A keto burger means no bun, but there’s certainly no shortage of flavor! If you’re a meat lover, you need to try this quick and simple burger recipe that makes keto-friendly dinners a breeze, whether you’re on the keto diet yourself or are cooking for another.

Our keto-friendly restaurant is known for its meat, so we grind our own for our burger patties. Two patties go into each burger for our signature one pound burger, keto or not. However, you are able to use your choice of ground beef and preferred seasoning based on your preferences. 

Another fun twist on this burger recipe would be to add jalapenos to the burger patties, or jazz it up with some of your favorite spices. To top this recipe off, simply finish your burger with all the fixings and a lettuce bun. We suggest Romaine lettuce for its hardiness.
