The hardest thing I had to do going on a keto diet was to get used to the idea that cheeseburgers are a no no. Although I am from Morocco, my favourite meal of all-time is a good old cheeseburger, with bacon (duh). When I discovered the existence of a little thing called the fathead dough, I immediately thought: Keto Cheeseburger Sliders.
Let’s just say I will not be missing cheeseburgers any time soon. This is my new favourite.
Keto Cheeseburger Sliders
What is it about a burger that makes people go crazy? It’s such a wonderful combination. Sadly, we all know that not all burgers are created equal. A lot of them are just awful.
Here is what you need to keep in mind, when you’re making a burger, everything counts. You need a good bun, great beef, you need to cook it perfectly and you need to keep it easy with the toppings.
In my experience, a complicated burger is a burger that compensates for a certain lack in key components whereas a simple well executed burger does not need any extra ingredients to compensate for any deficiencies.
Here is what you will need to make these keto cheeseburger sliders.
For the bun, here is what you will need:
- 1 1/2 Cup of Almond Flour.
- 1 Tbsp baking powder.
- 2 1/2 Grated Mozzarella.
- 2 Tbsp cream cheese.
- 1 Large egg.
Making this dough is probably one of the easiest things you will make, and unlike a traditional burger bun it won’t take half of your day. Just follow these steps:
- Microwave your cream cheese and mozzarella and mix them together. Add your egg and mix again.
- Mix all your dry ingredients together and add you to your wet mixture and mix again.
- Form into 6 balls, place on a baking tray and bake until golden brown.
Isn’t that amazing? Only 3 steps to make amazing burger buns and stay in ketosis.
BTW, how crazy is it that I ate 2 of these bad boys and still kept on loosing weight. I love this diet!
Let’s get to the recipe!
Keto Cheeseburger Sliders
Try these amazing cheeseburger sliders and forget about cheat day.
For the burger buns
- 1 1/2 Cup Almond flour
- 1 Tbsp Baking powder
- 2 1/2 Cup Shredded Mozzarella
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tbsp cream cheese
- 600 grams ground beef use 20% fat content
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 slices American cheese I know know, not the best cheese but I LOVE IT.
- Your choice of crunchy greens.
- Your choice of condiment.
Start by making your burger buns
Preheat your oven at 375 F
Microwave your cream cheese and mozzarella for 2 minutes and mix them together. Let your mixture cool down and add your egg.
Mix all your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and add you to your cheese mixture and mix again.
Form into 6 balls, place on a baking tray lined with parchemin paper. Bake until golden brown (Should Take 15 minutes).
While your buns are baking make your burger patties
In a bowl, add your ground beef, salt and smoked paprika. Form 6 patties and make sure that your press the centre of each patty in order to create small crater. You need to do this because burgers tend to swell during cooking.
Heat a pan to medium-high heat and cook each patty's bottom for about 4 minutes and flip. Cook again for another 4-5 minutes. Once perfectly browned. Remove from the heat and top with half a slice of cheese (small sliders don't need an entire slice).
Take your burger buns out of the oven and let them cool completely. Cut open and fill with the burgers and your choice of toppings.
