These low-carb cheeseburger cups need to come with a public safety warning. Hoooooly moly, they are so good! Imagine every single little wonderful thing about a cheeseburger, then take off the bun.

Beefy. Cheesy. Tangy. Moreish.

These keto cups tick every single box. AND they clock in at under 3 grams of net carbs! I made mine using oversized muffin tins, so if you have standard muffing tins, you could make even more.

You can have these made and on the table in just over half an hour and they make perfect lunchbox fillers too. Enjoy!

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C/ 430 °F. I sprayed my muffins tins lightly with olive oil. I don’t think this is essential but didn’t want my bacon to stick.

  2. Cut the bacon slices in half (I asked my delicatessen to slice mine half the usual thickness), and wrap them around the inside of the holes in the muffin pans, and then lay the excess across the bottom.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven. Leave oven turned on.

  4. While the bacon is cooking, brown the minced beef and onion in a frying pan, along with the garlic powder, until cooked.
  5. Add the cream cheese and tomato sauce (passata) and stir until melted and well combined.
