|Bacon Wrapped & Cheese Stuffed Burgers

This keto burger is based on the popular Beer Can Burger which is ground beef wrapped in bacon and filled with roasted vegetables and cheese. I used roasted onions, bell peppers and mushrooms and topped each burger with homemade mustard, Sriracha and grated cheddar cheese.

If you follow my recipe, you won't need to use a beer can to make them - a glass works just fine and since beer is a no-no for a keto diet, you'll avoid any temptations that could ruin your progress.

  4. Use your hands to divide the ground beef into 5 parts (200 grams or 7.1 ounces each). Flatten each part using your hands. Then take a glass and place in the middle of the burger to create a well. Fold the meat up round the glass to create a bowl shape. |Bacon Wrapped & Cheese Stuffed Burgers
  5. Wrap 2 slices of bacon round the "meat bowl". Then, remove the glass carefully by gently twisting and pulling it up. |Bacon Wrapped & Cheese Stuffed Burgers

I have tried this and it tasted amazing! Thankyou! Smile


Awesome! I'm glad you liked it!


Can you use Coconut Oil as a replacement for Ghee?  Does that work the same?


Coconut oil is great for cooking and it's a good option if you don't mind the taste. I would personally go for lard, duck fat or tallow.


wow these look great. I'm putting the them on my traeger grill tonight


Thank you, I hope you like them!


These are awesome! Perfect stuffing and so easy!


Thank you Tim!
