Keto Cheeseburger Stromboli


Step 1Heat a skillet greased with ghee over a medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and cook for 3-5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Add minced garlic and cook for one more minute.

Step 2Add ground beef and cook until browned and opaque.

Step 3Add mustard and tomato paste, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then take off the heat.

Step 4Preheat the oven to 180 °C/ 360 °F (fan assisted). Place the shredded mozzarella in a bowl and microwave for about 2 minutes, checking once or twice, or melt on the stove over a low heat. Mix in the almond flour.

Step 5Using a fork, combine well until you create dough.

Step 6Roll the dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper until large enough to wrap around the filling (I used a silicon mat and silicon rolling pin).

Step 7Using a slotted spoon, add the cooked cheeseburger meat mixture in the centre of the dough (do not add any excess juices from the skillet). Add sliced pickles.

Step 8Top with cheese slices. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, make cuts about 1 inch (2 cm) apart on the long sides of the dough. Do not cut all the way to the filling but just within about 1/2 inch (1 cm) of the filling.

Step 9Fold all of the strips of dough diagonally over filling, alternating from side to side, and stretching the dough as needed.

Step 10Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Step 11Remove from the oven and let it cool down for 5 minutes before slicing. Eat immediately while still warm. Recipe makes 8 appetizers or 4 regular meals.

Step 12To store, refrigerate for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving.
