Keto Burger Fat Bombs
Every day, I receive emails from keto dieters who say, “I AM SO SICK OF EATING EGGS.”
I also get emails saying, “Easy recipes, please!” As a certified Easy Recipe Creator (that’s not a real thing of course, but I am the last person on the planet capable of dreaming up a complex recipe), I am happy to deliver an easy, egg-free keto recipe with this post.
Keto Butter Burgers: The Ultimate Savory Fat Bomb
I call them Keto Butter Burgers, and with 10g fat per mini-burger, they are the ultimate savory fat bomb. Have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack — they’re perfect any time of the day! They’re easy to transport and taste great reheated
- 1 lb ground beef (85% lean)
- 3 T butter
- 2 oz cheese (any kind; I used Colby Jack)
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- Onion powder to taste (optional)
- Garlic powder to taste (optional)
In a medium-sized bowl, combine ground beef with your desired amount of salt and pepper. Optionally, add onion powder and/or garlic powder.
Press a small amount of beef (about 1 tbsp) into the bottom of a non-stick, 12-slot muffin pan so the bottom is fully covered.
Add a pat of butter to the top of each piece of beef.
Again add beef to the top. Press to flatten.
Add a small piece of cheese to the beef.
Add a final layer of beef. (It's okay if you don't have quite enough beef left to fully cover the top of the cheese.) Press to flatten.
Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. **If using a silicone muffin pan, place it on top of a cookie sheet before adding it to the oven!**
When the baking is complete, turn OFF the oven and crack the oven door for a few minutes to release the heat. This is to allow the excess oil to cool down.
Please be VERY CAREFUL before removing your muffin pan from the oven because the fat from the beef and butter will be very hot.
Using a fork, remove each Butter Burger from the pan and place on a plate. (Note: Your burgers should be cooked through; if they're not, return them to the oven for a few minutes.)
There will be a delicious beef fat/butter combo remaining in the muffin pan. Save this and use it to drizzle on your Butter Burgers, cook veggies, etc.
