If you are looking for a classic burger that can keep you in the ketogenic zone, look no further. The recipe below is just that. It’s a hearty burger made with ground beef, lots of flavorful Cheddar cheese, and other seasonings. Lettuce leaves stand in for buns and serve to keep the burger and toppings together for the best eating experience.
Top the lettuce leaves with mayonnaise and sliced tomatoes in this recipe, but you can add any burger toppings you like, as long as they are keto. Pickles, bacon, and sliced raw or caramelized onions are all great additions. I sometimes like to use a chipotle mayonnaise or add sliced, pickled jalapenos to give my burgers a spicy kick.
