Prior to starting KETO, the only burgers I would eat were from McDonalds because the patties were so thin they were just about non-existent LOL. The meat to bun ratio was good for me, too much beef and I’d be gagging. I have always had a thing with meat texture so I never did steak, roast beef, homemade burgers. I’m a chicken girl, still am BUT I’ve discovered steak isn’t so bad and I am making my own burger patties and I can say I am actually enjoying them!

Here in Canada finding regular ground beef is next to impossible, it’s all extra lean – yuck!. I’ve been mixing ground pork and ground beef 50/50 and we really like the blend as the burgers are juicy and they grill up fantastically! I usually make a double batch but still mix each recipe separately to ensure everything is well mixed. I’ve picked up a couple of hamburger presses at the thrift store and I freeze the patties right in them. 

There is a video below the recipe showing how I mix my burgers if you don’t like sticking your hands into raw meat. It’s quick and I mix, just until mixed so as to not toughen the patties up, usually about 30 – 45 seconds. Your welcome! 

Keto Burger Patties

Yield: 7 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Delicious and flavorful KETO hamburger patties are great to have in your freezer for a quick and tasty meal!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP prepared mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 pepper
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

Add ground meats to a large mixing bowl and add in the eggs and seasonings.

Mix by hand or use a mixer to gently mix together. You don't want to overmix or your patties will be tough. See my video below for a quick way to mix everything together and keep those patties nice and tender.

Divide into patties - I usually get 7 based on the thickness we like. I love the ease of a hamburger press, but if you don't have one just freeze on a cookie sheet until solid and then put into a resealable bag.

We cook our patties right from frozen. Preheat the BBQ and toss them on. Make sure you cook to an internal temperature of least 160F. A temperature probe is a great kitchen tool!.
