  1. Form the burger patties from plain ground beef; wet hands can help make this easier. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Fry burgers in butter over medium to high heat until they have a nice browned surface on both sides.
  3. Lower the heat to medium and fry a little bit more until the burgers are cooked the way you prefer – rare, medium or well done.
  4. Shred the cabbage using a sharp knife or mandolin.
  5. Serve the burger with shredded cabbage, mayonnaise, radishes, pickles and mustard. Drizzle olive oil over the cabbage before serving.

An insta-read thermometer can help you get your burgers just right. Thermometers vary, but in general: Rare—125°F (52°C) ~ Medium—140°F (60°C) ~ Well Done—160°F (72°C). (For ground meat, the USDA recommends 160°F (72°C).

Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.

    The radishes can be replaced with any low carb veggie of your choice, or omitted completely.

    Dont eat red meat... What can I do?

    You can try ground chicken, turkey or pork, but substitutions will change the protein/fat ratios.

    You could certainly use a frying oil or ghee instead.

    Ghee is butter, it's still dairy. It's lactose free but not dairy free

    This is from the header on our dairy free meal plan page.
    A lot of people who limit dairy will still enjoy real butter, as butter, despite being made from milk, contains only trace amounts of milk protein and sugar. That’s why you may find butter in our dairy-free recipes but feel free to use coconut or olive oil instead.
