15 Minute Keto Breakfast Burger

1 Burger342 cals

Today is the day we can now mark as the day a burger for breakfast is completely acceptable! This delicious Keto Breakfast Burger recipe is packed with protein, takes 15 minutes or less to make, and has almost no carbs!

Start by shaping your burgers with some lean ground beef or turkey (I like 93/7 with this recipe). Shaping a burger should be quick and the most important part? Throw an indent in the middle of your keto breakfast burgers using your fingers, this will keep it flat while cooking.

Keto Breakfast Burger Egg

If you’re preparing this keto breakfast burger on the stovetop, turn your burner on medium high heat. Put a little olive oil into your pan.

Once your pan heats up, place your burgers in. Cook them to whatever temperature you like your burgers at (medium or 160F/71C for me). If you want cheese on them, put some on a minute or two after you flip it.

If you want your cheese to melt faster use a lid to cover your pan for around 30 seconds.

Next, take out another pan and fry up an egg with a little black pepper on it.

Wait, WHAT? An egg on a burger? Seriously! It might sound weird to some of you but it takes a burger to another level, I promise.

Keto Breakfast Burger Bun

Last, grab some lettuce, peel off a thick slice that you can fold over, and place your burger in it. This piece of lettuce will act as your no carb bun!

On top of that put some bacon then follow with your fried egg.

Whatever else you want on it is up to you, I almost always go for the standard tomato and onion.

Wrap your keto breakfast burger up, let me know what your put on it in the comments below, and get ready for the game!

Some will say a burgers not a burger without a bun but if you’ve never had a burger wrapped in lettuce, you’re missing out!
