Is there anything better than a juicy bacon cheeseburger?
If you ask me the answer is no 🙂 They are the perfect food and usually a staple on most ketogenic diets.
Ingredients and Substitutions
These Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders are something that everyone in my family can agree on, and seeing how my kids are coming up with new foods that they "hate" almost hourly, that is really saying something!
Here's what you will need to make them:
- Ground Beef - I use 80/20 but you can use lean ground been if you prefer. You can also use ground turkey or vegan ground beef substitute.
- Bacon - You can leave out the bacon or sub with turkey bacon if you prefer. To save time, you can also use precooked chopped bacon.
- Cheddar cheese or any cheese that you like. You can also omit the cheese if you prefer.
- Worcestershire sauce
- Light beer
- salt and pepper
- Keto Slider Buns - You can use my recipe, storebought buns, or even use lettuce wraps in place of buns.
- Burger toppings of your choice
How to make Keto Sliders
To make these sliders, just combine the beef, bacon, and cheese in a large bowl and mix well. Then shape the meat into 12 uniform patties about ⅓ cup each.
In a shallow dish (I used a 9x13-inch baking dish) combine the beer and Worcestershire sauce, then place the burger patties in the mixture to marinate for about an hour.
Cook the burgers over high heat for about 2-4 minutes per side or until they are cooked through. Serve the burgers on the slider buns with the toppings of your choice and enjoy!
How to Store Leftovers
When I make these I almost always double or triple the recipe and put some uncooked patties in the freezer. They make a great lunch and cook up so quickly from frozen on an indoor grill.
If you have leftover cooked burgers, store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat them in the oven, skillet, or microwave.
You can change up this recipe in almost infinite ways. If you are looking for other great keto cheeseburger recipes try bacon cheeseburger dippers, or my upsidedown bacon cheeseburger casserole, or Big Mac Salad.
Cheeseburgers are a staple on many keto diets and they are a great option when dining out. To make traditional cheeseburgers keto-friendly simply remove the bun. You can enjoy cheeseburgers unless, wrapped in lettuce, or on a keto bun
Most traditional burger toppings are either already keto-friendly, or have a keto-friendly version. Some good options include sugar-free ketchup or barbecue sauce, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, onions, avocado, or mayonnaise.
Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders
- In a large bowl, combine the beef, bacon and cheese. Season with salt and pepper and then form into 12 uniform patties (about ⅓ cup of meat per patty)
- In a separate smaller bowl, combine the beer and the Worcestershire sauce. Place the uncooked hamburger patties in a shallow dish, and pour the beer mixture over them. Allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
- Cook the burgers over high heat until they are cooked through and no longer pink inside, about 4 minutes per side.
- Serve on a Slider Bun, and top with toppings of your choice.
