    Did you know that there are bunless burger recipes?

    With these bunless burgers, you will not have to give up hamburgers for keto this grilling season!

    Plus, you might know someone coming to a family cook-out who is on the keto diet.

    Making bunless burgers keeps everyone full and happy.

    You probably had to give up some of your favorite foods while on keto, but hamburgers do not have to be one of them!

    Here are three, simple and delicious keto bunless burgers you are going to absolutely love!

    1. Keto Cheeseburger

    These burgers call for using a large, flat mushroom as your bun- much healthier than your traditional bun and it will not interfere with your diet.

    Portabella mushrooms are the perfect bun size and taste great!

    Here are the ingredients you need, and how they should be stacked on your bunless burger (top to bottom):

    • Fried mushroom bun
    • Your choice of sauce
    • Prepared feta cheese cubes
    • Sliced tomato
    • Sliced onions
    • Beef patty
    • Iceberg lettuce (or spinach)
    • Fried mushroom bun

    This recipe also calls for a marinade for your mushrooms.

    For that, you will need ½ tablespoon coconut oil, salt, pepper, a minced garlic clove, and oregano.

    Next, you will need to know how to prepare your bunless burger.

    Here are all the steps you should take:

    1. Turn on your grill (or stove) to high.
    2. Make the marinade by combining your coconut oil, salt, pepper, garlic, and oregano in a bowl.
    3. Scrape the insides of the portabella mushrooms out and cover them in your marinade. Let them sit until the meat is ready to grill too.
    4. Prepare your uncooked hamburger meat to taste and form it into the patty shapes.
    5. Set the mushroom buns on the grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until hot the whole way through.
    6. Next, grill the burger patties. 3 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
    7. Build your yummy Keto burgers!

    The taste of your fried mushroom buns will mix well with the flavors of the meat and help bring out its taste.

    You may even enjoy this keto bunless burger recipe more than your traditional burger!

    2. Bacon Avocado Keto Cheeseburger

    This is a delicious twist on the above recipe if you are looking to try something unique!

    You will love the taste of this keto bunless burger.

    Here are the ingredients and how you should stack them:

    • Fried mushroom bun
    • Cooked bacon
    • Guacamole
    • Cheese slice
    • Beef patty
    • Sliced onions
    • Sliced tomato
    • Your choice of sauce
    • Fried mushroom bun

    You can prepare the portabella mushroom buns in the same manner as the recipe above.

    These mushroom buns taste great and can be used in a variety of recipes.

    These are the steps you should take to prepare your bacon avocado keto cheeseburger:

    1. Scrape out their insides and marinade your mushroom buns.
    2. Prepare your bacon on the grill (or stove).
    3. Prepare your uncooked ground beef by seasoning to taste and form into patty shapes.
    4. Prepare your guacamole- store-bought guacamole tastes great too!
    5. Set the mushroom buns on the grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until hot the whole way through.
    6. Next, grill the burger patties. 3 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
    7. Stack your ingredients together to build your low-carb burger!

    The bacon and the guacamole add a wonderful flavor to the burger- you will not miss those regular, boring, carb-filled buns at all.

    3. Spicy Keto Lettuce Burger

    This spicy lettuce bunless cheeseburger is a little different from the previous two, it is made for people who love spice!

    Iceberg lettuce is also sturdy enough to make a solid bun and gives your meal a satisfying “crunch” when you eat it.

    Here is what you are going to need to create this delicious burger and how to stack the ingredients up:

    • Iceberg lettuce
    • Sliced spicy peppers
    • Sliced onions
    • Sliced tomatoes
    • Cheese slice
    • Beef patty
    • Cabbage salad
    • Iceberg lettuce

    Before you start making the lettuce bunless burger, you will want to prepare your cabbage salad in advance.

    You can make it whichever way you think tastes best- but basic cabbage salads are made from shredded green and red cabbage covered in a vinegar dressing.

    Cabbage salad can take a few days to be ready to eat.

    Keep this in mind if you plan to use it on your burger, or you could always buy your cabbage from the grocery store.

    Here are the steps you will need to take to make your spicey keto cheeseburger:

    1. Prepare your cabbage salad in advance.
    2. Prepare all of your veggies by washing and slicing them.
    3. Cut the iceberg lettuce in half to use as a bun.
    4. Season your uncooked hamburger beef to taste and form into patty shapes.
    5. Grill the burger patties. 3 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare.
    6. Build your spicy burger! Adding hot sauce can make it spicier and add more flavor.

    Spice lovers will enjoy this hot lettuce low-carb burger!

    You can also swap the iceberg lettuce buns out for mushroom buns- or do the reverse in the above recipes, and swap the mushroom buns out for lettuce.

    However, these burgers were made with the listed ingredients in mind, it just comes down to your preferences.
