How To Make Easy Taco Keto Burgers

Easy Taco Keto Burgers Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Today is the day that we reinvent the burger into a keto friendly taco burger! Did I mention we’re gonna make a keto bun for it too? Lets jump right into these easy KETO BURGERS!

Start this one by adding into a bowl 1 pound of ground beef or turkey. I like either 80/20 or 85/15 for my burgers. Continue with 1 packet of a low sodium taco seasoning mix (make your own mix with the recipe in the video), 1 large whole egg, and a couple crushed up keto friendly cheese crackers or tortilla chips if you can afford the carbs. Mix those ingredients together.

Next go ahead and shape your burgers while throwing a little dimple into the middle of each one. This dimple helps the patty hold its shape when you cook them.

Throw those on your grill for around 4 minutes a side (or however long you want) and a few minutes before they’re done add a Jarlsberg cheese slice to the top of each one!

Remove those from the grill and now it’s time to decide what you’re gonna use for a bun. Whenever I’m following a low carb or keto diet I either go with

  1. A piece of lettuce wrapped over it
  2. My keto bread recipe:

Ready to top them? Some lettuce, sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, salsa, and guacamole all go great on these! With the mention of toppings here…what would you or will you add to these? Let me know in the comments below!
