Bunless Keto Burgers

Life has been hectic around here the last few weeks with soccer, work and summer yard work starting up.  Having little to no time to plan or cook a meal we’ve had to resort to shaking up old pre-keto favorites and making them low carb!

Summer time around this house means cooking on the grill! We have a Char-Griller 5050 Duo Gas-and-Charcoal Grill and it gets a workout every summer! We fired it up for the first time the other day to make Bunless Keto Burgers.  This isn’t exactly rocket science.  It’s just a burger without a bun!

  • 1 lb 70/30 Ground Beef Divided Into Four 4 Oz Patties
  • Morton Lite Salt and Pepper To Taste
  • Your Favorite Keto Friendly Toppings!  (Picture is 1 Oz Swiss Cheese, 2 Strips of Crisp Bacon, A Few White Onion Slices, Yellow Mustard and Mayonnaise)

Fire that grill up to medium heat and start cooking!  I generally keep the burgers on one side for 4-6 minutes depending on how thick the patty is.  Once the burgers are charred to your taste and heated on the inside to a minimum of 160 degrees (Food poisoning is bad, mmkay?  Check it with a thermometer!) you’re ready to dress your burger how you like!  No bun?  No problem!  All the flavor of our favorite fast summer time meal with none of the carbs.  Enjoy!

Here is another quick lunch idea that takes 5 minutes to prepare!  I love tuna salad and it’s a great keto meal that has plenty of protein and fat.  Here is what you’ll need.

  • 2.6 Oz Container Tuna
  • 2 Tbsp Mayonaise (Full fat!)
  • Pickles (I used spears here cut in chunks.  Normally I use Vlassic Dill Relish)
  • Mortons Lite Salt to Taste
  • Onion Power to Taste (About Half a Tsp)
  • Pepper to Taste
  • Heinz Malt Vinegar (Optional.  I put a few dashes in because I love vinegar!)

Measure out 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise and place in bowl.  Add your vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, pickles and tuna.  Mix well.  Depending on how much vinegar and juice from the pickles it can be a bit runny.  Enjoy!
