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!

Ingredients (makes 10 cups)

  • 12 thin-cut bacon slices (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 500 g minced beef (1.1 lb)
  • 1 small brown onion, chopped finely (70 g/ 2.5 oz)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free tomato sauce (120 ml/ 4 fl oz)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat cream cheese (120 g/ 4.2 oz)
  • 6 tbsp sugar-free tomato ketchup (90 g/ 3.2 oz) - you can make your own ketchup
  • 6 tsp American mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (113 g/ 4 oz)
  • 1/3 cup sliced pickles (52 g/ 1.8 oz)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C/ 430 °F (fan assisted), or 240 °C/ 465 °F (conventional). 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.

What about all the bacon grease? I made them and had bacon grease every where. Do I take some out at the 10 minute mark when the bacon comes out?

Reply

Yes, that will depend on the bacon you use (streaky/high-fat vs relatively lean). If it's swimming in fat then it's better to pour it out before adding the beef 😊

Holy moly these look delicious! I may even try and fit them into a Keto bun for a hamburger night. Thank you!

This recipe can also be made in a skillet add your cooked bacon and you can freeze them up in baking cups sprayed before adding cheese in the oven. Great Recipe
