bun.

Not only that, but you can slice up some pumpkins,  grill them, and use them as buns for the keto burger dish.

Can I cook the burger in the oven?

As I have mentioned, those burgers are perfectly done either on the outdoor grill, kitchen grill, stove top, grill pan, or in the oven. 

If you would like to bake those Bunless Bacon Keto Burgers in the oven, I would suggest heating up the oven to 350 Fahrenheit and baking them for approximately 20 minutes, turning them once in the middle of the time.

Tips and tricks

Juicy Burgers – adding more bacon makes those bunless burgers perfectly juicy. You can certainly add much more, as I suggest.

Spice up – adding a bit of Jalapeño or Cayenne pepper or a few drops of Tabasco will add to the spiciness of those burgers a bit.

Onion – Caramelizing the onion helps those burgers not only hold together perfectly but adds some sweetness to it as well. 

Herbs – You can as well add some fresh herbs if you have those in your garden or any additional herbs you like to use.

How do you store Bunless Bacon Keto Burgers?

Even though those Bunless Bacon Keto Burgers are best to eat straight after they have been grilled, you can store them for later as well.

If you have already grilled them, it is best to place them into an airtight container and straight into your fridge where they should stay for approximately 2 to 3 days, no longer.

If you would like to keep them and use them later on, then they should definitely go directly into the freezer.

And just in case you do not want to make separate Burgers, a great similar idea is to make it into a BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole.

Can you freeze Keto Burgers?

You can certainly freeze our Keto burgers or any other burgers, but I would always suggest freezing the raw mixture. 

As the burgers taste the best when they’re freshly grilled, it is much better to thaw the mixture once you’re ready to grill on the day you need it.

But just in case you have grilled already all the burgers and would like to store, that is also an option.

Cover each of the burgers into parchment paper and place it all into a Ziploc bag and directly into the freezer for easy maneuvers.
