The ultimate in cuteness! These Mini Keto Burgers with American Slaw are my new go to burger combination. Perfect for New Year’s Eve, a gathering like birthdays, game nights or they’re great too if you just fancy a smaller portion.

Once you have the burger buns, these burgers are simple and easy to make, and the kids can get busy preparing whichever other toppings they want to try!

Recipe Tips

If you make a large batch, you can freeze the buns and then just make the burger patties and some fresh slaw, which will take less than 15 minutes. You can have a delicious low-carb, high-protein snack ready to go in no time.

If you can't eat nuts, you can use our Nut-Free Keto Buns instead of the Ultimate Keto Buns.

Serve these buns with mustard, ketchup and/or more mayonnaise. Here are some sugar-free recipe you can make in just a few minutes:

If you want to serve these burgers with low-carb beer like we did, check out this Guide to Low-Carb Alcohol for plenty of other options.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the buns as per our Ultimate Keto Buns recipe but only making half of the recipe.

Add the mayonnaise, and optionally add some sriracha chili sauce for extra heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine. Mini Keto Burgers with American Slaw

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
