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
  6. Fill each "meat bowl" with the onion-pepper-mushroom mixture and a teaspoon of Sriracha and Dijon mustard. Bacon Wrapped & Cheese Stuffed Burgers
  7. Finally, top with 1/4 cup of grated cheese. Repeat for the remaining burgers. Bacon Wrapped & Cheese Stuffed Burgers
  8. Place in the oven and bake at 150 °C/ 300 °F for 45-60 minutes (until the meat thermometer registers 75 °C/ 165 °F). When done, remove from the oven and let the burgers rest for 5 minutes.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Thank you Diane!

These tasted great! I did have trouble shaping them, but I was using venison, which is leaner. I ended up putting the bacon into a Texas sized muffin tray and putting everything on top. I poured some whisked egg over 2 cause I’m doing Whole30 and cheese on the rest. A great recipe to keep, but will use muffin tray again!

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

Reply

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.
